Honor V30 PRO Kirin 990 5G SoC Review

By  Evie Loh 2019-12-28 1205 15

[Gearbest Review] Which word is the brightest in 2019? For the whole year, there is nothing better than "5G". In 2019, as the first year of 5G, 5G licenses were issued this year, 5G packages were born this year, and 5G mobile phones were launched one after another this year. 5G fills 2019 with a "sense of speed"! With the advent of the 5G package, Honor's first 5G mobile phone Honor V30 series has also been officially unveiled, and the title of "5G benchmarking" has led the trend of 5G mobile phones.

 

At the beginning of the launch of Honor V30 PRO, we conducted a comprehensive test in terms of design, performance, imaging and Magic UI 3.0. it is not too much to describe it as the official "5G benchmark, not just fast". Today, we are going to do a special test on its performance, so as to better show you the glory of the V30 PRO blessed by Kirin 990 5G. Especially for 5G networks that many users have not yet tried, we will do a key test to see if Glory V30 PRO can hold the 5G benchmark. Needless to say, let's test it first.

5G Test

Honor V30 PRO pro is equipped with Kirin 990 5G chip and supports 5G NSA/SA dual mode. Compared with 5G mobile phones that only support NSA networking,  Honor V30 PRO can be said to have stronger combat effectiveness. In addition,  Honor V30 PRO also supports the most complete domestic 5G band of n41/n77/n78/n79/n1/n3, which really achieves national access. No matter where you go,  Honor V30 PRO can be used as long as it has 5G network coverage. In order to most intuitively demonstrate the 5G speed of the Glory V30 pro, let's first do a more popular 5G speed measurement.

 

This test we used China Mobile's 5G network. Through the test of Speedtest speed measurement software, we measured the  Honor V30 PRO in the 5G network, the download rate is 462Mbps, the upload rate is 72.1Mbps, the ping value is 9ms, and the jitter is 2ms, which is converted into our common unit, the download speed is 57.75Mbps and the upload rate is 9.01MB, showing the characteristics of low latency and high stability.

Of course, this comparison may not be intuitive. We chose another 5G mobile phone that only supports NSA networking. Through the test of Speedtest speed measurement software, its download speed is 315Mbps, upload speed is 79.8Mbps, ping value is 18ms, jitter is 9ms, which translates into our common unit, download speed is 39.38MB/s. The upload rate is 9.98MB/s. From this point of view, Glory V30 PRO 5G download rate has a great advantage, and the upload rate is evenly split.

In addition, in order to give you a more intuitive understanding of the 5G speed of the  Honor V30 PRO, the editor updated all the software that needed to be updated during testing. The number of updates is 33, and the size of the update package is about 1100MB. We will choose the test site in Tiantan, which is already covered by a 5G network. Let's take a look at the download speed.

The whole process lasted about 40 seconds, which can be said to be very fast, but due to the size limitation of the dynamic image, we only show you the download process in the first 10 seconds. In this test, you also need to consider that this is not a download package size of 1100MB, but the accumulation of more than 33 packages, so it will also have an impact on the overall download speed and time.

Of course, in addition to focusing on the 5G download / upload speed and stability of Glory V30 PRO, its web search ability also needs to be tested. We turn on the flight mode in the 5G network coverage area, and then the Glory V30 PRO and another 5G phone turn off the flight mode at the same time, the two can be said to be equal in search capabilities, but if you look carefully, the Honor V30 PRO is a little faster.

 

 
The test of the Honor V30 PRO 5G capability of a certain brand 5G mobile phone search comes to an end here. Let's test its performance, especially the running scores that we are more concerned about. Let's take a look.

A Rabbit Test

First of all, let's take a look at the widely used running points of an Rabbit. Although the running score can not fully represent the quality of a mobile phone, it still has reference value. From the point of view of running points, the Honor V30 PRO Rabbit ran with a score of 488191, leading some flagship models on the market, which can be called performance responsibility. In all aspects, CPU runs 154854 points, GPU runs 169884 points, UX runs 70712 points, MEM runs 92741 points, from the rabbit rabbit Android performance ranking in October, has been ranked first, eye-catching performance.

 

And then we used Master Lu to do a performance run score. Lu Master finally ran a score of 402005, more than 91% of other mobile phone users, including CPU score of 162395, GPU score of 142111 and memory performance score of 54981, which was satisfactory.

 

Geekbench 4 Test

More professionally, Geekbench 4 can directly reflect the strength of a processor, we might as well use Geekbench 4 to test the Glory V30 PRO. After the actual test, Glory V30 PRO scored 3882 points for single core and 12650 points for multi-core, both single-core and multi-core running scores were excellent.

3D Mark Test

To further mine the GPU performance of Glory V30 PRO, we use 3DMark to run a score. In the "Sling Shot Extreme-OpenGLES 3.1" run score, Glory V30 PRO achieved a high score of 6070, and exceeded 99% of the devices on the market. GPU performance shows color, which can meet the tasks of most users, whether games or image processing.

AndroBench Test

In the AndroBench storage test, the Honor V30 PRO has a sequential read speed of 1464.08 MB PRO and a sequential write speed of 441.31MB/s. The random read speed is 221.29MB, and the random write speed is 222.57MB/s. The above test data, for consumers, the actual perception is Honor V30 PRO with faster game loading speed and APP installation speed, with the Ark compiler and other cool techs, can bring a better experience.

Game frame rate Test

In the game segment that everyone is most concerned about, we chose the more popular MOBA mobile game "Honor of Kings" nowadays, because it is a MOBA game, 5V5 group war is inevitable, and a variety of skills are required for special effects on the phone. If you want to play "Honor of Kings" smoothly, if the phone performance is insufficient, there will be stutter, frame drop and other bad experience.

 

 

After turning on the high frame rate mode, in the actual experience, the average frame rate of Glory V30 PRO can be maintained at 61 frames, while from the measured data, the frame rate performance of Glory V30 PRO is quite stable when playing "Honor of Kings". In 13 minutes of the overall game, the frame rate is stable, whether it is smooth online development or 5V5 group battle moment. Glory V30 PRO can bring a smooth high frame rate game experience for a wide range of players.

Summary

Through this performance test, Glory V30 PRO shows the characteristics of Glory V series products, science and technology benchmarking, 5G benchmarking, with a lot of sharp technology, has enough strong ability to bring quality experience for the majority of users. When we are wondering whether the Glory V30 PRO is worth buying, perhaps with its excellent 5G speed, it has given you a satisfactory answer.
