The Huawei P50 Pro is a top-tier high-end smartphone that users have had a good experience using. I mean the phone cost over a thousand dollars, you wouldn’t expect anything less. But recently, problems began to surface as new updates were released. We are going to take a look at these Huawei P50 Pro problems and get to know how to fix them.
Huawei P50 Pro problems: Battery Issues
One Huawei P50 Pro problem that users have complained about is that after the 188.8.131.52 update, their battery does not last more than 5 hours of casual use. It gives a feel of apps being used in the background when there aren’t any. It is quite frustrating because nowadays you can do almost anything on your smartphone, including work. So for people who live and work on their smartphones, 5 hours is unacceptable.
Fortunately, we have been made to know, by a representative from Huawei, that it is temporary. The system of the Huawei P50 Pro needs to take about 2-3 days to optimize apps and learn the behavior in which you use the device. In about a week, the standby time of the device will improve. This means more battery power for you. Huawei also advised that you use your device’s battery to lower than 10%, turn off the screen and continue to charge the device for more than 30 minutes even after it is fully charged. This can recalibrate the battery of your device and keep the reading accurate.
Huawei P50 Pro problems: Overheating Issue
After the Huawei P50 Pro’s latest update, overheating became a constant dilemma that users face. The smartphone overheats during normal use without doing anything powerful or engaging to the smartphone’s processors. Imagine scrolling through Instagram, or watching a YouTube video and your smartphone starts to overheat. The device also overheats while it is being charged.
Users recorded a temperature high of 35 degrees before the update, which was boosted to 45 degrees after the update, and that figure was within an hour of use. It is a frustrating issue. There are a few ways with which you can improve the Huawei P50 Pro’s overheating problem while waiting for Huawei to release a new update to tackle it.
- Reduce the brightness of your screen. Leaving it on high screen brightness will drain your battery and heat it faster than it normally would.
- Opened apps that are not in use in the app tab can cause your smartphone to overheat because multiple apps that you are not using are running in the background.
- Turn off the WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth when you do not need them. Also, try to avoid putting all three of them, or a combination of two, on at the same time.
Huawei P50 Pro problems: Camera Issues
The Harmony 184.108.40.206 update brought about lots of changes, both good and bad. It came with security updates and performance optimizations but it also came with security gaps, negative effects on the device’s security patch, and ultimately issues with the device’s camera. Users observed that while switching from the front camera, it goes black. And it continues to do so after many efforts to change it.
The interface is reported to be pitch black after restarting the camera for the first time after having an external light source. When the device was rebooted a second time, it went back to normal. To solve this frustrating Huawei P50 Pro problem with the camera, follow the steps below.
- Open Settings
- App management
- Find Camera
- Tap on Storage
- And then on “Delete Data”
Note that doing this will not delete saved photos. Once you have deleted the data, open up your camera and check if the problem has been resolved.
Issues like this usually happen when a smartphone is still getting acquainted with newly acquired updates. For issues like overheating, among others, Huawei will probably fix them when they roll out the next update. If you have unique problems that were not mentioned, comment down below.
