DxOMark has put the Huawei P40 Pro through their standard audio review process, and now we’ve got an actual score announced. Huawei’s flagship P-series device managed to score a fairly surprising 59 in the audio review.
Now, for the audio playback score, the Huawei P40 Pro only manages to get 54 points. This is a fairly low score, attributed mainly to the fact that it’s a mono speaker, its lackluster volume, and movie scene playback not being as good as its music playback.

Thankfully, the score is salvaged somewhat by the device’s audio recording score at 74, which is actually excellent and one of the highest scores in DxOMark. It even outperforms other top scorers like the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Oppo Find X2 Pro.
It’s a shame that a lower playback score sets the device back so much. If it had an at least average score like other Huawei devices, it’s fully possible that the device would be a top scorer. We suppose we’ll need to wait for the next Huawei P-series device for another attempt.
