The update schedule for Android has long been a problem because manufacturers apply their own user interface on top of the platform and it often takes a long time for new versions to filter through. When you understand how Huawei's camera is able to achieve the shot, it's easy to see why. Countless handsets have proved that more megapixels — and, as of late, more lenses — don't necessarily produce images that are appreciably better. For the iPhone X and P20 Pro, it was 2x and 3x optical zoom, respectively. But how does it compare to current flagship phone, the? Apple claims that the chipset is faster than it's predecessor.
Meanwhile, the P20 Pro is a class-leading flagship with its huge 4,000mAh battery, which can consistently provide about a day and a half of usage. Whereas the majority of handsets have moved to a dual-camera layout, the P20 Pro sports a triple-camera system with 40-megapixel, 20-megapixel, and 8-megapixel sensors. Surprisingly, both multilens phones in this comparison had a much more difficult time distinguishing the foreground from the background, which can be observed along the edge of the subject's winter cap. Sure, they're not crystal clear but being able to get this close and get a fairly usable shot in daylight is pretty incredible considering this is a phone, not a standalone digital camera. What does all of that mean? This happens primarily in daylight shots as photos taken in low-light are more consistent in nature. The Mate 20 Pro features a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera, 40-megapixel camera, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. The P30 Pro also struggles with its portrait mode in low light situations surprising given the camera's strength in night mode as outlined below.
We'd give our preference to the photos by the iPhone because of the lower noise and how they look sharper at larger magnifications. Instead, you have to close the camera, open Settings, and then return to the camera. That includes a 40-megapixel telephoto sensor, which basically means your zoomed photos won't look too blurry, a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor for better detail and sensitivity, and then a standard 8-megapixel image sensor. Though there are little different here, what you should know is that both phones can survive when they are immersed in water for up to 30 minutes. Everyday shots consistently impress, and even nighttime phones are oddly, unexpectedly strong.
Say hi to him on Twitter at. The Mate 20 Pro is better for close-up shooting, thanks to a dedicated close-up macro mode, while having that wide-angle lens is really a bonus for landscape and architectural type photography.

It excels in portrait mode and you can now adjust the depth after taking a shot to achieve the exact level of bokeh — or background blur — you want. You won't be disappointed with either handset in this regard. The front camera now can do 1080p videos at 60fps, and there is cinematic video stabilization available always-on. It even produces a great result when you have a light source in the frame as it brightens the scene and makes for a more even exposure.

We've chosen the Galaxy Note9 for both daylight and low-light comparison shots, while we also took the Huawei P20 Pro and the iPhone 8 for the night scenes. With the P30 Pro's quad-camera array, it has the benefit of being able to see both really far into the distance with a 5x optical or 10x hybrid zoom, and see in the dark with its night mode. If you're a keen photographer you will be very happy with either phone and of course, selecting a phone is more than just choosing a camera. The iPhone's 2x telephoto lens is no match for the P30 Pro.
But overall, the two phones produce photos with a similar dynamic range. In this case, the P20 Pro vacillated between homing in on the green grass and the blue sky, with successive shots looking very different based on the filter applied. This, however, is no longer true with Samsung, Google, and more recently Huawei surpassing iPhones in terms of image quality. It produces the same high-quality images as the wide-angle one and comes in handy when you need a bit of zoom. I know these results may appear unbelievable—general reaction on social media has been disbelief—so I captured the entire photo taking process on video below, showing the results in real time. What does that all add up to? But if you're open to other possibilities, we think the Huawei P20 Pro is the slightly better pick for a wider array of people, thanks to its more alluring price and extra benefits.
There is plenty of resolved detail, the noise levels are kept low, and the dynamic range is way above average. It has Kirin 970 which is decent enough to deliver awesome performance. This mode will also let you adjust the depth of field and point of focus after the shot has been taken. The white balance on the P30 Pro can also look a little warm or yellow compared to the same image taken on the iPhone, although it's not consistent as to when this happens. Both phones have done a great job here in capturing a photo with plenty of details.
However, we said that the performance of the both Smartphones is actually very good, and ordinary users should be difficult to distinguish the nuances between the two. Please follow to read the complete disclaimer. The Max images are a bit less noisy, with true to life colors and have a little bit more resolved detail. Huawei's software pumps up the brightness and saturation to make the dish pop in all the right places — especially compared with the iPhone's dingy and dim representation, which explains Apple's last-place finish in this round. Huawei's phone packs a 6.
Depending on who you read, the iPhone X boasts the best smartphone camera right now. But the depths of the carousel are still plainly visible and well-lit in the iPhone's shot, while the P20 Pro and Pixel cut a much shallower gradation between the highlights and lowlights. The mixture of green, blue and purple on the back is deceptive, and it makes the phone unique. In fact, Huawei has disabled them by default with a recent update, which is definitely the right move. Can Huawei repeat that feat with the? Huawei's camera deftly preserved the spectrum of greens and the roughness of the pot the plant was seated in. These are two of the absolute best smartphone camera setups on the market today, and while we haven't done extensive head-to-head testing between them just yet, anecdotally we see the Huawei P20 Pro's zooming skills and better nighttime shots as giving a slight advantage.
