Huawei's P20 Pro Beats Galaxy S9, iPhone X & Pixel 2 In New Camera Test 1
Huawei recently launched its new flagship smartphones the P20 and P20 Pro with its best kirin processor and  a notched screen like the iPhone X.  However, the phone is actually  focused on photography: the P20 Pro has a triple camera, with a 40-megapixel sensor.

In the DxOMark test, which analyzes the cameras of smartphones in depth, the P20 Pro reached 109 points. It beat the Galaxy S9+ (99 points), former leader of the rankings, Google Pixel 2 (98 points) and iPhone X (97 points). The Huawei P20, which features a dual camera and a 20-megapixel sensor, also performed well in the ratings with 102 points.

The P20 Pro’s triple camera sports a 20 MP monochrome sensor with f/1.6 lens, an 8 MP sensor with f/2.4 telephoto lens and a 40 MP sensor with f/1.8 lens. The latter has an area of 1/1.78 inches, which is double of the Galaxy S9 sensor (1/2.55 inches), and captures 20% more light, compensating for the smaller aperture of the lens.

According to the DxOMark  , the large sensor in the main camera combined with the black and white sensor allows excellent performance in low light.

The camera is good at practically everything, according to DxOMark: the noise is well controlled; autofocus is fast and accurate; the dynamic range is wide especially with plenty of light, and the bokeh effect (background blur) is excellent.

Of course there are a couple of flaws – HDR; exposure instabilities , white balance when zoom is activated; and orange or pink markings under strong light and indoors.

This is definitely one device I will want to get my hands on any day. What do you think is 40MP enough for you?

Google has been working round the clock to release the next version of Android and now Android 10 (Android Q) beta is now available for Tecno Spark 3 Pro and about 20 other smartphones.

It’s rather interesting to see a Tecno Spark 3 Pro added to the list of devices that are available for Google’s Android Q beta program but I’m still skeptical if it’s going to work well for now, not just on the Tecno but some other devices on the list.

If you have been following up the Android Q features lately you’ll know that Android 10 comes with a couple of new features – A native screen recording feature and of course dark mode.
