Huawei's P20 Pro Beats Galaxy S9, iPhone X & Pixel 2 In New Camera Test


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?
