DxO marking is BS.. Use your eyes and check these out.
DxO marks: 808-49 vs Note 8-65
DxO marks: 808-49 vs XZ Premium-68
DxO marks 808-49 vs iPhone 8-64
While clearly in all these samples Nokia 808 had better details and should be scored higher.
DxO = paid advertisement
Best camera but wasted with so many sensors and price is horrible, no 3.5 outdated chipset, to buy it only for camera, you really need to be some kind of camera guru

They are on DisplayMate level now.

Look at this image for example (The image is from http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/huawei_p20_pro_review/preview_images)
This photo actually manages to capture every single bit of details without smudging them out... And of course this is with beauty mode off.

After that their ranking method became a totally biased mess. Their new protocol seems to be slightly better but that doesn't really help to redeem their reputation in the past. There's no doubt that P20 Pro has one of the best camera in the smartphone market right now, but I'll wait for the real life picture samples from this phone with FINAL, retail software to see how it really performs in real-life conditions, compared to phones like S9+, U11+ etc.
Umesh k, 29 Mar 2018This has 40mp at 1 om size pixels. 808 had 1.4 om.... this cannot beat 808... 808 is still the kingLack of image stabiliser and advanced processing like multi-frame NR or HDR can result in worse details and dynamic range in many situations, though. 808 is easily one of the best among all mobile phone camera if you're a type of person who always shoots images on tripod in raw format and edit them in Photoshop, but it is far from being great for just point-and-shoot purpose especially at night.
Is Angie going to review this P20 pro when it reaches HQ? :)
Or she prefers s9+?
Is Will gonna do it?

Only HTC does that lol

All other manufacturer have smaller sensors but they make it up by using computational software.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018No one can deny that the best phones are made by Chinese...They received German help so it's not entirely Chinese but they are making big strives

Scores do not equate to real performance of cameras, and are released circumstantialy for product release, as it can be seen in this case. Simple as that.
Theres my "shut up".
You are quite a rude fella.

Get a life Man! At least dxo mark is company which entails camera professionals who always test these devices? So what can you offer as an individual? Just too much talk behaving as if you have a idea about something but you just clueless!! You can go and train dxo mark employees on how to test cameras then. Or else shut up!!
Both images suffer from severe over processing and too much noise? DXO mark, is it just another overrated marketing trick?
What's with the beauty mode being active in the DXO shots? The photos of the pixel and iphone show detail in the girl's face, but not on the huawei's, does DXO check the settings before comparing or they use the factory defaults or can't be turned off?
It's funny how every new phone only focuses on camera, bacause performace-wise there's almost nothing to improve. Yet a phone is still a phone, not a camera. I don't want an expensive phone because of its "awesome" camera because I have a dslr already

I am still using it now in fact and I can't wait to see if the P20 Pro can finally beat the 808's reign after 6 years
