[deleted post]The thing is, the phone defaults at 10mp fresh out of the box, so Huawei expects it to be untouched by the users when they use the camera.
It's just like their previous monochrome+RGB setup.
The camera defaults to 12mp for best results, and 20mp monochrome is just there to test the quality of one of the cameras.
Huawei defaults the resolution to 10mp as that resolution will make use of all three cameras simultaneously.
They won't put the three cameras there and have only one of them to do the job.
I agree the price is definitely too high, especially considering the CPU is not as fast as the SD835, much slower than the SD845.
Poor video quality..
4K h264 is just 24Mbps. It is too low.
S9 does 45Mbps and XZ2 has 54Mbps.
This phone is awful...
4000mAh + FHD+ screen + amoled but only 89h?
Mate 10 with QHD LCD has same 89h.
Nicolas F, 12 Apr 2018FHD at 400 ppi is [absolutely] enough for any smartphone.But why ppl make critics when Sony has 424ppi or Apple has 404?
But for chinese phones is always okay.
Check the photo tool.
Samples of p20 pro are not much better than a flagshop from 2016
Why the price doesn't stand in cons? I don't even know, which of the three P20's has worse pricing. Existence of expensive smartphones should be ashamed for companies, especially by the reviewers!
And why so many typos?
Seems that Huawei have attended the LG school of image (over) processing.
Looks awful :(
It's also inappropriate that gsmarena writes that Huawei's Night mode algorithm can not do much against ghosting as if that's normal. Google's HDR+ handles ghosting extremely well, so with HDR+ you never notice obvious ghosting despite the same technique as Huawei's night mode.
Gsmarena also doesn't criticize that Huawei's multi frame noise reduction (called "Night mode") is slow because it takes multiple seconds. Google's HDR+ is basically the same technique and also improves the low light performance dramatically. But when the Nexus 5x/6p were released, all people (including gsmarena) complained that HDR+ is slow (maybe ≈ 0.5 seconds) whereas it is much faster than Huawei's Night mode. Strange logic!
Bad review, it doesn't answer the question whether 4k video with the tele is possible. It also doesn't mention that 5x zoom isn't really better than 3x zoom. And they didn't cover the monochrome camera in order to show whether it really helps in low light. And the studio comparison doesn't include the 10 megapixel mode. And they make things up like that Huawei uses the HDR technique of the sensor although Huawei never confirmed this. The Sony sensor of the first Google Pixel also can take HDR photos without multiple frames, but Google doesn't deploy the technique.
The Mate 10 is exactly half the price atm so I don't know how crazy you must be to spend £800 on a 1080p phone in 2018.
Are you guys planning to add the 10mp mode to the Photo Compare Tool? Looks like only the 40mp mode is in there right now...
porkataBG, 12 Apr 2018So only FHD amoled display(i know its enough,but hey, this is a very expensive PRO model). No... morejust buy oneplus 5t. the only thing that is new to this phone is having 3 camera.
So only FHD amoled display(i know its enough,but hey, this is a very expensive PRO model).
Not good audio quality(i don't get it,every flagship should deliver more than decent).
Not good video recording(this is strange,but it is a fact).
Old gen SOC(still powerful, but again its old gen)
Its the best photos(they are the best really) enough to justify the price?
Should i choose this instead oneplus 5T while keeping the rest of my money?
