DXOmark gave the P20 a meaningless "109" rating (top Nikon & Sony DSLR's are 100 or lower)
I'm sure it's a fine phone with lovely camera, but phone images are ridiculously processed to 'look sharp' and 'have pop' and 'add bokeh' which takes them out of the realm of cameras and into the realm of point n shoot automatic photoshop devices.
How about a simple good BSI sensor with good glass and RAW output?
(and a replaceable battery!)
It's Tie between S9+ and Huawei P20 pro..
Battery, Camera, Looks and Overall Long term Performance are KEY......?
Anonymous, 04 May 2018More then Samsung?Nope Samsung didn't pay anything DXOMarks, so S9+ only marginally win iPhone X, although in reality S9+ win a lot
Upgraded to the P20 pro from the Mate 8. I'm not impressed with the camera and video performance. Should have taken the Mate 10 pro. It feels the Mate 8 did a better job photo and video wise. Better IQ!!!!
Angel., 07 May 2018In Video mode you can actually make use of the 3x zoom if you choose to record in 1080p. There... moreYou're right. I always thought 4k is 8 megapixels, but I just realised it is in widescreen format.
So 4k is 3840 x 2160.
And 8 MP camera is 3364 x 2448, that means not wide enough.
Another thing I would like to add is, the AI implementation in p20 pro has left a lot to be desired.
AI doesn't mean you Overblow the colours which look beautiful.
It should do meaningful tasks like deciding exposure (for example, if there's a face in pics, it should expose as per the face only and not the entire scene, and if you snap moon's pic it should underexpose so you may see the patterns on its surface), or decide white balance as per objects in the scene.
The AI should also learn from its owner's preferences and choice.
There's good potential, but its not realised yet, from what I understood from the review.
In Video mode you can actually make use of the 3x zoom if you choose to record in 1080p. There simply is the physical disadventage of the 8MP camera that is not enough to capture 4K content simply because of the sensor resolution.
Honestly, I was a bit surprised with the result.
Gsmarena keeps its diplomacy in language, but its clear that S9 has the upper edge...
I wouldn't blame Huawei though.
Samsung have become such perfectionists, they hardly leave a flaw in their flagship features.
Since the Galaxy S5, I've seen only good audio quality, good camera, useful modes, quality displays, etc...
Only their UI was a bit bloat heavy. It still is. But otherwise, they aim to be flawless.
Zenodroid, 03 May 2018Read again. The mate 10 pro 2x zoom beats the p20 pro 3x/5x zoom. I didn't mention anything else. You can't compare them if they're even on different zoom. Make it same (2x), and you'll see which better.
Anonymous, 06 May 2018P20 pro camera not as good as people think.Why ?
Imperator Neubaticus, 02 May 2018P20 pro is still overall inferior to the s9+. Deal with it.Just google it "Zoom, PureView, and more: Lumia 1020, 950 versus the Huawei P20 Pro".
You will be extremely disappointed by the facts, that S9+ crashes, smashes and completely destroys P20 Pro. Every professional will tell you that. Deal with it ;)
AnonD-753178, 03 May 2018Rumours said, that Huawei paid DXOMarks handsomely to get the "Right" results for P20 Pro.More then Samsung?
You guys at gsmarena are amazing. You have better comparasion than Dxo. Well done.
AnonD-756431, 02 May 2018which phone i sould buy between these two or go for anyone better ??Get the regular P20. It will have the bigger pixel size and better lowlight shots. Heck, even the daylight shots in the P20 and P20 Pro are virtually the same on terms of quality. The P20 Pro is just overhyped.

You're right, the P20 in daylight is better than P20Pro, and the night mode generates more consistent results. It may lose in auto mode at night and lacks the 3x zooming.
