I will never buy a Huawei phone until they stop copying iPhone interface and other android phone manufacturers design.
I will settle with Samsung and LG for high-end and Xiomi for value for money phones.

Enjoy it. I was just telling you of options which may provide you better photos than when using your Mate 20's built in camera app (assuming you know how to use and optimize those third party camera apps).

Why would I download apps that will affect the performance of the phone or will give me unnatural pictures?
I buy phone based on my needs and as an entertainment tool including for point and shoot photography.

1. Have you ever used your phone's camera in manual mode under low lighting or under difficult lighting and difficult photographic situations?
2. Have you ever used other camera apps (Ex. 'Open Camera' app) that give you better manual control of photography settings (if your phone's camera app doesn't provide one) and better manual HDR options that your phone's built in camera app can ever provide you?
3. Have you ever used third party post processing apps (Ex. 'AfterFocus' app) that give you so much better fake bokehs/blurred backgrounds than your phone's built in camera app in auto or 'A.I.' mode can ever provide you?
4. Have you ever used third party HDR processing apps (Ex. 'Vibrance HDR' app) that give you better control over how multiple images/frames are merged together into one glorious HDR photo that your phone's built in camera/photoediting app can't quite give you?
5. Have you ever sideloaded Google's night sight camera app in your phone (if it is not a Pixel phone) for much better 'full auto' low light photos than your phone's 'night mode' in full auto can ever give you?
If you answered 'NO' to many (or ALL) of the questions above, then a 'midrange' (in your own terms) Pocophone F1 used in manual mode by an experienced user who has a good grasp of photography basics and has sufficient experience using external camera apps / external postprocessing software, is going to get way better pictures with the $300 Pocophone F1 than you will ever get with your expensive, $1,000++ (or near $1,000) flagship phone used in auto mode all the time.
So the question that begs to be answered:
Are camera-centric smartphones priced at $1,000++ truly worth it?
For the very few who don't care about money, who aren't bothered at all spending so much for a new phone (that costs more than a powerful Windows 10 touchscreen HP laptop, or more than a 65" 4K UHD Samsung smart tv), but which rapidly becomes passé/outdated in a year or so, for the very few who will never ever want to learn photography basics or bother learning about manual modes or learning to use third party camera/postprocessing apps outside their phone's built in apps, then YES, these $1,000++ phones MAY be worth it for them.
But for the majority, NO. Certainly not by a long stretch of the imagination--- most especially if that person(s) is/are willing go out of their comfort zone, to learn photography basics, and willing to explore and learn what third party camera apps and third party postprocessing apps can do or provide, which their phone's built in apps can't.

But when I tried to take a photo in a small amount of light, hola! It really works that way.
There should be light.
Please refer between galaxy s10 or p30 pro or lg g8 thinq. Which is good among all in each section software,camera,battery,build quality.
As a video professional this phone intrigued me at first. Coming from the galaxy s8+, where Samsung finally released it's One UI and dark mode makes the phone look beautiful. Huawei still doesn't have any of that, as far I can tell. The video playback is also horrendous. I like to go through a footage and find a single frame, to show something I caught. But It's so unresponsive that it's pretty much impossible and there's no good skimming feature either. It only shows the time that it would skip, kinda like in the vlc player app. It can only zoom about 200% or 250% during playback, so if you want to highlight something like that you again have to use another app. I also tried taking pictures with it, and there were many exposure issues, compared to a lot of other phones. When many reviewers take pictures you can often tell that they were taken in optimal conditions.

But then again, even if you do have a dSLR and only use it with the 18-55mm kit lens it came with and only in auto mode because you never bothered to learn how to use manual modes or specialty lenses, then yes, bringing a dSLR in your travels won't make much of a difference. You might as well sell your dSLR if all you use is the kit lens and all you do is auto mode.

I purchased Huawei p30 pro 10 days before at DNS in russia. I am facing issue like taking photos in super dark. The picture really black many reviews says picture can be taken through super dark.

Night SIght can't even compare to AUTO MODE on the P30 Pro. Second, I HAVE a DSLR and a P20 Pro (P20 not P30) and I wouldn't hesitate to use the P20 Pro for all my travel photography. Some people just don't understand few want to lug a big camera with them everywhere.
thanx huawei but,
all what we are asking is some one who listen
we love ir blaster
we love 3.5 audio jack
we love fm radio
flage ship phones must have them all

Eagle, 08 Apr 2019That what I am searching. It's seems no one have any idea. I contacted Gorilla glass company on why P30pro has no label, here their answer :
