With this latest news, maybe get a Samsung or LG instead. It seems the US is keen on killing Huawei's smartphone and rising telecommunications clout:
Shui8, 04 Apr 2019To each their own, i respect your opinion. However pixel peeping is not everything. There are ... moreActually, what sets apart phone cameras from one another is the image quality and retention of fine detail at 100% crop, most especially in challenging low light situations.
Call it pixel peeping or whatever you want but you don't compare phone camera qualities by looking at photos fully zoomed out in a phone, phablet, or tablet. Otherwise, you won't see much difference between a camera phone with good photo quality over one with average, excellent, poor, or horrible photo quality.
Having said that, I'd like to confirm what I stated earlier in this thread, and it is no longer solely based on Gsmarena's low light photo samples here, but also now based on my actual comparisons with a real P30 Pro phone and my 2016 android phone with ported GCam with night sight installed: That really, Google camera's night sight is superior to the P30 Pro's night mode or any auto mode on the P30 Pro for that matter, regardless of whether the P30 Pro is shooting at 40 megapixels or 10 megapixels. The detail retention from my phone with Google's GCam with night sight installed is just way better with superior color, superior fine detail and overall, better image quality. I was a skeptic about GCam's Night Sight capability but after having tried it extensively on my phone and after having compared it side by side with the P30 Pro for exactly the same low light scene, I can truly say, there's no comparison. The P30 Pro uses super high ISO's while GCam uses much lower ISO settings but with multiple frame merging. It's really short of astounding for a 2016 smartphone to outperform the 2019 P30 Pro in low light and Google deserves credit for that. Sure both are still rubbish compared to a dSLR's low light photo output with f/1.4 prime lens installed and auto HDR enabled, but hey, this is short of revolutionary for a smartphone with really small sensor size compared to a dSLR's huge APS-C or full frame sensor. To be fair though, the P30 Pro does capture scenes faster owing to its tendency to shoot at mind boggling, detail smearing high ISO's. Maybe a future software update will make it comparable to the
GCam output. (I doubt that though because phone manufacturers would rather want you to buy their newest phone model instead with the new camera software.)
Given my positive experience with Google's GCam night sight then, (even if I didn't own a Pixel phone), would I change my mind and
now recommend the Pixel 3/3XL over the P30 Pro? Sorry, but it's still a BIG NO. There's more to a phone than an excellent low light photo shooter. There's also manual camera modes to contend with, zoom capability, the presence of triple cameras (for photographic flexibility), and a host of many other phone features to also consider in the package (Dual SIM, huge battery, storage expansion, IR blaster, etc.) which the Pixel 3/3XL is sorely lacking given its premium price, but which the P30 Pro has. So there, that's just my opinion and you don't have to agree with it.
Great comparison, but they still have a long way to beat the old masters of Nokia 808 PureView and the Nokia Lumia 1020. Heck, even a Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL can beat some of the phones here.
Night mode and super zoom capability is another story for another day.
P30 Pro with GCam . Imagine Google image processing software together with P30 Pro hardware
To be more precise, a test like this, has to be made in manual mode with same ISO, shutter speed or similar - when you shoot in auto and this changes a lot ... mmmmhhh, the result varies a lot ! Will take more time, of course :)
sonyxz2premiumuser, 06 Apr 2019my xz2 premium has the best low light capture with more natural imagesIt might be a good camera, but to my experience the Sony is very poorly built phone. The camera won't help you when you won't be able to get calls in and out.
sonyxz2premiumuser, 06 Apr 2019my xz2 premium has the best low light capture with more natural imagesCorrection:
my xz2 premium has low light capture with dull / washed out colors
" It wasn't a clean sweep by any means - the Pixel 3 will get an edge here, the Galaxy S10+ and Mi 9 there."
What does that even mean

You did not include lg v40, v50 or g8, afaik, ultra wide was first introduce by LG. 😉
iamSyleBaxter, 02 Apr 2019It's an absolute best! No phone even comes close. Pixel lovers trying so hard to compare it in... morereally?have you even had N808?N1020?N9 pureview?if you don't then stop using the word best
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2019I don't own any of the smartphones reviewed here (S9+, Pixel 3, P30 Pro, Mate 20 Pro, iPhone X... moreTo each their own, i respect your opinion. However pixel peeping is not everything. There are dynamic range, contrast, exposure level, white balance, high iso performance, color reproduction etc. In low lights to be accounted of. And on that part, P30 Pro nails it. As a result, u got a dramatic Leica photography looking pictures without edited using Master AI, in one overall image, without pixel peeping. I'll take that way rather than just pixel peeping, which most people wont even see it.
