I prefer a place like DXO mark to get a more professional opinion on cameras.
And yes the p30 is now in top stop for dxo mark. Though selfie came still goes to the S10+.
I think in general the top 5 cameras on dxo are going to be fine for anyone.
If Samsung stopped relying on their legacy, and actually put some effort into their camera capabilities, Huawei wouldn’t stand a chance. Samsung does just enough to be considered a top tier producer. When they started switching things up with the Note series, and the S6 they finally beat Apple at their own game. IMO, Samsung is still the best. Apple is a close second, and only because their handset reception sucks.
People who are running to their brands like pixel and Samsung, just because you can't stomach that Huawei a Chinese company has brought their A game on smartphone photography should for once accept the bitter truth! Whether you like it or not P30 pro is the ultimate smartphone camera king because it shines almost in all areas where others can't keep up, it's the most versatile smartphone camera. Can a pixel and other phones do 5x lossless zoom?? can a pixel do best ultrawide shots?? That's what we call versatility of a camera, every flagship smartphone nowadays cannot disappoint in still photography but what separates the best from the rest is the versatility of the camera. If you even check MKBHD channel who is a pixel fan did a blind test and the Mate 20pro came on top and he admitted Mate20 pro is the king, so you can just imagine what a P30pro can do. Sometimes if you are mature enough always appreciate if a product is good despite your prefered brand, and a gain the P30pro doesn't only shine on camera it's actually an all rounder phone. It has good Amoled screen, good performance and the battery endurance is marvelous and still someone wants to hate! Guys sometimes lets be realistic.
Walter C. Dornez, 27 Mar 2019Agreed. Though, you must admit, it seems everybody needs catching up to do.
Samsung: autofocu... moreSome brands avoid using 4K60 because the Electronic Stabilization does not work for this mode. Processing power is not enough to provide it.
Optical stabilization only for video is a joke. Footage is useless unless you stay still.
Even a very slow walking is enough to make video look recorded by someone with Parkinson ....

LG has the strongest NR, softest photos ever.
V40 has worst AF of all phones since 2012
Missing test in nearly total dark room, the performance of P30 pro in ultra low light situations is incredible.

Thing is, when Pixel & P30 Pro image compared, its a 1 main camera sensor vs 1 main camera sensor used, P30 doesnt even use the other sensors as its for different purpose, the purpose where Pixel doesnt have an answer. (5x optical, 10x hybrid & 50x digital zoom, ultra wide angle, super macro).
Sigh. People need to stop bragging about Pixel being better as its using only 1 camera.

Night sight is unbeatable, everything is miles behind. I was able to install the Google Cam APK on my Mi 8 (with OIS, something Mi 9 doesn't have) and night photos are suberb!
It so clear how night photos on Mi8 are better than Mi9, that was the biggest miss from Xiaomi on this new phone. Chipset aside, performance between S845 vs S855 is meaningful, but honestly, S845 already run everything well and smooth...so at this point, for me what matter on a smartphone today is the camera...and Mi8 has one of the best with a fraction of the price compared to those mainstream ones like Galaxy, Pixel, Iphone and Huawei.
Soo where is the super camera killer with useless mp numbers haha the champs on photography still pixel and samsung. Huawei can't compete in this segment
Whackcar, 27 Mar 2019P30 Pro has by far the most versatile photographic capabilities & delivers stunning images... moreAgreed. Though, you must admit, it seems everybody needs catching up to do.
Samsung: autofocus, farther zoom, dedicated Night Mode, and more preset options to allow the user to choose what kinda default pictures they want, higher resolution and more powerful sensors
Pixel: needs to either figure out how to make one sensor that can do at least 3x zoom and capture a 115* FOV, or just add more cameras, fix it's crappy audio recording, 4k 60
iPhone: needs to add an ultrawide, up the zoom a bit, work on dedicated Night Mode, and perhaps allow for more manual controls like the others on this list
Xiaomi: need to work a little more on the Night Mode, up the zoom, and better audio and stabilization on video. Otherwise, for that price, there's nothing else to really complain about
Huawei: I guess they need to work on perfecting the zoom, as it could be better if they work on it, not to sell it short though. Video needs a lotta work though, like higher fps, audio recording, and maybe just add a camera button. Also, a higher resolution sensor that would default to 12 MP rather than 10 MP wouldn't yield massively different results, but could improve that weird softness I noticed in some parts of the shot
Otherwise though, for stills, the P30 Pro totally wins. For video, it's a toss up between the S10 and XS, with the Mi 9 a very close third. The Mate 20 Pro is also extremely similar and cheaper, so I'll call it the second most versatile. The Pixel is the best for low effort shots though
that front cam fixed focus is really really bad. why huawei still put front cam fixed focus in flagship cameraphone in 2019. wtf
The pictures of the Mi 9 are much blurier than the others at night.
Is it due to the lack of optical image stabilization ?
It would have been great to test it with and without a tripod
Looks like the P20 Pro will finally get defeated. Good job again Huawei.
None comparison with Nokia 808 and Nokia 1020 with new smartphones.
None in Photo compare tool ISO 12233, Studio - Good Light, Studio - Loow Light.
Not even one comparison with Nokia 808 vs Huawei P30 Pro.
