Just wondering whether someone have tested P30 against Mate 20 Pro? Got sick of curved screen, inferior speakers and barely working in-screen fingerprint sensor.
vrvly, 14 Apr 2019Cannot forget phones are not just about cameras, other sensors and functions, battery size, ad... moreYes, this is exactly what Huawei completely forgot. Sure the P30 series have a brilliant camera setup and quality, arguably the best at the moment. But I can't justify such a high price tag just for this. Take Pixel 3 for comparison which always is referred as "it's just about the camera phone". But it reality it is certainly not. I admit that even P30 has a better camera system now but everything else, overall phone experience is much much better on Pixel 3. Apart form still top tier (not versatile as P30 of course) Pixel 3 camera, it has outstanding speakers, much better microphone and earpiece, better haptic engine, a way better silky smooth always updated OS where everything works as it should. I want these things on P30 Pro at least and I'll buy it even for the start RRP price.

If you also consider mate30pro will bring something new again, it won't be easy to survive just on the camera alone, even if they were the best.
Shanti Dope, 14 Apr 2019Okay, maybe 1/2.55" is too much for a telephoto lens, but I wouldn't trust a telephoto lens th... moreGalaxy S10+, Xperia 1 and Iphone Xs use the Isocell 1/3.4" 12MP behind 52mm.
Not sure if they all have same sensor or just different with same specs.
To keep wide and tele modules same size, the would have to use bit wider lenses for tele. Maybe 48mm or less, I do not know the calculation.
I saw a scheme one that show if tele and wide had same sensor size, the tele module would be twive the thickness.
1/2.3" = 29mm2
1/2.55" = 24mm2
1/3" = 17mm2
1/3.4" = 13,4mm2

I mean, the amount of light that those cameras could capture are so poor, that manufacturers disable them in low light
Good thing that Huawei's 5x telephoto lens actually works in low light scenarios, so I hope that Sony utilizes something similar to that idea
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2019I was told it os 1/1.5" not 1/1.8" .... Then that'd be even better!
If that's true, then it finally might be the true successor to the Nokia Lumia 1020, which has a similar-sized sensor

I do trust Xperia cameras more than ever now, after they actually proved to us that they can compete at the top, with the XZ2 phones and XZ3 doing really good in low light
Xperia 1's camera setup could be better than most other phones with similar hardware that it's using (maybe even beating the Pixel 3, Galaxy S10, LG G8, and iPhone XS) but I have no hopes of it defeating the P30 Pro, which, despite being too artificial at times, is vastly superior in sheer hardware
Once the Xperia with the 1/1.5" sensor comes out, it will be game over to Huawei if the Alpha team manages to make out the best of that hardware

True that without Bayer it gets more light but sensor tech and processing matters more, ryyb sensor and iso400.000, full size camera with similar specs cost over 5000€. Not to forget failure of triple monochrome camera output in night by Nokia.
While you want monochrome one, take a look how color ones perform, only view20 ultra clarity 48mp could match detail of 20mp monochrome, before that, try to want better color capturing in daylight. All I can say is P30 or pro got the best performance, detail is in most cases better than from 12mp cameras and noise is almost none, it's like dslr in a smartphone world, it's better even compared to mate20pro, it shoots milky way. Be prepared Black hole.
I had the p20 wish I hated. It lags like hell. But this p30 is a different story. Everything is buttery smooth! The kirin 980 and 6gb combo really paid of. For everyday use, it's faster then my s10. The camera is better in some scenarios then s10 and vice versa. Night shoot, the p30 wins by large margin.
Bottom line, I will sell my s10 and keep the p30.
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2019They're talking about the SD855. No, they're talking about S10 Exynos 9820.
For S855 refer to Xiaomi Mi 9 & LG G8 ThinQ in the Synthetic Benchmarks.

Lol, 13 Apr 2019No its not, s10 blows away p30 in everything other than low light photos and zoom.no it doesnt. the p30's kirin 980 is faster and has better gaming performance, has a larger battery and better cameras. s10 has a better screen and 2gb more ram

I've got it from my carrier for NZ$699 with free watch GT - nothing comes close for that price (and free watch on top)!!!
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2019Where do you live, it ain't US, it ain't Europe. Is it Russia or Serbia?For example, in the center of Europe in the Czech Republic is the official price of P30 625 euros ..... Along with GT watch for free super buy.
pajson89, 13 Apr 2019p30 is 200euros cheaper than s10 ,same price as s10e so p30 is better option in every way.No its not, s10 blows away p30 in everything other than low light photos and zoom.
Shui8, 13 Apr 2019In my country, P30 cheaper than both XR & S10e.Where do you live, it ain't US, it ain't Europe. Is it Russia or Serbia?

They need to use a sensor size according to focal lenght and size of module.
That is why Huawei tele os 1/4".
So all three modules can be same thickness.
