The results? Looks more dramatic, exactly as Leica camera does. There are many terms in photography than just 'natural' & 'dull' images, as i explained in previous post.
Now tell me, why every award winning photography in the world, all listed pictures looks not natural at all? Because its already edited, in results for more 'livelier' & 'dramatic' images that tells story. Thats what Mate 20 intended to and its deliver, by collaboration with Leica.
Nothing is WOW

I have immerse my Z2 into water but doesn't get damage, I wash it almost daily not because care about hygienic but also want to proof all the hater doesn't do so to their phone. Everything has been over criticize, why should we care about your opinion. Did you immerse your phone or wash your phone.

Remember when sony advertised their phones can be used while swimming? Then when many people really did it and broke their phones, suddenly sony refused to take responsibility and then sony said not to bring the phones while swimming because the phone is actually not more than just "water splash resistant".
Sony have hurt many people because of its half-baked features and its bad attitude to customers and also its irresponsibility. And sony asked premium price for all of those crappiness.
Dont blame samsung for sony's failure. The reason why sonymobile becomes inferior is because of its own fault.

They said on XZP was seperated mode. Then on XZ3 was not pre installed.
Always finding excuses.
For other phones you swipe to access other modes, same for Sony. But they did not want too.
What a coincidence the low scores came with new protocol. X Performance was the #2 in 2016. Just 1 point behind Pixel.

Sony was making premium phones while Samsung was making plastic ones. Then Samsung FINALLY decides to go with more premium parts, and everyone is praising them. WTF?

The Huawei unnatural blueish water not only present on night but also same as daylight, please refer duration 5:12 the day and night has the same blue even there are no sunshine or sunshine, do you still believe what you see or just blinded by those color trick?

Side by side, looks like a mid range phone (XZ3) vs flagship phone (Mate 20) lol. Colors checked, to my eyes, Mate 20 colors looks identical to XZ3, it just add a bit vibrancy into it, but not to called as oversaturate. And for your info, thats a Leica-style photography. Check out images produced by Leica cameras, it looks identical as Huawei's does, and i kinda like it.
Dynamic range, exposure, details, highlights preservation, contrast, low light capabilities all are on Mate 20 side, base on your link given. And the darker XZ3 images produces with the silhoutte effects? Mate 20 can easily achieve that with HDR off or using Pro Mode, but XZ3 cannot achieve what low light capabilities of Mate 20 can do, even fiddling with manual mod. Simple, u cant beat physics, larger sensor & pixel size on Mate 20 with a great computational on photography. Thats my opinion, and thats why at the moment, i'll stick with Huawei.

It doesnt matter who did first. The most important is who did it better.
I admit sony did many things first, but sony's implementations are often half-baked. Competitors copy it and do it much better than sony. Then no one care about sony anymore.
Zhang Wuji, 10 Apr 2019Protocol is changed based on whats users need. Most people use it and need it. So it's ok to ... moreSony introducing bokeh features earlier than any competitor, but still prefer the realistic not the bokeh added results. For low light, you can't take photo for full dark scene, what they did is only gimmick. The ToF also, who will take photo for two different angles at the same time? The extra zoom in is useful but it also shows no privacy to other people.

Perhaps you're not sensitive to the color, Huawei camera rendering the picture with more unreal cool color. Example https://youtu.be/7ayh4b62YCU
The color on camera 2 is way unusual, you can only see it in Avatar movie, the blueish rendering is artificially especially the water. I just can't find out the photo dishes from my WhatsApp.
Nikjosh, 10 Apr 2019True. The problem with phone camera are night shot, and zoom. I often have myself in the situa... moreWell the Xperia 1 will have not only the additional ultra-wide lens, but the extra telephoto lens too. Plus for night shots the inclusion of OIS (in addition to the EIS they already had) will most certainly improve low-light shots BEYOND anything any previous Xperia which NEVER had OIS has done. No matter what, I firmly believe this will be their best camera yet.
