If someone told me fifteen years ago that smartphone cameras would be able to capture the Milky Way, I’d probably just scoff. However, smartphones have come a long way, and photographer Daniel Cheong used his Huawei P20 Pro to shoot a pretty epic photo of our galaxy. He shared some details with DIYP and told us how he shot and edited this photo.
At the high end, smartphone cameras get better and better with each new release. It’s almost as if every time a new one hits the streets, DxO Mark declares another new “World’s best” smartphone camera. So Marques Brownlee put five of the best head-to-head in this blind test, for us to determine the winner.
The phones compared in this video are the iPhone X, Huawei P20 Pro, OnePlus 6, Pixel 2 XL and Galaxy S9+, all of which have very highly rated cameras. They’re tested in a bunch of different settings with different subjects.
True to its “Beauty in AI” slogan, the new Huawei Honor 10 doesn’t just boast a sleek look, but also a powerful AI-enabled camera. It has a lot of the same features that an iPhone X has, but for a far cheaper price. Let’s take a closer look and see if it’s as beautiful inside as it is on the outside.
This is the new Huawei P20 Pro smartphone, which boasts what the manufacturers claim is the best ever smartphone camera. Actually, a combination of three sensors with individual lenses, a 40 megapixel (yes!) 1/1.7 inch colour sensor (significantly larger than the 1/2.9 sensor in the iPhone X), a 20 megapixel monochrome sensor (both these sensors are approximately equivalent to a full-frame 27mm lens) and a 8 megapixel 80mm equivalent lens for zooming.
The Huawei P20 Pro, the world’s first smartphone with three rear cameras, has been torn apart by the folks at iFixit to reveal a nice surprise. Above and beyond the published specs, it seems that all three of the phone’s rear cameras feature optical image stabilisation. According to iFixit’s report, only the 8MP telephoto camera in the P20 Pro is supposed to have hardware optical image stabilisation. But they’re not quite convinced.
