Huawei Mate 30 Pro's camera has been reviewed on DxOMark, and the phone gets a massive overall score of 121 points, trumping the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G by four points and taking the top spot. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro has managed to top the charts, largely due to its great rear camera photo taking skills. The phone managed to score 131 points in the photo department, and 100 points in the video department. The Galaxy Note 10+ 5G now sits in the second position with 117 points.
DxOMark ran its customary tests during the review process, and lauded the night mode of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The report says that the recently launched phone shines for texture and noise – achieving top scores in both – and that it is capable of recording good texture and detail in almost all conditions while keeping noise levels very low.
The phone also impresses in exposure and colour reproduction, and bokeh simulation results show excellent depth estimation and detail. It also notes that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has a 3x telephoto lens instead of relying on the P30 Pro's 5x folded optics. But it says that the new AI-RAW algorithm enables the new phone to record better detail at short and medium-range zoom. The only downside reported is the wide-angle camera at 18mm, which essentially is able to capture narrower field of view as compared to its competitors.
The video score of 100 is just a point behind the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, but it does offer good target exposure, autofocus, and stabilisation. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro lacks HDR recording, though. For its selfie camera, the phone gets a total of 93 points, with 97 for photo and 88 points for video. This brings it into the top five, behind the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Asus ZenFone 6, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, and the Samsung Galaxy S10+.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro sports a SuperSensing quad rear camera setup with a 40-megapixel primary sensor featuring an f/1.6 lens, a 40-megapixel secondary sensor featuring an ultra-wide cine f/1.8 lens, an 8-megapixel tertiary sensor featuring an f/2.4 lens, and a 3D depth sensing sensor. The camera setup supports a Pro-Bokeh and includes dual OIS and AIS. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro sports a 32-megapixel front camera.
