Today, DxOMark published the camera review for the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G and we can say we have a new camera champion. The 5G version of the Huawei flagship takes the crown with a total of 123 points.
Some may be wondering how the Mate 30 Pro 5G beats the 4G version since they have the same cameras. The only explanation is definitely software. Apparently, Huawei seems to have better-tuned the cameras on the 5G version compared to that of the Mate 30 Pro.
The Mate 30 Pro 5G’s score is broken down to 134 points for photo and 102 points for video, compared to the 4G variant’s 132 points photo score and 100 video score. Further analysis of the photo score shows the 5G variant does better when it comes to bokeh, zoom, and night mode. While with video, it scores higher in texture, noise, and autofocus.
Surprisingly, the 4G version is better at taking ultrawide angle photos. DxOMark says the reason for this is a new anti-distortion algorithm that reduces the “effective field of view”.
The review says the 5G version now has a new multi-exposure algorithm for flash shots that helps to improve exposure and details when you take a portrait photo with the flash turned on. Below are sample photos comparing the portrait mode of the Mate 30 Pro 5G and the Mate 30 Pro 4G.
DxOMark says the dynamic range for the mate 30 Pro 5G even though there is no support for HDR recording. It has also improved autofocus so subject-tracking is better now especially in low-light.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G does earn its place as the new camera king seeing as there are visible improvements in the pictures and videos when compared to that of the Mate 30 Pro 4G.
We look forward to what Huawei comes up with next year when it announces the P40 series.
