The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been into the center stage since it was launched in the Philippine market.
Its imaging capability is what sets it apart from the other smartphones.
The Mate 20 Pro has a triple camera system that consist of a 40MP main sensor with f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, and Laser Auto-focus, a 20MP ultra wide angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens with micro mode support.
On the front, it has a single 24MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture that supports AI face beauty and 3D portrait lighting.
The first photo is the default interface that you will see when you opened the camera app. Swiping from the left side, you can access the Aperture mode, Night mode, and Portrait mode. While swiping from the right side will give you access to the Video mode, Pro mode, and the other 13 modes like Slo-mo, Panorama, Monochrome, Light Painting, and etc.
On the Portrait Mode, the Mate 20 Pro series now has foreground overlays and background bokeh shapes that you can choose before taking a photo. This also works on the front camera.
So to give an overview of the things it can do when it comes to mobile photography, here are some of our sample photos:
Huawei Mate 20 Pro sample camera shots
Random Shots (Good lighting)
Aside from good sharpness and color accuracy, one thing that we like about the Mate 20 Pro is the very noticeable depth of its focus field.
With the macro mode on the Mate 20 Pro, you can now move closer to small objects that you want to capture.
Zoom test from 0.6x up to 10x zoom
The Mate 20 Pro has a very versatile lenses that you can adjust using single tap depends on the scene that you want to capture. For landscape, you can use the ultra-wide angles lens or activate it by just pinching-out from the normal 1x view until you see the 0.6x zoom.
For capturing far away subjects, the Mate 20 Pro has an optical zoom of 3x, a hybrid zoom of 5x, and a digital zoom of up to 10x.
Indoor Low-light shots
Taking low-light images is not a problem to the Mate 20 Pro! With its Master AI enabled, it can automatically detect which mode to apply to get a better photo.
Outdoor Night Shots
Night Mode is very convenient specially on super low-light environments. By using this mode, the phone allows you to capture hand-held long-exposure images thus making the camera to absorb more lights and produce a good quality image with better exposure and colors.
The Portrait Mode at night has been more fun with the added bokeh shapes that you can choose from before taking a shot. We have noticed that it makes the background darker than it seems in real life.
The 24MP selfie camera of the Mate 20 Pro is noticeably better than the older P20 series. It has better edge detection, sharpness, and improved color accuracy.
