The Huawei P20 Plus features an AI Image Stabilization feature (AIS for short) for its main 40MP camera. This allows the camera to take long exposure shots (useful for low-light conditions) while still maintaining a sharp and details image without image blur.According to the official Huawei.com...

The Ultra Snapshot is such a fantastic feature. As an enthusiast photographer, I like to shoot a lot. However, it happens so many times with my iPhone that I lose a shot because it takes time until I swipe up and push the camera button, and then the app needs to load and then I need to press the...

Zero shutter lag

Zero shutter lag means that there is a minimal delay between the time you press the shutter button and until the image is captured. So less missing shots compared to laggy cameras (like my iPhone 5S).

Bokeh mode affects both front and rear areas

The P20 Pro has a bokeh mode that not just blurs the background, but also areas in front of the area of focus, which translates closer to a real DSLR bokeh effect.

4D Predictive focus

The Huawei P20 Pro features 4D predictive focus which is designed to help the camera to predict the movement of moving subjects and therefore help to lock on them and make sure they are always in focus.

80mm telephoto lens great for portrait shots

The Huawei P20 Pro has a 80mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto zoom lens, which aside from being great for longer-distance shots, it's the perfect focal length for portrait photo framing.

Up to ISO 102400

Class-leading ISO sensitivity range, allowing the main camera to go up to ISO value of 102400, which is suitable when shooting in very dim conditions. So great for low light photography (but expect heavy noise)

The Huawei P20 comes with a 40MP main camera. Although the pixel count might seems too high, the good news is that this camera uses a large 1/1.7-inch sensor (some website provide a more accurate 1/7.3-inch specification). We don't get to see such a larger sensor on mobile phones every day. A...

This triple Leica camera is the key feature of this phone and what makes it so interesting. The Huawei P20 Pro features not less than three different cameras (Tri-lens camera). The first one is a 20MP monochrome camera with an f/1.6 aperture lens, a 40MP RGB-sensor (Bayer) wide-angle camera with an...

Way too many pixels for the selfie camera

I don't know what hides behind the decision going with 24MP front camera. With f/2.0 aperture it definitely going to suffer when shooting selfies in dim light. Who need 24MP selfies anyway?

Limited slo-mo video recording mode

The P20 Pro slow-motion video feature is awkward to use and also allow very short videos (0.2 second which stretches to 6 seconds of video). This limits the creative possibilities of course.

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a 40-megapixel main camera. Although this camera is capable for using Huawei's "Pixel Fusion" (essentially 2x2 pixel binning) to result in 10MP high-quality low-light shots, when shooting at 40MP, the image quality in dim light won't be that good.The reason for it that...

Slow aperture lens for the tele-camera

The telephoto camera comes with a slow f/2.4 aperture lens. The good news is that the sensor has only 8MP resolution, but it also very small (1/4.4-inch).

Relatively slow F1.8 aperture compared to competition

The Huawei P20 Pro main rear camera has a 27mm f/1.8 aperture lens (35mm equivalent). An f1.8 lens is relatively slow compared to the competition , like f/1.5 of the new Galaxy S9.
