The Huawei Mate 30 Pro has the best smartphone camera on the market today, according to independent image authority DxOMark.

In their review posted yesterday (26th September), the website gave the Chinese tech giant’s latest flagship phone an overall score of 121 — a whole four points over the previous no. 1, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.

“The Mate 30 Pro sets an impressive new benchmark for smartphone camera performance, and is the device to beat in the second half of 2019,” the review said in its closing remarks.

So what exactly does the Mate 30 Pro excel in? Well…pretty much everything, really —  throughout DxOMark’s rigorous testing process, the phone set new benchmarks for a number of categories such as exposure, autofocus and night photography, to name a few.

Two areas that the phone really excelled in, however, were texture and noise. Reducing the graininess in a photo typically results in a loss of detail and vice versa, but the Mate 30 Pro managed to produce sharp images even in low-light conditions.

The Mate 30 Pro also does pretty well at video too, coming in at just one point under the Note 10+ 5G. Much like its photos the phone offers fast and accurate autofocus, produces vivid colours, and once again strikes the perfect balance between texture and noise.

An endorsement from DxOMark is a huge win for the Mate 30 Pro (their word is pretty much law when it comes to photography), and now that it’s possible to install Google Mobile Services on the phone it just might be able to beat the controversy surrounding it.
