iPhone 11 Pro against the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Huawei’s P40 Pro
If we’re being honest, the difference in camera quality between the top smartphones on the market today is smaller than it’s ever been. Whether you’re partial to the iPhone or happen to be a devoted Samsung user, the reality is that you really can’t go wrong no matter what you’re preference happens to be.
Some people, however, demand the very best. And while not everyone can tell the difference between photos taken on various flagship smartphones, others definitely can. And if you happen to fall into the latter group, you’re definitely going to be interested in this exhaustive camera shootout from which pits Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro against the Huawei P40 Pro, the Galaxy S20 Ultra, and the Huawei P30 Pro.
While Huawei may not be a household name in the United States, Huawei smartphones are incredibly advanced and capable. Recall, the Huawei P30 Pro completely raised the bar for low light photography when it was released last year. Of course, with the smartphone field being something of a cat-and-mouse game, it wasn’t long before other smartphone manufacturers like Apple managed to catch up.
Huawei unveiled the P40 Pro at an online event yesterday, and if the P30 Pro was any indication, there’s a good chance that the P40 Pro could be the most capable smartphone camera we’ve ever seen. There’s only one way to find out, of course, so it’s time to dive into and see which smartphone emerges victorious.
We can gloss over the daytime photos taken under ideal lighting conditions because, let’s be honest, even a mid-tier smartphone can take amazing photos when the conditions are absolutely perfect. The real test to determine which smartphone camera reigns supreme hinges on tests like the ability to zoom without losing detail and photos taken in low-light conditions.
With that said, here’s a quick sampling of how each camera performed in low-light with their respective night mode features turned on.
