The latest Smartphone camera display how far the technology of mobile phone develop and grow. Its ability with various features included in it gives you the best performance and options to take any pictures that you like. Its capability even is comparable with the professional camera.
To see how far these cameras’ technology can go, we have already tested four Smartphone that is known for its top-quality camera. They are iPhone 12 Pro Max, Google Pixel 5, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, and iPhone 12 Mini. We tested them using three different categories. They are the low light image, zoom capability, and video stabilization. But, before we tell you the result of those three tests, we also try to see its dynamic range as the initial test for these phones.
Phone Dynamic Range
Phone dynamic range is the ability of a phone camera to preserve the detail of the object that was obstructed because of the condition or environment around it. For this test, we try to take a picture of a person standing in the field and the sun is setting right behind him.
The normal camera will create a silhouette image and the detail of that person will disappear in the shadow. These four phones did a great job. It can preserve the detail of the face, even the skin condition of our model. However, Pixel 5 has a little bit negative point, because the image looks rough with many noises. But, we can conclude that these four can do a good job of taking a high-quality picture. Now, let’s move to the test.
Low Light Image Test
The test is easy. We took a picture in the area where there is a lack of light. In this case, we went to Tate Britain, where the Diwali festival was held at night. The result is quite amazing. These four phones can capture the model without any obstruction. However, Pixel 5 still has that noisy grain problem. The best result was the Mate 40 Pro, which wasn’t only preserving the detail and removing the noise but also prevents the lens flare.
Then, we also tried the night mode of these four smartphones. The best result was the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The model looks clear and beautiful. However, if we return it to the basic performance, Mate 40 Pro is the winner. The result of the low light photo without night mode turned on is almost similar to the other three with night mode on. In the first test, the Huawei phone came as the best.
Zoom Capability Test
Next, we also have a zoom capability test. All these phones also have a super-wide lens for easy zoom out the object. Pixel 5 and iPhone 12 Mini has the basic super-wide lens. On the other hand, iPhone 12 Pro Max has 2.5x optical zoom, and Huawei Mate 40 Pro even has 5x optical zoom.
The best result came from, once again, Huawei Mate 40 Pro. The optical zoom offers more benefits than the super-wide lens and digital zoom. We tried to take a picture of a squirrel that looks almost invisible thanks to its fur camouflage that match the tree bark texture with this feature. As the result, we can see the high-detailed image of the squirrel head, tail, and even the fur texture.
Video Stabilization Test
For this test, we try to compare the iPhone 12 Pro Max sensor-shift stabilization with other phone video feature. The other phones use optical and digital stabilization feature. iPhone 12 Pro Max gives the best result for this test. The sensor-shift stabilization feature allows you to record detailed and smooth video for a fast movement like sports. In this test, we try to record the model that is running. The iPhone video stabilization gives the best of all.
Camera feature and capability-wise, Huawei Mate 40 Pro has a much better feature and technology than the other three. We can even confidently say that Huawei successfully presents the next generation camera technology on this series. So, if we take only the camera aspect, we will recommend you to get Huawei Mate 40 Pro for the best result.
Unfortunately, Huawei and the other products from China got US trade blacklist. Therefore, you can’t access Google Play to get the app like you normally do on other Android phones. You need to get the APK file from a third-party provider if you want to install the app. You need to consider this aspect too before you buy it.
