The Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Galaxy S10’s photography offering share much in common.
That is because both employ a main, telephoto and wide-angle sensor that combine to deliver an incredibly diverse camera array.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro certainly has an advantage over the Galaxy S10 on paper thanks to the higher megapixel count on both its main and wide-angle unit.
It is worth noting the Galaxy S10’s telephoto sensor does have a higher megapixel count than that offered by the Chinese handset.
However, smartphone photography is certainly as much about great camera software as it is hardware.
Both the Mate 20 Pro and Galaxy S10 boast great processing capabilities that allows them to deliver incredible shots.
One of the best features about the Huawei flagship is its night mode that allows it to take laudably detailed and bright snaps in low-light conditions.
While the Galaxy S10 does have a night mode, it is embedded inside the phone’s automatic scene optimiser.
This means the user is not able to take advantage of the phone’s low-light functionality whenever they want, instead limiting its deployment to only when the S10 thinks it is needed.
Even when the Samsung software is being used it certainly is not as capable as its rivals, as Express.co.uk noted in our review for the product.
And now it appears the Galaxy S10 has suffered a defeat to the Mate 20 Pro following the emergence of a new camera comparison between the two.
Alex Stead, a photographer on Instagram, recently took to the social network and posted an image of London’s Tower Bridge at night using both the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10.
Huawei’s offering was shown to be brighter, sharper and retained more details.
Moreover, many of the lights from the landmark were blown out on the Galaxy S10 while the Mate 20 Pro was able to handle them much better.
While both images look great and will certainly not disappoint owners of either device, the Mate 20 Pro is the clear winner in the low-light test.
The victory for the Mate 20 Pro over the S10 comes shortly ahead of Huawei’s debut of the P30 Pro the firm has heavily suggested will boast numerous camera improvements for Android fans.
The firm’s hardware event will take place in the French capital of Paris on March 26.
Express.co.uk is attending proceedings and will be bringing you all the announcements as they happen.
