Huawei Mate 50 Pro snags title of best camera phone via DxOMark

iPhone 14 Pro Max? Honor Magic4 Ultimate? Never heard of them. Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the new meta in town, well deserved, maybe?

Recently, the Honor Magic4 Ultimate and Google’s most recent Pixel 7 Pro, which shares the top spot on DxOMark’s best camera list, contested the position.

However, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro, which has at long last made its global debut, has now overtaken both of these gadgets.

Thanks to its innovative triple camera system of 50MP + 64MP + 13MP cameras augmented with features like OIS, 3.5x optical zoom, and variable aperture technology, the Mate 50 Pro has received 149 points in DxOMark’s smartphone camera test.

With 147 points each, the Honor Magic4 Ultimate and the Pixel 7 Pro are currently tied for second place.

DxOMark claims that the 50 Pro features “well-controlled” video in terms of panning and subjectively “pleasant” color reproduction (in excellent lighting), “pleasant” bokeh, “decent” detail even at high magnification, as well as effective auto-focus.

Wide dynamic range in both photo and video modes is another feature that the camera is noted for having.

The test also showed that the Mate 50 Pro had some issues with the white balance and that occasionally its new XMAGE AI processing took a little longer to capture the scene.

The Mate 50 Pro nevertheless received a final overall score of 149 despite these minor discrepancies.

The Mate 50 Pro’s superior camera performance unquestionably increases its value given that it lacks Google Play Services and 5G.

Its €1,199 price tag, which is significantly more than that of the Honor Magic4 Ultimate and the Pixel 7 Pro, may still not be justified.
