In the battle of camera phones, there’s bound to be a Huawei P30 and a Samsung Galaxy S10 in the conversation. And why not? After all, they belong to smartphone lineups that are as stacked up as they come, especially in the photography department.
Priced at P36,990 (around $705), the P30 boasts a 40-megapixel SuperSpectrum sensor with sensitivity of up to 104,200, reconfigured to replace green pixels for yellow to let it produce brighter, more vibrant pictures in poor lighting. It’s paired with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto shooter, which is capable of 5x optical zoom and 30x hybrid zoom. Tucked into the dewdrop notch up front is a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The highlight of the P49,990 ($952) S10, on the other hand, is a 12-megapixel camera with a variable aperture of f/1.5 or f/2.4 to allow for improved photos in dark settings. There’s a 16-megapixel super-wide shooter with a 123-degree field of view and a 12-megapixel telephoto option with 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. The camera hidden on the upper right side of the punch-hole screen is 10 megapixels.
So which setup suits your mobile-photography style more: the one on the Huawei P30 or the system used by the Samsung Galaxy S10? You may think you’ve had it all figured out. However, as many people who participated in our blind shootout between the Apple iPhone XS, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 know, you might just be in for a surprise.
See, that’s the beauty of blind comparisons — we wear our blinders on, throw our biases out the window, and see for ourselves what we truly need.
Whether you’re a person who’s still deciding on which smartphone to buy or someone who’s just plain curious about this shootout, join our activity. There are only 10 sets of pictures, don’t worry! As with our other blind camera comparisons, this one is by no means a scientific test, but it should give you an idea of which device you are partial to.
Which answer did you get? It would be great if you can share it with us!
