Another of the records achieved by this top of the range is seen in the individual score with regard to photography. The 140 points collected in this category attest well to the quality of the Mate 40 Pro quad camera.

Also noteworthy are the 116 points in the video category and 88 in zoom. The latter is a new category created by DxOMark, where Huawei’s new flagship already shines.

In the category that analyzes its front camera, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is again a prominent leader. With a final score of 104 points, here is the new target to hit when it comes to the quality of selfies.

The main highlights of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro cameras

DxOMark’s main accolades for the Huawei Mate 40 Pro camera are in its dynamic range. In fact, the platform calls this equipment a monster in this category, which demonstrates its quality well.

The cameras in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro show excellent performance in the main attributes of a camera. We have good textures, even in low light conditions, good zoom detail, good portrait photos and good video.

The bad points of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro cameras

You can already see that DxOMark has spared no praise for Huawei’s new equipment, but there are some points where it could be better. One of the main ones pointed out by the platform has to do with the reduced field of view of its wide-angle lens.

Where Huawei could also have done a better job is to focus the images captured with the telephoto lens. There is also some under-exposure in video or some limitation in dynamic range in this chapter.

In short, the new Huawei Mate 40 Pro is the best smartphone you can buy today, if you are very demanding in photography. It will be interesting to know if the Huawei Mate 40 Pro + will be able to stand out from the model analyzed here.
