Huawei: optical zoom and night mode

With the introduction of the P30 Pro, Huawei has set a new standard in the area of cameras. The phone has a camera with 5x optical zoom, which allows you to zoom in a great distance without the loss of quality. On top of that, the smartphone also takes sharp photos and videos in the dark. This camera's artificial intelligence recognizes what's on the picture and adjusts the settings accordingly. As a result, the colors in the photo sometimes seem overly vivid.

Samsung: realistic and detailed photos

Samsung's top smartphones are known for their good cameras. The S10 model also takes razor-sharp photos with its triple camera. The colors and details are so realistic that it seems like you're seeing the scene in the picture with your own eyes. And thanks to the excellent image stabilization, you'll rarely have blurry pictures. On top of that, the best Samsung smartphones have a variable aperture. This makes sure the camera automatically adjusts itself to the ambient light, so you can take sharper pictures.

Samsung's design is luxurious, while Huawei offers variation with striking colors. In terms of cameras, the brands also have different qualities. Huawei distinguishes itself with the optical zoom and an excellent night mode. Samsung's smartphones, on the other hand, take sharp, detailed, realistic photos.
