The Huawei P10's camera is ever so slightly inferior to the Google Pixel's
Mobile World Congress 2017 was home to a plethora of new smartphone announcements, but one of the most polished handsets we saw was the Huawei P10. Although just an incremental update to last year's P9, the P10 still has a lot to offer with its snappy Kirin 960 processor, sharp 1080p display, and respectable 3,200 mAh battery. However, out of everything that the P10 brings to the table, the most impressive is its dual-camera system.

Dual-camera packages are nothing new to the world of smartphones in early 2017, but Huawei appears to have really knocked it out of the park with this particular one. DxOMark, the company that's famous for putting all possible camera sensors through the ringer, just conducted its full review of the Huawei P10's dual 12MP camera package. It's score? 87 - just two less than the Pixel's rating of 89.

Google's Pixel/Pixel XL still reigns supreme as the best smartphone camera that DxOMark has ever tested, but a rating of 87 puts the P10 right in line with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Motorola Moto Z Force Droid, and Sony Xperia XZ. DxOMark had quite a lot of good to say about the P10's camera package, stating that it provides, "good exposures", "accurate white balance", and that it managed to produce, "some of the sharpest results we've [DxOMark] seen."

We were quite impressed with the Plus variant of the P10 when we got to check it out at Barcelona a little over a week ago, and if its more affordable sibling offers this solid of a photo/video experience, we can't wait to dive into it even more when it comes time for the full review.

I'm more interested in P10 Plus' camera, with the wider aperture, I believe it will be the best camera in business.

even mate 9 Pro still better than pixel(HDR+) in low light.. it capture more detail, less noise, and better color reproduction (IMO)

A tiny % of unlucky smartphone buyers may have issues
RMA is a thing

In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet

"the sky is blue and water is wet"

Ummmmm.....I hate to be "that guy", but neither of those things are ACTUALLY true.

Snark aside....I get your point :D.

I have a Pixel and have none of those issues. Not saying they don't exist, just that they aren't widespread. And if you're​going by the number of people posting the issue, remember that people without issues seldom post that they're doing fine. So unless the number saying they're affected are anywhere near the total number of units sold, it's not widespread. But at least Google is owning up to the issues and not trying to sweep them under the rug like some companies have done.

"Chinese phones is climbing high. It even better than iPhone"

But is that a new thing? Nearly all flagships from Chinese OEMs have been better than the iPhone since a couple of years now.

Dear iPhoneArena,

The title should have been "The Huawei P10's camera is ever so slightly better than the iPhone 7" (which scored 86).

The Huawei P10's camera is ever so slightly inferior to the Google Pixel's, SAYS DxOMark.

Same people who gave 88 to the Sony Xperia X.

Huh, now you know.

I thought the iPhone was made in China? Wouldn't be that hard to replicate and surpass. The pixel is awesome and anyone complains about it act like all phones made run perfect. We are the OEMs beta testers for life.
