Huawei P30 is killing the smartphone game, especially in low light photography, followed closely by the Pixel. Samsung as usual comes in a distant third place.

Wow, fair play to Huawei/Leica they really have come a long way, though I’m not surprised with their ambitions. What I’m really shocked to seen here is how Samsung have now fallen behind so much here. The S10+ is a beautiful device with the best screen / hole punch setup, but I’m disappointed by the S10+ night time shots here, Yikes! ...I wonder why they never felt the need to improve the camera much from the S9? Surely they knew Huawei and Google were gonna bring it?

Many reviewers are reporting that night mode is not required for the pep pro, why don't you compare the results also without the night mode to see how good the camera is without the processing waiting issue?

For one lens the PXL3 did great, the P30+ captured more light and slightly better picture quality but as a pixel user, not a super big deal. Really can’t wait til the fall to see what the PXL4 will bring in the camera department

That 10x hybrid seems solid here. Can't wait for other oems to implement these!

I saw some stars in S10+ shots. On P30 pro the image have more unnatural brightness for a night scene. I do not know if this computing pictures are close to reality.

Why 5x worse than 10x?

I was wondering the same thing. Was 5x digital zoom not optical?

Interesting, those extra mega pixels are actually working well on the Huawei. Not surprised it was brighter in the dark. I did notice it lack sharpness in pics, where the S10 had sharpness, however the P30 had more detail. Looks like a winner. And am not even a Huawei person, MAKE the phone more Huawei and less IPhone.

Crap, had to look at all three, I like the color detailing of pixel and the S10 better.

Wow, the S10+ could not really keep up with the best camera phones. I wanted to buy the Note 10 when it comes out but now I am confused between that and the P30 Pro. P30 Pro wins with better battery life and a superb/creepy camera with 5X zoom :P Note 10 would have the S-Pen, 3.5mm jack, above avg camera, best display in a smartphone, and a card slot which can actually be used. So confused.
