It’s well known that Google Pixel 3 takes some stellar night shots, thanks to the NightSight algorithm that Google has put into the camera software. And companies have tried to clone that feature in their own phones but none can do it like Google. It’s simple, Google’s Nightsight is unreal with low light photos. But it seems there might finally be another phone that beats it in that particular aspect – the new Huawei P30 Pro flagship.
The Huawei P30 Pro has just been announced and reviews aren’t yet online for the device but people have been playing with the camera and low-light shots are pretty much unbelievably good. So good in fact, that it beats the Google Pixel 3 Nightsight. A Twitter post by Vlad Savov of The Verge will shed more light on this aspect than my words, so here’s his post linked below.

The iPhone camera is good at many things but in low light it cannot hang. Here are shots I just took in my near pitch black room pic.twitter.com/VwukXFE4UZ

As is evident, the Pixel 3 Nightsight manages to capture good detail but it’s not even close to the amount of detail that the P30 Pro captures in full auto mode. In fact, one could say that, by some sorcery, the night is as good as day for the new Huawei flagship camera. And that’s just speaking about the low-light photography, the P30 Pro has a few other aces up its sleeve like the 10X hybrid zoom, the 50x digital zoom which the Pixel 3 flagships don’t. If this carries on, the Pixel line might have nothing to show off as its USP soon.
