Probably, you know the Huawei P30 Pro scored 112 points in DxOMark and dominates the list. But this is the overall result, while its video score is 97 points. Compared to the previous generation of P20 Pro, it got fewer points.

Recently, Bruce Lee, the Vice President of Handset Business at Huawei Consumer Business Group, spoke about the issue of P30 Pro video recording scores. He said that DxO’s scoring project for video is relatively fixed. DxO believes that 4K mode will greatly improve the resolution, but Huawei does not regard 4K as the default mode, because this is not the best setting for users. It sets 1080P 30fps as the default setting because it is more widely used. Huawei actively gives up the default 4K and does not target DxO scores.
In its turn, DxOMark’s video recording review of the Huawei P30 Pro is the following:
‘At 97 points, the Huawei P30 Pro achieves a good score for Video, making the device a great all-around mobile imaging option. The overall video score is derived from a number of sub-scores in the same way as the Photo score: Exposure (85), Color (86), Autofocus (98), Texture (58), Noise (77), Artifacts (85), and Stabilization (94).
The P30 Pro camera produces generally good target exposure when shooting video. As with its stills mode, the camera is capable of exposing video scenes well down to impressively low light levels. On the downside, our testers observed local tone mapping instabilities in most videos, with the brightness of some image areas changing for no obvious reason.’
