Chinese phone maker – Huawei – has apparently found the secret to achieving the best results on camera review site – DxOMark. The brand did indeed just manage to get their Honor V30 Pro in the top three; more specifically in second place, just after the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G and before the Huawei Mate 30 Pro (non 5G).
The Honor V30 Pro achieved a final score of 122 points, divided into a whopping 133 for photos and a rather low 100 in videos. Let’s find out how the handset managed to get such a score!

So, as far as photos were concerned, the Honor V30 Pro was able to snap pictures with high detail and low noise. It had an accurate exposure with wide dynamic range and a good zoom performance up to medium range. The smartphone did well also in photos with bokeh effect and photos shot at night; with pleasant texture & noise rendering.
Where the handset didn’t do too well was in autofocus, with frequent failures. It added some blue color casts in shadow areas and geometric distortion in ultra-wide shots. Meanwhile autofocus and stabilization issues occasionally impacted sharpness.

Moving onto the video part of the review. Honor’s V30 Pro showed a quite accurate target exposure; with nice color rendering both outdoors and indoors. Additionally, it brought a good texture quality while keeping noise low. Finally, video stabilization was effective and displayed no issues.
But it’s not all sunshine and roses, as the video score itself shows. The smartphone did exhibit strong denoising artifacts in low light; with temporal noise artifacts in most conditions. According to DxOMark the lens also has some noticeable tilt occasionally and they found slight autofocus instabilities in most conditions.
