First impressions of the Huawei P30 Pro’s quad cameras

The Huawei P30 Pro is one of the many exciting Android phones out there right now. People have been blown away by the capabilities of the quad cameras on the back. XDA TV‘s Daniel Marchena shared his initial impressions of the cameras after having the phone for about 24 hours.

A few things stand out to Daniel after his brief testing. The Master AI camera feature can be pretty handy when it works (automatically using Portrait Mode when detecting a face), but it can also be annoying when it struggles. One of the problems Daniel notices in the photos is overexposure, especially with the wide-angle lens. The zoom capabilities are amazing and really fun to use. Daniel also appreciates that turning off the face smoothing feature really turns it off, unlike some phones that continue to smoothen. Watch the video below for the full first impressions.
