Huawei Mate 20 Pro Camera Review – all modes photos & videos

Welcome to my Huawei Mate 20 Pro Camera Review. In this review I have tested all the photo and video modes, explained the camera app interface and UI, sort of a mini tutorial, plus you get to see what the max resolutions are per mode.

So what lenses does the Mate 20 Pro have? 4 in total. 3 rear lenses, a 40mp main sensor, a 20mp ultra wide and a 8mp telephoto lens. The front camera is 24mp. The camera system is co-engineered with Leica.

Below are some photos from the camera.

A very windy day, but I still managed a close up of a bee feeding.

With the sun behind the church entrance, the ultra wide lens created a lovely effect.

My camera review includes shots of the moon, high action, pitch black, low light, all video modes, Video AI, stabilisation tests, zoom tests and much much more, plus my honest verdict on the whole phone from just a camera point of view, and then compared to the iPhone Xs Max and Note 9.

Of course, the Mate 20 Pro has many other unique or great features, like fast wireless charge, reverse wireless charging and did you know the bottom speaker is integrated into the USB C port!

  1. Great info. Distracting highway noise and skylight reflections though.

    Question : 10mp is default binned size but that is 4:3, right? I think I see much smaller images for 16:9, etc. Pity. Other reviewers suggested using 40mp was fine too.


  2. Hey Gavin,
    Just got my Mate 20 Pro and playing around with it. Interesting, in the Video recording screen I dont have the AR options available to me though (the little magic wand to the bottom left)


    1. A couple of reasons for that. Video resolution settings need to be 1080p, 30fps. But more likely based on feedback from a few others, is the firmware is waiting for an update. I think you have a build number less than 113, maybe 108 or 106. It will say in settings, about, build number etc . The 108 is the build number. I have 113, but there is a new firmware landing any day now. This will the extra features .


  3. ah I have build 108

    Hmm next question, what about the 3S Scanning in of Panda bears (or other toys) and the single colour video tracking thing? New firmware as well?


      1. Cheers Gavin.

        Mildly annoying having to wait for some key features 😉

        BTW does the Old Post Office in Princetown still do an awesome breakfast ?


      2. Yes it is, the firmware was meant to land today but maybe it needed some tweaking.

        Old Police station sure does good breakfasts. Also the Fox Tor Cafe and Jane’s (previously Lords Cafe) Lots of choice 😁


  4. Have you heard of any build higher than .122 ?. Because mine is .126 .
    I’m here in the states and ordered mine from H.Kong .. It did an update within an hour of unboxing it.. It’s a unlocked dual sim device .. Maybe an Asian version ?. Just thought I would ask .. Thanks ..
