In this topic I will summarize some of the individual performance of the mobile phone camera in my personal purely subjective experience so the following content only represents personal views. The criterion for judgment is basically derived from personal contact and experience in work and life. It does not consider parameter test comparisons at all, but makes judgments based entirely on personal subjective experience and aesthetic preferences, hoping to give some people a reference for purchasing a smartphone. The models in the article will also be limited to smartphones in the first half of 2020, and most of them has a high camera performance.

In 2020, when the outsole high-resolution and multi-camera quality are further improved, the models of the major brands in the first half of the year can be said to have their own magical powers. No model can be perfect in many performances in my opinion. For users with different pixel, color or focal length preferences, different models have their own unique appeal, and no model can surpass all competing products in all directions without dead ends.

Best Comprehensive Performance: OPPO Find X2 Pro

If you don't care about the price, the system, and just want the best "snap shot" performance, then OPPO Find X2 Pro can be said to be the best choice.

From the hardware point of view, OPPO Find X2 Pro's main camera and ultra-wide-angle camera are both main camera-level hardware, and the performance of the telephoto camera is completely at the top level of this year's smartphones, and there is no need to worry about quality. And the dual main camera design obviously brings more possibilities for the use of this smartphone, and it can also obtain relatively excellent picture quality performance at the same time in two different perspectives of the main camera and ultra-wide angle.

In terms of software, this model has excellent colors and an excellent straight-out look. What's more commendable is that it has extremely stable straight-out performance under different light conditions, such as its straight-out performance in dusk scenes. The look and feel did not drop significantly, but the direct look and feel of the Huawei P40 Pro would drop sharply under the same scene.

In addition to the stability of the look and feel, OPPO Find X2 Pro is also very good in experience. Not only is it excellent focusing, it also has a fast and accurate ultra-wide-angle close-up cropping switch created to avoid the effects of the main camera close-up. These functional advantages can significantly improve the user experience. And in these software details that are closely related to experience, the Find X2 Pto intelligence and algorithm synthesis success rate have very significant advantages over competing products.

But if you care about multi-shot color consistency and ultra-wide-angle corner image quality, there may be better choices on the market.

The strongest ultra-wide-angle camera: Huawei P40 Pro

The largest size IMX608 sensor with high-quality lens, this is the top ultra-wide-angle camera on Huawei P40 Pro.
In terms of my personal criteria, the breadth of the angle of view is not the top priority. After all, different focal lengths are like screwdrivers of different specifications, each of which has meaning, regardless of its advantages and disadvantages, and irreplaceable. With the relatively narrow 18mm focal length as the starting point, Huawei P40 Pro has achieved the absolute top level of ultra-wide-angle camera quality despite the loss of a certain angle of view.

Under the premise of outputting 10 million pixel pictures by default, the huge Sony IMX608 sensor brings extremely solid picture quality. In terms of picture quality, it can be said to be the strongest among the ultra-wide-angle cameras on the market. What's more commendable is that its ultra-wide-angle corner image quality is extremely good, and the control of purple fringing and aberration is at the apex of current smartphones. It can even be said that there is absolutely no comparison with the image quality performance on the market so P40 Pro is a superior products.

Of course, if you care about the ultra-wide angle of view, an ultra-wide-angle camera with an equivalent focal length of 15mm or even 14/13mm may be more suitable. However, to measure the performance of ultra-wide-angle cameras by the most basic and important criterion of image quality, Huawei P40 Pro is clearly in an invincible position in the smartphone market.

The strongest main camera details: OnePlus 8 Pro

Well, I know that users of OnePlus 8 Pro want to complain about many things, such as color, white balance, etc., but in terms of main camera details, this is indeed the best model in the first half of this year.

Although the Sony IMX689 sensor is used in the same way as OPPO Find X2 Pro, it is different from OPPO’s fleshy look and feel. OnePlus 8 Pro has outstanding performance in screen details even the so-called "100 million bottoms" does not exceed this model with a smaller number of pixels and the size of the photosensitive element in terms of image details.

Of course, this may be because the noise reduction algorithm provided by OnePlus is relatively less smeared. However, although the screen details of the phone are extremely good, the immature algorithm also makes it the flagship camera in the first half of 2020.

Best straight out color: vivo X50 Pro+

Vivo X50 Pro+ has very good straight-out colors. It is very expressive for colors such as the sky and green plants, and it can bring high-saturation and brilliant-looking pictures most of the time. And the phone no longer blindly pursues the dynamic range itself, but can allow a certain degree of "dead black" in the dark part, thereby further highlighting the rich and bright colors through the relatively high picture contrast.

Especially in scenes with high light ratio or night scene artificial light sources, the beautiful colors of vivo X50 Pro+ will be more eye-catching, and even under large backlight HDR, its colors will not appear too dim, but can be retained at the same time Appropriate vividness and contrast. In a light scene, the consistency of color and the accuracy of white balance also make it possible to further enhance the color perception under the white balance that is relatively close to the perception of human eyes.

More importantly, perhaps thanks to the built-in color temperature sensor, the vivo X50 Pro+ has the best multi-camera color consistency. The color tendency of the four rear cameras is very consistent, and it is not easy to have too obvious color differences throughout the hybrid zoom.

The strongest telephoto camera: Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

The telephoto camera of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra was able to find a place even the high competition

The IMX586 sensor, F3.5 aperture lens and telephoto camera that supports optical image stabilization can be said to be at the top of the current smartphone in terms of sensor size and (equivalent) aperture size. Although its focal length is not considered the best in the factory, the powerful picture quality performance brought by a main camera-level sensor makes it the most powerful telephoto camera currently.

Among other things, the extremely solid picture quality with high pixels allows the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra to have the best of both worlds in terms of picture quality and focal length. Even though it seems that there is a disadvantage that the focal length is not long enough, the better picture quality also leaves more room for digital zoom cropping and magnification, and also allows the machine to obtain a good picture solidity under 10x digital zoom. .

Although the degree of attention may not be as high as the main camera, the high-resolution outsole may become the future of smartphone telephoto cameras. After all, if you want to bring higher practicability to high-power digital zoom, then the hardware basis of the telephoto camera itself Obviously it needs to be in the first place.

Best 2x portrait camera: Mi 10 Pro

Not only the Mi 10 Pro, but even the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition, many people think that the portrait camera is better than the main camera experience, such as me.

Thanks to the Samsung S5K2L7 sensor with parameters close to the Sony IMX363, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro can be said to be a dual-camera model. The 2X portrait camera of this machine has excellent picture solidity, and has the top performance among products with similar specifications. If you care about the equivalent 50mm focal length, then this 2X portrait camera may be the best choice on the market.

And this 2X portrait camera has a good shortest focusing distance, which can not only replace the main camera with serious close-up shots to a certain extent, but also narrow the viewing angle and stronger physical blur caused by the longer focal length. It can significantly bring advantages in composition, and it can also better prevent the cluttered background from affecting the main body of the picture.

Unfortunately, although Xiaomi's current algorithm level has improved significantly, it is obviously still a long way from the first-class level. If Xiaomi can make greater improvements in the appearance and color of the picture in the future, then this 2X portrait camera may have better performance .

OPPO Reno4 Pro

Even the smart phone with the strongest video quality at present, in my opinion, the picture quality is also very poor, so under the premise of this "only picture and one happy", the direct look and shooting experience of the smart phone's video is more important Up.

As early as on OPPO Reno2, OPPO has provided a very good video shooting experience, and these advantages have been further brought into play on OPPO Reno4 Pro. Better super anti-shake, better super night scene video, and more natural real-time portrait blur make this model closer to the "pursuit of making good videos at hand."

And while experiencing great progress, OPPO Reno4 Pro's straight-out colors are as good as ever, and both scenery and portraits have a very good look and feel. Even when using OPPO Reno2, my opinion that "post filters may not be as straightforward" is still applicable to this new machine.

And the front camera of this model also has good color and super video anti-shake function, which also allows OPPO Reno4 Pro to better meet the needs of light vlog.


Of course, these conclusions drawn purely based on my personal subjective will obviously cannot be used as a reference for everyone, but I still hope that my evaluation of smartphone camera performance in the first half of 2020 will bring enough to some people. Reference value.

For the current smart phones, the focal length and the hardware level of the main camera are actually sufficient. Obviously, it is not these problems that restrict the performance of smart phones. Smartphone manufacturers need to consider how to equip the main camera with a lens with better optical quality, how to balance the ultra-wide angle of view and image quality, and whether to design and manufacture models with three or even four main cameras. In order to get better picture quality performance at all focal lengths.

And the rapid replacement of camera hardware every year has made the straight-out algorithm of most smartphones relatively immature for a long time, and this model will often face upgrading when it is relatively mature. This actual situation also puts forward higher requirements on the algorithm development capabilities of mobile phone manufacturers. After all, immature algorithms will also drag down the performance of the hardware. If the smart phones of the future want a better camera experience, the overall development of algorithms and hardware is indispensable, and there is also a higher demand for the aesthetic level of straightforward perception.
