Smartphone manufacturers are constantly improving their cameras, and at the moment they are the most important to improve the quality of shooting in low light. In 2018 a breakthrough in this area did Google and Huawei — along with advanced optics, they used a neural network. Smartphones Google Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro amaze their abilities of shooting at night, but the edition Digital Trends decided to find out which of them is the best.
Night mode from Huawei and is called Night Mode. It is available on many smartphones and Huawei Honor, but the best result, of course, is the flagship Mate 20 Pro. Mode based on image stabilization based on artificial intelligence. To lighten dark photo, the camera takes a bunch of pictures at slow shutter speeds and stitches the best shots. To the picture quality, the smartphone must be kept motionless for about six seconds.
Night mode Google is called Night Sight. It works on all models of the Google Pixel, but the best result gives the third generation devices. He also takes a bunch of pictures on a long exposure, but with the lightening sections relies on a lot provided to a neural network of photos. As a rule, the system chooses dull photo with different objects, to understand what areas you need to increase the brightness.
The comparison of the photos
Next, the first photos were taken on Google Pixel 3, and the second on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The photos below show the images look like the Google Pixel 3 in normal and night mode. It is seen that the maximum camera lightens the frame and saves as many details as possible.
The following photos show the results of shooting Huawei Mate 20 in normal and night mode. It is seen that the final image is much darker than the Google Pixel 3, however, in the following tests, the camera shows more distinct results.
For example when shooting at Washington Park square in new York night mode Huawei gave a more realistic color of the trees. Google Pixel 3, in turn, made the colors of the lantern-lit tree acid. According to Digital Trends, the Huawei photo turned out much better.
The arch of Washington square, by contrast, was more realistic on photos Google Pixel 3. The smartphone from Huawei saturated white stone yellow, and this is a clear distortion of colors.
The following pictures showed the best result night mode Huawei. If you look closely, in the right picture a man is seen much better with high enough brightness and detail.
Night mode of both devices is not very effective when shooting moving objects. We can say that when removing active dogs to get a clear picture almost impossible. However Google Pixel 3 dealt with the shot better: the head of the dog was less blurred, and the background was brighter than pictured Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Google Pixel 3 has a significant advantage — night mode even works on front camera. The result is the selfie was more vivid and detailed — just look at the strands of hair that photo on Google Pixel 3 maximum is clearly visible.
Another plus night shooting on the Google Pixel 3 — it’s a great job in daylight. In some cases the photos are really beautiful, but the night mode Huawei day it is better not to include photos much brighter.
Thus, according to Digital Trends, this fight clearly won the third generation of Google Pixel. To underestimate the capabilities of Huawei Mate 20 Pro too — after all, he still has one of the best cameras in the mobile market.
