shah stlz: I was never that much interested in DxO rankings. But looking at the images in the review it's just hilarious. The Huawai looks slightly better than the competition in some images and a lot worse in others (portraits). So stating they "skipped one or two generations" feels like cheap advertisement.

No chance I will take DxO seriously anytime soon.

I have a Huawei Mate 9 PD. After the last update it has a different portrait mode that combines 2 functions: background (and foreground) blur and beauty mode. Beauty mode "smoothes" the face. Both settings are adjustable, I put beauty mode at 0 and you will get back all the lines in your face. Since they tested the P20 at the default settings, I think that the beauty slider was at 4.

Wild Light: My phones got more cameras that yours.

It's like when Gilette brought out the 3 bladed razor and then Wilkinson bought out 4.

Who gives a toss?

I consider every commercial to be untrue. Always check by yourself to see if you can live with the results.

Kharan: Oh, let me make some popcorn first! This comment section is gonna be great!
These clips are a slap in the face of every photo enthusiast and professional on Earth. I hope this backfires in a grand fashion for Huawei, once the reviews come in - I owned a P8, and it was absolute junk. I don't see that changing for this new model.

I don't know the P8, but my P9 Pro is a fantastic phone with a pretty decent camera. I f they can further improve it, it will be an interesting choice.

US government is concerned because Huawei has ties with the Chinese goverment. Apparently they didn't find any evidence of Huawei spying, otherwise they would let you know big time....

The message I read: they're not spying, but don't buy them 'cause it's Chinese

GabrielZ: What’s the advantage of having variable aperture on such a tiny sensored camera? Unless it uses a much larger sensor than previous incarnations.

Excellent question

Dericali: I really love that software rendered line along the edge of the subject's face in portrait mode. Really natural looking software artefact.

LITERALLY STOP PRETENDING THAT PHONES TAKE COMPARABLE IMAGES TO CAMERAS. THEY DON'T

There will always be a difference in quality, but the newer models are now acceptable, and improving. In 2025 the image quality may have improved to a point that many people don't care anymore about the extra quality of a larger camera.

I use Google Drive the other way around, when I take pictures with the smartphone, it makes a backup to Google Drive, but I use the desktop app to sync the contents of Google Drive to my PC. It's very easy to import my images in Capture One that way. Would it still be possible to sync Google Drive to the pc???

I consider ANY advertisement or commercial to be fake, companies will say and promise anything to get that money out of your wallet.

Nixyz: Why do phone manufacturers make photography as a main feature of their devices but does not include dedicated shutter buttons on the lower right side of the bodies? (Sony is an exception here)

I have a Lumigon smartphone that has a hardware shutter button. Problem is: the phone is lightweight and thin, pressing a hardware shutter button causes motion blur. Using the virtual on screen button gives sharper images.

On article Corel PaintShop Pro X9 arrives with improved workflow (48 comments in total)

I hate Corel as a company. 2 years ago I bought Paintshop but it had a software bug. I tried to report it to Corel, but they wanted me to pay for support. Well I don't need support, I'm helping you reporting a bug. We offer paid traings for our product...I don't need training, I know how to use it, but your software isn't working properly. We'll refund the money to you....waited 2 years and after a few reminders...nothing. I used to love Picture Publisher, than Corel bought it and it was gone.

JordanAT: Battery life? Quick charge capable?

I'm sold on the Stainless case, the high end processor, wireless charging, and the 128GB of built in memory - I'll skip the SD card. I'm even good with the medium sized, low (aka reasonable) resolution screen -especially if it translates into multi-day performance. The night vision thing may be a gimmick (maybe you could combine it with that pentaprism/periscope case for the ultimate creeper camera) but it could be useful in the oddball circumstance.

It supports Pump Express quick charging.

It looks that there is something wrong with the Olympus E-P5 scene.

There is a lot less detail than in the E-PL5 and OM-D5 scenes.
It might be a good idea to check if all settings were correct.
