Huawei P Smart 2020 test: with Google, but not brilliantly

No overdoing in photo modules for this P Smart 2020 which is satisfied with a single usable module, a 13-megapixel wide-angle associated with a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Up front, an 8-megapixel module is in charge.

Wide-angle module (f / 1.8)

It's almost surprising, but Huawei opted for a 13-megapixel sensor, which has grown accustomed to seeing it use – and do well – 48-megapixel sensors. The results obtained with this model are quite poor in all respects, except for the daytime color management which proves to be convincing. There is little detail seen in the image, either in the center or in the corners, which is a far cry from the performance of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S.

At night, the result is quite bad since it is simply impossible to see fine details anywhere in the image. In low light, the result is nothing but mushy shapelessness and your nighttime photographs will benefit from good sources of light.

Front sensor, portrait and video mode

The P Smart 2020 offers an 8-megapixel sensor on the front that delivers quite decent shots. Portrait mode, front and back, offers a decent cut, but the shot lacks sharpness. Finally, the video (Full HD at 30 fps) is not the strong point of this terminal which lacks stabilization.
