DxOMark: The Honor V30 Pro's selfie cameras raise some questions

The Mate 10 Pro, P20 Pro, and Mate 20 Pro all delivered sub-par selfie cameras, and it seemed Huawei was working on that with its recent flagship phones. The Honor V30 Pro appears to be a deviation from that path, as the phone only recorded scores on par with two-year-old flagships when tested by DxOMark.

Last year, we were critical of Huawei's selfies cameras. The company looked to be on track to fix the issue, with the P30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro both delivering impressive selfie performance. It would seem that Huawei has taken a step back with the Honor V30 Pro, however.

The Honor V30 Pro's selfie shooter was tested on DxOMark, and delivered some pretty disappointing results. The phone earned an overall score of 76. That's a truly terrible score, as it's even less than the scores recorded by phones like the Google Pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus—both of which are over two years old.

Even worse is the fact that it's also nine points lower than what the Honor 20 Pro earned about this time last year. The Honor 20 Pro and V30 Pro both sport 32 MP selfie cameras with a 0.8µm pixel size, accompanied by f/2.0 lenses. The hardware is identical, so why does performance differ so much?

Sadly, DxOMark's selfie reviews don't consider fields of view, so the V30 Pro's secondary wide-angle shooter is a non-factor. As always, DxOMark reviews aren't to be considered gospel, and you'd be better served also considering reviews from other outlets.
