It was about time we saw a Huawei device at the unrivaled top of DxOMark's leaderboards again. Sadly, it's not a new device this time around, but the 5G model of the Mate 30 Pro. The Mate 30 Pro 5G offers a few minor improvements over the regular Mate 30 Pro, especially in the zoom and night shots sub-categories.

It's safe to say that Huawei dominates DxOMark's leaderboards. It's been that way since the launch of the P20 Pro some eighteen months ago, and while a few surprise performers have challenged for the throne, parity has typically been restored with subsequent Huawei reviews.

The Mate 30 Pro was at the top of the ranking for a while but was then matched by the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition—Mi Note 10 Pro outside China. It's no surprise, then, that DxOMark's latest review, of the Mate 30 Pro 5G, sees top spot restored to Huawei.

The Mate 30 Pro 5G is identical to the regular Mate 30 Pro in terms of camera hardware. The only difference between the two should be due to the more powerful processor—the Kirin 990 5G is more capable than the regular 4G model—and, perhaps, software.

The 5G model records an overall score of 123, just two more than the regular Mate 30 Pro and Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition (121). The photo score sees a small increase over the regular Mate 30 Pro, going from 132 to 134. 

There are minor improvements across the board in the still photo category when compared to the regular Mate 30 Pro, namely in artifacts, night shots, zoom, and bokeh. Surprisingly, bokeh is worse on the 5G model.

Video also sees improvement going from a score of 100 on the regular Mate 30 Pro to a score of 102 that matches the current video champ, the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
