Although its mobile photography performance is — according to multiple tests — very good overall, the Samsung Galaxy S10 fails in low-light conditions. This failure is made obvious by its comparison with the Huawei P30 Pro and Google Pixel 3, both capable of providing much better results when shooting at night.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was recently crowned as the handset that features the best overall smartphone camera performance by DxOMark, but it seems that this flagship lags behind in an area that is essential to some mobile photography fans — the ability to shoot good photos in low-light conditions.

Android Authority has just published a mobile photography roundup that brings together three of the best flagships money can buy right now: the Huawei P30 Pro, the Google Pixel 3, and Samsung's Galaxy S10. In some tests such as zooming in capabilities, the winner is a no-brainer, since the P30 Pro is the only one to feature a 5x optical zoom camera of the trio.

The aforementioned roundup involved two low-light tests. In both, the Huawei P30 Pro grabbed the win and the Samsung Galaxy S10 failed. For the Google Pixel 3, the results were pretty good, especially when using the Night Mode in very low lighting conditions.

Moving on, Android Authority also tested the bokeh photography performance of the three flagships, giving the Huawei P30 Pro a chance to grab another win. However, sometimes the winner of a mobile photography contest depends on who is looking at the images, so feel free to take a look at the — rather large — uncompressed images that were produced during the test (click here).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
