Huawei Mate 50 Pro named top smartphone for selfies by DxOMark
Huawei Mate 50 Pro has been hailed as the best smartphone for selfies by DxOMark. The camera benchmarking website awarded the Chinese smartphone 145 points for its front-facing camera, the same score as the Apple iPhone 14 Pro.The Mate 50 Pro features a 13-megapixel f/2.4 front-facing camera, which sits alongside a dedicated depth camera in a wide notch. The camera has an equivalent focal length of 18mm, and can record 4K footage at up to 60fps, or 1,080p slow motion at 240 frames per second.
In its analysis, DxOMark praised the Mate 50 Pro’s front camera for its accurate exposure, large dynamic range, and correct representation of skin tones. The camera also performed well in group shots, thanks to its sharp depiction of people. However, the small sensor and effective noise reduction meant that detail was lost in low light, and the video had some issues with saturation, contrast, and ghosting artifacts.
Despite its strong performance in the camera department, Huawei has almost disappeared from the international smartphone market due to tough US sanctions. The company continues to produce some of the best smartphone cameras in the world, however, with the Mate 50 Pro’s rear camera also taking the top spot in DxOMark’s rankings.
