Honor, the Huawei subsidiary, had recently unveiled its flagship Honor 30 series. Now, the Chinese company’s high end Honor 30 Pro+ has received the second-highest DxOMark rating by scoring 125 points, which is just slightly below the Huawei P40 Pro.
For those unaware, DxOMark is a renowned benchmarking and rating platform that generally reviews professional-grade or digital camera, and recently, smartphones as well. They use various tests in different conditions and environments to get the clearest possible results and have become a standard for ratings in the smartphone industry in recent years.
Arriving at the score, the Honor 30 Pro+ scored a total of 125 points, which includes 136 points for photography and 104 points for videography. Starting with the former, the premium flagship received an impressive score. The device’s zoom capabilities were specifically praised, while the autofocus, exposure, and color also achieved high ratings. The Honor 30 Pro+ features a 50 megapixel primary sensor alongside a 16 megapixel ultra wide lens and 8 megapixel telephoto lens.
Arriving at the video scores, aspects like exposure, colors, and autofocus again received impressive ratings while the overall stabilization was one of the key highlights in this area. Videos were found to have detailed textures with natural colors. Notably, the smartphone is also capable of 4K (2160p) recording at 60fps, which is the current standard in flagship smartphones.
Overall, the Honor 30 Pro+ featured good dynamic range, textures, fast autofocus, and good stabilization. However, it did suffer from low saturations during low light scenarios and a loss of sharpness in a few pictures that were zoomed in. White balance was also an issue when capturing videoes, but the handset is still one of the best smartphones DxOMark has ever rated.
