Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra vs iPhone 11 Pro Max vs Huawei P40 Pro+ Camera Test Comparison

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

Welcome to the camera test three of the biggest camera phones right now the galaxy note 20 ultra versus the iphone 11 pro max versus the huawei p40 pro plus i know the iphone 12 is the real competitor but the 11 pro max is still a pretty good contender and yeah let's just get right into it now first up i'm gonna answer the main question which people have been asking me all day has samsung actually fixed the autofocus issue which we have seen with the s20 ultra is it actually fixed or not and the

Answer to that is absolutely yes the autofocus is super super fast it is as snappy as the iphone or the p40 pro plus in my personal testing actually faster than the p40 pro plus samsung has nailed this completely we actually have a brand new sensor on the back just to assist with the autofocus and it really does the trick it's super quick really impressive indeed now in terms of the pictures these phones can take great photos outdoor obviously the difference will be in terms of the color

And because of the size of the sensors we're gonna see uh things a bit more in focus on the iphone if you're taking photos up close compared to the samsung and huawei but the flip side to having a bigger sensor means you get a better depth of field overall quality looks great on both phones they all do a phenomenal job outdoor like i said just a few differences in colors sometimes we have a bit of a warmer touch on the iphone cooler on the note and kind of a middle ground on the

Huawei and sometimes all the images look kind of similar with a few differences with the dynamic range i will say this without a doubt that samsung has the best ultra wide angle lens not only it is super wide it also brings the best quality on the table as well even with the night mode it smashes both phones easily i'm going to show you guys that later so better wait for it as far as the zoom is concerned both huawei and samsung can zoom really really far samsung can do 50x huawei p40 pro plus

Can actually do 100x zoom apple on the other hand can only do 2x with 10x the maximum quality with software as far as the quality of the zoom is concerned when it comes to you know taking zoom photos handheld i think samsung does the best whereas on huawei i have to kind of keep my hands stable and even despite doing that it was a bit jittery with the result with a tripod things make a lot more sense but i'm sure

Most people won't be using a tripod but overall of course you do get better performance of zoom on both huawei and samsung compared to apple in case you're someone who's looking forward to using this feature definitely there's something that is not present on the iphone something we may see in 2022 or 2023. now as for the dynamic range this was another issue that we had on the s20 ultra and for the most part with the note 20 ultra samsung has improved everything it matches the other phones but apple

And huawei are still a little bit better at bringing the shadow highlights up in quite a few shot i actually prefer the p40 pro it even edges out the iphone sometimes uh when it comes to the dynamic range when it comes to the video performance in daytime they all shoot beautiful videos kind of the same story few differences in colors but drastic differences when it comes to a more challenging situation like this evening

Time this is where iphone picks up the game brightest video as well as the most detail in the sky as well samsung is the darkest of the bunch i tried the super night video as well and samsung again is the darkest i mean this is a very like a dark situation that is just i'm showing off for the test but you can see here that the iphone and huawei are better but overall when it comes to just videos in most situations these phones will be able to bring some amazing quality video footage coming at 4k

With samsung can even bump those numbers to 8k with some extra sharpness as for the portrait mode you can see we have some obvious differences going on mainly with the skin tones iphone is again my favorite because it's the most natural out of all these phones on the other hand samsung looks a bit too processed with the skin tones i mean i like the high contrasty look of it but definitely i prefer the iphone uh huawei p40 pro plus also has its uh processing going on overall they

All do fairly great job in background blur here is another portrait image with a bit of a challenging background and you can see huawei completely deep frying me both samsung and apple kind of keeping the balance there sometimes sometimes the effects on huawei phone can get a little too much by the way the ai mode on huawei was disabled the whole time because i felt like it was a bit too strong for my taste now when it comes to selfies the iphone does the same thing

Of course keeping all that natural look but when you switch to the portrait mode it crops in so you're not getting as wide of a result as you get on samsung or huawei so samsung takes this to a really good nice wide level and same thing with the portrait mode no difference once again same thing with the huawei p40 pro plus it's got a dual punch hold selfie camera system and honestly in comparison to the single camera system of apple and

Samsung i don't really see a huge difference in terms of the quality now a bit of a challenging situation with a bright background uh basically sky just beaming down behind me and you can see huawei looks very aggressive it's kind of the same thing we saw with the back portrait mode image that i showed you guys earlier sometimes the processing can get a little too unrealistic the iphone still keeps everything natural samsung is kind of in the middle

And i actually like the samsung selfie here it's a nice mix between the processing and you know the natural look kind of feel like it needs no editing ready to be shared on social media now when it comes to the video you can see the iphone even with the front camera is able to bring those cloud details with the bright sky again differences of the skin tones you might prefer the skin tone of samsung you might prefer the skin tone of apple it might be a personal preference i

Personally prefer a more of a natural look overall they all look good they can all shoot 4k 60fps video from front camera which is really really good now finally on to the night mode hands down samsung is the king of the ultra wide angle lens as i've said earlier it is significantly better in night mode performance compared to any other samsung phone i've tried out when it comes to the ultra mode for main lens it's just as good as the huawei p40 pro plus

And the iphone 11 pro max by the way iphone does not have a ultra wide angle lens night mode so it doesn't really do anything it literally becomes a useless lens when you are in a low light situation or in a night situation this is something that apple will definitely change with the iphone 12 uh night mode improvements are coming indeed thanks to the you know the new processor and everything now when there is enough light the night mode on iphone can produce some really good

Pleasing images huawei overall looks the most processed but it's also the one that can take up to 32 seconds long exposures so for extreme night mode huawei will most likely edge out the iphone as well as samsung but i reckon most people will just gonna use normal night mode so uh just for the test i pointed both phones towards the sky and took this image and just like that huawei has the brightest and the sharpest result now it's time for a

Quick check out of the microphone performance on all these phones hey guys so testing out the audio of the iphone 11 pro max let me know how it sounds outdoor we have a little bit of wind going on hey guys so now i'm shooting on the galaxy note 20 ultra and this is 4k 30 fps using the main lens a quick audio test let me know how it sounds again a little bit of wind hey guys so a quick little audio test

Of the huawei p40 pro plus shooting in 4k 30 frames per second using the main lens and uh the colors are looking really punchy vibrant so that's all there is guys i hope you guys have enjoyed this camera test i have to say uh after doing this test i can say that samsung has the best ultra wide angle lens on any phone right now in my testing uh whereas the iphone still has the best video on any phone like they are pretty close but i think iphone for me takes the kick and also in my opinion

Takes really good portrait images but of course it doesn't have that zoom versatility so if you're looking for that then iphone definitely doesn't have that at least for now huawei has the best extreme night mode so if you're someone who's gonna do the you know astrophotography or something like that huawei will etch out these two phones but i have to say samsung is really close as well and something can be said on the iphone considering it's a 2019 phone

It's doing a fairly good as for the actual main camera pictures they are mostly similar in quality of course you get better bokeh and better higher megapixel images out of samsung and huawei so if you're gonna really zoom in you might see a bit more detail on those phones but overall they do a great job uh mainly differences come down to the colors and dynamic range if you guys are new here be sure to subscribe and smash the like button i really appreciate that

And yeah catch you guys in the next one peace out
