We went to Japan a couple of weeks ago. Of course, like we usually do whenever we travel, we brought with us two of the best flagship smartphones in the market nowadays – the Huawei P20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S9. Huawei P20 Pro is the highest rated smartphone when it comes to camera quality based on DxO Mark. This is followed by Samsung Galaxy S9!

We snapped some photos using the 2 smartphones in various settings and checked which ones produced the best output. We are not professional photographers, but having reviewed tons of smartphones in the past, we’ve grown to understand which photo produced the right contrast, saturation, vibrance, color accuracy, etc.

If you’re looking to buy one of these 2 products, we highly encourage you to take this quiz to help identify the kind of photo output you prefer.
