According to DXOMARK experts The Mate 60 Pro+ excels at still imagesand delivers exceptional results in different scenarios and lighting conditions. It strikes an excellent balance between detail preservation and noise reduction, ensuring accurate target exposure, wide dynamic range and pleasing color reproduction.
he’s also a smartphone of choice for portraits, thanks to its variable aperture from f/1.4 to f/4. The variable aperture optimizes the depth of field, allowing greater focus in group photos. Bokeh mode excels at depth estimation, which is often a nightmare for many smartphones.
The ultra-wide-angle camera and the telephoto lens are also not neglected, as they make a significant contribution to the overall performance of the device. The ultra wide-angle camera in particular has received the highest score so far, thanks to high levels of detail, low noise and a reliable autofocus system.
With a total of 160 points, the Mate 60 Pro+ easily secured first place in the photo category. DXOMARK even highlights that the Mate 60 Pro+ demonstrates responsiveness and precision when capturing moving scenes, allowing you to immortalize the crucial moment. The Mate 60 Pro+ impressively handles motion blur and ghost images in moving scenes.
Without surprise, The Mate 60 Pro+’s low-light capabilities are among the best, Offers wide dynamic range, controlled image noise and high level of detail. Finally, when it comes to video, the Mate 60 Pro+ is an excellent option, especially when it comes to stabilization.
However, the Huawei Mate 60 Pro+ is not perfect.
Despite its impressive capabilities, DXOMARK still found certain shortcomings. For example, while the Mate 60 Pro+ offers excellent video stabilization, It couldn’t quite match the video performance of top competitors like the iPhone 15 Pro Max and Google Pixel 8 Pro.
Additionally, experts point out that the ultra-wide-angle camera may have anamorphism that causes subjects at the edge of the frame to appear stretched. At telephoto, zooming in too far will cause the images to become “softer” and lose their sharpness and clarity.
Finally, DXOMARK notes that while video autofocus is generally fast and smooth, it can exhibit slight inaccuracies indoors, leaving room for improvement. However, Huawei could still fix some of these problems with future updates.
In any case, the high score of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro will be hard to beat. A few smartphones will try it out from the beginning of next year : the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, the OPPO Find X7 Pro, the Vivo X100 Pro+ and the Honor Magic 6 Pro. Apparently, the next Huawei P70 Pro is probably waiting around the corner.
