First of is a beautiful outdoor shot focusing on a tall building in the middle. The Mate 10 Pro looks to have the most vibrant color representation within the three while the 5T and Note 8 seem to not differ that much with just a bit lighter blues on the Note 8. Either way, clarity seem to be at par within the three as seen on a close up of the background.


The second shot features a hallway with the OnePlus being the most color accurate within the three while the Huawei having the overall darkest result compared to the bright yet pinkish approach of the Samsung. With all having almost the same quality in detail sharpness.


Turning on the HDR mode has the most noticeable difference on the Mate 10 Pro and little to no difference for the 5T and the Note 8. Either way, HDR mode works great on all three without losing detail clarity or sharpness.


Next is the depth-effect mode which has small visible smudges on the OnePlus but still being able to produce a decent bokeh result. The Huawei on the other hand separates subject from background well same goes with the Samsung and having the most blurred out background result.


Heading over to night-time shots, the 5T and the Mate 10 Pro seem to have a paired result although the Huawei being a bit brighter than the OnePlus. The Note 8 on the other hand have a noticeable difference specially in color, having a brighter orange than the two most visible through the street lighting.


The Huawei on the other hand can fix some blown out lighting sources or the overall quality in general with its night mode showing some details which were not present before.


This next night-time shot show how the 5T and Note 8 are similar in result but with the Mate 10 Pro again having a brighter and more vibrant result on all three handsets.


The last night-time shot surprisingly has the brightest result on the OnePlus yet this time the darker result on the Huawei while also a bit brighter on the Samsung resulting in an inconsistent night time shot results.


Moving on to the front camera shots, the 5T has the most color and detail accurate within the three compared to the Mate 10 pro which leaned on to a pinkish white tone approach same as to the Note 8 although retaining some of the original skin tone of the Subject. What do you guys think?


Somehow the OnePlus manage to lose detail and color accuracy on low-lit shots which wasn’t the case for its first front camera result. The Huawei on the other hand was able to maintain clarity in low lit scenarios without overcompensating while the Note 8 having a pretty decent result, although not as clear as the Mate 10 Pro


This time night-time shot is much clearer on the OnePlus although the Huawei somehow managed to lose some facial details which was presented clearly on low-lit scenarios. The Samsung, like the rest of its front camera shots have a slightly pinkish approach to color although not sacrificing some facial details nor overcompensating.

All handsets are capable of recording up to 4k resolution on 30 fps although detail clarity and stabilization greatly varies on all when it comes to outdoor and night time shots. See for yourselves.
