Sometimes things don’t go exactly to plan. Like when Richard Yu went off-script at CES to rant about the U.S. carrier issues Huawei is facing or when the company arranged a Parisian bicycle tour to show off what the Huawei P20 Pro camera could do and it was cold and raining. While we all learned just how water-resistant the P20 Pro is that day, the photos we got weren’t quite as sunny and picturesque as we all might have liked.
But the P20 Pro camera still impressed. From its impressive 5x hybrid zoom to its incredible ability to pluck out light and detail from near total darkness, the days we spent in Paris with the device were among the most exciting we’ve had as far as smartphone photography goes. The night mode is a highlight feature, allowing you to take a four-second handheld long exposure, and especially at night, it makes a huge difference to your overall photos.
The desire to see what the Huawei P20 Pro camera could do in different environments was exciting, to say the least, and in almost all instances it performed above and beyond.

So join us on a bit of a photo tour of Paris and see what kinds of images we managed to grab in dull lighting, in the rain, in the dark and on the back of a bike. We won’t go into an analysis of the results, as we’ll do that in the full review coming next week. But we knew you’d want to see more photos from this triple camera monster, and you know what you like in a photo much better than us. So sit back, get swiping, and enjoy! We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments, so be sure to let us know your thoughts on the gallery once you’re done.
Note: In the images that follow, shots were either taken at 1x, 3x or 5x. All photos were shot at 10MP (the Huawei P20 Pro camera’s default setting) and taken in either Auto Mode or Night Mode. Deviations in similar shots are likely down to when the AI assistance kicked in or not.
