The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G’s 100x zoom is frustrating excess

Nobody can accuse the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G of not taking photography seriously. Flagship of the new S20 family, its four main cameras includes a whopping 100x "Space Zoom" courtesy of a clever folded telephoto lens. It's one of the first things I played with when SlashGear's Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G review unit landed, but as I quickly discovered, just because you can zoom, doesn't mean you should.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro just dethroned Huawei on DxOMark

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro just dethroned Huawei on DxOMark

One of the tragedies of Huawei's absence in many markets, especially after losing access to Google Play Store, is the absence of one of the best smartphone cameras in the market, at least by DxOMark's standards. Even Apple and Samsung and especially Google have been outshone by the latest Huawei flagships that you can't get. There might be less regret and envy now that Xiaomi has taken the top spot on that list but, of course, you still can't get the new Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro directly in some markets.

Nikon D6 DSLR puts the focus on autofocus

While the smartphone market is seemingly obsessed with megapixel counts, the camera industry has moved on to solve the next big problem in digital photography. In contrast to mobile OEMs, camera makers seem to be content with incremental increases in sensor sizes while putting their efforts heavily on improving other parts of the formula, specifically the autofocus system. That seems to be the vibe that Nikon is giving with the new D6 which it describes as having its most powerful AF system to date.

Huawei Mate 20 X DxOMark review comes a little too late

Huawei Mate 20 X DxOMark review comes a little too late

The Mate 20 X has always been an odd duck. Launched together with the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in late 2018, the phone traded some features in exchange for a larger screen and a gaming bent, not to mention an optional stylus. Despite some tradeoffs, the Mate 20 X shared the same triple camera setup as the Mate 20 Pro. It turns out, it's just as capable as Huawei's late 2018 flagship. Unfortunately, that may no longer matter as the company puts its focus on the upcoming Huawei P40 and fighting for its survival in the smartphone market.
