I have just returned from a holiday in Europe where I travelled with my "real" camera and my Huawei Mate 20 Pro. I was amazed by the photos the Huawei consistently turned out. In short, it looks at what photo you are trying to take and it responds accordingly. If there is a person in the photo, it defaults to "portrait mode" where it automatically blurs the background. If it detects a wide dynamic range, it changes to auto HDR. If it sees food, it changes to macro mode. Of course, the photos don't hold up if you zoom to 100% and pixel peep. But compare these photos, straight from the camera: This photo was taken with a Leica M10 with a 35mm f/1.4 lens. And this was shot with the Huawei. The camera phone detected that there was a wide dynamic range. When I hit the shutter button, I got the message - "sharpening the photo, hold your camera steady". In other words, it takes a few photos and then combines them to get the HDR. I am pretty sure I could coax more details from the Leica RAW file with Lightroom, but with any "real" camera you are still limited by shutter speed. The cameras don't automatically shoot a few frames and then combine them. I would be pretty excited if SOMEONE brought out a camera that had the smarts to do this!
