  1. The quality of the photo was “fairly nice” for its price but i think it lacks more on the deep blacks and hue.

  2. I’m honestly quite amazed by the details of the photos and how natural the colors were yet not bland but vibrant. I just loved how it captured the sky of the Nymphenburg Castle. I think Huawei just nailed it. 🙂
