Huawei Mate 30 Pro: Follow Us On Our Special Date II

After our spontaneous date at Rockestra, I was dying to take more photos and experiment with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. So guess what I did on the following weekend? Yes, I made my date go to #GBTB with me. Yes, I made him take photos of me (I promise I am not as demanding as I make myself sound…)

A Scenery Photographer’s Perfect Companion

Like many Android phones, the Mate 30 Pro’s camera gives off a relatively processed look compared to its rival Apple, while taking photos of people. This look has proven to be rather successful, but it is simply not my cup of tea. Sadly, I like my photos a little more unprocessed, so that I can do the editing myself. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro simply makes the photos look a little too perfect.

On the other hand, I love the photos that the Mate 30 Pro take of scenery and objects. This is the reason I fell in love with this phone and its cameras.

There is just something about the camera that makes the colors in this photo pop with nuance, and compliment each element.

Even the most minute details can be captured as you can see in the photo above. The camera is super easy to use. There’s even a PRO mode that allows you to play with the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed! If you are an amateur photographer like me, then this phone will allow you to get used to playing with the different techniques and options that you’ll get in a DSLR!

Even though it wasn’t that long ago when I first laid hands on the new CabinZero Classic Pro, the good folks at CabinZero has decided to send me one of their newest CabinZero companion bags. The bag was spacious and could fit all my necessities as I bounced around, looking at the flora and fauna of the place. Catch me again as I bring this bag on a trip this December!

Below are more photos I took during my short trip to Gardens By The Bay.

My Verdict 

Overall, using the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has been a rather pleasant experience! While I don’t really like how the phone processed photos too much when taking portraits of people, I found that the different modes of the camera allowed me to explore the different possibilities of taking photos with ease which made it an invaluable companion. 

The photos turned out looking #bomb, and I haven’t been happier to record a date. 

Thank you Huawei for sending this Mate 30 Pro over and allowing me to document this amazing night with such quality photos.
