We've been testing Huawei's triple-lens Mate 20 camera for a few days now and here's our full review - with a look at photo and video quality, the best features and beyond. The Mate 20 serves up a triple-lens shooter with ultra-wide angle smarts and a telephoto lens, just like the Mate 20 Pro. Those camera specs aren't quite as impressive here - but the 12MP primary RGB lens, 16MP ultra-wide lens and 8MP telephoto snapper all combine to give you just the kind of shot you want, while Huawei's Master AI mode can really boost your photos and make them look great. You can shoot up to 4K resolution video on the Mate 20 as well, with solid image stabilisation. As for bonus features, you get the Portrait Mode, excellent Night Mode and plenty more smarts on top. We've tested the Huawei Mate 20's camera tech over several days and here's our full review. Let us know what you think in the comments below, and stay tuned for our in-depth thoughts on the rest of the Mate 20!

Unboxing and full tour of the Razer Phone 2's hardware, software and specs. We setup and run through some of the best features found on the second Razer smartphone, including a look at the 120Hz screen, performance, Nova Prime launcher and dual-lens camera tech. The Razer Phone 2 sports a few upgrades over last year's original handset, including full waterproofing, a new RGB Razer Chroma logo, dual Dolby Atmos speakers and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset. The specs are strong, but can the Razer Phone 2 impress compared with the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and other gaming phones such as the Asus ROG? Is it really better for PubG Mobile? One of our biggest issues with the original handset was some of the compromises, including sub-standard cameras. The Razer Phone 2 aims to make amends with a new 12MP dual-lens snapper, including OIS and a telephoto lens. In this unboxing we take a look at the camera app and also dive into that Nova Prime setup, with a look at the Razer Cortex app for performance gaming. Stay tuned for an in-depth review of the new Razer Phone.

In-depth review of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro's camera tech after a full week of testing the photo and video quality, alongside rivals like the OnePlus 6T. The Mi 8 Pro sports a dual-lens camera on the back, both 12MP shooters with Samsung and Sony sensors. These combine to capture stunning-looking photos, with or without the Portrait mode feature. HDR results are especially impressive with the Mi 8 Pro, while Xiaomi has also added some bonus features including a Pro mode. Night smarts aren't quite as strong as the likes of the Mate 20 sadly, but the Mi 8 Pro works beautifully in other conditions. As for video, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro's dual-lens camera can shoot up to 4K resolution footage. You can also grab Full HD video at 120FPS. Check out our full review of the Mi 8 Pro to see what we think of the rest of Xiaomi's smartphone. We've also produced a tips and tricks guide to help you get started with your Mi 8 Pro.
We review Xiaomi's first official UK phone, the Mi 8 Pro - a premium-specced mobile boasting an impressive dual-lens camera, Snapdragon 845 smarts and a funky transparent design. But is the Mi 8 Pro a worthy alternative to the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 and the other best new phones delivering strong value for money? Glance at the specs and this Xiaomi phone immediately impresses. The Pro edition of the Mi 8 is similar to the OnePlus in many ways, including that in-screen fingerprint sensor, dual-lens camera and Snapdragon chipset providing speedy performance. However, rivals like Huawei's Mates offer bigger batteries and more impressive camera tech - so can the Mi 8 Pro really cut it in a super-tough market, despite that great £499 asking price? There are some quirks with Xiaomi's MiUI overlay, although some slick features are added to Android, while face unlock is still MIA at launch. However, the Mi 8 Pro's camera is seriously impressive in most conditions, while speed and battery life are solid. Go check out our full Mi 8 Pro camera review to see what we think of Xiaomi's snapper, while our tips and tricks guide takes a closer look at the best MiUI features.
text Huawei Mate 20 Unboxing & Tour
Unboxing and full tour of Huawei's beastly Mate 20 smartphone, a 6.53-inch monster boasting a tri-lens rear camera, premium specs and full EMUI 9. Although the Mate 20 doesn't boast the same in-screen fingerprint sensor and some slimmed-down specs and camera tech compared with the Pro, you still get a lot of the same cool features. That ultra-wide-angle lens is back alongside the telephoto lens to capture great-looking shots, while Huawei's Kirin 980 chipset provides stunning performance - speed isn't an issue. Battery life is also strong, as the Mate 20 boasts a mighty 4000mAh cell (although the Super Charge isn't as fast). And with Huawei's EMUI 9 on board, the Mate 20 also delivers some great features including full gesture support, one-handed help and streamlined settings. Check out our unboxing and review of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro for more on the super-premium Mate model, and stay tuned for more on this Mate 20 handset.
We go hands-on for a full tour of Oppo's RX17 Neo, a budget-friendly version of the RX17 Pro - once again sporting slick design, but with pared-back specs for a lower asking price. The RX17 Neo is coming to Europe before the end of 2018 for 349 Euros (we're still waiting on an official UK price and release date). You get that same gorgeous front-filling 6.4-inch screen, with a built in fingerprint sensor, plus ColorOS 5.4. However, the Snapdragon chipset has been switched to a 660 for the Oppo RX17 Neo, while the battery tech lacks that VOOC+ super charge feature. You get a less impressive dual lens camera too, although the RX17 Neo can still shoot 4K resolution video and boasts plenty of cool features - even if it doesn't quite 'seize the night' like the Pro model. Check back soon for our full RX17 Neo review, and go take a look at our RX17 Pro hands-on review for a run-down of the specs, camera tech and more.
We go hands-on with the Oppo RX17 Pro at the European launch, checking out the tri-lens camera tech, VOOC+ battery charging feature and ColorOS software. The specs might not be as premium as the OnePlus 6T, but the RX17 Pro is a great-looking phone with slick design and in-screen fingerprint sensor. Not bad at all for a 599 Euros asking price. Oppo launched two phones in Milan on November 6: the RX17 Pro and Neo, and the Pro is the more intriguing of the two. Performance seems solid and the dual battery tech means swift and safe charging, while the night-oriented camera can capture great looking low light shots. Here we explore the Oppo RX17 Pro's hardware and software, checking out the best features and running through the specs, so you know what to expect. ColorOS might have a few quirks but there's plenty of good stuff in there too. Is the RX17 Pro the best new Android handset right now, strong competition for the likes of the Oneplus 6T? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for a full review and camera test.
Unboxing and full setup and tour of Google's Home Hub, the latest Google Home smart speaker with a built-in display for visual information. You get full Assistant functionality, complete with voice control and support for popular smart home gadgets from the likes of Nest. The Home Hub is simple to setup thanks to Google's Home app, and the functionality is sound - you get the full set of features, including video playback from the likes of YouTube, music streaming from Spotify (although sound quality is rather weak), and on-demand info. That 7-inch display is tiny of course, so best used simply for reading recipes, checking your calendar and so on. There's also no built-in camera for video conferencing. Is the Google Home Hub the best Assistant-driven smart speaker you can buy in 2018/2019? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, but personally we prefer the Lenovo Smart Display.
We review the Pixel 3 smartphone from Google, one of the most expensive Android mobiles of 2018 - but not the best. It's pleasingly compact and we like the stock Android Pie, but the Pixel 3's camera tech hasn't evolved enough from last year's Pixel 2, while the handset offers few USPs over more affordable blowers like the OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Pocophone. The Pixel 3's specs are solid enough, with a Snapdragon 845 chipset powering the show and reasonably good battery life. And that single-lens 12MP camera is still great in a range of conditions, although the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro still have it beat for night shots. But I've experienced a few little issues with the Pixel in my three weeks with it, including Bluetooth connectivity problems, app crashes and more. And the Pixel 3 asking price is a little too steep considering you don't get the super-flexible camera of the Mate 20 Pro, or anything much you won't find on the OnePlus 6T 9 (especially as the call screening isn't available in the UK yet). Check out our in-depth Pixel 3 camera review and unboxing for everything else you need to know.

We review the Nokia 7.1, the latest Android One smartphone from the Nokia brand - a mid-range mobile packing HDR visuals, and a few surprises. The Nokia 7 Plus is still a great mid-range mobile and now we have the Nokia 7.1, which you’d think would be an upgrade over that older 7 Plus model. But strangely a lot of the specs have actually taken a step backwards - although impressively, the Nokia 7.1 does boast an HDR-ready screen, for a £300 UK price. So is the Nokia 7.1 worth getting over the older handset? Here's my full review, and you can check out our camera feature for a run-down of the photo and video quality. For an in-depth look at the Android One interface and features, head over to our Nokia 7.1 unboxing. And subscribe for more reviews of the latest mobile tech!
We review the OnePlus 6T's dual lens camera tech, now packing a new Night Mode feature and the usual 4K video smarts, after 5 full days of testing. At a glance, the OnePlus 6T sports the same smartphone camera specs as the older OnePlus 6 - a 16MP primary lens and 20MP secondary snapper, both with f/1.7 apertures - as well as a tasty bit of Optical Image Stabilisation for sharp photo quality. However, the OnePlus 6T does boast some bonus smarts - namely a fresh new Night Mode. And photo results do differ from the OnePlus 6, as do the video results, which are now seriously vibrant. 4K video capture at 60FPS is once again on offer, with smooth image stabilisation. I’ve been testing out the camera tech for a few days now and here’s my full review of the OnePlus 6T's photo and video chops. Stay tuned for our in-depth phone review for all you need to know about the rest of the OP6T! #oneplus6t #OP6T #6Tcamerareview
