Thanks GSM ARENA for keeping us informed about Huawei tactics!

Yronk, 22 Apr 2020they dont need to cheat i quess..p40 have the best camera s... moreExcept that little fact that their "ultrawide" is just a little bit wider than e.g. Galaxy's "wide" camera. And their OiS still sucks. What to say, it's one bad year.

a, 23 Apr 2020cant compare with Huawei. They are just another level of fakersThey are nowhere the level of Samsung which will market you a Snapdragon and then secretly sell you an Exynos which makes a difference between practically usable and practically unusable phone. That is, even if we don't mention all the other army of defects their phones are released with. Huawei may be run by communists, but Samsung is run straight up by gangsters, and it's not even a secret anymore.

NotAnOpinion, 22 Apr 2020Over 48-hours late, GSMArena, on Huawei's DSLR debacle... a... moreDxO is like the "World Camera Organization" for chinese phones, if such a thing ever existed.

Quote, "Huawei has officially apologized since, saying the photos were wrongly marked and explaining it all with an oversight by the editor."

There is only one word appropriate in response to Huawei's "oversight by the editor":

BULLS#IT.

Fraud o not DOXmark still praises Huawei phones because they are the best no matter what they posts with which camera.

You guys are acting like marketting business is purely honest. These companies are after ur money. Expect them to lie to ambush u. I am using an Iphone and i know for sure Apple lies alot. Same thing for Apple and Samsung and others.

Huawei has to stop doing this, especially in their home market where they don't need to convince people to buy their phones.
