Earlier I was going to buy the Poco F2 pro for her as it was the best budget flasghip of the year. But now with new entrants in the market, I am confused.
There are so many options to choose from.

Maximum budget is 800 Euros. Don't want to pay more than that.
1000 Euros and above flasghips are out of the question as that would be unnecessary expenditure.
Plz suggest some well rounded options... Wouldn't mind importing a phone either if it's a good deal.

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Yeah, but it is brighter than the P40 Pro one. But P40 Pro ... moreHuawei's Ultrawide is too narrow to be called an Ultrawide.
IMO, Ultrawide lens should Atleast offer a FOV above 115° to be acceptable.

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Is an larger sensor with an smaller aperture better than an... moreIn your example equal amount of light is captured by both but the latter is favourable if you consider the noise level + dynamic range at base ISO on each of them.

I'm sorry but why are you asking all this?

Example :

12 MP 1.4 micron pixels, 1/2.55 jnch sensor, F 1.4 aperture

12 MP 1.8 micron pixels, 1/1.7 inch sensor, F 1.8 aperture,

Which one captures more light?

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Yeah, but it is brighter than the P40 Pro one. But P40 Pro ... more1. The latter.
2. Neither. I want a decent image quality and a 15-16mm equivalent lens. Mate 40 Pro+'s UWA camera is the closest to my ideal so far, though I wish the lens was a bit brighter.

Nick Tagataka, 28 Oct 2020Go check the actual samples from Mate 40 Pro then. Look at ... moreYeah, but it is brighter than the P40 Pro one. But P40 Pro has better sharpness and detail.

May i ask you :
1. Which do you prefer, photos that have better HDR but softer or less HDR effects but sharper?

2. Do you prefer wider ultrawide lens but lower quality like other phones or narrower ultrawide like the Huawei one but high quality one?

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Huawei's ultrawide don't, only others ultrawide d... moreGo check the actual samples from Mate 40 Pro then. Look at grass or any other random textures, you see a hint of wormy artifacts especially towards the edges of the frame.

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Nooooo, that's real time 3 exposure HDR like Iphone�... moreProbably I should've explained better, what I meant was it might be actually a QB 80MP sensor with 0.8µm pixels that outputs 20MP images in binning mode.

AnonD-923722, 28 Oct 2020Then why is it more detailed than even 12/16/20 MP ultrawid... moreIt performs super-res stacking (similar to Google's Night Sight and Sony's Pixel Shift technology) on multiple 10MP images produced from remosaicing in order to cancel out the Bayer pattern and increase the effective resolution of the image, while also eliminating a typical QB remosaicing artifacts.

Nick Tagataka, 28 Oct 2020The new UWA sensor has 1.6µm pixels so they are a lot small... moreNooooo, that's real time 3 exposure HDR like Iphone's Smart HDR video. It uses software rather than hardware. How would you explain an 5MP shit upscaled to an 4k footage? It is not hardware bro
