Camera quality? Splendid.

Huawei never disappoints in cameras/battery/design.but without GMS Why would anyone buy this!

They are like ODM Chinese phone brand spewing out super specs and numbers left and right but in reality it's pretty much just above average. I wouldn't expect GN2 to make any serious jump in image quality compared to what they already have, it will be an evolution. It can have gazillion of stuff like SuperISO, staggered HDR puke effect and what not but none of that guarantees nothing much like with GN1.

Given how much Xperia 1 II suffers from inconsistent sharpness across the frame, lacklustre details in low light and rather poor video recording capability/quality in stock camera app, I would not dare to put it above any of the current Oppo/Vivo flagships. It just doesn't fare very well in auto.

Have fun with high noise level in low light and rolling shutter effect when you're shooting at fast moving objects.

  • art of buying Huawei

The art of buying a Huawei premium phone in 2021:
- The phones under consideration: Mate X2, P50Pro, P50Pro+

- What kind of buyer are you?
1) I am a kind of interested in owning a premium Huawei phone. Will wait for a review.
-- I suggest that you buy some other phones. A future Huawei premium phone owner will thank you for vacating this spot. Huawei will thank you for helping reducing the "traffic jam" in all the rush to order.

2) Huawei is my favorite and will pay the full price for its quality. If I can't get one after my best effort, I might consider other brands.
-- I am sorry I can't help you much here, but best luck in your pursuit of a Huawei premium phone.

3) I will only consider Huawei. Will be willing to pay higher price if I can't get one through normal means. I will wait for Mate 50Pro+ if all else fail.
-- You are the kind of person I can be most helpful. Here is my advice: Place 2 pre-orders with full payments as soon as the pre-ordering is available, one pre-order with one of your favorite online e-commerce sites (Alibaba, JD, Sunning, vmall), and another pre-order with your local Huawei flagship store. In the event that you get both pre-orders fulfilled, you can easily transfer the sale to a local buyer, or resell it online for a profit.

Android--Master, 25 Feb 2021Good one. He simply refuses to answer these questions. Yeah, the poster didn't reply because a sane person doesn't define themselves to a specific country, region or area because we're all from this world / galaxy and from a female tummy altogether so your argument is invalid so try better next time, master.

Huawei knew without GMS their sale will drop significantly but to think Huawei still going, that mean China market still buy them a lot
