If you love Samsung so much, u can start yourself on older Galaxy camera ad, which you yourself knows how its actual quality in real life. I dont mind if you dont trust me, but i know exactly what I've saw.

The got caught is A8, not A9 (eventhough all A9 camera ad got 'for illustrative purposes' watermark lol).

We need proof. Proof from a trustworthy source.
I'm not sure But I don't remember Samsung doing any pre release photo officially.
Same goes about others. Please share some real source just like Emeline shared about Huawei caught cheating.

I dont want to pick any link when u can easily search for all of those ads on youtube. Just provide some example.

Iphone - do u believe selfie shots on billboard signboard (needs a lot of resolution) on highway taken by 7mp front cam?
- Its ad on adjustable DOF definitely DSLR quality lol.

Samsung - Admit for faking A9 shots. Thats when its got caught, imagine the one its not (I've seen plenty of them)

Sony - Pathethic promo on its lossless zoom & lowlight camera ad on a video (Z1), when i know on reality its not (know the actual limitation, even i bought the phone)

Nokia - Lumia 920? Caught using DSLR? Afterwards all its ad got 'for illustrative purposes' watermark, means still cheating but safe play using watermark.

Actually if youre seriously knows about photography, can easily spot between DSLR or smartphone cam quality. There are some real photos used of course, but most of the time its not. I think this issue getting far off from what these thread about. Gonna leave it here.

Shui8, 02 Apr 2020Did u even open the link? By definition it means a 35mm film equ... moreYou lack sense of humor. I wasn't doing a war with you with the definition.
I was saying the camera isn't enough wide as the competitors.
I am not sure why do you keep giving me the definition.
Now about the main camera you said it's 27mm while pixel binning.
Can't the sensor shoot at full 50MP ?
I assume it can. Then this also is a ultrawide according to your definition.
I don't get it why are you making it complicated ?
I was simply saying as the P40 pro has much narrower field of view, can we really call it ultrawide ? My sentence was more on the hypothetical rather than a concrete definitaion.

As you are so much shouting about the definition. Let's say this,
Using degrees of view is much more easier than using the focal length as the focal length changes for sensor type . In mid 20th century when ultrawide angle lenses was introduced then the definition was to have more than 120 degree filed of view. Later the manufacturers brought it down to 90 degree view for totally business purpose.
I'm not complaining on this either.
I simply saying adding 18mm lens doesn't add much more in the frame.

Shui8, 02 Apr 2020Oh this issue again. I dont believe on the ads at all, rather wa... moreYou are making serious accusation.
Can you share any source for your accusation on Apple, Samsung, Sony and Nokia(the real one) ?

[deleted post]And I wasnt either. The real question is can you & I call it as ultrawide, when its narrower than others? I simply explain its not about you can call it or not, because it is a must, as a basic knowledge in focal lenght. Get it?

[deleted post]I'm considering buying the Pro as I'm really curious about the camera system.

I'm worried about the potential screen issue if getting a device with an LG panel because other users affected by the Mate 20 Pro Gluegate reported that they didn't experience issues before 1-3 months after the purchase. At that time the 14 day return policy does not apply anymore so it would be more problematic if that happened with the P40 Pro as well.

Sorry but i wont entertain people that has this kind of attitude. Bye.

This is just one (actually 2) examples of Huawei lying and cheating their customers: https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/11/18260213/huaw­ei-fake-photos-p30-pro-camera-ad-dslr

[deleted post]I dont think it will, same as professional. The very wide lens only suitable for vlogging people, u know, the one that like to use GoPro. And i never saw a 'Dramatic Movie' using lens that wide.

That is all marketing stuff. Its more to show the features for illustrative purposes. Average joe will fall for it, but not me.

It goes the same to every company, u name it, Sony, Huawei, Nokia, Samsung, Apple....all use DSLR for their camera marketing (some saved by watermark 'for illustrative purposes'). I can definitely spot it right away.

Specially presenting DSLR's photo saying it's capurted by their phone.

And the 18mm 'Cine' Lens using more traditional 3:2 sensor like DSLR does. Got that cinematic effect, especially for videos. And for professionals, it is spot on. I rarely saw professional photographer/videographer using the narrower lens that smartphone nowadays implementing. Back in the days, its just for vlogging people that travels a lot, like using a GoPro.

And the definiton about UltraWide angle, its just basic photography. - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_wide_angle­_lens

[deleted post]Well i trust them (especially Huawei/Honor), jumpship from Sony, for about 4 years now. Fully satisfied & looking forward for their next flagship.

Emeline Shaw, 01 Apr 2020Thanks for explaning this. Do you know why Huawei made their len... moreWell previous Mate 20 & P30 using narrower 16mm FL.

Its starting Mate 30, they implement 3:2 sensor with 18mm FL, dedicated for more dramatic cinema effect in videography, hence its called 'Cine' Lens.
