Both seems to have the same level of detail. It's just a personal preference. I'll go with the sharper default one.
But in the direct comparison photo, the default has more detail.

Its better to avoid Huawei at the moment without GAPPS installed.
Also the cloneApp is not always working, and you need to be lucky that your bank especially in Europe will develop a app for the Huawei store.

Also with the Kirin SoC no ROM community available for in the future to have better ROMS with GAPPS etc.

"If these 50MP shots are downscaled to 12.5MP - they won't exhibit more detail compared to the default photos..."

Seriously GSMArena, you really need to get your eyes checked! I can clearly see much better and clearer detail with the downscaled photo instead of that over-glorified oversharpening mess in the default photo.

It really annoys me that to have high end features across the board means buying the physically largest device. And no stereo speakers on any of them?

Am i blind?
Downscaled 50mpx to 12.5mpx are so much better than deafult 12.5mpx. And full 50mpx shots obviously have much more details.

but what disappoints me is that is doesn't have 90 Hz like is bigger models.

Why you do not measure Dynamic Range in out reviews?

Dear Gsmarena team p40 has half of the maximum iso of p40 pro like 2 lac something

The fact that it uses the same primary camera as the Pro version is somewhat admirable. Hopefully the disparities will lessen even further in future models.

Amazing😍😍
