#1 Camera Performance
This camera has a physically adjustable aperture, how cool is that?
While most smartphones try to cater to everyone, some models cater to specific needs. In this case, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is firmly aimed at mobile photographers. Its 50MP main camera has several great features including laser autofocus, optical image stabilization, and a 10-size adjustable physical F1.4 aperture.
In addition to the hardware, the Mate 50 Pro also comes with HUAWEI’s XD Fusion Pro image engine. The XD Fusion Pro can adjust image brightness and highlight and shadow details, giving you a lot of control over how your photos turn out. Thanks to this, you can take photos of incredibly high quality even in low light conditions. If you didn’t already know, the Mate 50 Pro even took first place in DXOMark, which is pretty impressive!

#2 Screen quality
It has a large OLED screen
Another aspect that really impressed us was the screen. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro has a large 6.74-inch screen that uses an OLED panel capable of outputting 1212 x 2616 pixels at a 120Hz refresh rate. Whether it’s movies or mobile games, you’ll enjoy sharp, vibrant and smooth images. on this screen. But that’s not all, as the screen is also super resistant.
Specifically, the Orange Vegan Leather version comes with Kunlun glass on the screen. This glass consists of 10 quadrillion nanocrystals, which makes it ultra-resistant against accidental drops. In fact, it allowed the Mate 50 Pro to be the first smartphone to receive a 5-star glass drop resistance certification from the Swiss SGS certification institute. The device is also IP68 waterproof up to 6m underwater.

#3 Battery Life
The last 1% of the battery can last long enough with the low battery emergency mode
If you look at the spec sheet, a 4700mAh battery doesn’t sound like much. But the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro has an interesting battery feature: Low Battery Emergency Mode. This feature allows the Mate 50 Pro to extend the remaining 1% battery to a standby time of over 2 hours or give you an additional 12 minutes of talk time when enabled. This can be useful if you’re stuck outside with no way to charge your phone but need to make an emergency call.
