What's good condition actually like?

This or POCO F2 Pro?


Poco is new, poco will be updated longer, this may have the better camera (it does in my opinion) poco has a lovely notch free display, poco has 5G, just some things to consider.

I'd buy this if it were me mind, but that's not to say uts the better phone

Agree with you on this one. The P30 Pro is still a cracking phone and this is a great price

I have the p30 pro, think the daytime camera is terrible compared to the pixels, especially the colours and also find the screen pretty washed out. What is the Poco screen like compared? I only got my p30 recently so I can still send it back.

Very good, I didn't find any aspect of that phone lacking really, I grumbled about the camera, but I'm not a photographer, the p30 pro noticeably better imo. But I could definitely live with both very comfortably

Thanks, worries me a bit if p30 pro camera is noticeably better as I already think the p30 itself is noticeably bad!

Really what I want is stock android, decent screen, decent cam. Too tight to pay for pixel 5 the moment it comes out so need something good to tide me over til then and dont want to spend more than 300-350.

Are you sure you haven't got a faulty phone?

Compression on this may kill it, but..

Not true.
Plenty of articles to the contrary

Have to say I’m in agreement that images are washed out on the P30 Pro vs Pixel of iPhone when it comes to people. It’s very good otherwise though. I think once you use pixel camera everything for stills is poor by comparison.

Fair enough. Na not the greatest shot tbh. But doesn't look washed out is my point.
So the P30 pro, the OnePlus Nord, or the Poco F2 Pro?

The problem is you have seen the pixel pics and undeniably they are the best photos out there ..what you are seeing with the huawei is the oversharpening that is happening compared to the pixel ...i have the huawei mate 20 pro it takes great pics but my pixel 3xl beats it all day long ...

I’ve got some great shots with the 20X and this P30 Pro of nature stuff. I think it’s just everything bar iPhone and Pixel I’ve ever used still makes you more white even with all the beautiful stuff off. Makes sense if you look at cultural influences of wanting to be more fair skinned in much of the east. I guess much like my Note 9 was 2 years ago the P30 Pro is the best all round phone of the last year for me bar the ridiculous priced iPhone 11 Pro Max and maybe the Note 10 (though I feel like many this was arguably a downgrade from the Note 9 in terms of losing useful stuff like Iris scanner, heart rate monitor and of course headphone jack and no notch/hole for some).

P30 Pro has a hyperactive AI on the camera. Switching it off seems to help in many situations.

Best camera I've had on a smartphone. Its the main selling point for sure.

The software and UI however.... Really lacking. After coming over from Samsung there are so many little features that are missing that make daily use kind of frustrating

I think OnePlus gets this part right. Nova helps to some extent though.
With most smartphone cameras these days it is the post processing software that makes it or not breaks it. Lots of manufacturers keep updating the specs on the sensor but it is noticeable enough. The gains come from the software. It is software that uses the depth information to know how much too blur to give depth. It is the software that merges the images to reduce noise or combine neighboring pixels.
In the past these were hard coded and designed algorithms. Today they rely on machine learning.

And Google and Apple through a lot of research money on this. Just check how many papers they publish in cvpr, iccv, eccv and siggraph on computational photography. And this is what they are willing to disclose / say vs imagine what they do behind the scenes.
