Earlier this year, I carried out a detailed camera test with the Huawei P8 and the Honor 6 Plus on a holiday to Disneyland Paris, and now I’ve started to do some camera tests with the brand new Huawei Mate S, featuring a 13-megapixel RGBW camera that’s (on paper at least) exactly like that of the P8.

That should mean the camera is at least as good as the P8, which I found to be a great all-rounder, and particularly good at getting great shots nearly every time in the automatic mode. No fuss and very little risk of disappointment – a must for any phone.

One of the other phones I’ve recently used that also inspires confidence in every ‘click’ is the LG G4. If only every phone was like this – and I can’t wait to put one of the new Sony Xperia Z5 models to the test when they’re released next month.

For now, I’ll let the camera do the talking. If you have any comments, please let me know below or via Twitter. And if you like this page, or any others, please share the page. Thanks!
