Huawei P10 - Is the camera as good as people think?

The Huawei P10 is the new flagship phone from the chinese tech company Huawei. Not only does it have the new android system as well as 4GB of RAM (in the small version), it also has 2 (yes 2) Leica developed cameras. A 12MP camera and a 20MP monochrome camera.

Obviously (anyone who follows my instagram will know this) I love monochrome high contrast B/W. So to me this phone which seemed high quality with good hardware, as well as 2 great cameras seemed like the obvious choice for my new phone. 

On Instagram I haven't used a phone camera for multiple years, because the results from professional cameras were just oh so much better than phone cameras. However, the last 4 out of 5 posts have been taken with the P10. The B/W is crisp, high contrast and filled with detail. The in-built camera can be configurated individually with the possiblity to adjust the ISO from 50 to 3200 as well as the shutter speed from 1/4000 to 30s. 

This truly does make the camera, a tool which one can use everyday and sucessfully. The options making it oh so customisable, gives people who enjoy controlling their photography to the nth degree, the actually possibility to do so.

Not only is there the monochrome and color options yet also a variety of other modes incl. Night Mode, Light Painting, HDR, Panorama, Time-Lapse, as well as an in-built document scanner and the standard insta filters built in.

I have not yet tried out the mass of these other options, however when I do, I will be updating this post.
