According to the evaluation, DxOMark believes that the screen of Huawei P50 Pro has four advantages
- Brightness is suitable for watching HDR10 video
- Legibility in low light and indoor conditions is very good
- Touch is smooth and accurate
- The device is almost flicker-free.
Although the Huawei P50 Pro’s screen is in the first position, there are still some shortcomings. DxOMark lists four points
- Default brightness is too low for pleasant readability in outdoor conditions.
- A slight yellow/green cast is noticeable in most tested conditions.
- Dark tones lack detail when watching HDR10 video content.
- Frame drops are sometimes noticeable when starting video games.
In terms of legibility, the P50 Pro is excellent as long as it is not in the highest brightness environment. Furthermore, the brightness adjustment is smooth and rapid, without obvious gradients. Nevertheless, when the ambient light rises, the device response is a bit slow, and the brightness will be lost when the screen is viewed from an angle.
In terms of colour performance, the Huawei P50 Pro shows high-fidelity effects in sRGB (standard) colours and is more excellent for image restoration. However, there is a slight yellow colour cast in anti-blue light mode, which is almost the same as the leader Samsung.
For videos and dynamics, the Huawei P50 Pro is also significantly better than the previous generation. The effect of the HDR10 display is particularly good, and the response is full. After advancing the progress bar, the video can resume and continue immediately, which brings great results/user experience.
In terms of touch control, the Huawei P50 Pro performs better. The corners and edges are easy to operate. The device is smooth when playing games and when browsing the web. However, there is a clear gradient when viewing photos in the gallery program.
