Terrible photos via sms and whatsapp with Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Level 1
1 of 4

So I just got the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro last Friday. All fast and fantastic, until I started taking photos via WhatsApp or Signal/Text Messaging (MMS) ..

I mean, the quality is just... Terrible. Pixelized, unsharp bad colors... 

Compared the MMS and Whatsapp via IPhone 7, Samsung S8+ and Huawei M20 pro... And am ready to return the latest.


Anyone else having this issue?  Huawei Mate 20 ProHuawei Mate 20 Pro

Do you really ask this question or is that a joke ?

MMS has a poor resolution and what's app compresses the picture.

You should transfer the pictures on a computer and than judge. 

AFAIK this phone has one of the best camera available.

I really ask this question and it is not a joke... At all!

When comparing same subject of photo and sending over MMS with Samsung S8+ /iPhone 7/ Mate 20 Plus, Huawei is definetely the worst resolution.

I mean, I had a friend of mine laughing at my photo as I was bragging about my phone... 


And it is not a joke no... Even Huawei already acknowledge there is an issue. 


Stay good.

ok 🙂

Sorry I don't have a solution. Perrsonally I haven't sent MMS since years.

I guess that your question would be better asked directly in a Huawei Support forum.
