Learn to be a skillful photographer

Taking a photo on your phone seems like a relatively simple thing now. Indeed, it’s got this way because phone manufacturers have added a whole heap of artificial intelligence into your smartphone to do the “heavy lifting” for you.As an example, taking an up-close photo will have your phone automatically switching to the wide-angle or macro lens.

These are the two real questions that I have been trying to answer over the past few weeks in my usage of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro. As I previously mentioned in my first impressions post I am very heavily invested in using Google for a lot of things in my daily drivers. It is in fact one of the reasons why when I heard the news that Huawei were no longer going to be able to use the full Google services suite, I jumped ship to a Pixel device. Since then it has been over a year and Huawei has had a bit of time to get their App store off the ground and sort their back end systems out.
