The Honor V2 Porsche Edition comes with the same camera setup that was on the original — You get a 50-megapixel main sensor with an f/1.9 aperture, a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera with f/2.0 aperture, and a 20-megapixel telephoto camera with a 2.5x optical zoom and f/2.4 aperture. There are two 16-megapixel selfie cameras (one on the exterior screen and one on the interior screen) with an f/2.2 aperture. One maddening aspect of the software is the inability to set the power button to launch the camera when double-pressed.
Overall, the camera setup on the Honor V2 Porsche Edition is not bad. You can capture great photos in great lighting, and the color science between the lenses is quite good, meaning you can capture the same scene regardless of which lens you use. Honor’s camera software has presets for 1x, 2.5x, and 10x zoom, and you really should not go beyond that, despite the fact that “40x” is engraved around the camera enclosure. Truth be told, even in good light, camera quality drops off a cliff after 2.5x. Photos become blocky, smudged, and just not at all attractive. Up to 2.5x, you’re good.
That holds true even in low light — as long as your subjects aren’t moving. Statues at night will capture great photos. If you have moving subjects, like people, for example, your results will be more mixed. Capturing a good photo of moving subjects is possible, but you’ll want to take a few extra shots just to be sure.
