Say "cheese", then rate this thread to express how photos taken with the Huawei P40 Pro+ come out. A higher rating indicates that photos offer rich color (without over-saturating), sharp detail (with all subjects in-focus), and appropriate exposure (with even lighting).

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Not for nothing, that top picture is horrendous. That HDR didn't work at all around the tree.

The problem is filters only work with the data they are provided and tune it. The HDR error is not in the filter, but in the original. And that's a problem.

We can't know for sure without seeing the original. If the filter literally adds a glow around the edges of darker objects, accentuating them against the sky, then it's working as intended and the HDR is not to blame. Since filters can be pretty fancy these days, rather than simple colour shift ones of the past, I'd reserve judgement. Some phones can even insert AR characters or masks with "filters"... Kermit the frog doesn't look like a filter to me, but some programmer thought he was.

That's not how filters work. You made that up out of thin air. This is a common problem with most every HDR system, even the very best ones will have errors like this and the filter effect you're seeing here is that it enhanced the contrast between the lighter and darker rendered areas of the sky. The problem is the rendering that was cooked into the original and the tree is the classic test example for HDR accuracy and refinement. It may not be a huge difference in the original, but the data is there and the filter amplifies it. The end result is that if this issue is cooked into the original, it makes processing latitude, whether using simple filters, or using professional processing software, extremely limited, if not time consuming.

You're trying to fake technical talk. I'm a photographer, I do this every single day for a living and part of the problem with dealing critically with smartphones and trying to get improvements is that there are people online who act like they designed the phone and are being personally attacked and then lie about what's going on to cover for the company. It's weird as hell where the phone is a tool in some countries, to some people, while in other countries, the phone is your social score. The HDR processing screwed up, BFD. No need to make up transparent lies and excuses and pretend everyone else knows as little as you.

Well yes, it seems that lying about the phone does happen. Maybe to stop people from buying pretty good phones that are serious competition to more expensive ones.

I opened the original in paint.net, grabbed the colour picker and ran my tool from left to right from the right side of the tree to the right side of the image, then right to left from the left side of the tree to the left side of the image... there is barely any change in the RGB values. The sky is pretty consistent horizontally at least until you get to the far left where there are clouds affecting it.
