We also took similar shots with the Pixel 3 XL which is known for its single camera performance, and the results were neck to neck with the P30 Pro, a slight edge goes to the Pixel for its image processing and more natural colors.

The cameras in the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom are housed inside the body of the phone which makes it more safer than the P30 pro which has protruding back camera setup.

In conclusion, both the smartphones have lived up to their claims, however, the P30 Pro takes the win due to the better image processing giving a cleaner and well balanced colours.
