Huawei's P30 Pro has four cameras on the back, including a super wide-angle lens, a regular zoom lens, a huge 10x zoom and a time-of-flight sensor for depth of field effects. 

The company is hoping that these four cameras make the phone a more exciting prospect than the Galaxy S10 Plu's three rear cameras.

I've taken the phone out across Paris to see what it can do, so click through to see the results.

First up, this cormorant, photographed using the 10x zoom lens. It's amazing that I'm able to get a close-up wildlife shot like this on a phone.

The bridge in the distance of this wide shot is barely visible in the picture.

But it fills the frame when using the full zoom.

The phone has done a good job of balancing the bright sun rays in the sky against the shadowy foreground.

There's tons of detail in this wide river scene.

I used the wide-angle lens to capture more of this old arcade. Unfortunately, the phone hasn't done a great job of balancing the exposure, resulting in a washed-out sky.

Huawei's previous P20 Pro was excellent in low light and the P30 Pro is much the same. Even in the normal camera mode this shot looks decent.

But turning the dedicated night mode on results in an even better photo, with more shadow detail and better clarity overall.

The colours on this eclair are more muted than the same shot I took on the Galaxy S10 Plus, but they're arguably more natural looking.

I tried using the "silky water" long exposure function, but it resulted in the whole image looking quite blurry.

The phone has captured a beam of light from the Eiffel Tower as well as lots of shadow detail.
