More Than 50% of British People Avoid Tourist Hotspots According to Recent Research


A report commissioned by Huawei to celebrate the recent launch of the P20 Pro handset, reveals that more than half of British people avoid photographing some of the most beautiful locations abroad whilst on holiday. This report was conducted in respect of holiday destinations within the UK.  We are extremely short of space, here in the UK and overcrowded most of the time, so it’s not altogether surprising that we don’t wish to queue to take shots while we have some free downtime, sadly. The report goes on to say “UK tourists spend a collective 25 million hours just to queue, view and photograph landmarks, nearly half (45%) are becoming increasingly frustrated trying to capture the picture-perfect holiday shot. The younger generation in the UK are the most anxious age group when it comes to capturing that perfect photo, with 76% of 18 – 24 year olds becoming stressed and 1 in 10 taking up to 400 photos on average during their getaway to capture the ultimate shot”.

According to the Huawei report, these are the results:

“We are committed to identifying and alleviating the common frustrations that people experience with technology” says Andrew Garrihy, Huawei Western Europe Chief Marketing Officer. “By combining the most advanced camera system with the most intelligent camera experience, the Huawei P20 Pro is able to bring point and shoot perfection to the smartphone and help people to easily capture that picture-perfect shot.”

Helped by the world’s first Leica triple camera on a smartphone and featuring a telephoto lens which delivers 5x Hybrid Zoom, it is now possible to photograph holiday landmarks from a distance in outstanding clarity, eliminating the need to queue. Plus, the Huawei P20 Pro voted “best camera in a smartphone, taking number one spots in both our photo and video rankings” by DxOMark3, uses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically adjust the camera settings to use the right skills at the right moment, so tourists can capture the perfect shot first time, every time, even in extreme low-light conditions.
