The quality of the smartphone of the Asian brand is not afraid to face the camera of iPhone or Huawei devices.
The cell phone industry is characterized by improving each of its functions every year, and 2020, despite the pandemic, was no exception.
Among the devices with the best cameras, the new iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max or Huawei Mate 40 Pro stands out. However, the Xiaomi brand is not far behind in the imaginary list of best cameras of the year 2020.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is considered one of the best device of the Chinese company and there is still another smartphone that surpasses it by very little. It is the POCO F2.
The Xiaomi device has a quad camera with 64 MP, 5 MP, 13 MP and 2 MP lenses on its back, it also has a 20 megapixel front camera that appears through a motorized mechanism.
The camera app is pretty straightforward and easy to use, even if you come from another Android phone. Swiping left and right will take you through the main modes. The icons at the top of the viewer give you quick toggles for AI, HDR, Macro, and filters. The so-called « hamburger » menu gives you a bit more options to play with.
Regarding the performance of the camera, during the day the smoothness of the images stands out, which together with a pleasant color reproduction, establishes a perfect balance between the sharpness and saturation of the photograph.
In the case of night, the noise it offers stands out to give input to the little light that may be outside. The four cameras are aligned to give specific shadows that provide contrast in the photograph.
Ultra Wide Mode
For panoramic photos, this device provides an ultra-wide lens correction which makes a better perspective of the image.
In the case of the night, the experience is different and although the results are not surprising, they are enough.
At this point, there is no one to beat Huawei devices yet. However, the POCO F2 Pro is that smartphone that comes closest to it with respect to the Zoom switch.
Both day and night, the cell phone achieves an enviable quality for other devices.
The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro came on the market in May 2020 and its price is around $ 606.40.
