Xiaomi launched its flagship smartphone Mi 8 on 31 May. According to the review by DxOMark, the industry standard that measures the phones camera and lens quality, Mi 8 offers a camera performance which is one of the best.
The phone has been tested by them in closed environments as well as in natural conditions. The Mi 8 offered some improvements over the earlier Mi MIX 2S model according to DxOMark.
The rear-facing camera features twin 12 MP cameras with one being a wide angle and the other a short telephoto lens.
Here are some of the key features highlighted by DxOMark camera test pertaining to the Xiaomi Mi 8:
- Mi 8 captured highly detailed images with accurate exposures with a slight hint of vividly rendered colours when tested outdoors.
- The noise reduction leads to a loss of finer details of the photo but captures uniform backgrounds well.
- The phone performs well under low light conditions giving decent images under challenging shooting conditions.
- The phone is capable of magnification at 2x both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions.
- It also has a good flash, however, a slight yellow colour cast.
- Auto-focus is on point as the images turn out to be blur-free.
- The secondary camera can be used to create a blurring bokeh effect in the background. Also, optical zooming is enabled.
- Xiaomi Mi 8's video recording feature isn’t quite as strong as it is in stills.
