Xiaomi is making waves in the smartphone industry. It’s ousted LG as the fifth-largest điện thoại cảm ứng manufacturer in the world, sold out of its Mi3 in mere seconds countless times, and created compelling sản phẩm after compelling product.
Still, not everyone is convinced mi is deserving of all the praise và success it has earned seemingly overnight. The four-year-old company sometimes uses some pretty sheisty tactics. It’s accused of ripping off the late Steve Jobs’ style – from his wardrobe khổng lồ his presentation style. The company is said to lớn have been built on similar principles as Apple. Và many of its products và software look like, well … Apple’s.
The Mi4, the company’s latest high-end smartphone, is really no different. Its stainless steel band kiến thiết has caught a lot of flak so far. But there’s no denying the design và engineering prowess of Xiaomi. The Mi4 is solid, & so is its danh sách of specifications, which easily compete with devices lượt thích the LG G3 – 3GB RAM, a Snapdragon 801 So
C, a 13-megapixel primary camera, 3,080m
Ah battery, & so on. In fact, yesterday, I compared the Mi4 with the G3; you can find that video clip here. But what about the Mi4’s camera quality? Is it up to snuff?
Seeing as camera unique has become a make or break feature for many over the years, we thought we’d treat you lớn a few galleries which show what the Mi4 is capable of. You can find those below!
mi Mi4 camera samples: daylight và bright indoors
Frankly, we weren’t terribly impressed with the Mi4 when we compared it to lớn the G3. It’s certainly not the worst camera we’ve used, though. The images it produces are notably warm và there was more noise và less detail than we’re used khổng lồ seeing, especially out of a 13-megapixel camera. The Mi4 sometimes missed focus, particularly with close-ups.
Out of the box, the dynamic range is quite limited, often overexposing at the hint of a light source, even in broad daylight. Fortunately, there is an HDR mode (which we briefly cover below) and plenty of software settings lớn tweak in the stock MIUI camera application.
We didn’t spend too much time messing with HDR, since it’s a pretty basic feature for most smartphones these days. However, you will cảnh báo that it does a great job in the two photos below. In the photo of the trees, which you can also find with HDR off in the above gallery, the leaves are detailed & not overexposed. & in the photo of the shadowed basketball goal (also included above without HDR), you can see toggling HDR does a great job of pulling out the shadows.
The Mi4 really doesn’t handle low lighting situations well at all. Noise and artifacts litter the pictures, you get a rather soft focus, và colors become very muted. No stabilization is present – hardware or software – & you can expect to be unimpressed by the Mi4’s camera indoors và at night. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though.
Like many smartphones of late, the Mi4 comes with a built-in refocusing feature. Of course, it’s not lượt thích the One M8’s Duo Camera setup, meaning you’ll need lớn plan ahead & hold the camera extra steady when taking a photo to be refocused. In essence, it’s taking multiple pictures and choosing different focus depths each time. The result is actually pretty great và you can export refocused pictures at full resolution.
The front camera on the Mi4 is worth noting. It’s 8-megapixels, meaning it’s an even higher resolution than Sony’s so-called selfie phone. Not only that, but it has facial recognition for auto-focus and, for some reason, it can accurately guess the age of the faces in the viewfinder. Different angles made it guess improperly, but it was very quick to lớn lock-on and guess an age relatively close to mine (24).
Anyway, the photos taken with the front camera are some of the best we’ve seen. It’s a relatively wide angle, meaning you can cram a lot of people in a selfie without dislocating your arm, và there’s plenty of resolution khổng lồ play with in post. However, the front camera isn’t going lớn compete with 8-megapixel primary cameras on other phones – the sensor is much smaller & the detail suffers from that. But for selfies and clip calls, it doesn’t get much better than this. Just … toggle off the beauty effects unless you want khổng lồ look lượt thích a cartoon character.
While the xiaomi Mi3 had come with a 13-megapixel back camera, & the device was priced quite low when compared lớn its successor, the main question for many would be whether the xiaomi Mi4 has got any improvements to lớn its 13-megapixel shooter, and whether the upgrade would be worth it, if the camera is taken into consideration.
If this was the MIUI v5, we would have been very much disappointed, because the way xiaomi mi has added some options to control exposure, brightness & filters, the camera phầm mềm makes the capture experience better. So firstly, let’s put the focus on the application itself.
Like the i
OS camera app, swiping up và down opens up different sets of options – swipe down and you get to see filters with live preview on each of them, & swipe up to lớn see various options, such as Audio capture, Highlight tones, Burst shoot, Panorama, HDR capture (which has both Normal HDR và Live HDR), Refocus mode & Manual control options.
Refocus mode works pretty neatly, where you just need to take a picture, và it later allows you khổng lồ refocus on any of the object in the picture. Rules apply though, as you might need the objects khổng lồ be in a good distance from one another. The various filters include Mono, Vivid, Yesteryear, Blur, Fish Eye, Mosaic, Dawn, Japanese, Autumn, Indigo and Mirror.
While you focus by tapping finger on the object, there’s a wheel shown with shutter icon, as well as a drag, which when rotated changes the brightness in the picture. That’s good when you don’t want some pictures khổng lồ be too bright or low lit unnecessarily.
Samples of low light captures, with manual brightness control.
The captures are great in màu sắc output, even without the HDR mode. With great, we might not điện thoại tư vấn it the best of the 13MP cameras out there, as the LG G3 had better captures in bright light. Even in low light, there are noticeable grains, & more importantly, colors are all gone if there is no good light source.
The bigger problem is, there is no stabilization offered by both, hardware & software. Even a little shake, is a shake noticed in the final capture. If all goes well, you kết thúc up getting a decent picture in all light conditions, but a little struggle might be there for focusing onto the object in low light.
HDR does a wonderful job, taking away shadows & adding a more natural touch. The normal HDR would be more preferred than Live HDR, as the Live HDR was more or less what you see on a normal capture.
The 8-megapixel front-facing camera was great in every way – number & quality. Sony, Samsung & such brands claim to lớn have selfie phones, with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera which artificially flattens the picture. Xiaomi mi takes it to lớn the next level, although we aren’t seeing something new (Gionee Elife E7 had a 8MP selfie camera with Autofocus). The camera is capable of face recognition và focusing on it, và also guessing the age of the person based on facial features. In my case, it failed big time. But the kết thúc captures were very good.
We’re yet to vì chưng some video recording lớn show the footage of the same, và it is possible khổng lồ capture 4K videos using the 13-megapixel rear shooter of the xiaomi Mi4, while the other options include HDR, fast motion & slow motion.

How much did we like the cameras on the Mi4? They are surely better than what we had seen on the predecessor, i.e. The Mi3, but still, they aren’t convincing enough to lớn be called the best cameras with 13MP sensors. Main reason, is the lack of stabilization.
