Redmi & Nexus 5 Camera face off

Since I have Xiaomi Redmi phone and a Nexus 5. I decided to have a face off of the photo quality.

Let's look at both of the specs first.

Redmi having 8MP camera, f/2.2 aperture, 28mm wide angle lens, and 1080p video recording

Nexus 5 has an 8MP main camera with a 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor and an F2.4 30mm equivalent lens.

Let's shoot it in the day light and these shots are not digitally enhance. The color tone is just as it is.

Let's bring in to a low light shooting.

This is in a room white light environment. Redmi seems to be sharper.

You can see more noise on the Nexus 5. Note that these shots are not digital sharpen. Just some chopping done to get them into size.

So which back camera is better?

ohhh.. that cheapo phone is very impressive. color is better on redmi, a little bit warm but i think it produces more accurate color than that of nexus which is having blue cast in it. i compared with larger photo and redmi is way sharper with lesser noise. good job with redmi.
