Lenovo Z6 smartphone has been launched in late July 2018. The smart phone comes with a 6.37-inch touch screen. The phone runs on android operating system and is powered by a large 4000 mAh battery. As far as the camera is concerned, the Lenovo Z6 from rear packs a 16-megasonic shooters with an f/2.4 aperture; a secondary 12-megasonic shooters and a seven-point optical zoom camera. Apart from that, the phone also houses a heart rate monitor, a USB port, a stereo audio jack, an infrared port, a GPS receiver, a speaker grill and other standard features.
After a brief introduction, I will discuss about the phone’s key features and specifications. To begin with, let me tell you about my testing protocol and techniques. This article helps you understand the importance of a smartphone camera’s imaging capabilities. By the time you finish reading this article, you would be able to take high quality images with your Lenovo Z6 pro.
The first thing that I did after buying the handset was to download several mobile photography apps and conduct real-life tests. One such photograph capturing program is the one fromxia demo which was one of the most powerful smartphone camera apps on the Android platform. It allows the user to capture photos in high resolution and uses advanced image processing techniques which delivers rich, brilliant and vivid images. I loaded the images from the demo onto the phone’s memory card and used the built-in camera mode.
The photos from the phone were available in fine format and so I decided to compress them using the flash off option. After the compression, I transferred the images to my PC using WinRar which offered good results (although the fine format photos lack clarity). After finalizing the transfer, I installed the optimized android flash support and ran the camera on my Zonda S. By selecting “stock mode”, the handset performed flawlessly. I was not able to see any difference in sharpness or clarity while shooting the images.
I also tried to check the camera’s white balance performance. A lot of phones allow white balance settings to be adjusted, which can be helpful if you want to use an accurate white balance shot. However, the white balance on the Lenovo Z6 was prone to inaccuracy especially in lower light conditions. I observed uneven color tone in some low-light scenes and even in bright ones. The pictures achieved good color balance but they looked somewhat underexposed and dull.
After evaluating the camera’s performance in both outdoor and indoor environments, I turned my attention to its target exposures. The fact that the Lenovo Z6 uses a new technology called ISolidayer Dot Emulation (ISeatured) made my task easier. The device was able to retain most of the target exposures even when conditions change. This was surprising because most professional smartphone cameras suffer from camera-shake related target exposures.
Using the LCD screen as my monitor, I performed several test photographs in different lighting scenarios. The device showed stable target exposures even in low light modes. It seems that despite having a full-fledged HID torch with xenon flash, the phone managed to capture strong images in both standard and low luminance light scenarios. In addition, it showed good color rendering performance across all types of lighting conditions, even with ambient light.
So if you’re looking for a smartphone camera that offers professional quality photos, the Lenovo Z6 pro should be a top choice. The phone has an intuitive user interface which makes it easy to control settings and use the camera functions. It also comes with an attractive camera bag that incorporates venting for dissipating heat generated by the device. It also features an impressively long battery life, so users won’t have to worry about hunting for power outlets anytime they want to snap photos.
