Both Asus Zenfone 2 and Lenovo K3 Note are new desirable Android smartphones offering high-end features for not a lot of price. You could find now these two in local and online markets.
The same number of solid megapixels but different quality, that’s what you will find between the Asus Zenfone 2 and Lenovo K3 Note. But will the two give the same camera standard? If not then which phone takes a better picture? Find the answer below.
Still at well-lit
What do you get with a 13 megapixels sensor? Tons of pixels to fill an image. You can get as high up to 4K image resolution in 16:9 aspect ratio or a 1080p movie @30fps, the same applies for both smartphones.
In our actual test each exhibits different color and sharpness. By looking at the pictures it is hard to classify which phone produces more realistic results. But with a closer look we found that Zenfone 2 slightly edges the K3 Note in three departments: brightness, sharpness and color accuracy.
There’s visibly a bit of reddish tint on K3 Note, but its contrast and smoothness seems to work fairly on screen. So I guess I leave this part for you to decide on which one do you prefer — the smooth or the sharp shooter.
Both phones offer 5MP front-facing camera without flash. In this scene it’s hard to tell which red is truer. The K3 Note projects a pinkish red while Zenfone 2‘s red is a bit overcooked.
I guess most of the time people would take a picture without minding the settings, leaving your shot taken in auto mode.
So in this night shot, I left both at auto settings despite each having their own night mode.
If you’ll rely more on your smartphone camera, the choice is simply the Zenfone 2, it’s a sharp shooter that can go as far as those the flagship phones in the market. But if you don’t mind the quality of your pictures then the K3 Note is an alternative. Plus you could save up to few thousand pesos (K3 Note price range at Php8-9k, Zenfone 2 ZE5511ML at Php10-11k).
