The Mi Note 3 features same dual rear camera setup also found on company’s flagship Mi 6 smartphone. It sports dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with one wide-angle lens and another telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom. The primary 12-megapixel sensor has f/1.8 aperture, and has a pixel width of 1.25 microns. It features phase-detection autofocus, dual-tone LED flash and supports 4K video recording at 30fps.

On DxOMark testing, the Mi Note 3 got an overall score of 90, and photo and video sub-score of 94 and 82 respectively. It has been found to have fast and accurate auto-focus with generally accurate exposure. Its zoom capabilities and bokeh effect is also being appreciated by reviewers at DxOMark.

However, the lack of optical image stabilization seems to be hurting the camera in low-light conditions. DxOMark notes that the finer details are lost in low light with visible color cast. The handset also exhibits visible noises in shadow areas in bright light conditions.

Video recording is not seen as one of the assets of Mi Note 3 with DxOMark saying it registers ‘low detail in all conditions’. Its fast auto-focus, reliable exposure and accurate white balance count despite visible frame drops.

While Chinese smartphone makers have managed to match the likes of Apple and Samsung in terms of hardware design and build quality, they are yet to deliver camera performance that stand against flagship devices from Apple, Samsung or Google. Except Huawei, which is getting technical help from Leica, all other Chinese smartphone makers offer latest sensors on their phones but they often result in decent or sub-par image quality.

Ahead of the launch of OnePlus 5, OnePlus tied up with DxOMark to improve the camera performance of its flagship device. While results are good for its price, it doesn’t match that of more premium flagship smartphones.

With DxOMark score of 90, Xiaomi has matched Google Pixel, HTC U11, and has even toppled iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7 and OnePlus 5. However, it is far behind the likes of Google Pixel 2 and Apple iPhone X’s overall score of 98 and 97 respectively. For Xiaomi and other Chinese smartphone makers, the elusive goal would be to either match or better its American and Korean rivals in the camera department.
