honor 5X Smartphone Review Rev. 2.0

Page 4 : honor 5X Camera & Video Recording Performance

Camera Performance – Photos

The honor 5X’s main camera has a 13 MP sensor with a fast f/2.0 lens, which allows it to take pretty decent photos in relatively low-light conditions. The photos have a maximum resolution of 4160 x 3120 in the 4:3 format.

honor did not reveal what sensor was used in the honor 5X (Amazon) smartphone, but the pictures we took look like they came from the same Samsung ISOCELL S5K3M2 sensor used in Alcatel Flash 2 smartphone.

The Samsung ISOCELL S5K3M2 is a relatively noisy sensor. If you blow up the picture on a desktop, you can see consistent noise (speckling and artifacts). However, they are only of real concern if you are going to make large prints of these photos.

Camera Performance – Video Recording

The honor 5X (Amazon) can record full HD (1080p) videos. You won’t get any image stabilisation, both optical and electronic, though. Here is a sample video we recorded of a piano performance by Mr. Yang I-Deun.

And this is a sample video taken at an ice skating rink.

The honor 5X (Amazon) did a reasonably good job of controlling the exposure of the subjects in focus, although the bright areas were overexposed. Overall, it was a decent performance for a smartphone at this price point.
