Xiaomi released Mi4 in Beijing

Every year , Xiaomi introduces new smartphones in the annual events and this year it’s turn to Mi 4.

Mi4

Let’s check with the specs first:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz processor
  • 3GB LP-DDR3 RAM
  • 16/64GB eMMC 5.0
  • 5-inch 1080p Sharp / JDI OGS full lamination display
  • 13MP rear and 8MP front Sony stacked CMOS camera

A little talk about cameras in smartphones

Nowadays I found a lot of people have many expectations on the shooting quality of their cameras on the smartphones and thus, most smartphone makers from Apple to Samsung, HTC and even start-up companies in China like Xiaomi are always advertising how good their smartphones can make photos.

Actually we can’t expect too much on that. Let me simply explain it.

The picture quality of a smartphone’s camera highly depends on 3 elements :
