Who says mid-range phones don’t have good camera performance? These four models are quite good and can still hold their own in terms of performance

These four mid-range phones have good camera performance and hold their own in terms of overall performance

【phoneauto Shopping Guide】Previously, mid-range phones have always been described as “underdeveloped” because they couldn’t take everything into account. For example, many high cost-effective models focus on performance but neglect imaging, resulting in many people saying that the camera quality of mid-range phones is only on par with scanning QR codes. However, this phenomenon has changed since the beginning of this year. Major smartphone manufacturers have started to delve into imaging and have made great progress in this area.

Who said mid-range phones can’t take good pictures? These four models are not bad.

The reason why smartphone imaging has made great progress is that more and more domestic smartphone manufacturers have realized that, unlike other hardware configurations, taking good photos with a phone cannot be achieved solely by piling up camera parameters. It also requires the driving force of deep software algorithms and other imaging technologies, which is also the key to reflecting the differentiation and competitiveness of different brands and products.

However, because more and more smartphone manufacturers frequently launch models that specialize in imaging, many consumers who are not familiar with smartphone configurations are confused and don’t know how to choose.

But there is no need to worry too much. Today, phoneauto will recommend four models with outstanding imaging capabilities. They are OPPO K11, Honor 90, realme 11 Pro+, and Xiaomi Civi 3. If you think these four models are only good at imaging, then you are completely wrong. They also perform well in other aspects. Keep reading and you will understand.

Recently, OPPO held a new product launch event and officially released its new K series product – OPPO K11. The official statement is that OPPO K11 provides flagship-level imaging experience for 500 million mid-range smartphone users.

OPPO K11

In order to allow mid-range products to have flagship-level imaging experience, OPPO K11 uses the high-end imaging flagship OPPO Find X6’s 50 million pixel main sensor – Sony IMX890, with a 1/1.56-inch photosensitive area and supports OIS optical image stabilization. It has a more stable shooting ability in capturing and low-light environments, making the shooting picture clearer.

In addition to flagship-level imaging hardware, OPPO K11 also inherits three flagship imaging algorithm engines: natural portrait bokeh engine, dynamic snapshot engine, and ultra-clear image quality engine, comprehensively upgrading the shooting experience of portrait, snapshot, and night scene. Among them, the natural portrait bokeh engine can help users easily shoot DSLR-level portrait masterpieces; the dynamic snapshot engine can greatly improve the success rate of capturing in complex environments, making the captured picture clearer; the ultra-clear image quality engine can effectively reduce the image noise when shooting night scenes, making the night scene shooting purer and clearer.

OPPO K11

In addition to imaging, OPPO K11 also performs well in battery life and performance. In terms of battery life, the new phone is equipped with a 5000mAh battery and supports the long-life version of 100W super flash charging. It can charge the battery from 1% to 100% in as fast as 26 minutes. According to official information, 5 minutes of charging can support watching short videos for 3.14 hours.

In terms of performance, OPPO K11 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G mobile platform, which adopts the TSMC 6nm flagship process technology, and the maximum core frequency is up to 2.7GHz; it provides a 12GB+512GB version.

Those who follow the mobile phone industry should be well aware that imaging has always been a strong suit of the Honor digital series. As the latest masterpiece of the Honor digital series, the Honor 90 particularly stands out in terms of imaging.

Honor 90

The Honor 90 features a 200 million pixel ultra-clear main camera, a 12 million pixel ultra-wide-angle macro lens, and a 2 million pixel independent depth of field lens, making it a flagship-level imaging system. It is worth mentioning that the 200 million ultra-high pixel main camera has a 1/1.4-inch ultra-large sensor, with an equivalent pixel size of 2.24μm, which is unprecedented in the same price range. Thanks to its excellent sensitivity and restoration capabilities, the Honor 90 can easily meet various shooting needs in different scenarios.

Not only that, the Honor 90 is equipped with the “portrait engine”, which brings studio-level, SLR-level, and micrometer-level portrait experiences, restoring more details and making portraits more realistic. In addition, the Honor 90 has a 50 million pixel front-facing portrait lens, which can easily meet the selfie needs of contemporary young people.

Honor 90

In terms of configuration, the Honor 90 is equipped with the first-generation Snapdragon 7 (enhanced version) mobile platform, which adopts a 4nm flagship-level process, with lower power consumption and stronger performance. According to official information, in tests of large-scale mobile games such as “King of Glory” and “Peace Elite”, the Honor 90 can run smoothly and steadily, with high frame rates and no lag, easily meeting daily entertainment needs. In addition, the device is equipped with the Honor GPU Turbo X optimization technology, which can achieve better chip call logic and fully unleash performance.

It is worth mentioning that the Honor 90 adopts the floating streamline four-curve fitting technology and is equipped with a “zero-risk dimming eye protection screen”. It is the world’s first industry-leading 3840Hz ultra-high-frequency PWM dimming and has obtained TUV Rheinland’s non-flicker certification, carefully protecting the eye health of users.

The last model I recommend to everyone is the Xiaomi Civi 3. This phone has two front lenses, including a 78° beauty lens and a 100° ultra-wide-angle lens. Among them, the 78° beauty lens has an equivalent focal length of about 26mm, which can reduce distortion. It uses an F2.0 large aperture and flagship ALD ultra-low reflection coating, ensuring sufficient light intake and reducing lens glare. In addition, the phone is equipped with four multi-color temperature soft lights on the front, suitable for various styles of atmospheric portrait photography.

Xiaomi Civi 3

As for the rear camera, the Xiaomi Civi 3 uses the same ultra-clear and ultra-stable main camera as the Xiaomi 13, equipped with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX800 main camera, supporting OIS optical image stabilization and 2x lossless zoom. It is accompanied by an 8-megapixel IMX355 120° ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel 4cm macro lens, which can meet various daily shooting needs.

Xiaomi Civi 3

In other aspects, the Xiaomi Civi 3 is equipped with a 6.55-inch flexible AMOLED screen, supporting a 120Hz refresh rate. It uses C6 luminescent material and has a peak brightness of 1500nit, allowing the screen to be visible even under sunlight. It also supports Dolby Vision, HDR10+, 12-bit color depth, 1.6 million-level automatic brightness adjustment, and 1920Hz PWM dimming. It has a built-in 4500mAh battery and supports 67W flash charging. It is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8200-Ultra chip, using TSMC’s 4nm process.
