Camera Hardware

The camera on Coolpad Note 3 has a 13 MP sensor which is capable of producing high quality photos with a 5P lens and f/2.0 aperture which is considered average for smartphones. Most of the photo enthusiasts mostly go for larger apertures for shallow depth of field in their photos; it helps in capturing fast action shots. The front camera is 5 MP.

The primary camera setup is capable of recording 1080p high definition videos and slow motion videos too. This is a fair configuration if we look at the price they come at.

Camera UI

The camera UI is good in terms of button placement and usability, the viewfinder stretches over the screen which gives you a good view of your frame. It consists of a very limited amount of on-screen options, limited to only 5 touch inputs including shutter button, gallery, front/back camera toggle, flash on/off and a single icon to browse through different modes. You can also find a drop down arrow which can be pulled down to get access to the camera settings.

It also offers the manual shooting option which makes it stand aside from the other budget phones. Overall, the UI is simple and designed keeping the ease factor at the front.

However we will spend some more time with the device in different imaging conditions and will be using different modes to add more information to our findings.
