Gionee Elife E8 Camera Hardware

If we recap, Gionee has been great with the cameras on their phones. The expectations were already high with this device, it is claimed to be the best till date by the manufacturer. This phone offers dominant camera specs on paper, the 24 MP camera uses an OmniVision OV23850 1/2.3 inch sensor with f/2.0 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization to help you make steady videos and avoid shakes,  and Phase Detection autofocus claimed to be as quick as 0.08 seconds. The dual-tone LED flash is located on the left of the camera which helps to capture realistic colour details using the different tones in low light. The front camera is 8 MP with wide angle lens.

This hardware is blended with a combination of powerful features and claims to produce images up to 120 MP in resolution. You can zoom into the shot without losing the details up to 3X, and it can also record 4K videos at 30 fps with no trouble. Moreover, it carries a physical camera shutter to serve you with a camera-like experience.

Camera Software And Modes

The camera UI is not a very fancy one, it makes it quite easy to use. The screen is void of irrelevant icons, and toggle buttons are placed on the left and right sides in a very neat and structured manner deducting the fuss while clicking a picture.

A whole lot of shooting modes can be found in the camera settings; it includes face beauty, professional (lets you adjust the WB, Exposure, ISO, Focus and Shutter), Ultra Pixel (takes the 100 MP shots), magic focus and many more of them are available to satisfy the creativity aspect, especially if you love playing with cameras. Other camera features include Geo-tagging, face/smile detections, HDR and Panorama. We will update you with more in-depth details about the camera software really soon.

Competition

The Gionee Elife E8 impresses with the performance. Like the recently released Motorola Moto X Play and Lenovo Vibe Shot which carry a mighty camera, Gionee has also met the expectations.

Camera Performance

The autofocus on the phone is noticeably quicker, when we tried taking a picture in good lighting condition, it just started focusing on to the object the moment we took it in the frame. Camera is great at capturing details in almost every possible condition. Whereas the camera is good in colour reproduction and clarity as well.

The 8 MP front camera is decent at performance, handles light composedly and compliments the primary snapper nicely and more over its auto focus camera on the front. The natural light selfies can impress the users, but as the lights drop off you could notice visible grains in the photo. Overall performance was quite impressive but this is just the initial camera overview, we will soon update you with the thorough camera review of Elife E8.
