Camera Hardware

Lenovo K4 Note features a 13 MP rear Isocell camera with Phase detection Auto Focus and Dual color LED flash. the Phase Detection technology helps the camera to lock the focus quickly depending on whether the subject is in phase or out of phase. The rear shooter comes with an aperture of F/2.2 which will enhance the shooting capabilities.

On the front there is a fixed focus 5 MP camera for capturing selfies and video chats. This combination of 13 MP and 5 MP has become the trademark of the current mid range segment with almost all budget smartphones sporting the same 13 MP and 5 MP camera combination with a few exceptions.

Camera UI

Camera Ui is little bit different from what we have seen earlier on other Lenovo smartphones in the past. It seems like Lenovo has reduced the shooting modes on this camera that were earlier part of the arsenal on earlier Lenovo smartphones. The camera UI is very simple with well placed controls and you can swipe between photo and video shooting modes without breaking a sweat. The UI is fast, smooth and works flawlessly without any hassle.

Camera Performance

The images that we clicked using this smartphone indicates that the camera on this smartphone is one of the best if not the best that we have seen so far on budget smartphones in the same price bracket. Despite all the good and awesomeness packed into this smartphone there are some shortcomings with the camera module that we observed.

The shutter speed in HDR mode was a little slow and this is not much of a flaw but we observed this. The images in low lighting conditions come out be very good looking with ample details and noise free but refresh rate was not that great. The front camera works just fine and clicks descent selfies without any issues so far. But if you are one of those smartphone photographers who love to take huge amount of photos with their phones then you will be a little bit disappointed. Other than that it works just fine and clicks clear and vibrant images which you can see above.

Conclusion

The camera on K4 Note performs well and is on par with the camera performance of other smartphones in this price range. We will reserve our final comments about this camera module as the lighting conditions at the launch venue were not poor. Image quality in low light is satisfactory and you will enjoying shooting with it if you are okay to keep your hand still for extra seconds it takes for processing.
