Camera Verdict

After comparing all the pictures, we realized that none of the cameras can be called poor looking at the price they come for. But if you ask which one is better overall, we have mixed opinion about both.

Looking at the pictures in indoor artificial lights, we found that the details were more crisp on Honor 5c whereas the colors were looking better on Le 2. Honor 5C showed a blue tint which took the color tone a little off from original.

In outdoors and low light conditions, Honor 5C took the lead with better details and more striking colors. The grains and noise were a little extra on the shots taken from Le 2. Whereas the Honor 5C captured good amount of light and the pictures looked more clear.
