The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is scheduled to be officially announced today (25), but the device has already been showing good changes since its previous generation, even when compared to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. However, the question is: can this device surpass the market tops of the market, such as Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS Max? Seeing the result of the analysis made by the site DxOMark, we can have a notion of the differential that the cameras of Mi Mix 3 will bring to the mobile market. It is worth remembering that the images are captured in the automatic mode, for this reason, it may be that the device has an even higher quality in a manual configuration.Despite all the efforts of companies in recent months, not even the future launch of Xiaomi has managed to outperform the absolute leader Huawei P20 Pro, showing that even after several months that their analysis was performed, it remains with the best cameras in the mobile market world.
The rear cameras of the Mi Mix 3 bring modest configurations in numbers, counting with 12 MP in the main lens, that is great eels. Its aperture is f / 1.8 and features optical image stabilization in addition to a 1 / 2.55 “sensor. The secondary camera works with up to 2x zoom in f / 2.4 aperture. upon images captured in low-light locations, the smartphone features dual LED flash.
According to the tests performed, the device is a great option for anyone looking for a product to take quality photographs, especially if you take into account the fact that it has the same photographic hardware as the Mi 8. However, some results are better because of the optimizations made in the software, causing it to achieve incredible image results in different environments.
With a score of 103 in the overall ranking, the result was obtained from a mean between the values obtained with photo and video. In images, he achieved 108 points, while in the videos the reach reached only 93 points. The value made the device dock with Galaxy Note 9 and HTC U12 Plus.
For still images, it can capture great-quality photos in different situations, showing that photo optimizations are not just data to leverage sales. Those who habitually photograph outdoors will have a pleasant surprise in their captures. Offering a good balance of white and realistic colors, Mi Mix 3 can deliver images with good saturation, making even more difficult-to-precise colors, such as the blue of the sky and the green part of some plants, accurately portrayed.
When using dual LED flash in dimly lit environments, it is possible to observe that the photo can have good detail captured and an acceptable noise balance for the situation presented. Although a good balance between colors and white balance does not disappoint, a downside is the redness in the eyes, something that is noticeable at first glance and can be annoying on images made when using the double flash.
The tests performed by DxOMark showed that the device can achieve very good accuracy in different situations, and Mi Mix 3 did not miss the moment of focusing on any image, giving the expected clarity in the photos captured by the device.
Against the light
In images made in environments against the light, such as a window, Mi Mix 3 can strike a good balance between the exposure of the photographed object and the one in the background. However, the Huawei P20 Pro can achieve a more accurate capture of the sky, even if the main object is not as bright as the Xiaomi device. Already the iPhone X leaves everything that is in extremely high burst plan, showing inferiority to the Mi Mix 3.
The work that Xiaomi has done to improve the photographic quality of its handsets in 2018, especially in the tops of line, has given a positive result. Even coming equipped with Mi 8 hardware, Mi Mix 3 is able to offer the user an even more complete device, delivering great captures in different lighting situations, but highlighting the fact that low light filming has a higher quality than expected, making it a great balance for photo and video.
