Budget smartphones are some of the most important mobile devices in the market, given the fact that these provides customers decent specs and features at affordable prices. Recently, the Nokia 6 was released in China, and it promises to be one of the greatest of this kind, thanks especially to an outstanding camera that would definitely meet customers´ expectations. In order to prove its quality, here´s a little comparison with the camera of the OnePlus 3T, the mobile device considered as the best budget smartphone of 2016.

The Nokia 6 And The OnePlus 3T Shares Similarities In Camera Performance

First of all, let´s say that the Nokia 16 MP sports a 16 MP rear-facing shooter and an outstanding 8MP front-facing snapper, which makes this mobile device good enough to shoot smart and crisp photos. Also, the camera´s capabilities are one of the greatest that you can find in any budget smartphone, given the fact that it offers a 1-pixel size, dual-LED flash, FHD recording (1080p at 30fps) video recording and Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF).

On the other hand, the incredible OnePlus 3T has practically the same 16MP primary camera as the Nokia 6, but this one has a Sony IMX 29 sensor. In fact, the Chinese mobile device also has the PDAF support, and offers an aperture of f/2.0, being better than the Finnish mobile device on the front camera, thanks on the pixel count alone, since it has a 16MP selfie snapper that is equipped with the Samsung 3P8Sp sensor and an aperture of f/1.0. In fact, the OnePlus 3T provides 4K video recording at 30 fps, which is actually better than the 1080p that the Nokia 6 offers.

Nokia 6 vs OnePlus 3T: Long-Range Photography And Night Mode

Another important detail in which is necessary to compare the cameras of the Nokia 6 and the OnePlus 3T is the long-range photography, given the fact that in this filed the Finnish budget smartphone has a much clearer focusing mechanism than the Chinese, but this one offers a clearer image when zooming, considering that the Nokia 6 has a slight dullness in the image when zoomed in.

Finally, is obvious that in the Night mode field, OnePlus 3T´s photos are impossible to beat, thanks to the incredible efforts that the Chinese company put in this area. However, even when it can´t excel it, the Nokia 6 has an almost perfect shot in low light, which represent a great offer for customers that wants to buy latest budget smartphone that shows an outstanding performance in this field.

Given this analysis, there´s two possible results depending on how you look at it: on one hand, it can be said that the OnePlus 3T beats the Nokia 6 in the camera field. On the other, it can also be said that the first budget smartphone released by Nokia in its highly expected return, sports a camera whose greatness is close to the one of the greatest budget smartphone in 2016.
