While the iPhone 7 Plus is considered to be one of the fastest smartphones of 2016, it is also praised for its camera performance, specifically its dual 12 MP rear camera setup.
On the other hand, we have the Nokia 6. This smartphone has been a highly anticipated device after Nokia has been freed from its contract deal with Microsoft and was bought by HMD. Does its camera specs have what it takes to match the iPhone 7 Plus' cameras?
Camera Specs Of Both Devices
The iPhone 7 Plus features a dual 12 MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a quad-LED (dual tone) flash, phase detection autofocus, and 2x optical zoom. It is capable of shooting 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps and 720p@240fps.
At the front, it has a 7 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.2, face detection, HDR, panorama, and can shoot 1080@30fps and 720@240fps.
The Nokia 6 has a 16 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. It shoots 1080p@30fps.
On the front, it features a 8 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0. Just like its rear camera, it also shoots 1080p.
Front Camera Daylight Shots
For this test, the Nokia 6 had great details, but its colors were a little bit washed out and the selfie taken was crazily bright. On the other hand, the photos taken by the iPhone 7 Plus had vibrant colors, good brightness and also had great details.
Rear Camera Daylight Shots
For this test, both smartphone cameras had amazing attention to details. However, there was something worth noting. In most cases, the iPhone 7 Plus' photos were brighter and more colorful, but there are times that that brightness it has sabotages the colors and make it look a little bit less appealing. Try watching the video provided below, you will notice it (specifically on the part where it featured the champagne bottles and the red flower).
Artificial Light And Low Light Conditions
For this artificial light test, the pictures taken by each smartphone had noise, but the iPhone 7 Plus had less. And for the low light conditions test, it produced the same results, but the noise was more visible.
Based on the information gathered, it is clear that the iPhone 7 Plus has a better camera performance. As for the Nokia 6, it is really surprising that despite being a mid-range smartphone, its cameras perform rather well. This is truly a good start from Nokia.
