Doogee have been ensuring that we all know the Doogee F3 will sport a Samsung 3M2 sensor, with PDAF, but what are the benefits of such a camera?
PDAF or Phase Detection Auto Focus, is a feature that many new phones are coming with, but still a lot of customers aren’t really sure what benefit the feature gives when taking photos.
If you want to get complicated and go in to all the details this link will help you with all the features of PDAF, but what it means for us is super fast auto focus. Not just fast though but accurate as well. PDAF is very well suited to smartphone camera as they are often used for those on the spot, unexpected photo ops.
As a comparison Doogee have shot a video comparing the autofocus time of their Doogee F3 with Samsung S5K3M2XXM3 sensor (the same seniors as the Vivo X5 Pro, Oppo R7 and Nubia Prague) to the focus speed of the iPhone 6, Huawei P8 and Meizu (the phone is labeled as an MX4 but we believe it is an MX5).
Doogee claims that the F3 focus can be as fast as 0.1 seconds making the 13 mega-pixel shooter on the phone perfect for last minute photos and action photography. Doogee will be launching the F3 later in the month with pricing from $149.99 rising to $169.99.
