Bluboo Xfire dukes it out with the iPhone 6 in camera shootout

Can a $50 phone really compare to the iPhone 6 when it comes to camera quality? Bluboo believe so and have put together a camera comparison between the 2 devices.

Being on GizChina means that you have a healthy appreciation of Android and those devices running Google’s mobile OS. This doesn’t mean we are closed minded though, and we can give Apple their dues for the camera performance on the iPhone.

Even before the new iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6 with an 8 mega-pixel sensor was seen by many as the camera phone to beat.

So can Bluboo’s $50 Bluboo Xfire beat the expensive iPhone 6 in a camera shootout? No, of course it can’t but the images from the budget 4G phone are impressive none the less and are proof of how far Chinese camera performance has come over the past 12 months.

Take a look at the camera samples below for comparison (these are the original photos). Left are Bluboo Xfire and right iPhone 6.

The Xfire was recently launched for around $85, but a new deal sees certain stores offer the device for only $49.99. Specs include a 5-inch 960 x 540 display, 8 mega-pixel main camera, 1 GB RAM, Mediatek MT6735M chipset and dual SIM LTE.

    Isn’t it more realistic to put the bluboo against the elephone trunk?

      Probably the same OV camera, just the Trunk is interpolated to 13MP.

      No. It’s more realistic to put Trunk in comparation to iPhone. Had a phone with old 8MP Samsung Sensor (S3) & it’s really decent, actually still have it…
