Elephone, not a company known for making superior camera phones, have released sample photos taken with their Elephone M3. Check them out.
For regulars of GizChina, you will know Elephone as the brand that gets specs and pricing right, but fails when it comes to the implementation of hardware and design. In the past the phone maker has had some promising phones on paper only to be let down with optimisation issues, but will this be an issue of the past with the Elephone M3?
The Elephone M3 will be the third Elephone device in the ‘M’ range and the model with the highest hardware specification to date.
The $199.99 M3 looks like a premium Oppo phone, and will come with a Mediatek Helio P10 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory, rear fingerprint scanner and Sony IMX230 21 mega-pixel main camera built-in to an all metal body.
We have seen the IMX230 in the Vowney too, but have Elephone done a better job with the camera on the M3 this time around? Take a look at the samples below:
Elephone M3 photo samples
I’d like to get my hands on the M3 and see what the camera performance is like first hand, but already it looks like the phone struggles with over exposure in certain parts of the image.
Looking at the sky the M3 produces a white, washed out image, where as other high-end camera phones would be able to give a more natural blue sky. Again we don’t know just how bright the sun was shining on the day these photos were took so we can’t be 100% sure how the camera performs just yet.
