On the afternoon of June 5, Lenovo held a press conference at the Beijing China Film Director’s Center to formally release the new national flagship, the Lenovo Z5. It’s a water bucket machine. This term has been used by Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun to describe the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 as a smartphone with no obvious shortcomings. This statement is true for the camera as well. It simply means our protagonist provides an excellent shooting performance.
Actually, Lenovo is a veteran of the Chinese smartphone market. Since the time when smartphones began to be popular in the Chinese market, Lenovo phones had already taken root in the domestic market. But Lenovo is not competitive yet. To fix this bug, the company has revised its price policy. Now, it is offering quite an attractive handset at low price tags. The Lenovo Z5 is the best proof. Moreover, there is a trend when smartphones from this price range come with powerful camera modules. The 16MP + 8MP dual-camera of this handset is capable of taking excellent photos. We are going to make sure of it.
The Lenovo Z5’s main camera comes with an aperture of f/2.0. It also uses a Ture3D virtual engine and supports DoF blur. On the front, it carries an 8MP snapper, which is able to capture good photos, with the industry’s well-known rainbow soft algorithm.
The Lenovo Z5’s 16MP sensor can bring more details in comparison to the current mainstream 12MP camera sensors. As we can see in the samples, the photos under the direct sunlight are perfectly reproducing the details. Indoor, the Lenovo Z5 also has sufficient light, which balances the light and darkness.
The dual-camera phones generally have two roles. One is to achieve high-level zoom, and the other is to achieve a background blur effect similar to a large SLR lens. The Lenovo Z5 supports 2x optical zoom.
Apart from this, the phone supports AI portrait mode. We can see the depth of field effect when shooting flowers is stunning. They look like 3D photos. At the same time, the background blur is very natural.
