After usisg ir for three months, have to say the camera is worst than the Nexus 5...

In the normal mode, a lot of white over-exposed areas.

Not good colors in general.

tbh.. the camera is actually pretty nice... it's true that the Auto Mode does a bad job with the exposure (blown highlights..dark photos)... but it's not as bad as people say it is... the HDR Mode can fix the problem faced in Auto Mode.... plus the manual mode is great for low light photography if you know how to use it

Here you can see some of the limitations of the camera:

blown-out sky
This picture was taken in panorama mode of the camera... you can see how the sky is full blown-out
This is a common problem for most cameras out there.


This one was taken in auto mode. | Exposure time: 1/404s | ISO-100


Here is one taken in HDR mode.. fixing the blown-out sky | Exposure time: 1/3070s | ISO-101

Note: the blown-out sky problem can also be fixed by using a polarizing filter.. you can easily buy one online. I haven't had the chance to try one though.

Moreover, I have find out that the dynamic range and metering of the camera is not that good as compared to others.

over-exposed shot
Here, the usual problem... blown-out highlights....

under-exposed
I tried focussing on the bright regions...but the dark areas were completely under-exposed..
The two pictures were taken in Auto mode.


Here is an HDR shot...

As it can be seen the HDR mode doesn't always correct the shot and exposure.
(keep in mind that this is the worse case senario and in typical day-to-day use... the camera will prove to be satisfactory.)



Here are some full resolution photos that I've taken with my phone.

Close-Up Shot | Exposure time: 1/347s | ISO-100
Close-Up Shot | Exposure time: 1/347s | ISO-100



HDR photo | Exposure time: 1/50s | ISO-149
HDR photo | Exposure time: 1/50s | ISO-149



Low light photography (manual mode - handheld) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-400
Low light photography (manual mode - handheld) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-400


Low light photography (manual mode - handheld) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-400
Low light photography (manual mode - handheld) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-400



Low light photography (camera in manual mode - using a tripod) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-200
Low light photography (manual mode - using a tripod) | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-200


Here are some pictures that have been processed:

Moonlit Sky + Nearby street lightings | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-800 (photo was retouched in Lightroom to reduce noises)
Moonlit Sky | Exposure time: 2.0s | ISO-800 (photo was retouched in Lightroom to reduce noises)




panorama made using Lightroom. | Exposure time: 1/17s | ISO-517



multiples images (taken in HDR - using a tripod)  were stitched together using Lightroom to create this panorama

I've been using this phone for about 6-10 months... and I'm pretty much satisfied with it, and it can focus and capture photos quickly which is great if you're a student and regularly need to take lecture notes from your friend.. my gallery is completely filled with lecture notes!
