Sharp fights for the middle shelf

Sound

The single speaker placed on the lower edge is responsible for playing sound, but it does not offer a decent quality. It has a good volume level, but it totally lacks any bass, and with the higher volume some unpleasant buzzing appears. It will not be a problem when you would like to watch a movie, TV series or to play while staying at home – but it will not please its users in any other usage. Especially that there is no simple way to attach earphones – the phone lacks a universal jack. Instead, we have a USB-C socket – supposedly there is an adapter from USB-C to a 3.5mm minijack, but I did not found it in the received package.

For playing music we can use Play Music from Google – the manufacturer did not put an effort to add its own solution, there are no advanced sound settings or an FM radio either.


Photos and video

The main camera consists of two cameras: 12-megapixel with an f/1.75 aperture brightness and 8-megapixel with f/2.0 brightness. The second one is used for the depth measurement. I do not have any major concerns towards photos in good lighting – for the middle-price shelf photos are bright and sharp enough, with a decent focus and dynamics. However, it is worth to take the same shot two or three times, because it happened that in the preview it looked good, but the final effect, after browsing through the gallery, was simply out of focus.

In weaker lighting and at night photos are not that good. Colours are nicely represented, but I must complain about the low level of details, flairs and reflections in photos with strong light sources. It works poorly with close ups and has a tendency to overexpose brighter parts and underexpose darker ones.

The camera offers the bokeh effect (we can control the blurring level) and the background blurring for portraits, in addition we have panoramas and the professional mode, in which we can manually set the photo’s parameters, like the white balance, ISO, shutter's speed, saturation and contrast. Photos are taken in the full screen mode, that is 17:9 ratio by default – we can select a different one in settings, for example 1:1 or a typical 4:3.


Here are photography results:


The front camera has an 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture. Fixed focus is responsible for the sharpness of photos. And here are results of its work:


The video can be recorded in the maximum resolution of Ultra HD with 30 frames per second. The smooth change in exposition, appropriate focus and the good level of details in recordings are advantages. Here are video recording results:
