Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 camera samples: a day tour of Beijing

26 October 2018
We tested the main 12MP camera, the telephoto camera, the AI processing and snapped a couple of selfies too.

Why no one tests these phones with gcam mod this is a real mystery!

Great hardware... great price... mediocre software...

This is Xiaomi... best on their market... not like other Chinese company "Huaw.." cheaters :D

The most amazing function of the cameras on this phone is that they can edit out the smog in Beijing and make it look like the air is clear!

If you don't like it then keep faces away from edges, face the camera directly, and stretch your arms as far as possible before taking your shot.

I saw some samples said to be shot on the Mix3 but with a ported GCam with night mode enabled, the results were far superior to the stock night mode offered by Xiaomi.
Again some very impressive software from Google.

ok, 27 Oct 2018guys why are this photo so bad?? Detail unseen to stable photo ... moreMany shots are overexposed, details preservation isn't great, colours aren't very accurate etc. But it's very good phone for the price I guess. Perhaps, I can buy near new Galaxy S9 for cheaper than that right now in my country.

The quality of photos from this phone aren't much better than what is coming from my "oldie" Galaxy S8. Not impressed. Pre-historic Pixel 1 still really does better job.

Looks like the AI has been improved quite significantly, it mostly plays with dynamic range instead of saturation now, which is good but questioning the function of HDR.

Poor HDR handling. Another mediocre camera from Xiaomi flagship. Nothing much to see. Move on.
