This Pogo F3 offers 3 volumes in its photo gallery, but only two will interest us here. The main volume is 48 megapixels and the ultra wide-angle volume is 8 megapixels. Very classic configuration, especially seen and reviewed on the Redmi Note 9D5G or the latest Redmi Note 10 5G, but it gives different results here.
By default, this Pogo F3 captures 12 megapixel displays Pixel-pinning. The full definition is at 48 megapixels and allows you to get a result that is very different from the default definition.
It is during the day that we see the biggest difference. At 12 megapixels, with crushed details, if the photo is not too contrasting. At 48 megapixels, the smartphone delivers a more detailed, less contrasting shot for a more natural finish.
At night, though the picture is 12 or 48 megapixels, we are no different. The software processing smoothes the photo in both cases, the color loss is obvious, as there are discolorations in some places.
Facing the Google Pixel 4a – the best photophone under 350 – the Poco F3 looks bad. The image provided by Google’s smartphone is full of details, the expression is very perfect and the color rendering is very natural.
At night, it’s irrelevant: Google’s simplicity in providing a night shot does not prove to be as good as daylight. At this level, no competitor in the same category can do better, or even better. However, despite being very smooth, the night shot of the Pogo F3 benefits from a good exposure, which allows you to see the whole scene.
Ultra wide-angle module
Since the Pixel 4A does not have an ultra wide-angle module, we chose to compare it with the Samsung Galaxy A32. Day by day, the Pogo F3 works better, especially thanks to a software treatment that is much less rigorous, less sensitive and slightly more comprehensive than the smartphone coming from Samsung.
At night, the shots are loud, but the Poco F3 offers better expression.
Front module, portrait and video mode
On the front, the Pogo F3 gets a 20-megapixel volume with an f / 2.5 aperture – which is rare enough to be stressed. The quality is very good, the expression is perfect, even if the colors are a little compelling. The contrast problem we encounter with the rear main module is not here. Beauty devices were enabled by default; So it is necessary to be careful not to crash them so as not to end up with the face recovered by the software.
The portrait does not shine in mode and cannot cut a person properly. Background blur is very mandatory in some places, when it is simply not present. Unfortunately, this is a decision that is not very confident with the pre-placed volume.
According to the video, the Poco F3 can shoot at a maximum of 4K at 30 fps. It can shoot 1080p up to 960 fps. No optical stabilization, but an electronic version to control tremors.
