Today we will compare the latest smartphones which are full of competitive under the price of $200. They are Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Meizu M3 Note and Letv LeEco Le 2, although they have a little difference in their price. But they all have RAM 3GB ROM 64GB. So we will make comparison about their camera first.
Meizu M3 Note has 13MP back camera, f/2.2 aperture, but Redmi Note 3 and Le 2 both have 16MP back camera, f/2.0 aperture. By the way, Meizu M3 note has larger wide viewing angle than other two smartphones which will influence the analysis.
This three smartphones are the latest version. The focus point is all in the central of the picture in automatic mode. We choose the sample in automatic and night mode in the dim light.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge joined the test, it runs Android6.0 OS. Its white balance seems a little warm and yellow, the testing light try to imitate what we see in our naked eyes. The color saturation looks a little high by sharpening processing with nice analyst. But in the dim light, it shows white pixels obviously.
This three smartphones have PDAF, but no HDR and night mode. So their ultimate focus speed is slower but no big gap. But pre-focus speed has obvious gap compared with different gap.
Their shutter responses fast, processing speed of HDR and night scene is normal, Le 2 performs slower. But in the weak light, the speed and focus rate will have something wrong, which need to be improved a lot.
HDR and Panoramic Mode
Meizu M3 Note Auto Mode Meizu M3 note HDR mode
Xiaomi Redmi note 3 Auto Mode Xiaomi Redmi note 3 note HDR mode
Letv LeEco Le 2 Auto Mode Letv LeEco Le 2 HDR mode
Xiaomi redmi note 3 and Meizu M3 note in HDR mode will cause white balance or metering deviation problem. The edge of the object will have fuzzy phenomenon problem to affect its analysis. In the test, HDR problem of Redmi note 3 is more serious than that of Meizu M3 note. But Le 2 is better, although the contrast degree has been down, there is no shadow to appear in the sample.
In Panoramic Mode, Xiaomi Redmi note 3 only has 150 degree picture rotating angle, and only 2200*800 screen resolution, and 350KB, the availability is very low.
Le 2 has 270 degree picture rotating angle, and 10528*2416 screen resolution, 6.6MB large. The analysis is the best one in this three smartphones. The brightness looks good.
Meizu M3 Note has over 360 degree picture rotating angle, 13440*2404 screen resolution, but only 4.29MB large, the compression ratio is too big which affects the sample analyst a lot, but its brightness performs well.
But Galaxy S6 Edge has almost 400 degree picture rotating angle, 19152*2816 screen resolution, and 17.6MB large. It is similar to other three smartphone in brightness, but the analyst looks very obvious.

Dim Light Samples
Three smartphones has difference in picture rotating angle, Redmi note 3 has darker light, and brighter color, white balance has obvious green partial, the green saturation is obviously high because of white balance problem, so it will be better to take the pictures outside. It has sharpening algorithm, and daylight analyst performs excellently, which is similar to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, but the details pixels control badly.
In the light and complex environment, the white balance is not stable, the anti-glare and anti-fog effect are good, but there will occur the light dots in the strong light. It will affect the analyst under the dim light. If the light is weaker than the indoor, the sample is useless.
The Le 2 light is brighter than what we see, looks more natural, but the white balance has obvious yellow tendency, we can’t see sharpening problem, but it has obvious pixels clearing phenomenon, which has no more obvious pixels than Redmi note 3. So its analyst has become weaker.
After the light becomes dimmer, Le 2 performs best, not only over Redmi note 3, but also with more accurate white balance. The saturation maintains normally, the picture light seems a little darker. Its analyst keeps complete but the pixels control best than Meizu m3 note and Redmi note 3. So the performance is the best, but the shortcoming is the anti-glare of lens which shows normally, when it faces the strong light, it will give way a big circle radioactive rays.
Therefore, Letv LeEco Le 2 is the best one in taking pictures than Meizu M3 note and Redmi note 3. The software algorithm performs significantly more attentively.
