Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi’s latest phone Redmi Note 3 ( 11,999) has a lot going for it in terms of build quality, performance, display and camera. In turn, Indian smartphone maker Micromax looks at home, with its Canvas 6 Pro ( 13,999) offering an equally brilliant display, dependable performance and clutter-free interface.

The Redmi Note 3 packs in a 16-megapixel OmniVision sensor backed by dual LED flash. The Phase Detection auto focus feature allows it to lock focus in less than a second. The key highlight is the numerous modes, filters and shortcut features it offers. The Micromax Canvas 6 Pro has a 13-megapixel camera with 6P Largan lens hardware. It offers limited number of filters, but can deliver some really good shots during daytime.

We tested the two phone cameras in different conditions to see how each fares, in terms of photo quality.

Reading material

All these books stacked on the table show that the two cameras have different strengths. The Redmi Note 3’s photo reproduces slightly more vibrant colours, and a tad bit more crispness. The Canvas 6 Pro’s camera, on the other hand, has more accurate colours, the photo is a tad better in terms of some aspects of detailing and the image processing algorithm does make text easy to read.

Winner: Micromax Canvas 6 Pro

Blooming flowers

This is a close-up shot of a marigold flower. The Redmi Note exhibits better depth of field capabilities, thereby increasing the focus on the flower while relegating the background quite smoothly. Also, the detailing is excellent, including the green colour on the sepal area. The Canvas 6 Pro has reproduced the yellow/orangish tint of the flower petals well, though it isn’t as proficient with the green colour. The Redmi Note 3 clearly has an edge in terms of focus and getting all colours right.

Street smart

The Redmi Note 3 handles the colours better, as well as the detailing of the billboards and the yellow and black alternate pavement colour. Between the two cameras, the Redmi Note 3’s photo is better exposed as well, while the Canvas 6 pro is struggling a bit in terms of low contrast.

Monument in evening

This is a late evening photograph, and the Redmi Note 3’s camera has handled the colour patterns of the stone a bit better than the Canvas 6 Pro. However, the steps heading down look better distinguished in the Canvas 6 Pro’s photograph.

Winner: Too close to call

It is not a real person!

This shot was taken in warm ambient light indoors, and the noise is considerably higher in the case of Canvas 6 Pro’s photo. While detailing is fairly similar for the most part, the Redmi Note 3 has handled colours better, including the more precise shades of green, red and saffron.
