In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market.
But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough.
DxOMark regarded the smartphone as having good HDR results when the feature is activated, thought at times inconsistent.
Exposure is actually decent when indoors with low-light though there is some visible luminance noise.
Of course, it performed best in bright light, where it exhibited better stabilization and noise reduction.
But, then again, the smartphone is a mid-range device, so it will perform less spectacularly in other aspects.
