Galaxy M32 vs POCO M3 Pro 5G vs Redmi Note 10S vs Narzo 30


There is never a dull moment in the Indian smartphone industry… especially the affordable segment, where new devices are launched at the speed of knots. In fact, over the past month or so, the sub Rs 15K price range has been filled with a slew of tempting offerings, including the Redmi Note 10S (review), the POCO M3 Pro 5G (review), the Samsung Galaxy M32 (review), and the Realme Narzo 30 (review).

Now all of the aforementioned handsets have powerful camera setups, so we decided to pit the four against each other to see which one is best suited for budding photographers. To make things even more interesting, our gladiators compete for your votes in a blind camera comparison – that’s right, the winner of this competition is determined solely by our readers. In addition, we don’t tell you which photo was taken with which phone, which makes the competition much more transparent and interesting. So sit back, browse the photos and cast your vote. We’ll be announcing the winner the third week of July, so check back to see which phone has collected the most reader votes!

HDR off

Let’s start with a shot of the smartphone’s four primary camera sensors. In this scenario, we chose to click a photo with HDR mode turned off. As with our previous blind camera comparisons, the photo was taken in a park during the day with plenty of light nearby. Therefore, pay close attention to the colors in the photo, but also to the details around the center and corners of the frame. We also want to point out that it was very sunny outside when we took the picture, so you should also be aware of mismanaged exposure controls.

HDR On

In the second scenario, we captured the same image with HDR mode enabled. As a result, the photos should offer better dynamic range, so look for the image with the best details in the shadows or dark areas of the photo. You should also consider the colors in the frame, especially the green in the leaves and the blue hue of the sky, as HDR mode tends to bring out the saturation in the shot as well.

Portrait mode

Of course, buyers who opt for one of these handsets will no doubt click on photos of human subjects as well. In that regard, you are now tasked with reviewing the portrait mode shots of the rear cameras on the phone. Note which photo provided the cleanest blur effect around the subject. Also pay attention to the colors in the shot, as most affordable phones struggle to get the skin tones of human subjects right.

Night Mode Off

There will be times when you have to click pictures after the sun has set. So in this scenario we will test which phone takes the best picture in the dark. As with our previous comparisons, we’ll be testing the shots taken with the Night Mode feature turned on separately, which will help you better understand the raw image capabilities of the contenders. Find here the photo with the most detail and the least noise in the dark parts of the composition. You should also see which photo has the least lens flare from light sources, such as a lamppost.

Night Mode On

When night mode is on, you can distinguish the objects in the frame much better. Like the previous category, look for the photo with the least noise and the best detail.

selfie

Our four contenders are also packed with capable front-facing cameras. However, only one of the four can be crowned the winner in this category as well, so look for selfies with authentic skin tones and the least skin smoothing. While we’ve disabled all beautification features, most affordable phones tend to fine-tune the details on a subject’s face.

Selfie in low light

You may also want to click the selfies at night, so this category tests the capabilities of our contenders in a simulated low-light scenario.
