Vodafone Smart Prime 6 Review - Camera Review

Vodafone Smart Prime 6 – Camera

The rear-facing camera uses an 8-megapixel image sensor, which is par for the course with smartphones these days. That sort of image resolution is fine for uploading photos to social media, and won’t create unwieldy files that eat up all of your storage space. The Smart Prime 6 also has autofocus and an LED flash, which is to be expected.

Photos taken with the Smart Prime 6 look fine on the 5-inch display. But if you zoom in, it’s easy to notice a lack of detail. This worsens significantly in low-light shots. Fortunately, there are manual settings so you can turn HDR on or fiddle with the ISO, although images still aren’t great. It’s a shame the auto mode isn’t more versatile and adaptive.

The camera isn’t entirely bad, though. The Smart Prime 6 takes pictures very quickly, colour accuracy is good, and the interface is simple and clean. Moreover, although you’re unlikely to win any photography awards using Vodafone’s shooter, the images are easily good enough to peddle on Instagram and Facebook. And on a £79 phone, that’s what really counts.
