Compare Apple iPhone 7 vs Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime Camera

You can see the unboxing and review of the new Xiaomi redmi 3s prime here  i just got my iPhone 7 and felt i should do a comparison with a china product.  Xiaomi seems to be the best fit and since xiaomi 3s prime is what i have on ground. so its going to be iphone 7 vs xiaomi redmi 3s prime.

I will do a comparison with Xiaomi M5 next week when my order gets delivered.

My verdict on iphone 7 vs Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime

This is the point where you will expect me to say “this is all a joke” Oh No! it wasn’t a joke even though i will not expect a low budget phone like the xiaomi redmi 3s prime to have a better camera compare to the ‘almighty’ Apple’s iPhone 7 it was worth even comparing.


The iPhone 7 features a completely redesigned camera system with a faster f/1.8 lens (previously f/2.2). The iphone 7 plus even has dual lens with Wide-angle: ƒ/1.8 aperture and a Telephoto: ƒ/2.8 aperture lens with body and face detection.

The Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime has a decent camera at that low price, although you notice flickering on video recording at 1080p and camera doesnt do that great indoor or with artificial lighting. in low light you get noise but can be improved if you turn on the HDR mode.

So to get a very decent picture with the xiaomi redmi 3s prime you will need to take a it in a bright environment.

Note: the Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime can not shoot 4k video
