Sony Xperia XA1 vs. Huawei P10 Lite: We compared their cameras

Techno 4 May, 2017

The Huawei P10 Lite and the Sony Xperia XA1 are two new mid-range smartphones. To decide between them, we decided to compare their cameras by taking several photos. The result is amazing!
Sony and Huawei launched a few weeks ago new smartphones in the mid-range market: the Xperia XA1 and the P10 Lite . If these two devices have everything to please, it is difficult to separate them with the naked eye, without knowing the technical sheets. At the writing, we did not hesitate to take pictures with both terminals, without changing the settings in the Photo apps. And the result is really unexpected. The Chinese smartphone seems to be more efficient than the new Japanese terminal.

If the Huawei P10 is very good in photo thanks to its dual sensor designed in partnership with Leica, the P10 Lite did not yield to the sirens of the dual photo sensor. The less muscular version of the P10 is satisfied with a single sensor of 12 megapixels which reminds us the color objective of the Huawei P9 . But the photo quality is pretty cool. Well, you’re going to put a cross on Bokeh mode or Portrait mode but, the picture quality should meet your expectations. As for the Xperia XA1 from Sony, it has an enormous photo sensor with a resolution of 23 Mpx at the back, much more than what we usually see on this segment.
As you can see from these pictures, the camera of the P10 is really not bad. Without any adjustment, its sensor makes very beautiful or even unrealistic photos (one might think that the HDR mode is activated), especially when they are displayed on the screen very bright colors of the P10 Lite . As for the Xperia XA1 Lite, its sensor is victim of a small veil, which spoils a little rendering. If the two smartphones offer nice qualities, I personally prefer to shopper a Huawei P10 whose dual photo sensor is putting everyone in agreement or, just waiting for the release of the Xperia XZ Premium that seems to tutoyer perfection . And what is your plan?
