Moto G 3rd Gen Camera Review – A complete overview

Published

on

So Motorola has finally launched the Moto G 3rd Gen, It has a 13MP rear and a 5MP front camera but still people have a number of doubts as Motorola is not that great on the Camera part. So this article maybe be a big one but it will worth the read. I will first Review the pictures captured by the Moto G 3rd Gen, then will compare the low light photos and will later also determine the geeky info. There is also a tutorial on how to use the Motorola’s Moto G camera, If you like to see that article, I will link it.

Motorola Moto G Camera Review

Daylight

As said the Moto G has a 13MP camera with a Toshiba sensor, Toshiba is not at all perfect  in making sensors and many times have failed in making a good camera sensor in  history. The 13 Mega Pixel camera has a f2.0 aperture which is pretty standard in the cameras now a days. I will start by showing some pictures of the daylight without HDR. I have compressed the pictures but you can get a complete look by seeing them in full resolution, the link will be provided at the end of the article.

This picture was shot in daylight with Moto G 3rd Generation

As you can see from the picture above, The image is clear but has a little grain in the layers. Also this image is a result of 4 attempt which I made, all others are shaky. Moto G 3rd Gen’s Camera does not have auto stabilization and also with enough light and mid ISO, the images tend to shake up.

The images above were all taken in ample of light. Even though it was taken in a bright sunlight, hats off to Moto G for delivering such a colour corrected image. The auto white balance does the job really well in close by shots.

Overall in the daylight the phone performs  well, but you still get minor grains on the images. The crispness which phones now a days delivers is lacking. Now if we shift it to Landscapes, the picture comes out to be really wonderful. The colours are vibrant and there isn’t those gains which are there at other times. I would be having the full resolution pictures at the end of this article, you can check that out too.

Artificial Light/ In Room with Moto G 3rd Gen

After hearing about the grainy pictures, you may think that Moto G camera really sucks but that isn’t true, As said the close-ups are clear with a very little grain. Motorola Moto G has Auto HDR and in artificial lighting most of the times HDR is used. See the picture below.

As you can see the image shot with HDR mode is crisp. There isn’t much of grain and also the there is a little blur in the background pretty much like the macro mode.

Image without HDR

As you can see in the image above, the object is still clear but the picture has more grains than before. Also there is more light on front whereas it is darker in the background.

Overall I would say the pictures shot by the Moto G in Day light and in Artifical lights are good. You can’t get the quality which you get on maybe the galaxy S6 but for a phone costing around 140$, this is pretty good. But, you may say that almost every phone performs well in good lighting so hold on, we have the next and most important thing in the camera, The low light shots.

Low Light photography of Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen

This parts gonna be intersting so first let me show you some pictures.

So as you can see from the images above, The low light pictures isn’t that bad. With a minor adjust of white balance you can get a perfect shot. The graininess might increase but overall the picture will be better. If you see the pillar image in which 13 is written, The picture is damn clear and crisp, also there isn’t any grains in it. The same goes for the image of the Red light, less grains and more clarity  thanks to the HDR mode.

Dual Tone Flash on Moto G 3rd Gen

Moto-G_Camera

The Moto G has a dual tone flash and which does the job well. The picture below was taken at absolutely no light, the dual tone flash helped in colour correction and as you can see, there is no yellowish tint which we often see in other cameras.

MotoG-Camera

Even though the above image has a bit of glare, but still the real image is clear.

Selfies

The Motorola Moto G has a 5MP front camera. The pictures on this camera isn’t that grainy but I feel like it is not that clear. The phones like  the Asus Zenfone 2 has a much better selfie camera than this. See the Image below.

The image above may seems to be clear enough, but the time you zoon in, the picture gets pixelated. You  can find the full resolution pictures below.

Overall I will say that Motorola 3rd Gen’s Camera is a big  improvement over the last one. The close-ups tend to be a little grainy but when you are in ample of light, the pictures comes out to be very well. The contrast in the pictures is vibrant and catchy. The other thing I liked about, is the UI of the phone. I have also done a full tutorial on the Moto G 3rd Gen Camera UI, you can check that out. It is simple, elegant and fast.

I would say that the camera of the MotorolaMmoto G 3rd Gen performs great in out doors but in artificial light, the picture comes out to be a bit grainy. The night shots are also well executed. The addition of the dual tone flash is a cherry on top. I would rate Moto G’s camera as 7.5 out of 10 in indoors and 8.8 in outdoors. 

The Motorola Moto G may not be a specialised camera phone, but  seeing the price and  the other features, Motorola has done a great job in providing a Crisp and Vibrant Camera

The full resolution images will be added soon.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 6t

Published

on

Yesterday I was checking comments on of our article on OnePlus 6t and ALmost every other comment was mentioning about the issue they were facing on their OnePlus 6t US version. So I researched a bit more about the same topic and what I found was that there does really exist some issues with the bluetooth on these new OnePlus phones. I was trying to find the solution for this bluetooth issue with OnePlus phones since then and I think finally I have the solution. So today we will see how you can fix the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6t. There can be different methods but I will be showing you the most robust yet the most simplest one.

How to – Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6/ 6t

Method 1

OnePlus even though is growing at an exponential rate is still not even near to the software teams of Apple or Samsung. The Oxygen OS is one of the lightest ROM you can find on a phone and it works well most of the time, but sometimes it is not perfect as it should be. The OS itself has some bugs related to Bluetooth that can only be fixed by a system update that has to be done by OnePlus. The same is also discussed on its own forum here. So, does this means that we have to live like it is? well, not at all! There are a few workarounds which we will tell you here.

Most of the problems in Oxygen OS can be fixed with a simple restart and the same goes with this issue as well. A simple restart will most probably fix this issue. Yup, it does sound naive but go ahead and restart your phone. This will solve most of your problems on your phone.

Now what I’ll suggest is to bookmark this page and if you still get the same issue in future then come back and read the method 2.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6

Method 2 – Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 /6t

So the restart didn’t help, well, no issues. Just empty your cache and the problem should no longer occur again for a while. So how to wipe your cache? There are two methods and I’ll suggest you to do both.

  1. Open Settings – Storage & memory and scroll down to find Cache data. Tap on it and press OK to clear the cached data.
  2. Now, wipe the cache partition from the recovery menu.
    • Turn off the OnePlus 6/6t, and then press and hold the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously.
    • Release the Power button when the OnePlus logo appears, but continue to hold the Volume Up
    • On the Android recovery screen, use the Volume Down button to navigate down to wipe cache partition and press the Power button to select it.
    • Use the Volume Down button to select Yes — delete all user data, and then press the Power button to confirm.
    • Wait for the reset to finish and press the Power button when prompted with the message to Reboot system now.

Now just use your phone and connect to bluetooth devices and it should not get disconnected at all.

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience. It features the latest, most powerful platform, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with up to 8GB of RAM that creates an experience that continues to set the standard for performance.

If you are still facing the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 then let us know and we will forward it to OnePlus!
