Vivo Y53i is a low-end phone for Indian market, but is it a Redmi rival?

The Vivo Y53i is the latest phone from the Chinese brand to launch in India that it hopes will win market share from Xiaomi’s budget Redmi phones. The Y53i carries a 7,990 rupee (~$120) price tag and is available now in the region, the company has announced. In terms of sheer horsepower, the device offers 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a 2,500 mAh battery, and a low-end Snapdragon 425 quad-core chipset. Display-wise, we’re looking at a 5-inch panel with a 960 x 540 resolution. Editor’s Pick These are the 5 best Indian smartphone brands Indian smartphone brands are losing ground to Chinese manufacturers in their home market — not a single one made the list of the five biggest players in Q3. Samsung is tied with Xiaomi for first … The Vivo Y53i also offers an 8MP main shooter and a 5MP selfie camera. Vivo is touting “ultra HD” photo functionality for their device though, allowing it to combine multiple 8MP snaps into a 32MP shot. “Ultra HD technology takes several consecutive images and combines them, enabling the 8MP rear camera to render up to 32MP photos,” Vivo explains on its website. It’s unclear how effective this can be, although we certainly liked the Oppo N3’s Ultra HD feature, praising it for reducing noise. Fans of facial unlocking will also want to look at the Vivo device (literally),...

Huawei P20 Pro: Taking a photo in complete darkness

The Huawei P20 Pro and regular P20 are packed with cutting edge photography features. One particularly interesting option we touched on in our Huawei P20 Pro review is Night Mode. The shooting option boasts the ability to capture better looking low light pictures by using a very long exposure time, with a few tricks to avoid common problems like blurriness and light smudging. At the core of Huawei’s Night Mode technology is its artificial intelligence stabilization (AIS), which is really just a fancy word for software image stabilization. In this mode, the Huawei P20 camera takes one or more long exposure images using different camera settings and then applies software stitching to create the best-looking image. Editor’s Pick Huawei P20 Pro review: The Galaxy S9 killer 40MP, the world’s first triple camera, 5X Hybrid Zoom, artificial intelligence in all the ways, and the most unique color on any smartphone ever. These are just some of the features Huawei is hoping will … You can manually dial in the exposure time for more control over the shot, or the camera can pick automatically based on the lighting conditions.
