Nokia X71 Camera Review

Nokia X71 comes with Zeiss Optics48MP + 8MP (13mm ultrawide camera) + 5MP (depth sensor) triple back camera, but wait, do not get fooled. Camera sensor may sound excellent but what matters is the capabilities. However, no doubt for the price you are getting a pretty good deal in terms of camera. Nokia X71 can shoot some amazing pictures in daylight with plenty of details in the final output. Image processing is really good on the Nokia X71. The camera performs really good in the low light too, given the aperture is F1.8. However, you will notice grains and soft images when it comes to low light photography.

Nokia X71 also includes various filters that you can apply before taking the picture and will come handy in various scenarios. The phone has a dedicated pro mode for the professionals and everything is adjustable. Dynamic range on the Nokia X71 is not so great & not so bad as well. Overall, images do look sharp & crisp when there is good lighting condition but in the night this phone struggles to capture a good amount of details. However, you may end up getting a really good shot sometimes. Colors captured on the camera is very close to accurate and are well saturated.

Nokia X71 is also capable of recording videos in 2160p @30fps and 1080p @30fps in high details and accuracy when given proper lighting to the camera. Nokia X71 comes with 16MP selfie camera & the inbuilt software provides you with a beauty mode to enhance your looks. Although not a huge fan of beauty mode, the front camera was able to capture really good pictures. Also, not to forget the additional filters that are really important for most of the users. Let us look for the Pro & Cons for the Nokia X71 camera –

  1.  Good dynamic range

Nokia X71 Battery Review

Nokia X71 packs in a 3500mah battery & is a non-removable one. Despite not so big battery compare to the other phones, Nokia X71 can hold up till night on a single charge. This includes some calls, Wifi always on, casual gaming, watching videos & scrolling through Instagram. When using some intense tasks such as gaming or watching movies for long, the Nokia X71 battery area gets a little bit heated and start to decrease a little bit more than usual in percentage.

Nokia X71 battery is also quickly chargeable, thanks to fast charging support with an appropriate charger. However, the battery did not last fair enough when mobile data was remained on.  Also, when full brightness was toggled, the phone could lose battery percent rapidly. The battery on the Nokia X71 is good enough for casual tasks, but if you are a heavy smartphone user then I guess you need to travel with a power bank. You can also turn on battery saver to get more life. Now, let us look for the Pros & Cons for the Nokia X71 Battery –
