Bluboo S8: Sample Shots
You saw a glimpse of the Bluboo S8’s performance just a few days ago. Now, let’s take a look at how it fares in photography. The S8 is equipped with dual 13MP + 3MP AF rear cameras with LED flash, as well as an 8MP front shooter. Take a look at some of the sample shots below.
Let’s start off with the rear cameras. Images produced by the 13MP + 3MP pair are good as long as shots are taken in well-lit conditions. Photos have good quality, colors, and sharpness. The bokeh feature is also impressive, as you can freely adjust the background blur, although it does look too eerily artificial at times. Once we move on to low-light shots, however, it becomes an entirely different story as the cameras struggle to even provide a usable image. The LED flash too, provides little to assist in these situations.
Moving on to the front 8MP shooter, shots taken in bright areas are average at best, as images have a bit of grain and noise and detail is a bit off. The beauty settings are quite nice though, as it allows multiple levels of adjustment, and it doesn’t make you look too artificial. Do try to find the perfect balance, as maxing it out would make you look weird. Sadly, just like with the rear cameras, the front shooter struggles in low-light situations and the lack of additional light to support it, such as a front LED flash or screen flash is also disappointing.
And that’s about it for the camera performance of the Bluboo S8. We’ll be testing it out more in the coming days, so stay tuned for our full review. In the meantime, you check out our first impressions here.
