Camera and Sample Images

5MP Hardware, 13MP Software

In terms of imaging, the ThL L969 is equipped with a 5-megapixel main camera with flash and a VGA camera on the front. We are quite surprised to discover that the L969’s camera interface has an option to upscale its megapixel count (up to 13 megapixels), which we deem is a form of built-in software interpolation. Images captured with the L969 are average with hints of fuzziness and soft colors. Images captured in low light conditions are fuzzier and manifested image noise. Taking good photos at night with the L969 can be tricky and users must learn how to play around with its camera settings. The L969 is also capable of recording Full HD videos, which we believe are interpolated as well. Overall, the quality of images captured with the L969 is comparable to the outputs of other MT6582-based smartphones that we encountered before, namely the MyPhone Rio and the Lenovo S660.

The phone's camera interface offers an option to increase megapixel count (13MP max). In actuality, the camera uses a 5-megapixel sensor.

Below are the images captured with the ThL L969.
