Why Lava V5 is a Perfect Camera Phone in the Budget Segment?

While the budget smartphone segment is getting crowded with every passing day, it becomes really very difficult to stand out from the crowd. By launching a camera focused device Lava V5, the company managed to do so.

Lava has designed this smartphone keeping in mind the photography enthusiasts, and has stuffed in many hardware and software features that make its camera better than the most. Let’s have a look why Lava V5 is a perfect camera phone in the budget segment.

 The Rear Camera Packs-In A Lot!

Talking about the specifications, the primary camera unit on the device is of 13 Megapixels, with Samsung 3M2 ISOCELL sensor. It supports PDAF auto focus system, 5-layer Largan lens with blue glass filter, f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash.

That’s a lot of tech stuff! Let’s dig into the details and know what they exactly are. Samsung developed the ISOCELL technology for its camera sensors, and incorporated it into its flagship devices. The technology isolates each pixel by using physical barriers around them to prevent the light entering through the sensor from scattering. As a result, Lava V5 clicks clear and sharp pics every time you hit the shutter button. Also the rear camera is capable of recording 1080p videos even in dim lights for people who love to record best moments.

If that wasn’t enough, Lava also included PDAF autofocus system in the camera that can lock the focus on the subject within 0.18 seconds, going by the claim of ‘Never Miss a Shot’. With a combination of f/2.0 aperture and dual LED light, the camera on Lava V5 4G ensures detailed shots even in low light conditions.

Front Camera is Even as Brilliant

Similar to the rear camera, front facing camera also features Largan Lens. The 8 MP selfie camera supports 84-degree wide angle lens, which is a great feature for taking group selfies. Also, the camera sensor comes with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash for better low light shots. Lava V5 cameras allow selfie lovers to capture amazing selfies without worrying about poor lighting conditions.
