  1. My version of rear camera is OmniVision OV13855. Different of sony or samsumg cameras. Image quality is good. Soon I will do comparation with sony sensor.

  2. Xiaomi did nothing new or wrong bro, it's perfectly normal for companies to use different sensors, which are nearly identical most of the times. This is no secret at all. Samsung also uses different sensors for their smartphones, you can easily find this info on the internet, even here on youtube. Galaxy S8 family for instance uses Samsung S5K2L2 or Sony IMX333, while Galaxy S7 uses Samsung S5K2L1 or Sony IMX260. Xiaomi already used Samsung S5K3M2 and Sony IMX258 in the Mi4C. I have news for you, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 also uses Samsung S5K3M3 or Sony IMX386. Yes there are some differences, but comparisons are mostly BS. You can also find comparisons in which the Samsung sensor wins. I have seen pictures taken with the Samsung sensor that look much better than the Sony sensor. I have a Redmi Note 2 with an older Samsung sensor (S5K3M2) and I'm very pleased with the quality. If the Samsung sensor in the Redmi Note 4 is only slightly better I would be very happy. I mean, it's not like you would ever actually notice you have a Samsung branded sensor in stead of a Sony… No, people have to first go check that info on their phone to find out and then start complaining….

  3. I have found some comparison between 3 camera sensors and it looks like samsung sensor is the worst, OV is ok and sony is the best, also I have read that not all the camera features of custom roms will work with all 3 sensors because rom does not fully support sensor, probably most of them are developed for sony, my 4X have OV13855 and I am satisfied with photos but for example Bacon Camera shutter speed crashes app if it is set to 1/2s, the slowest is 1/3s.
    Here is link with photos ( https://goo.gl/ikGzKb ), the first two columns are sony, second columns are samsung and third two are OV 13855.

  4. I also have Redmi note 4 SD version but the xiaomi puted a Samsung sensor instead of Sony imx 258 just making people fool please contact and share this video anyhow one of the youtuber from C4E tech, Geekyranjit ,Sharma ji technical, or technical guruji anyhow they will definately put this issue in front of xiaomi to expose this issue

  5. Now I know why my camera quality doesn't look like I expected ? I hope everyone who got the samsung camera version could get a free change for the sony camera version ?

  6. if anybody knows how to improve frame rate in low light let me know, it is horrible to have 10-15fps, phone is great but video sucks, I had galaxy S5 and video was not as bright as on redmi note 4x but 30fps all the time, regarding speed redmi note 4x ate S5 for breakfast 🙂

  7. Hello TechUtopia I have also redmi note 4x and both Camera has Samsung sensor front cam ofilm_sk5e8 same the back..you know my phone is note 4x but the model number is redmi note 4..you think my phone is fake i bougth it from Lazada online shopping..i got this phone oct. 12, 2017..pls let me know if my phone is fake and tell me what to do..

  8. I have xiaomi redmi note 4ram/64rom heliox20.. but why my camera is like this back s5k3l8_new and front s5k5e8yx ? are these the same as the other note4x samsung cameras?

  9. I have Xiaomi redmi note 4x global rom… Sensor: ov_13855
    'Wht d hll' is that? Sony or samsung? I don't know.. I really love this phone but the camera man… Dissapointed..

  10. sup dude love your xiaomi videos especially the redmi 4x and note 4x, so i baught a brand new redmi note 4x this year. FEB 22, 2018 to be exact.
    and just found out that my sensors is way different.
    front camera – qtech_s5k5e8
    back camera – qtech_ov13855
    so i felt like xiaomi really is cheating this time. and they never announce tha changes in camera sensor
