Crosscall Action-X5 Test: Very solid on the outside, a little less on the inside

The CrossCall Action X5 is equipped with a dual rear photo gallery with 48MPX wide-angle (f / 1.8) and ultra-wide angle 13MPX (f / 2). A configuration that has become very common on all devices, even at an affordable price. This is also the case Redmi 9D, Which was very good for its price, and it was measurable.

Main volume: 48 megapixels, f / 1.8

The wide-angle volume is 12 megapixels thanks to the shooting technique Pixel pinning, Which makes it possible to combine four pixels, capturing more light when it is exhausted.

In good light conditions the Action-X5 gives a very pleasant result. We are entitled to a good amount of detail and clear image, even if the general color gauge is slightly higher towards red. The rendering of the Redmi 9T is very similar, but the choice of more variant is overall more flattering. This is his credit.

No night time surprises. Digital noise creates its appearance and the shot seems to be filtered out of its colors, even though every element is visible. The Redmi 9T works a little better, especially thanks to the excellent expression. But we are not in front of smartphones designed for night photography.

In the world of rugged smartphones, the Action-X5 can be compared to its cousin. Core-X4. The best way to evaluate progress. We quickly find that the newcomer provides additional details, especially the faces or the cover of the book. The Core-X4 fails to deliver the same level of sharpness. On the other hand, color scale is better and blacks are deeper.

Mode 48 MPX

It is still possible to shoot full definition (48 Mpx) displays, but this mode often does not bring significant change in smartphones. We have isolated the same size (0.90 Mpx) in each scene to better compare them.

Day or night, switching to full definition does not add significant detail gain to the image. The same care for the color scale, remains unchanged. We can use it for one crop, but not much.

Method Ultra Grand-Angle: 13 Mpx, f / 2, 120

Like most smartphones today, this crossover offers an ultra wide-angle module. As is often the case in the entry and intermediate range, the Action X5 has a high definition sensor but the experience is not really conclusive.

In good light, the veil of fog seems to obscure the photo. This is unfortunate because the level of detail is decent – and the views are clear. Without the brightness, the Redmi 9D offers a usable display despite the discoloration.

In the dark, this blur thickens and digital noise occupies the photo. The image of the Redmi 9T is a little better, and it makes it possible to better differentiate the whole thing. All of that is not enough to do miracles.

Front module, portrait and video mode

The smartphone offers a 13-megapixel front sensor, which is supported by a lens that opens at f / 2. If we do not specify the price of the smartphone directly, we can say that the result ranks in the small average. The general color scheme is very cool and the faces appear pale. There is little sharpness in the pictures either. You can take selfies that can be used during the day, you do not move much.

As for video, Croskell offers to shoot in 1080p, an electronic stabilization system that is useful for those who like restless games. Allows you to make minor adjustments from the device’s home use device.
