What can you do with the dual-lens cameras in both the devices?

The Moto G5s Plus comes with 13-megapixels + 13-megapixels dual-lens rear camera. There is one RGB sensor and one monochrome sensor in the dual-lens setup. You can select where you want to focus, and then add a blur effect to the rest of the objects on the screen. You can also adjust the blur effect while editing in Google Photos.

There is something called Selective black & white that allows you choose an area in the photo which you would like to stay in colour while turning the other areas into black and white. You can also replace the background of a picture with another from a picture in your Google Photos library.

On the other hand, the dual-lens camera set-up of the Lenovo K8 Note comes with a 13-megapixel primary and 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor. The device primarily aims to offer bokeh effect and Lenovo claims “a depth of field of up to virtual DSLR-equivalent f/1.2.”

What’s more?

The Lenovo K8 Note is powered by a 10-core Mediatek Helio X23 processor while the Moto G5s Plus runs a 8-core Snapdragon 625 processor. The display of the both the smartphone are similar at 5.5-inch with Full HD resolution. In terms of overall performance, the spec sheet doesn’t offer much of a differentiation and stock Android 7.1. Nougat operating system buries the hatchet enough more.

As far as the battery life is concerned, the Lenovo K8 Note promises better battery time with its 4,000mAh battery compared to 3,000mAh battery of the Moto G5s Plus which can last a maximum of a day.
