The day light photography with the primary camera by default capture in 12-megapixel mode. The 12MP shots were amazing with good details but the brightness in the shots were low. The colours in the shots were low contrasted as we compared with the original one. The 108-megapixel shots were amazing with the best colour contrast also the brightness in the images were good enough. The darker shots in the images look very natural and also the details in the images were amazing.


The telephoto capture amazing stills at 5X zoom, the shots have good details. The colours were well saturated and also warmer than the main camera shots.


 The capture from the ultra-wide camera is as same as we get from the main camera. The dynamic range was good enough also the details in the images were well defined. There was a little crispiness in the shots. The colours were better than they appear on the main camera.


There is no special macro camera sensor for the phone, we can have the shots macro mode from the ultra-wide camera. The macro shots are of 16 megapixels. The details were good, and the colour contrast was less but the saturation is good.


In the low light conditions the main camera without the night mode gives you the good pictures with an amazing dynamic range. The shadow details in the pictures were less. The darkness in the images were more. The details in the good light conditions were good but there was a little bit noise in the images.

Night mode:

The night mode in the phone improves the brightness in the darker areas of picture. The shadow in the images gets boosted by the light. And also, the details in the shots are improved and the noise in the images are decreased. The saturation in the images is well. There was a heavy saturation in the images.

The ultra-wide in the night mode is good enough with the best dynamic range and details in the images were good enough, the focus is good. As per me their need to more brightness in the night mode ultra-wide images.

The portrait shots were taken in main camera of the phone. the phone has the pretty great subject detection. The auto blur feature has good edge detection and also the blur in the images were soft which appears natural.


The phone 32MP selfie camera with good dynamic range. But it captures at 8MP by default. The shots have the best details and also the colours in the shots were well saturated and toned.

In the case of 32MP the colours saturation was low than we have seen in 8MP mode. The sharpness in the images were very high. The brightness in the images were increased.

When it comes to portrait shots, the snaps have extra brightness which looks somewhat odd, but the blur and edge detection was good and impressive.
