On Camera, it comes with Dual 12MP rear Camera. The primary sensor has a f/1.7 aperture, a 25mm focal length, and optical image stabilization. The second sensor has a f/2.6 aperture and a 59mm focal length, which is used for the ‘optically’ zooming into your subject.In the camera app, there’s a zoom button just before the shutter. At 2.3x zoom, the second camera kicks in, but only if the lighting is good. In less than ideal light, it sticks to the main camera so what you get is essentially digital zoom. The maximum zoom level in still mode is 12x, while for video it’s 5x. You can switch to the second sensor only in Auto, Manual, and HDR Pro shooting modes. Rear Camera can record videos up to 4K. On the front, there is a 13-megapixel sensor which produces good selfies in both daylight and low light. The dual Rear camera produces good images in Indoor, Outdoor and Lowlight conditions, 2X Zoom also works fine, There is also a Portrait mode which works well in outdoor condition while struggles in low light or indoor conditions. Overall camera performance is good.
