Camera UI

Shots from the Primary Camera in normal lighting conditions are great, having great dynamic range, great color reproduction, and still being crisp and having good details when zoomed in,
In low light, without night mode the pics are average at best but in night mode the pics are very good for low light conditions with good details and very less noise

Ultrawide shots are also very good, having great colors and a good amount of details, Night mode is also available in the Ultrawide and the shots in night mode are good
Macro shots are Above Average and are like some hit some miss, due to focus being fixed, the shots miss if you don’t keep the distance properly, but if the distance is set properly then the shots are good
The Depth sensor is great, Portrait shots are great and very accurate

For Selfies We have a Quad Bayer 32 MP camera but the shots are stored in 12 MP format, the selfies are great, in Normal lighting also there is a slow-motion mode available for the front camera

Video Recording options include 2160P @30FPS, 1080P @30/240FPS, 1080P @960FPS
The videos are great with a good amount of details, In 1080P we get the super steady mode which is great, the videos are super stable in this mode even when walking fast
