The Primary 108MP Camera shots are great, with an amazing level of details even at 10X Zoom the pictures were very detailed, the shots tend to a bit more saturated but can be fixed in the setting, In the Night Mode the performance remains same, the shots were very good, with a good amount of details and unless it is fully dark the noise level was also acceptable

The ultrawide Shots are very good, but sometimes tends to lack a bit of warmth, but the colors and dynamic range were very good, and the same case in the night mode
The Maco shots were also great
The Depth Sensor is also great with the portrait shots were great with accurate edge detection.

Video options include (8K)4320P @30FPS, (4K)2160P @30/60FPS, [email protected]/60FPS, OIS is available till 4K, at 8K there is no stabilization, but the video shot at 8K was amazing, at 4K the colors were very punchy and saturated but were overall great.

For Selfies we have a 20 MP, f/2.0 Wide Lens, the selfies were again great, also the portrait from selfie cam had accurate edge detection and was pretty good
