The market is flooded with dual camera smartphones and in fact many new smartphones that are launched most likely will come with dual camera features either on the back or on the front. Here is the list of Best Dual Camera Smartphones that you can buy in India.

Dual camera smartphones work in a different way, they can shoot together and then via software bokeh effects are  added. So with dual camera setup you can shoot professional style photos without using a DSLR. There are limitations however, but these are way better than ordinary smartphones with single camera.

Though the bokeh effect is software generated the same can be created using single camera lens, but the process specially the capturing process is slow, hence dual lens come into picture. Check the list of Best dual Camera (Rear) smartphones in India.

When buying a budget friendly  dual camera smartphone better check out the review because not all dual camera smartphones work the way it should.

A new brand Tenor entered the market with 10.or G also called Tenor G, now this handset also comes with dual camera setup, I will be getting the handset for review, after that will add that in the list if the dual camera is worth it.

Tenor G or 10.or G with dual cameras launched

Wondering why Moto G5S Plus is not included? Hint check title. Some handsets that I have listed have not yet been reviewed by me, am giving the benefit of doubt. If you have used those handset mentioned that I have not reviewed, you can leave a comment below and let other users know about the dual camera performance.
