Rear Camera : 13MP, f/2.2, NeoVision 6.0, Auto Focus, flash
Front Camera : 16MP, fixed focus, f/2.0
Video Recording : 1080p (FHD) resolution

The camera quality is excellent. Low light should looks good but if you switch to manual then it gets even better. The hardware can shoot Full HD videos. Do check the sample images. Front camera does a decent job.

  1. Sir i am confused between nubia n2 , lenovo k8 note and redmi note 4 ..all are available for same price point… Which is better phone to buy for long term usage …does nubia provides update for its phones

    1. Bro im also worried about update but thats not matter…my frd have lenovo k8 note it has gorilla glass but when his phone fell down screen have nothing to worry but display have some bad spot….rather i ordered nubia n2 lets see what will happen

  2. Nubia N2 is worthwhile at ₹12999..the price at which amazon was selling this just 10 days ago. Then they got greedy and Jacked it to 15999.

  3. Gogi Ji the display is only 720p and not 1080p like redmi note4. Does that make a difference. If redmi note4 has a better display than this one

    1. No difference actually, just 1080p need more processing power so use chipset that supports 1080p.

    1. No both SIM slot support it, means you can use JIO in 1 or 2 but you cannot use 2 Jio on this. Such phones with dual JIO on them has yet to be launched. As of now no phone supports 2 Jio on it.

  4. Gogi,

    It seems, the days have long gone where there used to be a line in your reviews, ” *Applications can be installed directly on external memory card*”.

    Now a days, not a single OEM offers such option instead they keep on offering different amount of internal storages.

    Anyways, any one offering this option as such ? Any one…

    1. SD card is risky, for two things one is if SD card is damaged or defective then issue seconds is if app is on remove it and then again issue. Hence since Marshmallow the option has been officially deactivated. Having app on internal storage improves performance.

      1. gogi sir can i watch movies using 16gb class 4 sdcard or will it slowdown my phone
        i am using redmi note 4

  5. Gogi, its having single camera and u have rated it exelent bt their Z 17mini is having dual cam bt u rated it above average. pls clarify..

    1. Please read review / check sample images you will know, if you still can’t see the difference then it will not matter if you choose this of Mini.

    2. @suresh Maybe the quality of Z17 mini might improve after update as it has some problem with Bokeh effect in portrait mode.

    1. Both are almost same, you will need to use manual to get better results on low light.

    1. Why? You will only get 32gb internal and hybrid slot which is a huge dealbreaker for many. P2 also looks ugly and generic.
