Xiaomi unveiled its second Android One phone, the Mi A2 earlier this month.
Just like the predecessor Mi A1, the new midranger promised great specs at a budget price. Additionally, the phone also has some of the best cameras on a phone that goes for as low as $300. There’s a dual camera set up on the rear – a pair that consists of a 12 MP f/1.75 sensor and a 20 MP f/1.75 low-light camera.
The Mi A2 will take some time before arriving in the international market, including Pakistan, so the wait continues. We already have some camera samples, so you can check out its photography performance beforehand.
With good lighting, the Mi A2 lets you shoot some impressive photos with good colors and adequate level of detail. The camera might not be flagship-grade, but handles photography much better than sensors present in most midrange devices sold in the same price bracket.
Here are some daylight samples that were taken from the Mi A2’s rear camera,
Most budget phones are able to take decent photos with good lighting. What makes a good smartphone camera stand out is its ability to retain a similar level of detail even in low-light conditions.
The Mi A2 outshines other midrangers and performs much better at night and in poor lighting scenarios. It’s secondary 20 MP camera on the rear kicks in immediately when it detects low light, and works in tandem with the primary shooter to produce crisp images even at night.
