The phone is very, very good in poor light conditions. Where it lets itself down is that the colours are distorted and lack sharpness compared to the iPhone
Yeah people need to have real expectations on what they will get for the money. And a £300 phone ain't or should not ever beat a £1000 phone in almost all departments. But the thing is most people only use the pictures for social media anyway and in that case most phone cameras will do fine 90% of the time. Especially in good daylight, it's only at night the £300 camera will start to fall apart. Personally I always want a top end phone but more for media and day to day performance the camera is so so to me. Currently have a S20 but think I might swap it for a mi 10 or Poco f2 pro as they have a better processor and much better battery life and for me that's more important than camera.
Hardly in the same price bracket though. That iPhone was a £1k phone. Yours is £300. You could lose it twice and still have change (cheeky)
Ive had the Realme X2 for a few months now. I tested the camera against my friends iPhone 11 Pro. It was awful. iPhone won hands down i'm sorry to say.
Same budget i was working to, jumped on the Huawei Nova 5T yesterday, arriving later today <3
