And the rear camera is also very great but not as good as the oneplus 8.
So in our experience it is a very great smartphone at this price range. Although the competition is though for nord because Redmi K20 Pro and Realme X3 series smartphones gives you better performance and specifications but you can buy Nord as an alternative.
