I have just got a Redmi Note 7, the stock camera is great but not good enough to me. So I used Google camera apk and the result was even better. I will not say it can beat flagship camera, but the shots (no matter in day, night or extremely low light) are very pleasing. Yet the ones from Stock camera are already very good. Pixel-binning seems to be an important technological innovation for phone cameras.
DantE O2, 11 Feb 2019yes but regarding the processor limits, that 48mp is merely an upsample processed photo. not a... moreYep, maybe better results will be with Not 7 Pro camera.
I think for this price, camera is usable, even with Note 7, does not matter 12 or 48mp.
But audio quality from camera seems worske than for example from Note 5 AI.. also autofocus seems slower. At least we know, where is made compromise, to get this (low) price.
my asus zenfone 5 lite (Q) can took 49mp photo too, using super resolution mode on camera setting, though still run nougat
S9, 09 Feb 2019You can read review and find out how Xiaomi manage to get 48mp resolution (when is 'pro' mode ... moreyes but regarding the processor limits, that 48mp is merely an upsample processed photo. not an original 48mp photo from a 48mp lens.
the same reason review finds 48m not preferable and even recommends sticking to 12mp
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2019Half of j series uses plsJ1 (2016), J2 (2018), J3 (2016), J4 (2018), J5 (2017), J6 (2018), J7 (2016), J7 (2017) etc use Super Amoled..
If you think for J4 Plus or somerhing like that, with SD425 inside.. not worth it the price, even for such a cheap device. Sorry.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2019Nope samsung's pls is the worst I have one and it has bleedingWell, Samsung was not use that type of screen, for years. J series was with SAmoled, A series also. So.. what Samsung low end phone you have with PLS type of screen? On series, Grand Prime from 2014?
Or, one of those newest Samsung phones from low end M 10, 20? :]
Anyway i bot saying that Samsung PLS screen is aweaome (because, is not) that medal goes to Super Amoled, especially on this S9 (last year flagship).
Im saying that M20 have better screen, better colors, more satured, than screen from some Redmi models frim past year.
On the other hand, M series (M10, M20) is plastic-fantastic phones, and have 17-th month Android version out of box..
Gary, 08 Feb 2019It certainly would be nice if they put in better screens. I think it's unlikely because Honor ... moreTo be honest, Samsung TFT (read PLS) screens is better than those in Redmi series (Redmi 5, 5 Plus, Note 5..).
But even better screens from Samsung is Super Amoled, and that screen tehnology will be in M30.
About Oppo, dont know, here it does not exist (maybr just Nex series).
I hope that Xiaomi will start to use better screens, with better colors, without screen bleeding. If they do that and increase price by 20%, it will be fair.

Anonymous, 09 Feb 2019Is it actually 48 MP? Read somewhere that the chipset only support max 25 MPgood point, even Qualcomm official site state SD660 supports 25mp single or 16mp dual
so that a question how's that possible.unless i'm missing something.

I don't really know,How does its display looks like.Probablygood enough in this budget segment!
But there's big problem with xiaomi.Now-a-days they can't maintain colour accuracy with its display to deliver standard colour.
Recent Redmi lineup phone such note 5 ai and note 6 pro both phones display output dull green colour which isn't so expected but surprisingly they can deliver vivid red colour which looks pretty cool!
matea, 07 Feb 2019Global version, when??omg can't you wait? The miui forums are literally oversaturated with "pie update when", "global rom when", "miui 10 when" threads, and those all have been closed with the response of "there's no official statement yet, please be patient."
S9, 06 Feb 2019Forget NFC in Redmi series, more important for Xiaomi to start use better screns in this low-m... moreIt certainly would be nice if they put in better screens. I think it's unlikely because Honor and vivo also use these cheap Tianma panels in their low-end phones, and Samsung uses even worse TFT panels.
Some minor brands use better screens, such as Sharp Aquos S2 (Sharp's own LCD) and Lenovo Z5 (AU Optronics), so it's possible, but they probably have to cut out extras such as Gorilla Glass protection.
