People often don't realise that a smartphone camera is good not just because of its camera quality. While image quality of course makes sense, other aspects like the processor, RAM etc. are what make it a good camera phone. This is the reason why the iPhone 6 is still considered amongst the best camera phones in the market, it is fast and takes good images consistently. Of course, it costs a lot of money too. But a good camera phones shouldn't always mean lots of money spent. Here's why..
The Nubia Z9 Mini runs on a mid-ranged Snapdragon 615 SoC, but it has a high-end Sony IMX240 image sensor. The phone takes amazing pictures, which are comparable to the Galaxy S6, making it the best camera phone in the sub-20k segment.
Motorola's new Moto X Play smartphone also runs on the Snapdragon 615, but the company has gone the extra mile to improve the camera. As a result, the Moto X Play has one of the best cameras in the sub-20k segment, and is one of the most balanced phones in this price range.
Only 16GB is the problem here, but if that works for you, then go ahead, buy the OnePlus One. It's got a pretty great camera to boot!
Listicles about cameras are never complete without a Xiaomi phone, and this one has two! The Xiaomi Mi 4i costs less than 13k and comes with a really good 13MP camera, which gets even better with its HDR mode.
The 13MP camera on the Xiaomi Mi 4 was our pick in the budget range for a long time. Go for the 64GB variant though, which costs Rs. 17,999 and will have ample space to store all those images you take.
While not many have heard of the Coolpad brand, the Dazen X7 is easily one of the best phones in the sub-20k segment. It has the 13MP Sony IMX214 sensor, which is the same as the Xiaomi Mi 4i, and takes really good pictures.
While the Lumia 640XL's camera isn't the best that has come from the Lumia brand, it's still a great shooter in the sub-20k segment.
In our review we said the Zenfone Selfie has good overall cameras on both the back and front. It's got two 13MP shooters, one each on the front and back.
With a laser-assisted auto-focus system in a sub-10k phone, Asus has a pretty good device here. It's camera is good for short range shooting and doesn't do badly in long range either.
The Meizu M2 Note competes directly with the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser, and while it may be the better overall smartphone, the Zenfone 2 Laser has a better camera. The difference though is visible only when the two phones are placed side by side!
