7 Best Camera Smartphones within Rs 10000 India

Updated – 10/Jun/2018 – If you are planning to buy the latest best camera mobile in India, we have listed some of the lowest price best smartphones with exceptional camera quality below Rs. 10,000. Some of these phones come with a higher Megapixel camera and some with lower, though all of these offers good photography options.

We have kept most phones in the price range of 8k to 10k.

The image quality for all smartphone camera’s deteriorated with low light conditions. The images become more grainy and have more noise in artificial light. One more important thing to remember.

Higher Mega Pixel Count doesnot make a Camera Better .

I would suggest not to take higher Megapixel,  as the only major factor while deciding on best camera mobile.

It is more important for the camera to render the captured image fast (a processor function), absorb more light using wider aperture lens, have fast autofocus system, to take great images.

Pixel 2 XL has a 12 MP camera but it captures great images, because of lens quality, higher aperture size and ability to process the absorbed light in the best possible way & to render the image fast. So it is not necessary that a 16 MP camera will take better images in comparison to an 8 or 12 MP camera.
