Camera quality is excellent, the dual cameras on the back does a really good job, the bokeh effects are pretty good and so is the edge detection. Front camera is 24MP, single camera but you can shoot bokeh style selfies and that too is really impressive.
There is AR sticker mode with a lot of stickers that will adjust on a face in real time and then you can click the shutter. Low light / Night shots in Auto mode is not at all impressive but if you switch to manual mode then the output is a lot better.
