    Can't believe people pay so much attention to these reviewers.

    Hi all,
    I exchanged my OP3T mobile for Pocofone F1 last time in flipkart sale. I use it for calls, Whatsapp, Movies, Camera. NO Games. Only thing i am not happy is camera. (Till i check OP6). When i zoom in computer, the picture detail distracts. Look good in mobile screen. Some low light pictures are like painted. Mean time got OP6 from a friend. He is ready to sell it.
    After checking the OP6 camera , i didn't find any big difference between the two in daylight. Some picture from pocofone looks good than OP6. Am i doing any thing wrong? I am an average user.
    Now confused which mobile to keep. Poco gives very good SOT.
    Any pointer how to click good photos.

    Download GCAM and install immediately.
    Quite good results

    I'd guess the poco lacks optical image stabilization thus rendering slightly inferior photos compared to its sd845 counterparts .
    No amount of software image stabilization can beat the real deal .

    Have never heard of software image stabilisation for stills. What pixel does is take a few with slightly faster shutter speeds and higher iso, averages to clean up and get a cleaner than stock photo

    With video it crops and stabilises sometimes better than ois with no jello effect. Software stabilisation is primarily with video

    I think he was talking about how night shot measures hand shake thru phone gyroscope and decides whether to open shutter for long time and get blurry photos or take few small high speed shutters like you said.

    Pixel 2 & 3 have OIS so there will be less handshake. Shutter speed as low as 1/5 on the pixel 3

    The world was surprised by that MKBHD review. I was addicted to my OP5T, gave it to Dad, and got the Redmi 6 pro. Happy.

    After using it for a few days, I think the poco is VFM and worth having. Feels good too in hand.

    Only if you can accept ads in MIUI. There is no competition at all

    Umm, planning to switch to Pixel Experience in a few days. MIUI is not that bad, blocked almost everything.

    I'm using my Poco with LineageOS 16. Very happy with how the phone is doing, I was super pissed off with MIUI coming from AOSP ROMs from my other phones. Happy with the battery life and Gcam, especially night sight.

    Oh buy xplayer, it is cheap. Way better than MX Player. I tried playing a 10 GB file with MX. It stuttered, Xplayer was butter smooth, I will recommend it. Supports background play too. Check it out. Best rated player on Android.
