OPPO
For us, the POCOPHONE F1 is a solid all-rounder. Why? Aside from its flagship worthy processor, it has good back and front camera specs.

The F1 is equipped with a dual camera setup at the back. It goes with a 12MP f/1.9 Sony IMX363 sensor + 5MP f/2.0 Samsung sensor. It is paired with Dual Pixel AF, EIS, AI, and dual-tone LED flash.

The secondary 5MP sensor is for the portrait shots with depth effect. It will allow you to shoot images with shallow depth of field or bokeh effect ala DSLR.

Its AI is for auto scene detection. Basically, it will adjust the camera settings automatically like exposure, saturation, and etc. based on the condition. It can detect a total of 206 scenes like food, plant, pets, and more. 

It also has a manual camera mode with WB, focus, shutter (1/1000s to 32s), and ISO (100 to 3200). It has no EV and metering though.

For selfies, it features a 20MP f/2.0 sensor with AI. The AI is for face beauty and scene detection.

Sounds fun right? Here are the first few shots we got with the POCO F1.

The dual cameras at the back of the POCOPHONE F1 produced good looking photos for the price. It can even compete with other higher-end phones in terms of daylight performance.

Details are crisp yet oversharpened. Colors are mostly balanced. Though there times where it'll make the shots a bit warmer.

Close-up shots are decent too. It even has good depth of field even without the bokeh mode turned on.

Speaking of the bokeh mode, it can produce deep background blur with respectable edge detection.

Lowlight shots are okay. It is a bit softer than the Mi 8. But, it can still take images with good details and not that much grain. Dynamic range is isn't the best out there, but its exposure control is close to flagship grade.

The texts in our lowlight shots from afar are still readable.

Selfies are great as well! The 20MP f/2.0 shooter of the POCO F1 are better than expected too.

It can actually compete with the Mi 8 selfies. Its color tone is more on the balanced side. The face beauty is not that aggressive and the bokeh blur looks quite nice even if it doesn't have a secondary shooter.

Lowlight selfies are respectable. Though expect it to be a bit softer and grainy. That's normal though.

So far, the POCOPHONE F1 is more than just a speedy smartphone. It can shoot nice to great images as well.
