You don’t need a DSLR to take good photos. All you need is to be at the right place at the right time with a camera phone that can do the job just as well. No smartphone ships without a camera these days; even the most humble phones have cameras that can deliver great image quality, some even in low light. The best thing about carrying a budget camera phone is the part where DSLRs are pretty much useless, selfies. If we think about it, selfies have become a legitimate subset of photography with the rise of Instagram and other social media platforms. Also, most of these camera phones are not expensive either. You can get a really good camera phone within 10,000 Rupees quite easily. Here are 5 camera phones you should definitely check out and possibly pick up.
