A lot of parameters were considered before choosing the winner – the environment, caption, message, and character all play a vital role and these have nothing to do with the standard of the phone camera. However, to claim the first price in such a contest, you also need good clarity, high details, low noise and others features which are related to the camera specs. This contest shows how much effort Xiaomi put into the dual AI camera of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro.
