The BlackBerry KEYone sports an 8-megapixel front facing camera with an aperture of f/2.2. Once again, low light performance with regards to colour reproduction, contrast levels and noise is fairly good, but we do see a certain loss of detail. Since there is no autofocus, its one less thing to worry about. At arm’s length, you will be able to get in focus shots without worrying. The lens is well controlled when it comes to distortion as well, so there would be no reason to worry about your face looking out of proportion.

Over the course of reviewing as many phones as we have, it has become increasingly clear that front facing cameras will never allow for a JPG file to retain much texture. The images are softened too, mostly keeping in mind that these days, we like to have any imperfection in our skin to be smoothened out. What’s good about the front facing camera is that not only is it quick to fire off the first shot, but it doesn’t take a lot of time in between shots either. Don’t expect it to shoot like a machine gun, but you can rest assured that if you’re trying to capture a candid moment in between selfies, the front camera should be able to do it.
