The Xiaomi Redmi 4A packs a 13-megapixel primary rear camera with contrast focus, LED flash and f/2.2 aperture. The sensor can capture videos up to 1080p (full-HD) at 30 frames per second (fps).
The stock camera app in Redmi 4A just about okay. There are 17 live filters are in the app and we found some of them to be very intersting, you can find few camera samples of the same in image gallery below. Other than that the manual mode lets users adjust white balance and ISO. You need to click on modes and then gear icon on the top right corner to get to camera settings.
In daylight or nicely lit conditions, we found that the rear 13-megapixel camera of Redmi 4A performs very well. The shots were mostly sharp and had good amount of detailing. The colour reproduction was fine too and shots colours looked close to natural. Overall, the image quality of daylight shots come quite decent in auto mode. However you can get even better detailing in HDR mode, but it takes a little bit longer to capture and process, so it is possible that you’d mostly end up with blurry images.
In our lab test, the center sharpness in perfectly lit conditions was just about okay. Overall the shot looked nice. The fibers detailing and edge sharpness wasn’t good though. About the low-light performance, the shots were fairly average and had very less detailing and more noise. The center sharpness, edges or even fiber detailing and colours were poor, but having said that we were not expecting it to be great either.
Overall, we feel that the Xiaomi Redmi 4A’s primary 13-megapixel camera is probably one of the best you can get on a phone in this price bracket.
