When I unboxed the new Huawei Y7 Prime, I was skeptical about the cameras. A combination of 13MP+2MP at the back didn’t sound that good to me.

Well, I didn’t think a 2MP camera was something to be proud of. What was it meant to do? I didn’t know what to expect. But at the same time, I didn’t expect anything worth talking about.

Yet, as I played with the camera, I realised there’s something worth writing about. The device doesn’t really stand out in the camera department when compared to many other phones, but in some instances, especially portrait mode (which Huawei aptly calls “wide aperture”), you get incredible pictures.

So in this post, I’ll share pictures taken in different conditions by the Y7 Prime. And let you judge for yourself.

First here are things I like/love from both front and back cameras:

  • I like that wide aperture mode works well both in low light and well lit conditions.
  • I love that colours are sharp and accurate-ish when you view the final picture taken by the cameras.
  • I like that it doesn’t over saturate or over-sharpen anything.
  • I love that even when you zoom and take a photo, there’s a processing that happens to ensure detail and sharpness of image is maintained.

Portrait (Wide Aperture Mode):

What I really love about this mode is that you can control amount of blur even after taking the pic. You can choose where focus should be and where to blur after you’ve taken the pic to make sure pic looks as good as possible.
