Quick thoughts

Vivo V15 Pro arguably has the most versatile and capable camera at this price point. Its 48MP main camera works well in almost all lighting conditions. It shoots images with plenty of details in daylight and some indoor scenes.

We were surprised it can even perform well in challenging light conditions. The Super Night Mode of this handset is also one of the best today that can shoot images with less noise and well-controlled light most of the time.

It is not perfect though, some shots could be overexposed if you are not yet familiar with its camera controls.

The secondary wide camera is also impressive. Even at just 8MP, the quality is respectable even in low light. Obviously, its shots would be softer than the primary camera though. The night mode feature won’t work with the wide lens as well.

The third camera is a depth camera that you can use for portrait shots. If you get it right, it can produce impressive looking bokeh shots.

Its 32MP selfie shooter one of the best right now. Without face beauty, shots are highly detailed with accurate colors. Yes, even in dim lighting conditions. It has an interesting flash as well.

We will try more of its features soon. Stay tuned for our full review.

But so far, we are quite impressed with its cameras for photography and selfies.
