According to industry experts, for consumers, the camera continues to be a major smartphone purchase determinant.

“With smartphones increasingly getting homogenised in terms of specs, smartphone brands are focusing on imaging, and more importantly, megapixels as a key marketing differentiator and attention grabber,” Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR, told IANS.

The fact is that the best camera phones from Apple (iPhones) and Google (Pixel) never boast of higher megapixels but one can vouch for the ultra-superior and natural qualities in photos clicked on their devices.

“For the average consumer on the street, it will be tough to distinguish the difference in image quality, purely on the basis of higher megapixels. That said, many consumers may get swayed by the notion that the higher the megapixels, the better the device,” he emphasised.
