We’re going to glaze over most of the specs and delve into what is at the heart of this smartphone, it’s cameras. It’s main shooter, as you may have read above, is a 21-megapixel camera with what their calling a fast camera sensor, a f-stop of f/2.0 for pretty solid depth of field in your shots, 4K video capability, optic image stabilization, and phase detection autofocus.
