Nokia seems to be the dumbest smartphone in the world, for it’s using a 1.0 micron pixel camera sensor (resulting in very poor low-light pics& videos, and found in less than RS.4,999 smartphones) instead of Sony 1.4 micron pixel camera sensor or at the worst 1.25 micron pixel sensor, for a Rs. 16,000 smartphone!!! Many people I know have skipped buying Nokia 6 series just because of it’s poor camera!
