A good camera is a prerequisite for anyone buying a smartphone today. We keep getting asked by our readers to recommend smartphones at every price point that can take great photos. Phones priced well under Rs. 20,000 such as the Moto G5 Plus (Review), Xiaomi Mi Max 2(Review), and Oppo F3 (Review) can take good photos in daylight but usually can’t match the same level of quality in low light. Samsung claims that the Galaxy On Max is the answer to this common problem.
The smartphone was unveiled in India last month and supports Samsung Pay Mini, the company’s own mobile payments service. A few of its other highlights are the front flash, f/1.7 aperture, and Android Nougat. The Samsung Galaxy On Max has been priced aggressively to take on heavyweights in the sub-Rs. 20,000 price segment. Can Samsung pull off this impressive feat? We find out.
