The budget smartphone Redmi 1S introduced in India last month at a price of Rs. 5,999 comes with 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 (HD) IPS display and 8MP rear camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture for 1080p video recording. It also houses a front 1.6MP camera. Nowadays, when a customer buys a smartphone, the camera features are considered very carefully besides other features. In this age of social networking postings and clicking pictures at the spur of the moment, the smartphone with good camera proves quite handy. You will see lot of people snapping around you to post them on Facebook etc.
To test the camera quality of Redmi 1S, we have clicked various images in different environments and some of them from a distance of 15 metres to see the quality. To our great surprise the quality of these clicks are quite impressive. We reproduce below some images clicked:

If you can achieve above results in a smartphone, which has not pinched your pocket and you have shelled out just Rs. 6,000 to satiate your clicking habits then one can say it is a great deal. You can also snap selfies with front camera of Redmi 1S and the quality of those images will not be as good as of rear camera, but for a price of Rs. 6K, you should not expect more than that.
