Part of the reason for buying an expensive phone is the camera. It is one of the first questions anyone will ask if you show off your new phone. When looking for new phones, the most important feature is the camera, and how many megapixels it has.
Interestingly though, camera quality does not wholly depend on how much megapixels it has. For instance, a 16 MP phone camera may perform better than a 20 MP camera. If you’re looking for the best camera in smartphones, we have listed some of the best camera phones out there for under 45,000.
Note, that the actual prices may differ. We have listed the launch prices of each of these phones in Pakistan.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
The Redmi Note 7 supports a huge 48 MP, f/1.8 camera that tops this list. Although it shares its position with the OPPO F11 and the Huawei P30 Lite. This is as big a camera you can find in this range. With the PDAF technology, the Note 7 can focus fast and take good shots in a snap. Moreover, the 5 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor means it can take pictures with a blurred background.
The selfie camera is not a compromise here. The 13 MP, f/2.2 selfie camera features a HDR mode which produces some stunning selfies.
Samsung Galaxy M30
Samsung M30 is the top-most smartphone in the millennium focused M-series. With an ambition to compete with the likes of Huawei and Xiomi, the M30 does a fairly good job. While the PDAF enabled 13 MP, f/1.9 main camera may not sound impressive, it can take good stills. However, the M30 distinguishes itself by featuring three cameras at the back. The main camera is aided by a 5 MP, f/2.2 ultrawide sensor and a 5 MP, f/2.2 depth sensor.
As for the selfie camera, It features an impressive 16 MP, f/2.0 HDR enabled camera. The selfie camera slightly tops of the Redmi Note 7.
Huawei P30 Lite
Like its Chinese rival, Xiomi, Huawei’s P30 Lite has a lot to prove by being a budget version of the flagship. It features a 48 MP, f/1.8 main camera with a wide image capturing capability. It may share its camera size with OPPO F11 and Note 7, but with three back sensors, it tops them all. There is an 8 MP sensor for ultra-wide shots and a 2 MP, f/2.4 depth sensor.
Coming to the front, it has one of the biggest cameras with 24 MP, f/2.0. This is the second best in this list.
OPPO F11 features a 48 MP HDR rear camera with an f/1.79 lens and addition of the 5MP depth sensor with an f/2.4 lens for excellent quality images. Moreover, the AI-powered Ultra Night Mode delivers clear pictures even in the low-light conditions.

The dual rear camera is the lowest setup in this list. The main camera is 12 MP, f/1.8. It does have its redeeming qualities with 5 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor. But to compensate, it is also the cheapest camera phone in this list.
The selfie camera is where the V11 really shines. The 25 MP, f/2.0 selfie camera makes it the biggest in this list. Other than that it supports HDR feature to capture more vivid shots.
