  1. Why not infinix note 3 be in category of phones with best cameras and am seeing aphone like samsung galaxy j5 has the same camera with infinix note 3 of 13MP rear and 5MP selfea..

    1. It’s not always about the megapixel count. There are many 8MP cameras that outperform 13MP cameras. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the rear camera on the Infinix note 3 is not as good as the one on the J5. There are many other factors that you must consider in addition to the megapixel count
