Personally, I was expecting decent performance from the 12MP (f/1.75)+13MP (f/2.6) Zeiss branded dual camera setup on the rear of the Nokia 7 Plus. Truth be told, the performance of the shooter is good enough, but it proves to be a rather disappointing case when it comes to video recording or low-light performance.
The Nokia 7 Plus is capable of capturing decent shots in well-lit conditions. Images look sharp, and the color reproduction was mostly spot on. There is a great amount of detail in the images as well. However, it is worth noting that the Nokia 7 Plus’ camera tends to oversaturate colors. Now, while that does make the shots captured “social-media ready”, there is a certain group of users out there, including me, who’d prefer accurate colors. Nonetheless, that is more of a personal choice.
As for the low-light performance of the device, the Nokia 7 Plus is mostly a hit and a miss. There were moments when I was able to click some really great shots in low-light conditions, but just moments later, the camera seemed to disappoint me. The single f/1.75 sensor certainly manages to capture light decently, even in dark locations. However, there is an evident amount of noise in the images. If you have a decent amount of light, the Nokia 7 Plus is great. Sadly, in low-light conditions, the camera’s performance is just sub-par, which is quite astonishing, since I expected better low-light performance from the Zeiss branded camera setup.
Now, thanks to the dual-camera setup, the Nokia 7 Plus allows the user to capture portrait shots. Personally, I haven’t really been a fan of the so-called bokeh or portrait mode on smartphones, simply due to the fact that it quite evidently seems to be a software gimmick. With the Nokia 7 Plus as well, my opinion of Portrait mode remains the same. The edge detection is fine and the camera is able to identify the subject very well. However, the blurring seems quite unnatural, and in some cases, sports the oil-painting effect as well. That being said, for its price, the portrait mode on the Nokia 7 Plus is still good, and should easily satisfy the needs of most consumers.
As for video recording, the Nokia 7 Plus is a huge disappointment. Nokia shamelessly states that the camera setup comes with EIS for better video stabilization, but truth be told, I could experience none of it. Yes, the colors captured are nice, and there is sufficient detailing in the videos. Heck, the Nokia 7 Plus is capable of recording at 4K UHD resolution as well. Sadly though, the lack of any kind of visible stabilization in videos, especially at this price point, is a huge let-down. We also tried shooting 1080p videos from the Nokia 7 Plus, hoping that EIS would kick in but well, it did not. The results were still pretty much the same, which is definitely disappointing. Take a look at the video sample below:
The Nokia 7 Plus packs in a great camera hardware both on the front as well as the rear end of the device. In well-lit conditions, the Nokia 7 Plus is great, maybe even too great. However, the lack of any significant stabilization in the video and the sub-par low-light performance is what is the biggest let-down of the device. On the other hand, the front camera on the Nokia 7 Plus is pretty good, so there’s that.
