One of the best things of this Redmi Note 7 is it comes with a 48-megapixel main camera which is best for a mid-range phone. You will not get any problem while capturing photos no matter day or night. The picture that is captured from this Redmi Note 7 is amazing even in the night. If you compare the picture from this phone and any other expensive phone, you will not find any huge differences between them.

If you want to capture a picture at night then I recommend you to use night mode because it will give more detail to the picture. While capturing a normal picture it takes 2.4 sec whereas it takes 3 sec to capture an HDR picture.
