Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition Camera review
Source: DxOMark English
A solid performance in all categories across both our photo and video tests ensures a top-ten ranking for Xiaomi’s latest device in its budget-friendly Redmi line. That’s an impressive result, and aside from some minor quibbles, the K30 Pro Zoom is capable of image quality very close to the best we’ve tested in many areas. The quality of zoom and bokeh shots is particularly impressive, and the main camera offers consistently good exposure and color in all lighting conditions.

All in all, the Redmi K30 Pro as a Snapdragon 865 flagship. The zoom version can be said to have the strongest imaging system at the same price. And a high-quality 60Hz refresh rate screen, which forms the basis of K30 Pro’s strong competitiveness. Like the previous-generation K20 Pro, the Redmi K30 Pro is Redmi’s flagship with the ultimate price/performance ratio, so you can buy with confidence.
