The front camera also clicks on good photos.

Under normal conditions, the photos turn out to be quite good.

Keep in mind, don’t expect this Oppo smartphone to click photos in extremely low-light situations.

Regarding other camera features, the Oppo K10 gets the nightscape mode to click photos in low light. It also gets slow motion, AI beautification mode, and much more. In terms of video quality, this Oppo smartphone is capped at 1080p at 30fps.

However, as per our experience, the looks are the best part of this smartphone. We like the looks of this Oppo phone.
