Auto light correctionDevices with auto light correction have the ability to detect and corrects for poor lighting. Usually this consists of low-light boost, exposure adjustment, and color boosting, so that the subject looks good even in dim or harsh lighting.

Adjustable field of viewCameras with an adjustable FOV allow users to set view angles depending on their needs. A wider FOV captures a larger visible area, but with fewer details. A more narrow field of view captures less but in more detail and is often used for recording content at a distance.

Optics
Megapixels (main camera)The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
