Camera and Multimedia
Nothing comes perfect in any device. Though the Pioneer P2 has good hardware but the camera is not very strong. The lack of autofocus makes the pictures actually very dull. Though the quality of the images is serviceable but they are not of high quality which is a drawback of the phone besides having so many pluses. Low light photography is very poor and day light gives somewhat acceptable pictures. The same happens with the video quality. The videos are quite too jerky as the camera doesn’t have any shake proof software within it. The front camera is also not free of flaws. It gives poor quality fallacies and video calls. For people who are actually photography lovers, this device is not for them.
