Newbie here. Earlier this week I used a colleagues iPhone X and was blown away by the quality of the camera photos. I big step up from my iPhone 5c
I can't quite justify close to $2k on buying an iPhone X, but I was wondering if there is any newbie-friendly camera in the sub $1k bracket that would take similar quality photos. I image I could get close to iPhone X quality elsewhere, but without paying the premium of having the Apple logo plastered on it.
Any pointers on the main specs I should be looking for? I won't be taking action shots, mainly outdoor and indoor photos of nature and people.
