Best Camera-Centric Smartphones

Presently smartphones are the only cameras most of us use these days and they form a part of our daily lives. We no longer use it just for calls or texting, we exchange photos, through Snapchat or Instagram.

So we set out to find the best smartphone camera. We have rounded up few flagship phones from LG, Samsung, Apple, HTC, Google, Panasonic, and Sony to see which shines out.

Apple iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 launched in late 2014, introducing an efficient camera loaded with iOS 8’s improved camera API. As with previous iPhones, Apple loaded a camera which just had 8 megapixels of resolution. That means its specific pixels are larger, which improves image quality in lot many ways, but it also means the iPhone has the lowest resolution.

LG G4

In the past, none of the smartphone makers have emphasised on enhanced camera features the way LG has. It has raised the bar with inclusion of BSI sensor plus it has Sony manufactured silicon. It has also included RAW capture, Laser autofocus and a camera app that will charm the professional photographers.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung has raised its bar to a new level. The S6 variants brags about backside-illuminated (BSI) image sensors, which it more efficient at mobilising light. The only feature that is missing is RAW shooting.

HTC One M9

When released first back in 2013, HTC One was well appreciated, the only thing lacking was a good camera. It was light, fast and had a beautiful aluminium body. The same problem was seen in M8, lack of good camera. But M9 has tackled the issue well with an awesome camera. It has a 20 megapixels of resolution, 4K video, RAW capture and BSI sensor.

Google Nexus 6

The Motorola manufactured Nexus 6 is a monster phone in almost every way. It has a giant screen, an enormous battery, and the latest Android version. Though its camera hardware disappoints you compared to the best phones available, you will have an awesome experience.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Sony is king when it comes to cameras. Loaded with camera with 20.7MP of resolution, the Z3 Compact comes with biggest camera sensors in the market.  It also has the best camera modules available in the market.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

7Panasonic’s Lumix CM1 manages to grab eye balls in the smartphone camera feature with a massive 1-inch image sensor and Leica-branded lens. Combined with the larger sensor, the Leica glass can retract more light than most of the smartphone lens.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
