The Best Of This Years Camera Phones
Smartphone manufacturers these days are greatly concerned about cameras because that is one attribute of a phone which modern users are very concerned about. It is, indeed a tedious process to dig out which one’s the best. To minimise your effort, we have managed to assort some of the finest camera smartphones available in the market right now.
iPhone 7 Plus
If there is any camera available today on a smartphone which can easily outperform any Android phone, it is the iPhone 7 Plus. With a dual 12MP primary camera, where one gets to use a 28mm wide angle lens (f/1.8 aperture) and a 56mm zoom lens (f/2.8 aperture), it takes brilliant photos in all lighting conditions. The camera is packed with features like the Live Photo, Quad LED true tone flash light and Optical image stabilisation. It is efficient of 2x optical zoom with upto 10x. It has a 7MP front facing camera that features Retina Flash. Camera aside, the phone has an uncompromised display of 5.5 inches, Lightning EarPods, a Lightning-to-3.5mm audio adapter, a home button that uses Taptic vibrations, a smooth iOS complimented by 3 GB RAM available in 32/128/256 GB storage capacity and a non-removable Li-Ion 2900 mAh battery. It is also dust and water resistant. An additional Bokeh feature, which is an upcoming update for the camera unit will certainly make this smartphone the best in the market today.
Google Pixel XL
Albeit Google’s Pixel XL cannot be compared to the iPhone 7 Plus on all levels, but when it comes to detailing, this smartphone is the best. The phone captures great images during daylight conditions. You may actually prefer this phone over iPhone 7 Plus depending on your colour inclinations. The phone has a 1/2.3” 12.3MP rear camera with CMOS sensor, Auto Focus, HDR, panorama, Geo-Tagging and Face Detection. With an 8MP frontal shooter, the phone can record 4K video at 30 fps and 1080p slow-motion at 120fps and 720p at 240fps. However, the camera of the phone faces challenge in low light conditions. In terms of performance, the smartphone is a beast. Running on Android Nougat 7.0, it offers flawless assimilation of Google’s Daydream View VR headset. Other specifications include a 4GB RAM, 32/128GB storage, 3,450mAh battery, 5.5-inch Quad-HD AMOLED screen and a finger print reader.
Despite incorporating UltraPixel cameras in its flagship devices, HTC has been unable to achieve success until now. However, the 12MP UltraPixel camera in HTC 10 will change that notion as it has successfully brought out one of the best cameras available in the market today. The camera uses the Sony IMX377 Exmor R sensor which is supported by Optical Image Stabilisation and features RAW support. The smartphone produces great quality images both in broad daylight and low lighting conditions. The 5MP frontal shooter has the same f/1.8 aperture as the rear camera and an OIS, making it a smartphone with the best front facing camera for sure. Although, you may find some noise under low light settings, it could be easily ignored. The HTC 10 is power packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, offers 4GB RAM in 32/64GB variants, has a display of 5.2 inches and a non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery and runs on Android v6.0.1.
OnePlus has now replaced its old 13MP camera to 16MP with Sony IMX298 sensor. The camera can now take good pictures in various light conditions. The sensor in the camera is supported by Phase Detection Autofocus and Optical Image Stabilisation, hence making a strong place for it in the market. The camera can shoot 2160p at 30fps and 720p at 120fps. Performance wise, OnePlus 3T provides an excellent service; thanks to Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, a whopping 6GB RAM in its 64/28 variants, non-removable Li-Ion 3400 mAh and Android 6.0. The specifications clearly state the reason behind OnePlus’ growing popularity amongst buyers.
