One of the most important things to consider when choosing a new cell phone is the strength of its camera. So many of the photographs we take, we take with our phones. From family gatherings, to vacation vistas, to concerts, to beautiful sunsets, we rely on our cell phones to help us capture the moment.
Whether you are looking to strike artistic or professional brilliance, want to capture life’s precious moments, or both, here’s a list of the current 5 best cell phone cameras to help you do just that:
5. Huawei Mate 10 Pro
Huawei has put a lot of effort into setting themselves apart with their camera quality and technology. Because of these efforts, this phone is best suited to the professional.
Huawei has combined color and monochrome sensors to help produce sharp images when up close or in low-light. The results are spectacular. And with a two day battery life, this camera is perfect for long stretches of use. The aperture mode allows you to fit more into the frame of your shot.
Because this camera has only average performance in “standard” light situations, it is not the best choice for the casual photographer. It is, however, a great choice for people with a background knowledge in, and understanding of, photography and camera settings. If you want to put time and effort into the composition of your photos, this is the phone for you.
4. LG V30
The LG V30 really showcases what LG has to offer. The quality sensors are perfect for dim light scenarios, allowing you to capture a crisp and clear image whenever you need to. The 16MP sensor is great for quick shots while the second sensor covers a wide angle, so you can capture more of the image. The selfie camera is lacking in the V30 but with professional settings that have been designed for the average user, this phone can take your cell phone photography to the next level.
3. Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus
The Galaxy S8 is one of the more popular phones are the market right now and there is little doubt that its camera capabilities are one of the reasons. The S8 fits comfortably in the hand while the S8 Plus has a longer lasting battery and a bigger screen. As mentioned above with the Pixel, the model you choose will depend on your needs.
These cameras are single sensor which means that it is difficult to pull off quality portraiture but if that is not one of your primary goals, than this phone is nearly perfect. With a wide range of camera settings available, you can master the art of photography with very little effort.
