Which Phone Camera is Best for Photography?
by Eguaogie Eghosa May 29, 2021 Views (252)
Phones are being released into the market at such a pace that we can hardly keep up with or have time to get used to before there is an announcement of another model or series. Take, for instance, the Apple iPhone series or the Tecno Camon series; these phones are getting smarter by the day. The advent of smartphones has ushered in an era in which people can take pictures as they want when they want.
Smartphones have effectively replaced point-and-shoot cameras, and many outperform them. These portable computers have become our main cameras, making photo quality a priority when picking a new smartphone. 

It doesn’t matter whether you're looking for a high-end camera phone to rival a professional camera, you want a great quality selfie camera for social media content, or you simply want a great companion that you can rely on for beautiful family snaps; there is always a camera that meets your expectations.

The best camera phones are pushing the boundaries of technology and are often capable of delivering better results than the 'conventional' camera that are used professionally. As screens get larger, camera phone sensors get more advanced and chipsets get more powerful. 
The best camera phones don't just deliver pure power – they're also a perfect package of convenience, with countless apps at your fingertips. However, one of the most impressive aspects of these handsets is their megapixel count. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has an impressive 108MP sensor – a megapixel count that most of the best professional cameras are nowhere near!

If you’re keen on taking pictures or video with your phone, or you simply want to know that you’ve got a smartphone that’s great for taking holiday snaps, then this piece will help you make up your mind on which smartphone is best for you.

It is difficult to recommend one particular phone camera as every phone seems to have one unique feature or the other that makes them stand out from their rivals. Below are three of the best phone cameras you can use for photography.

1. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series
The Samsung Galaxy Note line has always been known for great performance, amazing designs, and outstanding camera quality. It’s no surprise the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are also some of the best camera phones the industry has to offer.

If you are not put off by the price, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the obvious choice for gamers. It sports a huge 6.9-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 12GB of RAM. The cameras on this model are also top of the line, with a triple camera setup led by a wide-angle 108MP sensor. This phone also has a 12MP periscope zoom camera and another 12MP ultra-wide shooter.

2. Samsung Galaxy S21 Series
If you want the ultimate photography experience you may want to go for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. It comes with four cameras, making it the most versatile of the trio. This device also features laser autofocus and 100x hybrid zoom! Not to mention it’s also a beast in terms of all other specs.

3. The Apple iPhone 12 Series
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying Apple makes some of the best camera phones you can buy. These include the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Of the lot, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is perhaps, the king of the bunch, but as expected, it’s also the most expensive. It offers the best camera, but the differences aren’t huge. 

The iPhone 12 Pro is one of the best camera phones currently available, featuring an impressive triple camera unit, including an ultra-wide f/2.4 camera, a wide f/1.6 camera, and a telephoto f/2 camera. Meanwhile, the front-facing TrueDepth camera features a 12MP sensor as well. There are plenty of new features on the iPhone 12 Pro, such as a LiDAR scanner – which will mean faster focusing in low light situations. The iPhone 12 Pro will also be able to use the new Apple ProRAW file format, which means users will be able to combine the great computational photography effects Apple is known for with the power of RAW files. Combined with the addition of 5G and the new Ceramic Shield display that has a 4x better drop performance, you just can't go wrong with the new iPhone 12 Pro!

So, there you have it; if you’re in doubt as to which smartphone camera would be most suitable for photography, any of the three listed above is sure to give you the best experience in photography. But of the lot, I would recommend the iPhone 12 Pro as the best bet in shooting photography.
