With huge improvements in technology over the years, more and more of us are forsaking cameras when it comes to taking pictures, preferring instead to use our mobile phones. With the quality of these mobile cameras improving all the time it’s no wonder we are using them for everything from selfies to holiday snaps and videos to random pictures of just about anything.
With so many different models and makes on the market with a variety of different features, it can be hard to decide which one is the most suitable for your requirements. With this in mind, here is a round up of the best phone cameras available at the moment.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
With the new 36mm 12MP cameras offering larger f/1.8 apertures, both the iPhone 7’s and 7 Plus have seen big improvements on their predecessor, a 6-element lens for capturing brighter and more detailed pictures and a sharper 7-MP FaceTime camera add to the package. The iPhone 7 Plus also boasts dual rear cameras, with a digital zoom of up to 10x helping to achieve compelling depth-of-field effects. Even with 2x magnification none of the image quality is lost. Overall one of the best phone cameras on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Featuring the same dual-pixel camera as the S7 but with a much bigger canvas, the 5.5inch screen of the Edge, is perfect for those that want to take smartphone photography to the next level. The dual curved screen allows for easy access to a number of shortcuts, just by swiping from the side. The Edge benefit is, of course, that the bigger size of the S7 Edge allows for a bigger battery, lasting a good bit longer than the battery of the S7, making it one of the best big screen phone cameras around at the moment.
Huawei Honor 8
Behind the sleek design of the Honor 8 lies a dual-lens camera capable of snapping vivid pictures – pretty impressive for a phone that costs considerably less than many other models on the market. With the cameras wide aperture mode, you can adjust the focus of any shot once taken and produce an effect that is particularly effective on close-ups. Its other nifty features include a fast octa-core processor and handy smart key for performing various shortcuts.
A dual camera set-up with a secondary 8-mp lens capable of shooting at a 135-degree wide angle. You can switch with ease between the standard 16-mp camera or the wide angle, the later allowing you to capture more of the scene, therefore creating stunning landscape shots. The G5’s images still look clear despite its lower mega pixel count.
Using a back-up system like the MEEM cable is the ideal way of making sure that all those precious memories on your phone are safe. Simply use it to back up your data every time you charge your phone, and your data will be stored safely giving you peace of mind that those stunning photos, taken with your fab new phone are safe.
