Smartphones have never been this close to a dedicated camera. They leverage compelling picture quality and new, innovative features to deliver photography experience that is fluent, seamless, and robust. Who could have thought such compact devices could pack tremendous power?
A strip down of these smartphones depicts an eye-popping list of features. Think of high megapixel image sensors, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), laser-aided auto-focus, Phase Detection auto-focus (PDAF), and a plethora of other precious features. Each of them presents unmatched imaging performance.
Without much ado, here are the top three best camera Smartphones that are ideal for mobile photography.
Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge
Nothing says stellar camera than Samsung’s latest flagship models, Samsung Galaxy S7, and S7 Edge. In fact, they are the greatest camera phone buys you could make in the current Smartphone market. They package a raft of cutting-edge features.
Both models don IMX260 ingenious sensor by Sony complete with a f/1.7 lens. They also have super-fast auto-focus, PDAF, OIS, and other features you expect in a flagship phone. Besides, the phone itself boasts robust microprocessors, sensors, and displays that complement the camera so well that it delivers a fluid and solid photography experience. Take home: Samsung S7 and S7 Edge are excellent, if not the best, choices for mobile photography. Dual Pixel technology makes them even more sublime.
iPhone S6/S6 Plus
Apple is an undeniable leader in mobile camera designs. Their engineers have integrated what you love about a dedicated camera into iPhone S6 and S6 Plus. Both models are truly an amazing work of art. Beside fluid performance, the two devices boast impressive cameras. Of course, the new and innovative 12MP sensor by Sony is a big leap from the last generation 8MP iSight camera. Sony IMX 315 is complemented well by iOS10 and excellent Apple algorithms that blend colors and contrast levels in a truly magical way. Though both devices are excellent, iPhone 6S works better in low light environment.
Sony Xperia Z5
Sony Xperia Z5 is somewhat Holy Grail in the world of mobile photography. That in itself isn’t new. Sony phones have always been distinguished for lucid and top-quality photos and videos. Of course, Sony is the designer, maker, and deployer of a top-notch line of camera sensors.
In Sony Xperia Z5, Sony brings their A-game. Sony couples the amazing 23MP Exmor RS Mobile image sensor with DIS technology, exposure compensation, and 4K video rendering. It isn’t surprising that photos and videos taken with Sony Xperia Z5 are life-like and crisp. Plus, focusing with Z5 is a snap.
