In this article, I give you my list of top 5 mobile phones with the best cameras. Given that today’s mobile phones are much more than just communication devices, we decided to address one aspect or if you want the performance of mobile phones which is often a very important factor for users when choosing a phone.
It is a camera that almost every phone has today. Although in the past some (or many) mobile phone users were guided by the thesis of “if I want to make a phone call I will buy a phone, and if I want to take a picture I will buy a camera”, with the development of technology this story no longer drinks water.
Phones are so advanced that you can have a communication device in the same camera, and an extremely high-performance camera that can easily stand side by side with the commercial cameras we find on the market.
In this field, of course, a little more exclusive smartphones (as much money as much music as our people would say) in which high-quality cameras are built. So let’s see which are the devices that users and experts around the world have pointed out as the 5 best…
Apple iPhone 4s. With its 4s model, Apple has set an extremely high standard for the competition, which, if it wanted to “stay in the game”, had to compete with an adequate response to a camera of this quality.
The iPhone 4s has an excellent 8 MP camera that is capable of producing images of 3264 x 2448 pixels. The camera itself has a 5-element lens with an aperture of F2 / 4, and it was made by Sony. This camera takes only 1.1 seconds to take the first picture, and only half a second between each subsequent photo taken.
The results of this camera are exceptional, the colors of the images are vivid, the sharpness of the images is also flawless as well as the white balance. Images taken with this camera are rich in detail even when shooting an object that is in the shadows.
The iPhone 4s camera also has a 1080p HD video option at 30 frames per second. The camera also has an LED flash for shooting in low light conditions.
Samsung Galaxy S II. The Galaxy SII also features an 8MP camera that captures images with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. The camera of this camera makes the images on your display simply “come to life” and as far as the options and possibilities of the camera are concerned, this model offers you practically everything.
It has autofocus, touch focus, scene modes, face detection, smile, or blinking on the person you want to take pictures, geotagging and digital image stabilization (these are just some, the most interesting to us).
The images taken with this camera abound in “fine” details and colors, but also in good contrast. In short, this camera produces images with extremely few processing artifacts (traces of image sharpening).
Another outstanding camera performance of this model is the ability to record FullHD video from 1080p at 30fps. The Galaxy SII is equipped with an LED flash.
HTC EVO 3D has not one but 2 5MP cameras on its back that allow it to produce 2D images in full 2560×1920 pixels, and stereoscopic 3D images with maximum quality of 2MP. This camera has a slider that changes the function of the camera depending on the image you want to take (2D or 3D).
The camera of this device also has the option of face detection and geotagging. Although the key feature or, let’s say, the great point of this camera is 3D imaging and recording, it seems that adding a 3D option to this phone (otherwise an option that few cameras have) was to the detriment of the quality of “ordinary” images.
The videos that this camera makes are HD recordings with 720p at 30fps. The colors in the pictures/videos are vivid, the depth and contrast are levels and it also has a dual-LED flash, so we conclude that the camera of this camera is of sufficient quality to take one place on our list of the 5 best photo-mobile cameras.
Nokia N8. This camera has an impressive 12MP camera, which is capable of producing images with 4000 × 3000 pixels. The optics with which this device is equipped are Carl Zeiss, and that is a name that speaks for itself.
The options this camera handles are autofocus, face detection, Geotagging… Any aspect we touch on this camera is exceptional, be it color, contrast, the richness of detail, or taking pictures in low light where this camera is also up to the task.
In addition to taking photos, this camera is definitely the narrowest choice when it comes to 720p video (1280 × 720 pixels) at 25 frames per second. The optical zoom of this camera is also exceptional when making HD images. The N8 is equipped with a Xenon flash for filming in low light.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a device that users around the world rate as the best device of this company in recent years. Sony Ericsson has built into this camera an exceptional 8MP camera with autofocus that is capable of producing images of 3264 × 2448 pixels of exceptional quality.
As with the previously mentioned models, this one is equipped with numerous functions such as Touch focus, image stabilization, geotagging, face detection, and smile detection.
HD Videos taken with this camera are 720p quality at 30 fps with continuous autofocus. The quality of the images, as well as the video, is exceptional, with a wealth of “fine” details, vivid colors, and excellent contrast. To support taking photos in low light, this camera has an LED flash.
These models have received all the praise from their users as well as the blogging community. It is this sphere that is most authoritative to award such a title to certain devices, and that led them to the Top 5 models of mobile phones with the best cameras on the market.
If you expected us to single one out as the best you were wrong. We will not do that for the simple reason that all these devices are exceptional, and only the finesse separates them from each other, so we will leave the final judgment and choice to you.
