Phones are more than communication devices--they are useful for multitasking and friendly devices for capturing special moments. So most of the time, it is now a habit to check the quality of smartphone cameras. Mobile photography is now a trend these days since phones are easy to carry compared to bulky DSLRs.
Many companies are currently offering devices with great lenses and software features to attract more buyers. Nowadays, it is expected to get a high-resolution combination, a long telephoto focal length lens, and ultra-wide-angle when purchasing more expensive smartphone cameras.
Different brands now offer camera resolutions as high as 128 MP, together with additional elements, such as pixel binning, which significantly increases quality. Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, and other Chinese manufacturers are currently on the lead when it comes to developing smartphone camera technology.
However, the United States companies, such as Apple and Google, are able to keep up. Samsung's Galaxy flagships are also included in smartphones with great cameras, delivering some of the best overall quality.
With all these brands, it is hard to choose which one to buy. Here are the things that you need to look for when purchasing a new phone with a high-quality camera to help you with that.
Important things to look for in a smartphone camera
Before purchasing a smartphone with a great camera, you must remember that you need to read the product's review first to know if the camera sensor and software work well together.
The lens should have a particularly low aperture of f/1.8 or less to allow enough light. On the other hand, the smartphone's shutter release time should be extra short, and the autofocus should be as fast as possible.
To make sure your images look sharp, even if the natural or artificial light outside is not enough, you should check if the device has an optical image stabilizer (OIS). This feature is also useful when taking photos of a moving object.
