What are the best smartphones with the best cameras in 2017? Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving us some very useful tips. Throughout the years, the number of megapixels has become something that most people use when it comes to determining the quality of smartphone camera. Back in 2007, the high-end mobile phones had cameras with 2MP, while in 2014, 66% of the smartphones had an 8MP camera.
The photos taken with smartphones are now better, so you would think that the camera is indeed better if it has more megapixels. Well, that doesn’t have to always be the case. There are many factors that contribute to the quality of the camera. Besides megapixels, the size of the image sensor, aperture and lots of other factors matter. Recently, the smartphone manufacturers started using dual cameras. Difference isn’t that significant, but it turns out dual cameras have some advantages. Each manufacturer has its own technology when it comes to dual cameras, but it all comes down to the same thing.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three smartphones from their list. The first smartphone is Xiaomi Mi 6. (Rear Camera: Dual 12 MP, f/1.8, and f/2.6, )ront Camera: 8 MP). If you want a quality smartphone for cheap, just buy Xiaomi Mi 6 and you’ll get everything you need. Released in April, this 5.15 inches smartphone has an Octa-core processor, 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage and Dual SIM.
The next smartphone is Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017). (Rear Camera: 16 MP, f/1.9, front Camera: 16 MP, f/1.9) Samsung decided to upgrade 2015’s A7, giving it more of everything in 2017. You’ll get a 5.7 inches screen smartphone with Octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The camera was largely upgraded, but it still isn’t capable recording in more than 1080p@30fps. The last one is HTC U Ultra. (Rear Camera: 12 MP, f/1.8, front Camera: 16 MP) If you are not keen on Samsung phones, but still want a 5.7 inches screen smartphone, then consider HTC U Ultra. It, unfortunately, comes with just a Quad-Core processor, but it still packs respectable specs under the hood including 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Also, its display is something special.
