If I charged everyone £1 to answer the question below, I would be a millionaire and retired. That’s how often I get asked this question. Nobody seems to care any more if the phone can make calls, all everyone wants to know, is the camera any good and is the camera any good in low light.
So today, I am going to answer these two questions, once and for all using examples from a selection of different smartphones.
If you want to photograph a seagull, use an iPhone 6S Plus.
If you want to photograph high flying dogs, use a LG G4.
If you want to photograph a wet dog, use a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
If you’re on a diet, then use a Vodafone Smart Ultra 6.
If you drive a Mercedes, then use a Huawei Mate S.
If you like to live on the wild side, then use a Sony Z5 Compact.
If you want to photograph flowers, then use a Samsung Galaxy S6.
If you’re a fit bastard, then use a HTC One M9.
If you’re into erections, then use a Lumia 830.
If you’re into milk, then use a Xiaomi Mi Note Pro.
If you’re into Resident Evil, then use an Amazon Fire phone.
And if you must shoot in poor low light conditions, then use an iPhone 3GS.
In summary, the cameras on smartphones have reached a stage now where the quality is good enough! But there is more to asking the question, which phone has the best camera? Are you talking about features to create a better shot, manual controls, selfie beauty modes, speed of use,4K video recording, time lapse, super night mode or what? There is so much more than to this question, and if you look at the photos from all the different phones, it highlights the point, it doesn’t really matter any more! Also, everyone shoots in different scenarios, so one answer may not be the same for another person. In the last 12 months, I have used so many different phones all of which have been extremely capable shooters. If you really want a better camera, buy a Sony RX100. It’s small and fits in your pocket with ease!
