Best Camera Smartphones

By Ruchi Sharma


If we think of that one thing that has become a necessity apart from eating and sleeping for all of us, the thing that tops the list is definitely a SMARTPHONE! Be it getting on work related calls or making your child attend online school or something as petty as online grocery shopping, life without a smartphone seems impossible, especially when work from home has become the new normal. And it
has successfully occupied the place of a camera also in our lives.

Nowadays, you would hardly find people who invest on cameras separately, rather they just prefer to buy a good smartphone that not only has an amazing battery life but offers a splendid camera with excellent picture quality as well. It won’t be wrong to say that some of these mobiles actually offer nearly professional quality photographs when used with certain filters from apps. The love for taking selfies has also gone up thanks to the front cameras of the smartphones!

What is the most important factor when you want to buy a smartphone with a good camera is generally the megapixels (or MP) of the inbuilt camera. Higher MP generally means better picture quality. Though they are mostly priced on a very high side but the features that they offer go way beyond the camera quality! Of course, if you are a passionate photographer, nothing can replace the good old DSLRs or
professional cameras but meanwhile we got a list of some amazing smartphones of 2021 that offer cameras with enviable picture quality.

1. Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max

When we talk about picture quality nothing beats the iPhones. Even though some of their models offered cameras with much less megapixels than other smartphones, but their picture quality was still far better. You can even buy lower models of iPhone as they are priced quite moderately and at the same time the picture quality is amazing.
This model offers a massive 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display along with a fast processor. The A12 Bionic Chip is definitely amazing. The battery life is also great. Talking about the camera, it offers an amazing triple set camera with 12-megapixel F1.6 primary camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 12-megapixel ultra- wide camera along with a LiDAR sensor. The front camera though is only 12 MP but the picture quality is great even at night. Not only that, it offers many extra features for some special effects and improved photography performance. Though it is definitely top of the class when concerned to pricing (Rs. 1.25 lakh+ for 256 GB model) but it offers amazing features.

  • It offers 5x optical zoom range;
  • LiDAR Scanner for improved AR experiences, Night mode portraits
  • 12MP True Depth front camera with Night mode, 4K Dolby Vision HDR recording
  • Industry-leading IP68 water resistance

The only downside is there is no scope for external memory card in iPhone so if you are fond of keeping all your photos at one place then you need to invest on an iPhone with good memory (like 256 GB) and simultaneously pay for extra memory on iCloud (That is where you can store all your photos as backup). The newer model of iPhone, iPhone 13 is also expected to unveil next week.

2. Vivo X60 Pro Plus
