The quality of a camera is one of the defining aspects of a new mobile phone. A lot of people will choose a phone depending on the power of its camera. This is why all big mobile phone manufacturers invest millions of dollars in the development of this phone aspect.
If you are one of the people that buy mobile phones for the power of their camera, then you should understand one important thing, and that is that a phone camera can’t replace a real device. No professional photographer will choose a mobile phone over a real camera due to differences in quality of the images they create. A plethora of other things creates the gap between those two products.
Devices that have powerful cameras
The best camera on the phone can be found on Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. It has one rear and one front camera. The rear one is better as it is 12MP + 12MP. Everyone reveres this product due to the f/1.5 aperture on the primary sensor. This makes it an excellent device for taking low-light images. A good thing about this expensive product is the quality and the number of features it offers.
The second place when it comes to camera quality has to go to the Huawei P20 Pro with its three-camera setup that adds up to a combined 68MP. This smart camera setup uses three separate devices with power than goes from 40MP, over 20MP to 8MP. The algorithm combines these three cameras to create images with superior quality to the majority of products that the competition has.
Devices that use software to improve pictures
Some mobile phones manufacturers use superior software to enhance images taken by the camera. Google Pixel 2 duo and Pixel 2 XL both have 12.2MP rear cameras, which are average at best. But what these products have is software that takes a lot of pictures in a matter of one or two seconds and then combines them to create the final product you see on the phone.
This tech allows the device to remove oddities and faults from the picture by replacing them with more unambiguous elements from other frames the device captures.
