The 5 best camera phones

It’s been just nine months since we last created a list of the best camera phones, but because mobile technology advances so quickly, none of the devices from that list have survived on this one. So let’s take a look at which smartphones take the best photos right now.

Samsung Galaxy S6Samsung Galaxy S6

With a big 16MP image sensor, optical image stabilisation to keep the camera steady, and an ultra-wide angle lens that lets in more light, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is an awesome camera phone. Photos are pin sharp, brightly coloured and full of fine detail in both bright spots and shade. And you can launch the camera and take a shot in just 0.7 seconds, faster than any other phone.

LG G4LG G4

LG pulled out all the stops for the camera in the G4. It's not just great because its 13MP sensor captures minute details and perfect colours, it's also because the app gives you full manual controls, letting you shoot like a pro.

Sony Xperia Z3+Sony Xperia Z3+

If you like taking photos while on a night out, the Sony Xperia Z3 is the camera phone for you. The photos it takes in dim conditions are so bright that you’ll be sure the flash went off. But the Z3 doesn’t need the flash, which saves battery and means you don’t blind your friends. This incredible performance is probably down to the phone’s BIONZ image processor, which is so powerful that Sony uses it in its top digital cameras.

The new HTC One M9 takes huge 20MP photos. These detailed shots can then be edited using a powerful suite of tools built into the phone. That means you can effortlessly create stunning, unique images that’ll really impress your friends. And round the front, HTC has used its unique UltraPixel technology to create a top selfie camera. UltraPixels let in about three times more light than normal ones, making photos brighter and more detailed.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 takes some of the best photos here, but its real standout feature is that the big screen and unique S Pen stylus make editing your shots super simple. The S Pen gives you really fine control and the Quad HD display lets you see exactly what you’re doing.
