Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge best camera phone

With a big 12MP image sensor, Dual Pixel autofocusing technology to capture sharp photos every time, and an ultra-wide angle lens that lets in more light, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge 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 faster than you can with any other phone.

iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 7 Plus features an amazing 12MP dual lens camera. One of the sensors is a wide-angle, capturing more than ever, while the other is telephoto - offering x2 optical zoom. There's also a brand new depth of field effect coming to the smartphone soon via a software update, which will give your photos a more professional look.

Pixel, a phone by Google

Pixel is the first smartphone exclusively created by Google. It has a 12.3MP camera on board, which has received much acclaim throughout the mobile industry. If that’s not enough, it’s also the first smartphone to feature Google Assistant, Android’s first little helper with a bit of personality.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

This new Sony smartphone - fresh out the gates from Mobile World Congress 2017 – has one of the best smartphone sensors available. The Xperia XZ Premium has a 19MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. But the real headline is the fact you can film super slow-motion HD video at 960 frames p/sec.

The rest of the phone is pretty impressive, too, with a 5.46-inch 4K HDR display and IP68 water and dust-protection.

Huawei P10

The Huawei P10 is a direct follow-up to 2016’s P9 - the first phone to team up with the biggest name in camera lenses, Leica. And this year is no different. With one lens shooting in black and white and the other capturing vivid colour, you get razor sharpness and really natural hues.

Spec-wise, the dual camera is made up of one 12MP and one 20MP lens, working seamlessly together.
