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

In our camera phone tests, the Sony Xperia XZ came out neck and neck with the Galaxy S7 and LG G5. Sony’s big party piece is night time photography - the photos it takes in dim conditions are so bright that you’ll be sure the flash went off. But the Xperia XZ doesn’t need the flash - saving battery. On top of the low-light performance, you get a sharp 23MP sensor that captures colours and details beautifully.

Huawei P9

Huawei P9 best camera phone

The Huawei P9 has teamed up with the biggest name in camera lenses, Leica, to create a unique dual camera setup. With one camera shooting in black and white and the other capturing vivid colour, you get the best sharpness and most natural hues possible. The quality of these 12MP photos is truly impressive.
