Smartphone Cameras: A Guide
iPhone 6S Plus

This device comes out on top, in terms of camera power at least. The 12-megapixel sensor takes great images in all light conditions, with vivid colors and bright contrast. It can capture skin tones with amazing accuracy, so is a favorite for all happy snappers. Both front and back sensors give an accurate light reproduction, with a multitude of camera settings. The auto focus is both fast and clear, allowing you to get clear images every time.

Samsung S6 Active

This smartphone is a rugged device that can withstand liquid submersion, or a tumble down a flight of stairs, so it rates highly in the durability takes. This camera can operate underwater for short periods (we tested up to thirty minutes) without a problem. The volume button and keys can be used for shutter control, which makes taking good, clear photos, a breeze.

SONY Xperia Z5

This phone has a rear camera with a whopping 23 megapixel sensor on the rear camera, matched with an awesome array of image altering settings, for both still frame and video modes.

Best video options

If it is a video you are after, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge plus. This device runs at video resolutions of 4k, and captures audio at the same rate, making it a good choice for video buffs. The rear camera boasts an impressive, 12 megapixel sensor, with a slightly lower one on the front.


Replacing the much loved LG4, the specs are impressive. A 5.7-inch screen with resolution up to 2560 × 1440, makes this device really stand out. The camera settings include many manual options that include video, so it is the perfect tool for all camera work. The video editing software is certainly good enough to produce a professional job that anyone would be happy with.

Nexus 6P

This phone makes it on the list for its amazing ability with low light resolutions, giving you the perfect night shot device. With a sensor of 12.3 megapixels, the resolution is as you would expect with a high end device. The dual tone flash allows a variety of settings to suit low light shooting, giving bright, clear shots every time.

Taking cameras to new heights

Many of today’s hi-end smartphones have more camera facilities than some SLR cameras, making it easy to compete with the professionals, by taking a wide array of photographs, with a clarity never before seen in a smartphone camera. Of course, one must not forget to insure such a valuable item, and there are online services that offer gadget and mobile phone insurance for all makes and models. So shop around, and find the perfect cover for that expensive addition to your digital device list.
