Gone are the days when you had to carry along two devices — a phone and a camera, anytime you wanted to go out and click some pictures. Today, several brands are coming up with smartphone devices equipped with the best cameras that can rival any DSLR. These devices not just deliver powerful shots but are very convenient, owing to the numerous apps right at your fingertips. Take a look at two such phones.
1. Google Pixel 4
It is easily one of the top phones with the best smartphone cameras available. Google Pixel 4 has an excellent, ultra-wide camera, a dream for every DSLR user. This camera is made possible by Astrophotography mode, which is approximately a 5-minute long-exposure mode. However, one of the problems that you might experience with this smartphone is that it is pricey and has poor battery life. If you wish to pick one up, we would recommend opting for Pixel 4 XL, which is a phone that will last you through the day.
Both the phones, Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, have a similar dual-camera. Though the primary sensor of the phone is only 12.2 MP, which is like the iPhone 11 Pro, it does capture excellently balanced pictures every single time. Google Pixel 4 also has introduced a handy exposure control when you take a shot. It allows you to accentuate the shadows distinct from the overall brightness, thereby ensuring that every detail pops up even in low-light areas.
To test the much-hyped Astrophotography mode, you can get the phone on one steady surface, point it at the sky, and get set to shoot the spectacular night sky, stars, and the galaxy on a bright night. Another stunning feature of the new Pixel smartphone is its ultra-wide camera, which will enable you to capture GoPro-style wide shots.
2. iPhone 12 Pro
The iPhone 12 Pro has undoubtedly one of the best cameras available. It features an ultra-wide f/2.4 camera, a telephoto f/2 camera, and a wide f/1.6 camera. The impressive three-camera unit allows you to capture some of the finest quality pictures ever taken from a smartphone.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a 12 MP sensor in its TrueDepth selfie camera, which lets you capture superior quality pictures and enjoy crisp and sharp video calls. One of the best smartphone cameras, it also has a myriad of new features like the LiDAR scanner, which allows you to focus better even in low light conditions. You can use the all-new Apple ProRAW file format with this phone’s camera. This lets you combine excellent computational photography effects, which Apple has always been known for, backed with RAW files.
Owing to the new Ceramic Shield display and 5G network technology, you are likely never to have any regrets about owning this device.
