Which smartphone camera are you?

If your smartphone has become your new point-and-shot digital camera and you are used to clicking pictures all the time with it, either to send a product image to a client or to capture a great family moment, it is more likely that you would want to know if you are carrying the best optical device in your pocket. Therefore, let us take you through a brief review of the best smartphone cameras in the market, so that next time you take a picture you get the best digital memento!

iPhone 5s, the most efficient camera phone overall

The Cupertino-based tech giant’s latest phone has an 8 megapixel sensor, which is 15 percent larger than the iPhone 5 version, and has a lower f/2.2 aperture. These combined with the dual LED flash and the image stabilization feature in the device result in the best camera phone for taking pictures in any situation, even in low light. Furthermore, Apple’s Camera App was improved for the 5s and, in addition to Panorama and HDR modes, users are able to shoot slow-motion videos. Also, a burst mode is available, which enables picture lovers to capture up to 10 frames per second.

Nokia Lumia 1020, the sharpest lens for getting details

With a powerful 41 megapixel sensor–a great pixel number even for point-and-shot digital cameras–Lumia 1020 is able to capture so much picture information that users are able to zoom in their images at will without losing high resolution or detail. In addition, its optical image stabilization feature prevents clicking shaky pictures. The best part of owning this gadget comes when the Pro Camera App is running, for it enables users to change quite a few things in their images: from shutter speed to ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation.

Samsung Galaxy S4, the most versatile and fun choice

For those who are looking for a smartphone camera that allows them to remove an unwanted person from their favorite pictures, or love to create animated GIFs, this Android device is the best option available. Galaxy S4 has so many fancy features that it even allows users to take pictures with the rear and the front cameras at the same time. Another interesting option included in this camera phone is the Drama Shot mode, which clicks multiple pictures of a person and combines them into one single image. Best Face mode is also a useful tool, which ensures that everyone in a group shot is smiling. Samsung is also known for creating a friendly interface which helps users picking the best mode for every situation. Finally, this device features a 13 megapixel camera which captures very sharp images as well.

Sony Xperia Z, the wisest pick for outdoor lovers

Having the advantage of resisting a 3 feet water splash for 30 minutes at a time, Xperia Z is the best choice for those swimming and beach enthusiasts. This smartphone has a 13 megapixel camera and an advanced Exmor-RS sensor, which is the same kind used for Sony’s point-and-shot digital cameras in low-light photo conditions. Other great features include HDR mode available for still photo and video, as well as the SuperiorAuto+ mode, and Panorama mode.
