Our smartphones have replaced so many devices. From calculators to alarm clocks to pagers and much more, these devices are now real relics. Today, innovation in smartphone technology has reached a point where it may soon replace yet another device, the professional handheld camera.
So far, we’ve seen some great smartphones that have pushed the barriers of mobile photography, but the 2020 launches pose a serious challenge for handheld cameras. Here is a list of the best smartphones with Android cameras that can help you ditch that camera if you haven’t already.
I live X50Pro
This phone has a unique feature that makes it unlike anything else on the market. A special gimbal camera! The Gimbal camera system on the 48MP main camera along with a custom Sony IMX598 sensor can achieve up to 300% more anti-shake angle compared to a traditional still OIS. Think of it as a tracking camera that chooses the most optimal spot that gives the best photo or video, regardless of the lighting conditions. The Gimbal stabilization also provides photo previews that can be used as a guideline to get the best looking photos and videos.
In addition to the new Gimbal camera system, the Vivo X50 Pro features a quad-camera setup with an 8MP 5x telescopic camera, an 8MP super wide-angle camera, and a 13MP Bokeh camera. The f/1.6 aperture allows the main camera to deliver incredible 120-degree super-wide-angle photos that are perfect for landscape and night photography enthusiasts. The camera setup also has an 8MP sensor that delivers up to 60x digital zoom, so you can really focus on what matters most while capturing the perfect shot.
The X50 Pro also includes professional photography features such as a Superb Night Camera, Pro Sports Mode, Astro Mode, Supermoon and Starry Sky Mode and Cinematic Master, making the device a flagship for professional photography smartphones. The X50Pro even has a special night mode called Extreme Night Vision that works really well in low light by automatically brightening the frame and adding details not visible to the naked eye, making it even more useful than a handheld professional camera. For the first time, you can experience DSLR-like image quality without carrying a bulky handheld camera system wherever you go.
If you are a photography enthusiast, the X50 Pro should be the latest tool in your arsenal for clicking the best photos and videos at all times. This amazing smartphone is available on Amazon, flip card and that of Vivo e-shop and is priced at a competitive INR 49,990.
OnePlus 8 Pro
OnePlus devices have always tried to take the smartphone game to the next level and it’s no different with their latest flagship model OnePlus 8 Pro. The four-camera setup is supported by intelligent adjustments, such as automatically switching to macro mode if the subject is too close to the frame. The Quad-cams are made up of a standard 48MP main camera, a refurbished ultra-wide angle lens, 30x zoom and a ‘color filter camera’ that uses a photochromic filter to shoot images.
It also includes Dynamic Video that can record in 4K with enhanced video stabilization, making it a fantastic device to use to capture stunning photos and videos.
The device is available at: Amazon and the OnePlus Online Store with prices starting from INR 54,990.
Samsung S20 Ultra
How much zoom is too much zoom? 20x? 50x? How about 100x? That’s right. The flagship Samsung S20 Ultra comes with a dazzling 100x zoom and can shoot 108MP high resolution images. Not only that, it can also record 8K videos at 24 fps, 4K videos at 60 fps and 30 fps from all its five camera sensors. This means you can shoot in 4K with the 40MP selfie camera, in case you go Live to shoot something or do quarantine vlogs.
Whether it’s daylight shots, macro mode, or ultra-wide images, the Samsung S20 Ultra is ready to capture exceptional shots no matter what. The smartphone raises the bar for others in the camera department like no other and the only thing that lets it down is the extremely high price barrier and lack of 5G right now.
The smartphone costs INR 97,999 and is available at Amazon, flip card and Samsung’s e-store.
OPPO Find X2
There is no doubt that OPPO has pulled out all the stops to make Find X2 the best flagship ever. Nowhere is this more evident than the performance and camera departments. The Find X2 Pro features a 48MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide camera and 13MP telephoto lens, apart from a 32MP selfie camera on the front. The camera setup coupled with AI enhancements like Beauty filters and the addition of Soloop video editor make the Find X2 a complete package to take some of the best photos and videos you’re likely to find.
The OPPO Find X2 costs INR 64,990 and is available on: Amazon and OPPO’s e-store.
