Putting a smartphone’s camera through its paces is a significant part of the review process here at Trusted Reviews, and each model listed below is top-class not only for takin photos, but for video-recording too.
But what makes a good phone camera? Well, it certainly isn’t megapixel count – in fact, the majority of the devices in this list don’t feature more than 12 megapixels. More important are a wide aperture, around f/1.7 or f/1.8, and optical image stabilisation (OIS). Other aspects such as a secondary lens for portrait photos and an impressive selfie camera will be more or less important depending on your requirements.
