There are many great smartphones for photography, but which ones are the best? In this article, we’ll look at the OnePlus 8 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra, and Huawei Mate 40 Pro. All of these phones have great cameras, but how do they compare in terms of photo quality? Read on to learn more. And as always, remember that the best phones for photography aren’t necessarily the most expensive ones.
OnePlus 8 Pro
The OnePlus 8 Pro offers a 48MP primary camera and an ultra-wide camera. While this is a higher resolution than other smartphones, it’s not enough to take stunning pictures. Instead, you’ll need to process the images in Lightroom or Photoshop to make them as sharp as possible. The cameras on the OnePlus 8 Pro use binning to enhance the quality of photos taken with the camera. Four-to-one binning provides better image quality by enhancing the pixels. The result is a picture with much more clarity and detail than you’d get from a standard 12MP camera.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is an excellent phone for photography. Its ultrawide camera with a 100-degree field of view and auto-focusing features are a major improvement over previous flagships. The camera app has nippy autofocus, and the phone automatically switches to wide-angle shots when you have more than one person in the frame. It also has a ToF camera, which helps with portrait selfies and sparkles in low light.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
If you’re an amateur photographer, you’ll want the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Its stellar camera is ideal for wide-angle and super-zoomed in snaps. It also records excellent video and an artistic selfie. It’s great for visual artists, location scouts, and even architects. It’s also equipped with a powerful chip called the Exynos 2200. Though it doesn’t reach the level of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Bionic A15, this processor is still enough to handle most tasks.
Note 20 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is an excellent phone for photographers. It features three cameras, with a good dynamic range that doesn’t look boosted by HDR. Images also look smooth on the Note’s screen, though they may not look as sharp on a larger computer screen. It also offers standard “Photo” modes to help you take good shots.
Note 20 Ultra with triple camera set up
The Note 20 Ultra has a 108MP rear camera with IR focusing, which means it can capture 8K video. The Note 10 was stuck at 4K video, so Samsung made it up by offering 8K. Another new feature is the power button, which has been relocated to the right edge of the phone. The power button is not Bixby compatible, but the power button does work well to press the volume rocker.
OnePlus 7 Pro with four cameras
The OnePlus 7 Pro with four cameras has an all-screen design and has the same feisty personality as the Galaxy S8. The device uses three focusing systems: contrast AF, phase-detect AF and laser focusing. The latter is useful for achieving better focusing in low-light conditions. The front-facing camera also uses four lenses to achieve the highest resolution. The dual rear cameras also capture high-quality images.
