To begin with, we have Apple’s iPhone 8. Apple phones have always had cameras which click really crisp images and they have always maintained a very clean and minimal camera interface. After the iPhone 6 model was launched, Apple has made the cameras to click pictures in HDR mode by default. It serves two purposes, one is that you no longer need to manually capture images in HDR mode and also HDR mode by default clicks picture much more faster and snappier. The phone has a better aperture , now f2.2 which is better as it means it absorbs more light than before. On the other hand, if you are someone who has big hands, the elder brother of iPhone 8, called the iPhone 8 plus will suit you. Its a phone with huge screen and dual rear cameras.

The two rear cameras help give more depth to the pictures, what comes out is a wonderful portrait mode photo. The bigger phone even has a much lesser aperture. The logic is pretty simple, lesser the aperture size , better the picture will be. iPhone 8 plus has a f1.8 aperture size which helps it click much crisper images so if you have bigger palm size and wish to have a phone that clicks stunning images then you should go for iPhone 8 Plus.

Google ended the Nexus lineup and has come with a new lineup called Pixel. Pixel is the flagship device by Google and they aim to make the best android device. The phone looks great and also has a unique feel to it especially with the dual tone back. When it comes to camera, it was Google pixel that started comparing phone with the DxO rating and the first release broke all the records, even today the first Pixel captures great images that can give tough competition to other phone of the same league.

The latest pixel 2 on the other side is a phone that has pushed the boundaries even more when it comes to the camera performance. The pixel 2 has f1.8 aperture size and it makes the phone better than before. You can imagine when a phone gets a score of 95+ in both the images and video segment, it is bound to capture absolutely stunning images. What is even more surprising is the fact that the Pixel 2 just has one lens and despite that, it is able to capture portrait mode pictures. If you like the awesomeness of android and a solid build phone then you can opt for the Pixel.

There is another new entrant in the smartphone arena, it is Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro. The mate 10 performs very well and has got a stunning body. The metal makes it feel very premium and the phone also sports dual rear cameras. Whenever you see dual rear camera, most probably it will be used for capturing pictures in portrait mode. With an aperture of f1.7, the phone does click some really awesome pictures. For the last one we have HTC U11. It is a phone that is unique in every sense. It has got a squeeze feature which can trigger some action inside the phone.
