Best camera phones with in Budget

During the last few months, smartphones have not only grown beautiful but also become more powerful. They now carry within their sleek frames the power to rival personal computers and the imaging capabilities of standalone cameras. 

The latter has been the more praiseworthy achievement, with a number of companies, including Samsung, Huawei and Apple announcing phones that focus heavily on imaging capabilities. Interestingly, this has been achieved by developing new technologies and improving the sensors and not by getting embroiled in a megapixel race.

With the increase in the usage of smartphones as photography drivers, a phone's picture taking prowess has become an important consideration for most buyers in the market for a new smartphone. Here's a look at the best camera phones in the market right now. 

Huawei P20 Pro
The Huawei P20 Pro has been touted as the perfect smartphone for photography enthusiasts with the Chinese smartphone maker even claiming that it's better than many expensive DSLRs that professional photographers use. The phone comes flaunting a 6.1-inch (2240x1080) AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it uses powerful Kirin 970 platform, 128GB of storage and 6GB RAM for smooth performance. The phone gets its juice from 4000mAh battery pack with Huawei SuperCharge.

In terms of the cameras, the P20 Pro is an absolute beast. Huawei and Leica have collaborated here to build a truly unique camera system that features not two, but three lenses placed vertically. On paper, this makes it arguably the most powerful system seen on a flagship.

Break free from bulk and embrace the freedom to create your perfect shot. 

Of the three cameras, the first is a 20-megapixel monochrome camera, the second being a 40-megapixel colour lens and the third being an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. The 40-megapixel lens features a huge 1/1.7” sensor, one that is much larger than any competing phone.

Both the 40-megapixel camera and the telephoto lens have optical image stabilisation. Huawei's flagship also has an improved Laser autofocus system which now works up to 2.4m (twice as far as P10's Laser AF) and there's "4D auto focus" with motion prediction too.

The phone is also bringing with it AI-backed features such as artificial intelligence stabilisation or AIS which works on object and scene recognition. AIS also come into play during night shots with a Handheld Night Mode.

Galaxy S9+
Since its launch, the Samsung's new flagship has gained a lot of praise for its design and internals. The phone, however, has received special praise for its camera module which has turned out to be one of the best in the market.

The first Galaxy S phone to sport a dual camera, the phone brings with it a camera set-up consisting of an optical image-stabilised 12-megapixel lens with 2X zoom and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. However, this is no ordinary camera set-up with the wide angle lens on the phone capable of toggling between aperture for daylight (f/2.4) and low light (f/1.5). The phone can also shoot super slow-motion videos at up to 960fps.

Needless to say, the specs make this one of the better cameras on a smartphone right now. DxO, one of the more trusted names in photography circles, and one that is well known for its benchmarking tool DxOMark, has also given the S9+ its approval after it gave it a score of 99. 

Pixel 2

The Pixel 2 devices bring with them a single lens setup consisting of a 12.2-megapixel dual-pixel lens with f/1.8 aperture. The phone's impressive sensor is paired with a combination of laser detection (LDAF) and phase detection (PDAF) for autofocus, captures beautiful pictures and videos.

The single lens camera phone is regarded as one the very best for clicking pictures, with DxOMark DxOMark giving the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL a rating of 98. Needless to say, the phone should be given a good hard look if you are in the market for a new camera phone.

iPhone X
One of the more impressive camera phones available in the market right now is the iPhone X. This device announced to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first iPhone back in 2007 comes with impressive specs, and a revolutionary front camera module that houses a camera lens, an infrared sensor and another camera sensor capable of throwing 30,000 invisible dots at the user's face used to create a detailed 3D model of the face for facial recognition purposes.

At the back of the iPhone X is its main camera module with a 12-megapixel lens - same as in the iPhone 8 Plus - with f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures. But unlike iPhone 8, the dual camera set-up here brings with it optical image stabilisation in both the sensors. The rear camera array also has a quad-LED True Tone Flash.

The module to date has been met with rave reviews with DxO mark even calling it the best camera on a smartphone for clicking stills. Overall, the phone received a rating of 97, making it one of the best camera phones available in the market right now.

Galaxy Note 8
The Galaxy Note 8 is another solid contender for the crown. With a 12-megapixel dual camera module, it was one of the best in 2017. Though 2018 has seen better camera phones than it make their way to the market, it still remains a great option for those looking for a phone for clicking pictures.

The device offers a feature called Dual Capture mode which allows the dual camera set-up to click two pictures simultaneously and allows you to save both images; one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that shows the entire background.

At the front, the phone comes with a more than capable 8-megapixel selfie camera than the S8 range comes with.
