Which smartphone camera features are important for you?

Smartphones are everywhere!!!

They have become a part and parcel of life and the craze of photography is ever increasing. People want to do more with their phones. The popularity of apps like Tik Tok has increased the need for better photos on both selfie and rear cameras. People are increasingly ditching cameras for smartphones. Smartphones tend to be getting slimmer with improved technology getting packed in your pockets.

Earlier smartphones were riding on the dual-camera bandwagon, but the new standard seems to be a triple camera setup. The numbers may even increase with the unveiling of the Nokia 9 Pureview which has 5 cameras in its setup or there might be a replication of the periscope technology of the Huawei P30 Pro or the Oppo Reno 10x. Recently most phones have a dual-camera setup and it becomes difficult to pick and choose one with all the different features that each phone has. So, what is it that you are looking for while buying your smartphone?

Obviously, one of the most talked-about features of any smartphone camera is the megapixels. In the past two to three years, we have been seeing smartphones generally packed with a 12 MP or a 16 MP camera. This is changing in 2019, with the Huawei P30 pro or the Oppo Reno 10x (https://gizmojo.in/product-detail/oppo-reno-10x-zoom-256-gb-8-gb-ocean-green-fog-sea-green-ubx)and they have brought 48 MP cameras. They come with something called the time-of-flight sensor, which helps capture the depth while giving the bokeh effects. It essentially means you can zoom more, capture lots of details because of a periscope-like effect effectively created in the phones.

There has always been the notion more the megapixels, better is the clarity of the photos. But that’s not the only criteria to help your phone click better photos. The aperture size and sensor size determine how much detailed will be the image. The aperture size determines how much light falls on the sensor and helps to capture more detailed images even in low-light. Similarly, the sensor size of your camera’s lens helps determine how much detail is captured in the image that is getting processed. The aperture size is usually indicated as f/number and the lesser this number, the better is the light coming through for bright photos. This must be backed up by a large sensor size, which is usually denoted in ‘μm’. The larger the size, the more detailed is your photo. The recently launched Redmi K20 Pro has a 48-megapixel primary camera with an aperture of f/1.75 and a sensor size of 1.6 μm. In budget phones, Samsung’s recently launched A30 (https://gizmojo.in/product-detail/samsung-galaxy-a30-64-gb-4-gb-red-ubx) has a 16+5 MP rear camera and the 16 MP camera has an aperture of F/1.7. Generally, this configuration is enough for clicking decent photos in bright light and outdoor conditions. If you are looking to click selfies or want to take routine snaps, this sort of a configuration is more than enough. However, if you are a photography enthusiast and are looking for great images, you may want to dig deeper for additional features in your smartphone camera.

One of the most neglected features in the smartphone camera which greatly helps in your daily photos is Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). If your phone has this feature, it basically means your photos are less blurry. It also helps in auto-focus when you are capturing images of moving objects like your child, or a pet which never keeps still!! However, to overcome this, phones now come with Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) mode, which can be activated from phone camera’s settings. However, comparing photos clicked using EIS and OIS will help you in understanding the difference. This feature will be more useful when you are shooting videos and objects to keep moving.

But if you go by the best smartphone camera released last year, it obviously belonged to the Google Pixel 3. But it packs only a single lens. So how does Google do it? Essentially software plays an important role along with hardware to click the best photos. And the Google Camera on the Pixel 3 offers an HDR+ mode which gives you far better images than a dual or even a triple camera lens camera. Now the question is what is HDR? Essentially HDR stands for High Definition Resolution and it means that your phone captures a series of images when you click and combines all of them together to give you the best photo. Google is continuously increasing the features in the Google Camera and they now even offer a Night mode, which gives you bright clear photos even in low light. If you feel the Pixel 3 is beyond your budget, do look at the Pixel 3a which packs the same lens but with a less powerful chipset. Essentially, it may be slower in processing but will give you the same clarity in your photos.

So if you are a point and shoot person, who wants to click photos without a fuss, Google Pixel might be your go-to option. However, if you really look forward to clicking photos in manual mode and know the settings which come with it, there are plenty of options. The manual mode is superb in the Huawei P30 Pro and gives you greater clarity even when you zoom without losing clarity of the photos.

The competition is heating up with the advent of the 48 MP cameras. Google might rethink its strategy this year with the launch of Pixel 4. The wait is on and its an exciting time for photography enthusiasts who may no longer have to carry bulky cameras to click amazing photos.  

For the photography enthusiasts looking for a steal on good camera phones- Gizmojo offers a range of unboxed & preowned phones at exciting prices. Did you miss on a model launched last year because it was stretching your budget too tight? You may just find it on www.gizmojo.in, so no more regrets!
