Apple iPhone 7 Plus

The iPhone finally loses its hallowed crown. The iPhone 7 Plus’ dual-camera is great, but it misses out against the Pixel. It’s still the second best camera phone you can get today, which means it’s worth buying for sure. When you combine that with the fact that the iPhone 7 Plus is the fastest smartphone in the market today, it’s definitely worth buying.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Galaxy S8 carries the same camera as Samsung’s flagship last year. But that just means it’s still amongst the best camera phone. Samsung has made some algorithmic changes, making the camera slightly faster, while its low light prowess remains pretty much the same. The dual-pixel sensor focuses fast and the camera is more dependable this time.

OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5’s dual-camera isn’t as good as OnePlus claims it to be, but it’s still better than most smartphone cameras out there. In fact, we even found it edging out the iPhone 7 Plus in low light imaging sometimes. It’s a great camera to have in your pocket, and the fastest Android phone you can buy today.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Sony has certainly improved the camera this time, but it’s still behind the flagship smartphone it competes with. This is the only phone that can record slow motion video at 960fps, and there’s also a 4K display to boot. Of course, the videos won’t be shot at 4K, but it’s still a gimmick some may like. The Xperia XZ Premium will appeal to Sony fans, and a niche audience that wants to record 960fps slo-mo videos.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Galaxy S7 Edge houses a 12MP Sony IMX260 sensor, with an f/1.7 lens. The phones have uber-fast autofocus, and essentially house all the features that you would require from a flagship-class device. Alongside, the overall performance of the phone is fast and fluid. The new Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC, along with 4GB of RAM, churns out stellar performance. Samsung has also implemented fast charging on the phone, which charges the phone from 0 to almost full within an hour. The glass-and-metal build may not be well-suited for clumsy hands, but this has been one of Samsung’s best designs on smartphones ever. Also, Samsung has made the Galaxy S7 Edge water- and dust-resistant, so you can enjoy using the phone in rain or on a beach.

LG G6

LG dropped the modular design from last year, but it employs the same camera still. This time, the company has used the same sensor on its wide angle and primary lenses, which helps you seamlessly zoom in between the two. Colours and low light performance remain pretty much the same though, meaning you’ll still get a really good and flagship class camera.

Apple iPhone 7

According to us, Apple’s iPhone 7 has a slightly inferior camera to the S7 Edge in terms of fine detail and image noise. That said, it still takes really good photographs. The phone uses a similar 12MP camera as the iPhone 7 Plus, but somehow the image quality is recognizably different. Camera aside, the phone is extremely fast. So much so, that you would feel, that all Android phones are tad bit slower, Pixel included.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus

Apart from fluid performance, the iPhone 6S Plus boasts a very impressive camera. The 12MP sensor from Sony, the IMX 315, was a big upgrade over the earlier 8MP iSight camera. This is further aided by OIS and the excellent algorithm that balances colours and contrast really well in photographs. The 6S Plus loses out to the Galaxy S7 Edge in low light performance. That said, the iPhone is as smooth and fast as phones can get. The latest version of iOS, combined with the fast Apple A9 SoC, can handle small and big tasks with equal ease. The large, 5.5-inch display offers punchy colours. Moreover, the 3D Touch display is a joy to work on!

HTC 10

Over the past few years, HTC has been trying to implement UltraPixel cameras in its flagship devices, but the experiment has not been successful yet. The 12MP UltraPixel camera on the HTC 10, however, will change that, and we believe that it is one of the best cameras out there. It uses the Sony IMX377 Exmor R sensor, which is aided by OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and offers RAW support. The image quality is great, no matter whether you are shooting in broad daylight or under streetlight. There is some noise under low light conditions, but the images taken by the device look true to source. The HTC 10 is also a very powerful smartphone, offering a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC at heart.
