Best smartphones with a macro camera

Digit Expert | 28 Jan 2020

Macro photography refers to extreme close-up shots generally of small objects like flowers or insects. It lets you capture the most detailed shots possible of incredibly small objects revealing that which would not normally be visible to the naked eye. If you've always wanted to take photos of the macro world but lacked the means, we've got a selection of smartphones that will help you get started with macro photography.

OnePlus 7T

The Never Settle tagline of the brand makes its presence felt in the OnePlus 7T. On the front is a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel that promises vivid colors and smoother interface thanks to the 90Hz refresh rate. On the back, the OnePlus 7T offers a 48MP+12MP+16MP camera setup with a dedicated macro mode for ultra-close objects with detailed clarity. If you don't wish to shoot using the dedicated macro mode, you can always just use the primary camera in the 48MP resolution to shoot whatever you want. Once you've done that, you can easily crop into the image thanks to the massive resolution. The OnePlus 7T also comes with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855+ SoC which packs the most advanced ISP from the chip maker, further improving the imaging experience. With 6GB RAM and 128GB Storage, you don’t need to worry about multitasking and storage needs. It runs on Oxygen OS based on Android 10 and all these features are powered by a 3800mAh battery that has 30W fast charging support.

Vivo V17 Pro

Vivo’s V series has been a popular choice among the newer generation of users and the V17 Pro is no different. The main highlight of the show is the 48MP+13MP+8MP+2MP quad-camera setup on the rear and the 32MP+8MP dual front pop-up camera. The Vivo V17 Pro also happens to be the first phone in the market to have a dual front camera in a pop-up module. You can click ultra-wide photos from both sides and the rear wide-angle camera also acts as a macro lens to give you the finest of details from the smallest of objects. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage makes sure you have enough processing power for every task. Lastly, the 4100mAh battery takes good care of the phone’s endurance, especially if you're going to be shooting a lot with it.

Redmi Note 8 Pro

The ever-popular Note series from Redmi has delivered exceptional value for money products and the Redmi Note 8 Pro keeps that trend going. The first thing you will notice is the quad-camera array on the back with 64MP primary camera that promises clearer shots and the 2MP dedicated macro lens to provide detailed close-up shots, be it a flower or a drop of water. If you find the macro lens a little hard to work with, you can always shoot using the 64MP sensor and then crop into the scene for extreme closeups. The Redmi Note 8 Pro also runs on a powerful MediaTek Helio G90T chipset and MediaTek says it designed this chip with gamers in mind, so expect a smooth gaming experience with this device. With 128GB Storage, you have enough to store thousands of songs and hundreds of apps.

Redmi Note 8

You don’t always have to spend a lot to get a good camera experience and the Redmi Note 8 proves just that with its quad-camera setup. On the Redmi Note 8, you get a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, a portrait lens for clear bokeh pictures and a macro lens that can focus on subjects as close as 2cm. That is an incredibly close distance to get to any subject, so you can expect to see hidden details that you may have overlooked. The 6.3-inch IPS LCD display, when paired with 4000mAh battery, is a perfect combination for those who love consuming content on their phones more than on any other device. It runs on Snapdragon 665 mobile platform that should handle most of your workload without any hiccups. With MIUI based on Android 9 Pie, you get access to tons of features like Scrolling Screenshot, Mi Share, Ultra Battery Saver and more.
