One of the best innovations in smartphone cameras is the inclusion of wide-angle cameras. Wide-angle cameras help in squeezing more of your surroundings into the frame without moving away from the target. Even though the market is full of smartphones, finding one with a wide-angle camera isn’t easy as companies tend to cut costs by using a cheap sensor, which results in low-quality images. So here are four of the best budget smartphones with wide-angle cameras that you can find on Amazon.
Samsung Galaxy M21
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly device with a wide-angle camera and a large 6000mAh battery that can last through the day, then you can check this one out. The Samsung Galaxy M21 has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity U cut display with Full HD+ resolution. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by an Exynos 9611 octa-core chipset clocked at 2.3Ghz and has 4GB RAM for seamless multitasking. This dual SIM device has 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card to help you store all your apps and data. The 48MP + 8MP + 5MP triple camera setup combined with the 20MP front camera lets you capture decently detailed images and videos. All of these features are packed in a device that’s 0.9cm thick and weighs just 188g. Samsung also bundles a 15W Type-C fast charger to charge that gigantic battery.

At the front, you can see the gorgeous 6.53-inch Full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 to help you browse through all the different apps on your smartphone.
