Best Camera Phones (2020)

are you wondering which phone has the

best camera performance here at phone

arena we get to test a bunch of

expensive flagship phones and compare

their cameras and this is our selection

of the best camera phones where we tell

you which phones capture great photos at

night which ones give you the ability to

zoom far and away with amazing clarity

which ones are great for video and so on

and so far in 2020 there are eight

phones that stand out with their

innovative cameras and the first one you

should consider is the Google pixel for

excel underrated and often too harshly

criticized the pixel for excel remains

on the top of the camera rankings with a

simple two camera setup on its back that

captures images with incredible dynamic

range beautiful colors and plentiful

detail both during the day but

especially if you are shooting in

low-light you will love the pixel for

excel it has one weakness however and

that is the lack of a dedicated ultra

wide camera an ultra wide camera gives

you the ability to shoot in tight spaces

and capture stunning architecture and

landscape shots and it's our number one

complaint about the pixel second on this

list comes the samsung galaxy s 20 altra

one of the most expensive phones on the

list but also one of the most versatile

camera setups while it does have a brand

new massive 108 megapixel main sensor

that uses a clever technique combining

nine pixels into one to create stunning

12 megapixel final shots that's not even

the biggest highlight of the ultra what

you should be excited about is that 4

times zoom periscope telephoto camera

that Samsung has managed to fit in it's

an extremely complex piece of

engineering that allows you to get

incredibly clear pictures at five times

and even ten times zoom it goes all the

way to 100 times digital zoom but we

don't really recommend shooting that far

as photos do get blurry after 10 times

zoom and especially after 30 times the

ultras also got in ultra wide lens for

those epic shots and a depth camera

for more accurate portrait capture next

on the list comes the iPhone 11 Pro max

a phone that needs no introduction with

that signature stovetop styling it is

easily recognizable and it provides

excellent images during the day with

pleasing colors and now finally Apple

has introduced a night mode that is

automatic and works like a charm the

iPhone 11 Pro max features a 12

megapixel main camera and then a 2 x

Zune telephoto camera and then an ultra

wide shooter as well where it excels

above all others however is video

recording it's capable to record crispy

clear footage at 4k and as much as 60

frames per second plus it's got reliable

focusing and great video stabilization

add to that some truly professional apps

on iOS that unlock options like shooting

with all three cameras at the same time

you get the picture one thing we are

missing on the iPhone however is a zoom

camera that can capture clean detail at

10 times zoom like Android phones can

next up we have the oneplus 8 pro one of

the more affordable phones in this list

if a price around 900 dollars can

qualify as affordable it features a

triple camera system with a 48 megapixel

main shooter that combines four

individual pixels into one so you end up

with a great-looking 12 megapixel final

shot and it's also got a three times

zoun telephoto camera and an ultra wide

shooter and even a funky color filter

that is a topic of a separate discussion

what you need to know about the eight

pro is that oneplus has finally entered

the camera big leagues and it shoots

good-looking photos at both night and

day video is severely cropped but this

crop allows for an industry-leading

super smooth stabilization and a crispy

4k quality is on board as well next on

the list is a device that is taking the

world by storm recently the Oppo find x2

Pro Chinese company Huawei was put on

the u.s. entity list last year which has

quickly led to its demise in Western

markets as its new phones were

prohibited from running Google Apps in

2020 Chinese company Oppo

quickly made use of the opportunity and

its latest flagship the find x2 Pro is

now available all across Europe and many

other countries with a 5 times periscope

zoom lens being the big highlight the

find x2 Pro is one of the finest mobile

zoom machines you can get and it

captures good-looking shots both during

the day and at night next up on the list

we have the Huawei P 40 Pro Plus we have

just mentioned that with no Google Apps

we cannot recommend Huawei phones at the

moment but we have to speak about this

phone just because it is a little

technological wonder it is the first one

in the world to feature a 10 times

native zoom lens of the periscope kind

that gives you unprecedented zoom

quality not only that it has a secondary

3 x telephoto zoom lens for those who

still want great clarity at more

reasonable zoom levels heck you can

probably use this phone instead of

binoculars the p40 Pro Plus is a little

camera wonder that serves as a good

example of what future phones will bring

us next up we march on to the sony

xperia 1 Mar to

in 2020 the Japanese company has not

been doing very well in the past few

years but the Xperia 1 mark 2 is an

excellent camera that has some tricks up

its sleeve that no other phone in this

list has for example Sony uses the

impressive object tracking technology

from its professional alpha series of

camera on this phone so you can tap on

an object in the viewfinder and focus

will stay locked on that subject super

awesome if you happen to record a lot of

videos of skating or other sporting

activities the main camera here is a 12

megapixel one and we should also say

that Sony is making the sensors for many

of the phones on this list so expect

excellence and no less images look

detailed colors look balanced without

being over the top and overall Xperia

ion mark 2 is an excellent camera to

consider last but definitely not least

we have a phone from an up-and-coming

brand reel me in offshoot of Oppo the

real meat x3 super zoom

has a name that speaks for itself with a

5 x telephoto camera of the periscope

kind that gives you that sweet crispy

clean picture when you zoom in and

overall it's a very good performer the

best part this phone costs half the

price of most other phones on this list

at just five hundred dollars or euros in

Europe it's a killer value in the camera

game with good performance from the main

64 megapixel camera the ultra wide

camera and it's even got a macro camera

onboard as well and this is our

selection of the most notable names in

the smartphone camera big league from

Samsung to Google and Apple and the

newcomers like Oppo and real meat

cameras on smartphones have never been
