Best Camera Phones You Can Buy in 2019


The highest-quality photos and videos can only be captured using a high-quality DSLR camera and camcorder, but what if you want to capture high-quality photos and videos using your phone? With the best camera phones that you can buy now in 2019, you don’t need a costly and bulky DSLR camera to satisfy your craze of photography. If taking photos, from selfies to panorama shooting, is your primary reason to have a new phone, here are some of the best camera phones that you should try now.

Huawei P30 Pro

Introducing state-of-the-art camera phones is what Chinese phone makers are now competing for. From this stringent competition, Huawei P30 Pro emerges as a winner with its amazing periscope telephoto lens. Its photography quality surpasses not only that of other Chinese camera phones, such as Oppo’s products, but also Google Pixel 3 and its XL variant. Huawei P30 Pro’s strongest feature appears in its low-light and zoom performance. The secret of its powerful photography performance lies on the four cameras that are located on its back, including a 40MP lens, an 8MP telephoto lens, a 20MP ultra-wide lens, and a time-of-flight lens. With all of these lenses, Huawei P30 Pro knows how to deal with darkness, depth, and angle when capturing photos and videos.

Google Pixel 3

The second-best camera phone that you can buy in 2019 is Google Pixel 3, or its XL variant. There is a stringent competition between this phone and the Huawei P30 Pro phone. Although Huawei’s newest camera phone is proven to be the winner, Google Pixel 3 is actually a very close rival and it offers valuable features that the P30 Pro lacks, especially in the color department. If you are looking for a phone camera that can reproduce real color perfectly, Google Pixel 3 is your best choice now. It also features a powerful HDR feature that surpasses all camera phones available today. If you want a multi-lens camera phone, however, you have to be disappointed because Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have only one lens that lacks wide-angle option.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Another Huawei camera phone that will be an excellent candidate for one of the best camera phones in 2019 is Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Unlike the P30 Pro model, this camera phone has only 3 lenses on its back instead of 4, but its photography performance is hardly compromised. It can still capture photos and videos with some fantastic effects including ultra-wide and bokeh effects. The position of the 3 lenses together with the flash on the center part of the phone’s back may look unusual, but once you use them to capture your favorite photos and videos, you will be amazed by the result.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

The newest Galaxy model introduces multiple camera lenses on its back, significantly enhancing its photo and video capturing capability compared with its predecessor. The rear camera lenses include a regular lens, 2x optical telephoto lens, and 123-degree ultra-wide lens. With this set of lenses together with the software platforms that corroborate their functionalities, your photo and video shooting experience will not be the same. You will be able not only to capture high-quality photos and videos but also to process them using the numerous effects that Samsung software offers before you can share them. Another special feature that makes the Plus variant better in terms of photography is its dual-front facing camera, which the S10 lacks.

iPhone XS

It is impossible to dismiss the iPhone in the list of the best camera phones to buy in 2019. Since acquiring the Israeli smart camera establishment four years ago, Apple has been ambitiously attempting to transform its newest flagship phones into real DSLR phones. This phone is equipped with a pair of 12MP cameras that sport f/1.8 and f/1.2 respectively on its back. The best part about this phone’s photographic capability is its excellent stabilization feature, which ensures that every photo that you take is sharp and clear. The telephoto sensor that this phone includes also makes sure that your photo and video will remain sharp and clear even if you try to zoom in a little further.

Honor View 20

If you are looking for a reasonably priced camera phone with superb photo and video capturing ability, you should try Honor View 20. Its 48MP sensor is among the highest on the market today. Some of the most exciting features that it offers are its AR photography and time-of-flight camera that makes sure that you can manipulate the depth of your photos and videos.
