The best Android camera phones to buy in April 2020

Smartphones have managed to effectively replace simple digital cameras, and in many ways surpass them. Now shooting on the phone has become commonplace, and the quality of photos is a priority when choosing a new smartphone. That's why we've compiled a list of the best Android camera phones available at the moment. Each of them has its pros and cons, each copes with the task of shooting in different ways, but high-quality images guarantee everything without exception.

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL have long been among the best camera phones, and have been leading until recently. Their successors - Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL-won the palm and now they are the leaders.

You can't go wrong with choosing a Pixel 4 or 4 XL as your camera phone. Yes, they don't have a super wide-angle lens, but Google thinks a lens with 2x zoom is more useful. This makes the Pixel series a little less versatile than phones with standard, wide-angle, and zoom lenses, but you still get excellent image quality.The Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL offer more than just high-quality lenses and sensors. Their most powerful weapon is software. Photography combined with AI is the way to the future, and Google is proving it with results. Night mode, astrophotography, HDR, and intelligent editing capabilities allow Google smartphones to display great images.

The only noticeable drawback of both devices is the battery life, which is not happy in the Pixel 4, and in the 4 XL is not much better.

If you can live without high-end specs and IP rating, plus, want to save money, you should choose Google Pixel 3A or Pixel 3A XL. Pixel 3A is cheaper than Pixel 3, but comes with almost the same camera hardware and software. This makes the 3a series the best line of camera phones at the best price.

There is no compromise here, so the 3a series is made of plastic instead of glass, equipped with a Snapdragon 670 SoC (unlike the Snapdragon 845) and a single 8-megapixel front-facing camera, not a dual one. Despite this, both smartphones look and work well, and create decent selfies.

< /p>Note 10 and 10 Plus feature a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, as well as a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel telephoto camera. The Plus model is additionally equipped with a ToF sensor to improve the bokeh effect.

In the daytime, the Note 10 cameras take fantastic pictures. In reviews, it was noticed that photos can appear oversaturated colors that are much brighter than in real life. It is difficult to say whether this is good or bad, here the choice is subjective. It should be noted that the Note 10 smartphones do not take photos as well as we would like in low light. The images are not bad, but they do not match the images taken by competitors.

In general, the Note 10 and 10 Plus models are distinguished by high-end characteristics and stylish design (if you are interested in more than just photos).

The Samsung Galaxy S line is known for the fact that it quite often contains some of the best camera phones. The Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus are the latest in this series, and they don't disappoint. Their main cameras are equipped with lenses and sensors of excellent quality.

The camera system consists of a pair of 12-megapixel sensors and a third 64-megapixel camera. In addition, the Plus version is equipped with a 3D TOF camera for depth of field. As a result, the main camera of the S20 line has become one of the most versatile mobile cameras.The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is worth mentioning, but while it has more impressive overall specs and camera hardware, it lacks Dual Pixel autofocus. At the same time, the other two versions provide both dual-pixel and phase-shift autofocus. This means that the Galaxy S20 Ultra doesn't hold focus as well, and the higher megapixel count alone isn't enough for leadership.

Otherwise, all three devices have impressive performance, some of the best screens, great design, and everything you can expect from a Samsung flagship.

Oppo Find X2 Pro is another device with a universal main camera system. It's triple-a standard 48-megapixel camera combined with a 13-megapixel telephoto lens and a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens. The periscope zoom camera provides 5x optical zoom, but you can also take advantage of 10x hybrid and 60x digital zoom.

This is one of the best camera phones with natural colors, good sharpness and excellent dynamic range. Its specifications are also quite on the level-the smartphone is so productive that there is nothing to complain about.

< /p>Xiaomi Mi Note 10 may not match the best camera phones like the Pixel 4 in image quality, but it comes close and offers impressive versatility. It offers five main cameras that can adapt to almost any shooting style.

The standard 108 MP sensor has a sensor size of 1/ 1.33 inches and a single pixel size of 0.8 microns. Under the main lens is a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with double zoom. Xiaomi advertises the third lens as a telephoto camera with a 5x optical zoom, but that's not the case. It's actually an 8 MP telephoto lens with 3.7 x optical zoom. Xiaomi performs digital cropping to get the same coverage as with the 5x zoom. This is a bit misleading and gives a slight distortion of perspective. Below is an ultra-wide-angle lens, and below it is a dedicated macro camera with a resolution of 2 MP and a pixel size of 1.75 microns.

< /p>If battery life, camera versatility, and additional features such as a headphone jack and IR port are important to you, it's hard to find a more competitive device in the same price category.
