Things You should Consider While Choosing Best Camera Phone

With improving camera technology, cameras have become a big priority for customers while buying a phone. Although every company boasts of having the best camera in the market.

Whereas we can buy some of the best mobiles under 20000 but it is wise on your part to make a little checklist while picking a camera phone for yourself. 

Signs of a good camera phone

Megapixel count

This is the most basic feature you should look for in your smartphone camera. A lot of cameras today have triple or quadruple rear cameras, that can even come quite close to a DSLR camera in terms of the quality. The OnePlus 8T 5G phone, for instance, comes with a 48MP + 16MP + 5MP + 2MP quad rear camera set-up, and a 16MP front selfie camera, and is considered by many to be the best flagship camera phone under Rs. 50,000.

Wide lens aperture

The wider the lens aperture, the better are the pictures in the background that are slightly dim. You can also use them to defocus and create a beautiful bokeh effect in your pictures.

Different types of lens

Different types of lens are useful in taking pictures when you need something specific out of them. For instance, if you need to capture a wide view in your picture, you can switch to the ultra-wide lens. The standard pictures we take use the wide angle lens. Telephoto lenses can be used to click clearer pictures of objects that are far away. There are also monochrome lenses that you can exclusively use to click monochrome pictures.

The new Samsung Galaxy S20 comes with 64MP (telephoto) + 12MP (ultra-wide) + 12MP (wide angle) lenses. The sensational OnePlus 8T comes with a quadruple rear camera set-up, with 48MP (Sony IMX586 Sensor) + 16MP (ultra wide angle) + 5MP (macro lens) + 2MP (monochrome lens), and a 16MP front camera with the Sony IMX471 sensor.

4K video

Most smartphones today come with a 4K videography feature. 4K videos at 60fps can capture every bit of action you want to record. Two affordable phones with the 4K video feature are the Samsung Galaxy F41, and Moto G8 Power Lite.


It becomes really annoying when your phone doesn’t focus properly on an object, or a face you want it to focus on. Phones with an autofocus feature make your job easier.

Shutter response

Shutter response is basically how many frames per second (fps) your phone camera can capture. Better the shutter response, easier it is to click pictures in a situation where the subject of the picture is moving.

ISO Control

In environments that are not optimally lighted, the ideal camera would increase the ISO levels to make the lens more sensitive to light.


You can also check if your phone is water-resistant. This way you wouldn’t have to worry about your camera if you drop your phone in a bucket of water. But more so, a water resistant phone can help you click pictures or make videos even when you’re underwater or if it’s raining.

Camera phone recommendations

Some of the best camera phones available in the market right now are the OnePlus 8T, Samsung Galaxy A21s, Vivo Y20 and Samsung Galaxy M11. Vivo Y20 is considered by many to be one of the best mobiles under 20,000 INR.
