The Complete Guide to 40 of the Top Smartphone Cameras of 2020

Ask any professional photographer what they think about smartphone cameras and they’ll scoff. They’ll question the camera phone’s capacity to take quality professional like images; after all, that thing in your pocket does so many other things too.

A DSLR does one – take good photos. How could a smartphone camera ever compete with a DSLR?

But, ask that same question after a few Moscow Mules and the response of the pro is less of a scoff and more of a concern. Smartphone photography is getting good – they know it, we know it, and the companies that make the phones know it.

So, that’s why we compare smartphone cameras – to prove to you that you don’t need to spend hundreds on the latest and greatest from Canon or Sony.

To prove to you that with the right mobile phone camera, you too can take DSLR quality photos.

Web Next Conf

See, lens and camera companies are becoming keen to the fact that the amateur photographers – the soccer moms, the Instagram models, and the action shooters alike – want a quality product too.

So, nearly every company that produces smartphones prioritizes the phone’s camera. The thing is, they’ve been doing just that for the last couple of years. As a result, there are probably four years worth of smartphone cameras worth considering when purchasing a new mobile.

We’ve got the best of those cameras included in the guide below.

Do note that not all the camera phones listed will be serviceable in the U.S.

The Newest Smartphone Cameras

But they’re worth pointing out because their new camera technology may be worth saving for. Do be wary of the price tags in comparison to some of the options further down the list.

You wouldn’t buy the newest model car just because, right? The same logic applies when purchasing your new smartphone camera.

At the same time, it’s worth knowing what technology is becoming standard every year. The new phones of 2020 will eventually be at the bottom of this list, you know!
