Hello Fellow MIUI Fans,
Smartphones are our go-to cameras. As they are always with us, they are what we turn to take interesting snippets of our life and these quick pictures often become some of the best souvenirs in our home albums. That's why a camera is one of the main considerations when purchasing a phone and we all know that quality photos go way beyond how many megapixels your camera has.
So, in this post, we take a look at what makes a good phone camera.
1: Autofocus is a must.
Autofocus allows the camera to correctly focus on the subject you are taking pictures off and is the key to avoiding blurry pictures. Thus, even if your camera is stuffed to the brim with megapixels, without Auto focus the photos will not look good. Most modern smartphone cameras come with the feature — but it's always a good idea to double check and make sure.
2: You will need a high quality flash.
A lot of phone photography is done in low lighting. Thus, it's best if your phone's camera comes with a strong flash — and, even better, with a dual LED flash. A dual LED is twice as bright as the standard one and provides loads of light for your photos.
3: Aperture: the lower the better.
Aperture is an opening through which light travels into the lens. Aperture is measured in f-stops: the focal length divided by the opening size. The smaller the f-stop, the more light can reach the camera's sensor.
4: HDR capabilities.
If you already have a phone that can take photos in HDR (high dynamic range), you know that when the mode is enabled, your phone will take a little longer to take the picture. This is because your phone's camera is actually taking three pictures at different exposures instead of one. It then automatically puts these images together and highlights the best parts of each photo in one.
The result: your photo will look more like what your eyes have seen, rather than what your camera has seen.
5: 4K video recording.
It's not all about the photos. Today's smartphones are capable of recording high quality videos as well — and if you are choosing a camera phone, go for the one that will let you take impressive 4K footage like, for instance, the MI MIX 2s.
Summing it up. Naturally, what functionality you need from your phone's camera depends in your requirements. Do you plan to take loads of action photos? Take panoramic scenery shots? Or, maybe you need a strong front camera for flawless selfies? Do you have any good tips forchoosing the best Android camera phone, you could share with us? Did our tips help you?
