In recent years there are a lot of smartphone cameras equipped with high resolution sensors. In the definition of consumer report, high resolution sensor seems to be "12 megapixel or more", and iPhone X and Galaxy S8 / S8 + meet this standard. Consumer reports that photographs of smartphones that have these high resolution sensors can shoot high-resolution pictures that can withstand trimming and enlarged printing. Of course, because it is a camera of a smartphone, it will be inferior if it compares the image quality with a single lens reflex camera etc. However, considering the high portability as a camera and the ease of sharing of photographed photographs, "the best camera on smartphone" I'm evaluating it as "defeat" single lens reflex cameras and the like. In addition, some high-performance smartphone cameras have an optical image stabilization function, and it is also possible to shoot superior movies.

Many of the latest smartphone cameras use "dual cameras" equipped with two cameras. In this dual camera, there are many cases that one is a telephoto camera and the other is a wide angle camera, and there are features that you can take pictures with blurred background by using two cameras. In addition, when taking a lot of pictures with smartphone cameras, we need about 5 MB of capacity for each photo, so you can use a terminal that can use microSD card etc, or a terminal with main storage of 64 GB or more as Consumer · Report We recommend.

In addition to items that evaluate the quality of photos such as noise, color accuracy, dynamic range, etc., in addition to the above "elements required for high-end smartphone cameras", consumer reports rank camera performance of 10 models of smartphones It is. As a result of ranking, the dual cameras of "iPhone X" and "iPhone 8 Plus" were evaluated as the best cameras. iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus have the same dual camera.

In addition, it was Galaxy S8 + released earlier than Galaxy Note 8 that was rated by Consumer Report with having the best camera other than the iPhone. The Galaxy S8 / S8 + / S8 Active has the same camera, but consumer report evaluates that the camera of S8 + is slightly higher quality than S8 and S8 Active.
