Smartphones with the best camera 2018

There is such a resource as DxOMark (DxOMark.com), which is one of the most respected when it comes to smartphone cameras. Representatives of the resource a few years ago developed a methodology for testing cameras of mobile devices, which are periodically improved. If you do not go into details, the essence is as follows: the higher the score, the better the camera shoots. Our top-rated smartphones with the best camera will be based on the DxOMark rating..

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus 64Gb

And here is the new leader of the rating – Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and 99 points. Please note that if the Galaxy S9 has a single camera, then the older version still got a dual module.

With its appearance, the novelty resembles the Galaxy S8, but the design has become more angular and now more closely resembles the Galaxy Note 8.

The smartphone not only shoots great, but it turned out to be extremely powerful – thanks to the Exynos 9810 Octa processor of its own production. It is interesting that in tests it showed itself better than the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. By the way, the latter is also available for the Galaxy S9 Plus, but only for some countries (this version is not supplied to us).

The memory capacity is 64 GB of internal and 6 GB of operational. By the way, the resolution of the rear cameras is 12/12 MP.

Google Pixel 2 64GB

Google Pixel 2 was released immediately in two versions – with a 5 and 6-inch screen. We will consider the first option.

In general, the new generation of Pixel is not so different from the previous one, if we talk about the appearance. For example, the design here is very similar, although the device has become much more powerful: now the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4 GB of RAM are used. The resolution of the rear camera, by the way, is low – only 12 MP, but it is considered almost the best in the world of smartphones.

iPhone 8 Plus 64Gb

Next – iPhone 8 Plus and 94 points.

The new iPhone 8 Plus was shown along with the iPhone X, but went on sale much earlier. However, the demand for it was not as great as before and this can partly be explained by the fact that users were waiting for the iPhone X, and in addition, the iPhone 8 is an upgraded “seven”.

What’s new? The dimensions remained almost the same (the weight of the device changed), new shades were added, wireless charging appeared, the new A11 Bionic processor, True Tone technology for automatic color reproduction, the amount of available memory was updated, and the cameras improved.
