When looking to buy a top phone, one feature that most users prioritize is a great camera. Brands, too, are striving to deliver superior image quality camera features with their best phones, in a bid to give DSLRs a run for their money.
Here are our top picks for the best phones of 2019, under Rs. 25,000, that offer fantastic cameras. Read this guide to compare smartphones and choose the best one.
1. Huawei P30 Pro
Camera Specifications: 40+20+8 MP (Rear); 32 MP Motorized pop-up (Front) | Dual-LED Two Tone Flash | Leica Optics, HDR, Panorama
With its 5x optical zoom technology, expandable to 10x zoom, the P30 Pro can capture images in great detail and depth. Its powerful colour sensors absorb more light and capture greater sharpness than most other top phones. The selfie camera on this device is also impressive. The low-light images taken in ‘Night Mode’ are also sharp with minimal blur. This product, when compared to the top phones of 2019, is a steal for its price tag!
2. Vivo V15 Pro
Camera Specifications: 48+8+5 MP (Rear); 32 MP Motorized pop-up (Front) | LED Flash | Auto HDR, Panorama
Vivo is famed to be among the best smartphones for its selfie cameras. The V15 Pro meets more than expectations in this department. With features including AI-Powered Beauty Mode, AR Stickers, Live Photos, etc., this phone is a catch for any selfie-lover. Its autofocus is quick and the auto HDR balances dark and light areas well. Even in low light photography under ‘Night Mode’, the images are not grainy and are fairly clear.
3. Oppo F11 Pro
Camera Specifications: 48+5 MP (Rear); 16 MP Motorized pop-up (Front) | LED Flash | Auto HDR, Panorama
Oppo F11 Pro’s camera captures crisp daylight shots in great detail using its ‘Four Adjacent Pixels’ technology. Its AI figure recognition (autofocus) is also fast. There is the ‘Dazzle Colour’ feature (also called Chroma Boost), which is an advanced HDR mode with enhanced colour saturation and image quality. Other advanced features include Time Lapse, Slow-Mo, and Ultra Night Mode.
4. Xiaomi Pocophone F1
Camera Specifications: 12+5 MP (Rear); 20 MP (Front) | Dual-LED Flash | Auto HDR, Panorama
This Xiaomi model takes images with excellent quality in daylight shots – photos are sharp and refined, with minimal noise. The contrast is also impressive. The night images fall short of the other competitors in the list, however, they are sharper with the Auto-HDR off. The impressive front camera captures clear selfies and evens blur the background in classic DSLR fashion.
