Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Gone are the days when the camera on a phone was just a gimmick. Today’s smartphones have high resolution with megapixel cameras – one megapixel is equal to a million pixels, and some cameras have as much as 12 megapixels, making it a higher resolution than a top-range camera from Canon. However, that’s not the be-all and end-all. Look for features like high lens and sensor quality, as well as the ability to take photos in low light, autofocus, and image stabilization so your Instagram posts aren’t all blurry. All the main manufacturers of smartphones have good entries as camera phones, across a range of price points.
