5 best camera phones worth buying 2019

As we all know, once Huawei Mate 20 was launched, it became the flagship smartphone of the year in 2018 with its powerful photography technology. So, besides Huawei Mate 20, what other mobile phones that can shot good pictures?

Professional editors recommend that except Huawei Mate 20, there are also Vivo NEX dual-screen smartphone, Honor Magic2, OPPO R17 PRO and the iPhone XS Max. Now, let's take a close look at them.

Huawei Mate 20

Huawei Mate 20, known as the flagship of the year, has no greater bright spot than the post-matrix Leica three-camera + Flash layout. The matrix multi-focal imaging system provides powerful AI photography ability, super wide angle + 2.5 cm ultra-long distance, making photography performance leading the market.

With the support of the rear Leica three cameras, 12 million pixels (wide angle, f/1.8 aperture)+16 million pixels (ultra wide angle, f/2.2 aperture)+8 million pixels (long focus, f/2.4 aperture), this Huawei Mate 20 is amazing both in the precise definition and color performance.

I am most impressed by Huawei Mate 20's night photography effect. It can be seen that the luxurious configuration of rear three-camera zoom, two-fold optical zoom, 10-fold digital zoom and wide-angle f/1.8 aperture, combined with rear single LED flash in super-night mode, can shoot high precision, bright and clear pictures even in weak light.

Of course, 12 million pixels (wide angle, f/1.8 aperture) +16 million pixels (ultra wide angle, f/2.2 aperture) +8 million pixels (long focal, f/2.4 aperture) post Leica triple shooting, and ultra-long distance function, let Huawei Mate 20 shocking in shooting scenery, still life.

As the inheritor of the master of mobile portrait photography, Huawei Mate 20 has its own portrait mode and intelligent filter function, which has great advantages in portrait photography. Whether in color expression, image texture or light application, it makes the reputation of "master of portrait" fully display.

Vivo NEX Dual Screen 4G Phablet 

With the "dual screen" design into the end of 2018 "Black Horse" Vivo NEX dual screen version, only this sense of design to explore the future, let us open our eyes, full of respect.

Of course, as a front and rear double-sided screen version of Vivo NEX, the biggest highlight of the three-camera "star ring" - 12 megapixel binuclear pixel principal camera (OIS) +2 megapixel night vision camera + TOF 3D stereo camera, so that the mobile phone is also very dreamy in shooting.

Vivo NEX Dual Screen 4G Phablet  

With Vivo NEX dual-screen rear F/1.79 (main camera)+F/1.8 (night vision camera)+F/1.3 (TOF) aperture, Sony IMX363+CCD+OV02K CMOS sensor and LED supplementary light support, the Vivo NEX dual-screen version is quite brilliant in the night shooting effect.

With 8CM (12M/2M) macro lens, this Vivo NEX dual-screen version can capture details in still life shooting.

In addition, in portrait shooting, Vivo NEX dual-screen version supports beauty, AR shooting, filter, portrait background virtual, HDR, 3D beauty, filter photography, portrait light effect, portrait composition and other functions, so that Vivo NEX dual-screen version is advantageous in portrait shooting.

HUAWEI Honor Magic 2 4G Phablet 

In 2018, an amazing glorious Magic 2 came out. With its own "magic" halo of sliding screen innovative design, it can be said that we have a subversive understanding of the mobile phones of six cameras (the first three + the last three).

HUAWEI Honor Magic 2 4G Phablet 

This Honor Magic 2 has three cameras behind it - 16 megapixels + 24 megapixels + 16 megapixels, one of which is an ultra wide angle lens, so when taking a picture of a scene, there is always a sense of shock of "big scene" and large field of vision.

We see that Honor Magic 2 always has a "big picture" visual sense in the night scene shooting effect, thanks to the combination of 16 million pixels (color, f/1.8 aperture)+24 million pixels (black and white, f/1.8 aperture)+16 million pixels (ultra wide angle, f/2.2 aperture, support fixed focal length), even in the weak bright light, it can also make the picture clear, accurate and qualified.

In addition to the 16-megapixel f/2.2 aperture ultra-wide angle lens, Honor Magic 2 has the support of AIS anti-shake, three-camera hybrid zoom, streamer shutter, large aperture and other cool functions. When shooting scenery, the phone can not only show a very high level of light, but also take pictures of the maximum 5632*4224 pixels.

In portrait shooting, Honor Magic 2 has the exclusive functions of portrait lighting, AI photography, portrait mode, skin care and other exclusive modes, so that the portrait photos can retain details, but also optimize skin color.

OPPO R17 Pro

In recent years, OPPO, the leading brand of mobile phone in China, has demonstrated its innovative AI intelligent photography technology thoroughly on the latest OPPO R17 Pro.

OPPO R17 Pro 

This phone is really attractive. The combination of the AI smart and beautiful three-dimensional camera, 20 million pixels + 12 million pixels + TOF 3D stereo camera, and 25 million pixels front lens, makes this mobile phone very meaningful in photography and really helps you "define" beauty.

OPPO R17 PRO with AI intelligent dual camera can recognize 23 independent scenes and 864 scene combinations intelligently, and optimize them exclusively for different scenes.

In portrait shooting, OPPO R17 PRO has its own "advantages", which naturally has a hierarchical "AI portrait mode". It supports eight modes of self-defined beauty, thin face, makeup, and so on. With the support of AI intelligent learning your beauty habits, the portrait shooting performs well.

iPhone XS Max

As the most expensive and biggest-screen mobile phone in Apple's history, the XS Max series of the powerful configuration of the iPhone has also been upgraded in all aspects of photography that everyone cares about.

iPhone XS Max 

Compared with previous iPhone X and XS series, the XS Max has not changed much in terms of cameras. The "too real" self-photography of the iPhone XS Max with three back cameras still makes the majority of girls shun it.

It can be seen that the iPhone XS Max does have some advantages in still life and scenery shooting, especially in light processing. This is due to the six-piece dual-camera behind the iPhone XS Max --- 12 million pixels wide angle + long focal lens f/1.8 (wide angle) +f/2.4 (long focal) aperture. Combined with out-of-focus imaging and depth of field control, it makes the photographic picture quite layered.

iPhone XS Max scenery shooting in light processing 

Because of the double optical zoom plus up to 10 times digital zoom of the rear double 12 megapixel lens of the iPhone XS Max, as well as the difficulties of mixing infrared filters and smart HDR photos, the color restoration of the post-dual 12 megapixel lens of the iPhone XS Max is excellent in the portrait mode.


Huawei Mate 20, Vivo NEX dual-screen version, Honor Magic 2, OPPO R17 PRO and the iPhone XS Max are five flagship products that stand out in the mobile phone market in terms of photography. We believe that they are also recognized as good mobile phones by the majority of users.

Of course, we also believe that in the new year of 2019, more and more excellent mobile phone products will appear in our vision, so that you can continue to feel the joy of taking photos.
