Before the days of smartphones — if you can remember such a time — taking a great photo was a labor-intensive process. You’d have buy a fancy camera and editing software for your desktop computer, and invest some serious time and energy into learning how to use them.


A few things to consider from a photography perspective

Image quality
Image quality What do the photos coming out of the camera look like? Check for things like sharpness, contrast, saturation and color (white balance and tint). Online reviews with photo examples are a great help here!

If you’re looking to share or print your images at larger sizes, as a very general rule more megapixels on a phone is better.

Consider things like screen size, resolution, and the quality of the contrast. These’ll all make a difference in how easy it is to use your camera, especially in tricky lighting conditions, like low light and direct sun. They’ll also influence how similar the image on your phone looks to that same image when it’s posted online or printed out.

Image stabilization
These days, some smartphone cameras come equipped with image stabilization – a function that reduces blurriness caused by movement of the camera. This can make a big difference in the quality of your photos and videos, especially in low-light conditions!

Video quality
Almost all camera phones can shoot HD video (1080P). But some camera phones support shooting at faster frame rates (for slow motion video). And a few cutting edge smartphone cameras can shoot at an ultra high definition (4K) resolution.

As a general rule, if you choose a more popular phone you’ll have more options when it comes to apps and accessories, and you’ll have an easier time tracking down replacement parts (like USB cables and chargers).

Operating systems & device compatibility
If you’re used to working with a particular operating system or want your phone to be compatible with your other devices, you may want to choose a phone from the same brand.

Storage space
If you plan to take a lot of photos (and/or use a lot of apps) you may want to opt for a phone with lots of storage space. Our current phones have 32 GB of space, and we wouldn’t want any less.

Battery life
Your battery life will depend on a lot of things (like how much you use your phone and what apps you run in the background), but it’s worth getting an idea of what the maximum battery life is.

Other camera features
Do you care about having burst mode, exposure control, panorama capabilities, etc.? If so, do your research and see whether the phone you’re eyeing comes with those features (or a relevant app).

As a general rule, the better the camera features, the more expensive the phone will be. If you’re serious about smartphone photography, it may be worth it to pay the premium. But don’t lose sight of the fact that smartphones still don’t match the quality of DSLRs or even advanced point-and-shoots (the photos from which you can share on platforms like Instagram and Flickr).
