We are slowly moving towards a future where the mobile phone will replace oxygen and bag the title of the one thing that a human needs to survive. But it’s not yesterday that mobile phones overthrew the usage of the camera in a normal “non-photographer” household.

We can accept that the camera specifications of a mobile phone to hold a huge part in the selection for one’s mobile phone. And we think the companies agree with this analogy. Thus to hold their stand in the mobile industry many companies are vastly improving not only their camera specifications but also the number of cameras on it.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro. To be released in Late October and early November around the world boasts of three rare cameras attached to it for a better photography experience. But you are highly mistaken if you think it’s the only mobile phone with such outrageous camera features. LG has also announced the release of LG V40 in the early weeks of October which does have 5 rear cameras mounted on it. These phones do seem to be competing with the Samsung Galaxy A9 which does have impressive camera features itself.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Mate 20 Pro will satisfy your thirst for great photos. P20 Pro ushered in this era of great Huawei cameras, and the Mate 20 Pro inherits its 40MP wide-angle f/1.8 lens and 8MP, f/2.4 3x telephoto with OIS. Once again, the rear cameras all have Leica lenses, though unlike the P20, the front ones do not. Rounding out that trio of rear-facing cameras is the new star, an ultra-wide 16MP, f/2.2 lens.

It expands the phone’s toolbox, letting us take a wider array of photos from limited positions. Even for casual shooting, it made life easier when trying to fit a bunch of far-flung elements in the same photo. The ultra-wide-angle lens isn’t without drawbacks: the edges of shots can be slightly warped, and it doesn’t seem to benefit from the semi-HDR contrast effects that benefit shots taken with the other lenses. Also, expect to lose a little light contrast and background nuance if you’re shooting in grey or low-light situations. In this niche, Google Pixel 3 and iPhone XS are better. But the Mate 20 Pro’s overall low-light performance is superior to that of most other smartphones we tested, especially with its seconds-long-exposure Night Mode. This isn’t too surprising given how much the P20 Pro’s monochrome sensor improved its low-light photos.

LG V40

The LG V40 puts photography first with five cameras on a single Android phone. This gives you varying shot perspectives, be it a group selfie or a rear camera photo.

The camera modes and various tricks to bring out the hidden photographer in you especially on that 6.4 inch OLED screen, The LG V40 ThinQ is the first phone to squeeze an outrageous five cameras into a single device to give you more shooting options – even if you think you already have enough photo choices. This also happens to be the perfect metaphor for LG’s ambitions in a smartphone market dominated by Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and a few others.

It’s another option whether you think you need one or not. Luckily, the LG V40 has a few camera tricks to keep it from being an also-ran Android phone, unlike this year’s unsurprising, risk-averse LG G7 ThinQ. It captures larger pixels and combines a regular, telephoto, and a super-wide-angle camera in a rear three-camera array.

There’s also a normal and wide-angle camera pair on the front for selfies and group selfies, respectively. You’re getting five different perspectives from the LG V40 cameras, and several unique modes.

Triple Shot simultaneously snaps pictures from all three rear cameras, so you don’t have to worry about which lens is best for a particular shot.

Cine Shot allows you to create six-second cinemagraphs to partially animate still photos. And Cine Video, first seen on the LG V30, is back to make it easier to fluidly zoom in anywhere, not just the dead center of the camera screen.

Samsung Galaxy A9

This model of Samsung falls back comparatively when it comes to the number of cameras and the exceptional angle and features they provide. But this olden goldie released in late 2015 definitely holds its ground steady in front of the new age camera phones.

This does have features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Digital image stabilization, Face detection, Touch to focus along with Exposure Compensation and ISO control.

It also has the image resolution of 4128 X 3096 Pixels with the autofocus functionality for the easy-going photographers who trust their phones with knowing what’s right to do. It also includes continuous shooting mode similar to the other two phones mentioned above and High Dynamic Range or HDR mode.

With a 13 MP rear camera this phones selfie camera doesn’t disappoint either standing its ground at 8 MP. Along with all these features it has a physical aperture of F1.9, optical image stabilization Led Flash and 1920×1080 at 30 fps video recording. Now we know this mobile phone falls short quite a bit in comparison to the other two but the price factor also plays a huge role in this phone. This mobile gives you really good camera features for a really affordable price. That does put it into a strong competition with the other two.

Well though Camera is an important factor we do know that other factors are also to be evaluated thoroughly while making a choice. Please refer to the table below for more information.
