In the last few years, phones have become the primary devices for taking photos and videos. Smartphones have improved not only in design and performance, but also in imaging capabilities. The best cameras aren’t about the megapixel count or how many lenses a phone has. Factors such as apertures, software, OIS, improved sensors, and artificial intelligence have become far more important than megapixel count. Let’s take a look at the five best camera phones of 2018. A few of these devices were released last year, but they are still one of the best camera phones you can buy this year.
