Top 10 best camera phone under 20000

The smartphone is now the main camera on the planet, including for photographers. With sensors, optics and algorithms in constant progression, the highest-end mobiles have buried conventional compact cameras, leaving to the photo brands only space in the most high-end devices or equipped with optical zooms, for the time inaccessible to smartphones.

Photo has become, before the size or quality of the screen, one of the main arguments of most phone manufacturers. Apple spends a lot of its keynotes, Huawei builds a joint research unit with Leica in Wetzlar, Germany, Motorola develops optional modules, and so on. The competition is tough and each brand is trying to win against others whether it is through super algorithms – we think of Google’s pixels, not available in France – special ultra-fast sensors (Samsung’s Dual Pixel), super optics (HTC) or even dual camera modules (Huawei, Apple, etc.).

Huawei P20 Pro: the triple back sensor

The Huawei P20 Pro breaks the established standards for photography with the integration of 3 backbone sensors that work wonders. These 3 sensors of 20, 40 and 8 megapixels with lenses opening respectively to f/1.6, f/1.8 and f / 2.4 merge to take the best shot possible, all with the bonus of HDR processing. Sample photos are available in our test.

Its 24 megapixel front sensor with a lens opening at f/2.0 is not left behind and offers pretty good shots.

As for its other features the smartphone is equipped with a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a definition of 2240 x 1080 pixels, a SoC Kirin 970 clocked at 2.36 GHz and supported by 6 GB of memory bright, 128GB of storage and a 4000 mAh battery.

The second camera is different: it is a 16-megapixel sensor that benefits from an aperture f/1.6 aperture angle 71 degrees (equivalent 30 mm 24 × 36), which is a first in telephony; enough to take beautiful shots with the bonus of a dual focusing system (laser and phase detection). Finally, the 16-megapixel camera is stabilized at the optics level thanks to a 3-axis stabilizer.

For the rest, it is equipped with a 6-inch screen, a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.45 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of storage and a battery of 3300 mAh.
