December 12, 2022
This month has left us with the best phone reviews and images: Yes, there are high standards, but there are also handsets that deliver better results than expected.
These are the best camera phones to date, according to our review.
1. Huawei Mate 50 Pro
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro set the bar high, but its successor has not disappointed: the Huawei Mate 50 Pro (€1199) is Huawei’s umpteenth lesson in how a camera should be made, a toast to the sun that continues with the absence of Google services.
2. iPhone 14 Pro
The camera of the iPhone 14 Pro (€1319) is up 0.25 points over its previous-generation counterpart, the iPhone 13 Pro (€1159). One of the culprits is its new 48MP main sensor, which according to our review is “a joy, the competition is going to have a hard time beating this.”
3. iPhone 14 Pro Max
The same has happened with the successor to the iPhone 13 Pro Max (€1259), which is up 0.25 points with all the logic in the world, as it shares cameras with the Pro model. When we tested the iPhone 14 Pro Max (€1469) we highlighted its ProRAW, which marks a before and after in mobile photography.
4. Samsung Galaxy S22
It has one of the most complete applications on the market, with many zoom values for this terminal. In this generation, the camera has improved graphics cards, telephoto lenses, and a unique set of channels.
5. Google Pixel 7 Pro
First and we already warn you that it will not be the last Google Pixel this Pixel 7 Pro (899 euros), the most ambitious and current of the family, with assets such as the power of the Google Tensor G2, a 6.7″ pOLED panel at 120 Hz and three rear cameras capable of doing wonders.
6. Xiaomi 12 Pro
Xiaomi 12 Pro (968 euros), the Chinese firm finally enters the fight for the best camera offering an experience of the best we have tested. As a curiosity, Xiaomi has opted for the Sony IMX 707 in its 12 Pro, being the first mobile to hit the market with this sensor.
7. Vivo X80 Pro
Vivo has come out round with its Vivo X80 Pro (€1099), with cameras that offer very high performance, a great multimedia experience and finishes that hardly get dirty.
8. Huawei P50 Pro
Despite the absence of Google services weighs like a slab, the Huawei P50 Pro (€799, not available) shines in the photographic section offering a versatile and enormous quality proposal that translates into outstanding results, although with a monochrome sensor that does not end up giving much play.
9. Google Pixel 7
the Google Pixel 7 (649 euros) ups the ante in camera with two rear lenses capable of doing wonders. Likewise, some of its bases feature multimedia capabilities and an excellent design.
10. OPPO Find X5 Pro
OPPO Find X5 Pro (999€) recovers the lost place of its predecessor with an ambitious camera with a happy ending: Signing a deal with Hasselblad, developing its own imaging NPU and promising significant improvements to its latest camera.
11. Xiaomi 12
the sensor configuration does not seem as ambitious as the Xiaomi Pro, but we already told you that having a better sensor does not always mean taking better photos, 50 megapixel main sensor: Sony IMX 766, 1/1.56″ sensor size, f/1.9 aperture, 26mm wide angle. OIS. 5-megapixel telemacro sensor with autofocus, f/2.4 aperture, 50mm. 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor: 1/3.06″ sensor size, f/2.4 aperture, 123 degrees ultra-wide angle.
