Contrary to popular perception, there can really be no single supreme handset you can buy when it comes to picking the best smartphone camera. Cameras are a complex matter, and when combined with peculiarities of mobile phones and touch screens and everything else, picking superiors can be almost impossible.

The most reliable way to rank smartphones is to compare a standard rating that is based in objective factual evaluation. DXO Scores fit the requirement, due to their comprehensive study of multiple aspects of the smartphone and unbiased reporting of facts and how each camera performs in different conditions. A comprehensive list of the best smartphones is given in the infographic at the end.

There is more to a smartphone than just its megapixel count, as any photographer worth their salt will tell you. There are ways to capture your moods and environment in high definition even if your camera isn’t the highest in its MP count. So to really understand how well a camera can perform, you need to see how other factors like aperture length, processor and software fare.

Google’s Pixel and Pixel 2, for example, have admirable aperture and software optimisation, that make the camera really great for sharp rendering on photos and getting your video clips really crisp and stable. There are phones like the iPhone 8 Plus which come with dual lens that makes for a really helpful option when you want your smartphone to help you click blurs, capture more depth or produce bokeh effects.

There is a huge variety in the markets to sort through, but ratings like the DXO score can help you figure out the best smartphone for your needs.
