Rating of the best cameraphones( smartphones with a good camera) for 2017.Top 10
Smartphones with a very good camera and special photographic functions are usually called camera phones. The level of photo and video of camera phones is growing every year and is gradually approaching the level of professional digital photo and video cameras. There are also cases of direct cooperation of manufacturers of professional photo and video equipment with manufacturers of smartphone cameras. For example, the leading Chinese manufacturer of smartphones Huawei in the development of the new flagship P10, presented in late February 2017, collaborated with the famous German camera company Leica and no less famous American manufacturer of GoPro video cameras.
This ranking will feature the best cameraphones for the summer of 2017.When ranking positions in the ranking, comparative tests of smartphone cameras from such resources as dxomark.com, hi-tech.mail.ru were taken into account. Both professional reviews and blind camera comparisons were taken into account( when ordinary people compare photos taken by different models of phones without knowing which photo was taken by this or that device).In this case, the advantage is given to professional assessments, becauseonly they can evaluate the correspondence of the photograph to the original, and the outside viewer is often inclined to give priority to bright colors and great contrast, which can not always correspond to reality.
Many people will look for the 7th iPhone in the rating, but you should immediately disappoint them: of the seventh iPhone is not in the rating, becauseand professional reviews, and blind tests show that in 2017 Apple's flagship camera is inferior to at least a dozen smartphones on the Android .For example, in the Dxomark rating the camera of the 7th iPhone divides the 12th place with the 2015 model Samsung S6 Edge. Already on the basis of this fact you can understand that the quality of the cameras Apple lags behind Samsung for 2 years. Blind tests also show that the camera of the 7th iPhone in 2017 does not stand competition. In the hi-tech.mail.ru portal conducted in April 2017, the blind test of the flagship cameras of the seventh iPhone took the penultimate place. The editorial staff of the portal agreed with the opinion of its readers: "The yellowish and dark photos from the iPhone 7 Plus were not liked by many people, the camera suffers from incorrect white balance determination, which influenced the result." The pictures have good detail and sharpness( except text), but before the flagshipsAndroid is already out of reach. "
LG G6 64GB
The average price is 42,300 rubles. The Korean flagship went on sale in late March 2017 and today received 76% of fives on reviews in the Yandex-Market.
LG G6 follows the trend of the dual main camera, but offers, probably, the best solution of all available. If usually the main cameras are not the same in quality, and the second main camera is needed only to simulate the software effect of strong blurring of the background( bokeh), LG G6 developers in general have abandoned this effect. Here, both main cameras are of equal quality( 13 megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor), but they have different lenses: one standard with a 71 ° viewing angle and the other is ultra-wide with a viewing angle of 125 ° and a f / 2.4 aperture number. Due to this, the lens is able to capture as much space as possible in the frame where it is needed. Switching between two cameras occurs instantly and without delays. To do this, just click on the special icon in the viewfinder.
LG G6 took part in two blind tests conducted among readers of hitech.mail.ru in 2017.In the April test, the Korean flagship took the third place after Huawei P10 and Samsung Galaxy S8.The editorial office of the portal in the professional evaluation also gave LG G6 a bronze, and the first two places were occupied by Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8.In the June blind test LG G6 again took the third place, this time after Honor 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S8.The editorial team gave the first place to Samsung Galaxy S8, and LG G6 shared the second place with HTC U11 and Honor 8 Pro.
The 5-megapixel front camera also has an enlarged( up to 100 °) viewing angle, which allows you to do selfies with a good grip of the surrounding space even without the use of a selfie stick. Also this will allow you to get into the frame of more friends in a group self.
Like Samsung, LG showed the world a much-updated flagship, compared with last year's G5.From the startling modularity of the G5, the South Korean company decided to refuse, while offering a new interesting solution: the screen in the LG G6 is the world's first IPS display with QHD + resolution( 2880x1440) with a non-standard aspect ratio of 18: 9( 2: 1).The ratio of the screen to the total area of the front panel is almost the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8, and the LG G6 case with 5.7-inch screen has dimensions smaller than last year's 5.3-inch G5.In this case, LG did not remove the brand name from the front panel, for it there was a place. The buttons on the front panel, like the Galaxy S8, are touch sensitive, not physical.
Other characteristics: Android 7.0 operating system with the proprietary shell of LG UX 6.0, 64 GB of permanent and 4 GB of RAM.There is a slot for memory cards with the support of a fantastic volume - 2 TB( combined with a slot for the second SIM-card).The capacity of the battery is 3300 mAh. The processor is quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. At first glance, it's surprising that the processor is not the newest, but it does not cope with any applications and games for Android that are available today, so, apparently, LG did not consider it necessary to reinvent the wheeland increase the cost of its flagship the newest processor. The fingerprint reader is located on the back panel.
The editorial board of the 4PDA portal awarded the LG G6 the "Best Look" award for its excellent design and ergonomics, while noting: "LG engineers have made one of the most user-friendly smartphones with a large display that combines aesthetics and certifiedexternal influences design. "

Fans of the South Korean brand had to wait for a new flagship for a year( last year's flagship Galaxy Note 7 does not count, because Samsung was forced to remove this model from sales soon after they started due to battery problems) after the appearance in March 2016year Galaxy S7.As a result, the output of the Galaxy S8 caused an incredible excitement: for the first two days the number of pre-orders on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus( the increased version of the model) was 550,000 pieces( for comparison: Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the first 2 days were ordered by 100 thousand people).Of course, the one-year waiting period of the flagship itself can not cause such an excitement, for example, Apple stably releases flagships once a year, but the sales of the seventh iPhone were rather weak due to the fact that the new iPhone was for the most part the same eggs, Only in the profile, if you compare it with the 6th iPhone. In Samsung did not repeat the mistakes of a competitor and presented a truly innovative model that can not be confused with any smartphone that is available on the market today.

At 0.3 inches increased the diagonal of the screen, also significantly increased the resolution, while the phone itself, paradoxically, even became a little less and easier. This effect was achieved due to the fact that the screen now occupies more than 80% of the front panel area: physical buttons disappeared( they became touchscreens), the inscription Samsung, there is almost no side frames, the space freed up and took up the screen. The amount of permanent memory has doubled. However, there is a small step back: the capacity of the battery has decreased, so the battery life has become shorter, while it is about the same as, for example, the seventh iPhone. As for the cameras, Samsung decided to ignore the trend of the dual main camera in the flagship model, which was followed by Apple, Huawei, LG and in the old fashioned way has one main camera, improved compared to the already excellent S7 camera. Camera S8 received a new sensor Sony IMX333 12 mp with DualPixel technology. The front camera( 8 megapixel) is equipped with a high-aperture lens for ideal selfies, even at night, and also supports intelligent autofocus with the function of face recognition. By the way, face recognition has become one of the interesting features of the S8: now you do not have to use a fingerprint scanner to unlock the smartphone, just show your face to the smartphone. There is a third way: scanning the iris of the eye( however, this method will be inconvenient in that it wears glasses or contact lenses).
Resource Dxomark put the camera Galaxy S8 88 points, this is the third result.

We can safely recommend it to mobile photographers. "In the June blind test Galaxy S8 again took second place, this time after Honor 8 Pro.

That is, exposure settings, shutter speeds, ISO do not get lost at the slightest movement of the phone, and the built-in algorithms do not recognize this as a change of composition. This is often found in Chinese smartphones, and even in some flagships, for example, Google Pixel or LG G6.differ in brightness or graininess - ka
When shooting against the sun or bright sky HDR Boost "pulls" the details even in the darkest areas. The dynamic range is as wide as in the pictures with Google Pixel.
