Nowadays, everyone has a smartphone, and the camera technology inside these pocketable devices has improved extremely in the last few years. On Facebook alone, We share more than two billion photos every day. The ability to quickly capture and share precious memories is really important. The smartphone is usually the camera we have on hand, so it has to do well. Today's dual-camera smartphones use the second lens for bokeh effects, improved data, optical zoom, and wide angle capture. The lenses may work well together or act as separate cameras providing different results.
There is, even more, differentiation in the smartphones when you look at the camera software, with Apple ever since, providing the basics, while LG and Huawei provide a huge amount of settings and controls and that includes manual mode. If you're wondering what the best camera phones are, then wonder no longer, because here are some of the few dual camera smartphones we recommend you might consider.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
The camera software works with the lenses to bring bokeh effects you may be used to on a DSLR. The photos look great much of the time, the software can mess up the blur affect at times when colors blend in or there is not much separation between the focal subject and background items. Overall, the iPhone 7 Plus camera is simple to use yet produces great results.
LG doesn't get the respect it deserves, which led the Android camera revolution with the LG G4 in early 2015. Ever since, it has released the LG G5, LG V10, and LG V20. The LG V20 has the same dual rear camera setup as the LG G5, with the standard and wide-angle lenses.
Huawei Mate 9
The Huawei P9 was the first dual-camera setup from Huawei which partnership with Leica. The Huawei Mate 9 functions much like the P9, with the addition of OIS support for both rear cameras. The Mate 9 cameras work great together with the majority of the time, with the second monochrome lens gives contrast and detail to make your color photos even sharper and crisp.
The Honor 8 is also produced by Huawei and provides a very similar experience to the Mate 9 and P9. Meanwhile, it also has one of the rear cameras as a monochrome camera, there is no ability to shoot just with this lens. However, there is no Leica partnership on the Honor 8.
Other smartphones with dual cameras which include the HTC One M9+, ZTE Axon, LG V10 with dual front-facing shooters, the Huawei P9 Plus, Lenovo Tab 2 Pro, and also Xiaomi Redmi Pro. It's more likely we will continue to see dual rear cameras in smartphones as the technology continues to improve and gets better in time.
