If you’re an avid Instagrammer, the first thing you’ll look for in a new phone, is a really great camera. Here’s a list of five of the best phones for Instagram:
1. Samsung Galaxy S8
It’s tough to get a good night-time shot with a smartphone. But the Samsung Galaxy S8 captures clear images of your nocturnal adventures with a bright F1.7 lens and large 1.4mm pixels that let in more light after dark. It features a 12 MP rear lens and lets you go pro: you can adjust the ISO, shutter speed, exposure value, colour tone, manual focus and white balance. The Samsung Galaxy S8 also sports an 8 MP selfie camera with an auto-focus feature that tracks faces to ensure no one’s being cropped out of the moment. Food mode is an added bonus for foodies.
2. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Like the Galaxy S8, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge’s camera performs well after dark, taking clear photos that capture every detail. Even fleeting moments are no match for this advanced camera: The Dual Pixel Sensor enables fast, smooth autofocus. Motion photo and Motion Panorama breathe life into your snaps and let you capture unforgettable movements. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is also geared towards taking even more gorgeous selfies with functions such as Selfie Spotlight to highlight your best features and Selfie Flash to enhance your looks with a soft glow.
3. Apple iPhone 8 Plus
The iPhone continues to be one of the most popular camera phones. The iPhone 8 Plus has an even more advanced, 12-megapixel camera that lets you zoom in up to 10 x for photos. Selfie mode is enhanced with sharper foregrounds and softer backgrounds, and you can add striking studio lighting effects.
4. Huawei P10 Plus
The Huawei P10 Plus is described as a “portrait studio in your pocket”. The camera has been co-engineered with the iconic Leica brand and features an advanced front camera that captures twice as much light for gorgeous selfies, 24/7. It automatically detects groufies and switches to a wide-angle view so that every shared moment is perfectly captured. With features such as 3D facial detection, hybrid zoom and dynamic illumination, the Huawei P10 Plus aims for Insta-worthy images, whether it’s crisp colour photos or classic black-and-white snaps.
5. LG V30
This phone features a 16 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front snapper. Glass camera lenses and a 10-bid HDR image sensor ensure colours come out as crisp as IRL. LG V30 come with a few handy features and filters to up your Instagram game. With Pop-out Picture Mode you can use the dual rear cameras to automatically add frame effects to your shots. There’s also a food mode and eight video preset filters to choose from. Selfie mode is activated with a simple hand gesture, while Selfie Light and Beauty Shot ensure your portraits are well-lit and beautiful.
