Tried iphone 7 plus camera, it was really good and detailed. Is there any android phone (preferably Chinese phone because of the cost) that have just as good or even better cameras (front and back)?

LGG4 pretty good.

best phone for camera is samsung galaxy s7 edge.dont bother with crappy apple phones.if your willing to wait till february the samsung galaxy s8 will be out.

The newer Xiaomi phones are pretty OK, but not a patch on the Samsungs.

I havent really played much with the camera in my new Note 3 SE yet though, I am basing my assessment on my old Note 1 (3G), which was about iPhone 4s level in picture quality.

xiaomi mi5s has the same sensor as the pixel
huwaei cameras are supposed to be pretty good
lg g5 consistently comes out top in most tests
however, if you want the best phone camera, has to be the lumias! - lumia 950 gets my pick

P9 camera is dual lense lecia camera and it's amazing.i am currently using it as a camera only as am on holiday and dint have time to switch over from my s7 edge. It puts Samsung to shame

galaxy S7. It isn't Chinese, but it's worth the extra.

Lumina 950 XL is best I ever used. Then S7 and 3rd Nexus 6P

One plus 3t 13 megapixel front facing and back facing camera

Moto xplay I use has a 21mp camera
Quite a few People love my photos and can't believe I look on a phone

I use the camera mainly for indoor or even low light condition - would it change my options?

Any android phone will beat apple rubbish phones

Any android phone will beat apple rubbish phones



What's the point in that comment, clearly a £20 android phone is not going to beat an iPhone. On the other hand various flagship android phones will beat some apple handsets.

But your initial comment is pretty meaningless

Oukitel U8 and upwards have great cameras and cost less than £100

Ive seen the nubia z11 and sony xperia z5 compact mentioned on review sites as both having good cameras

Can I ask what would be the best for a lower price, say £200, as looking for a small reasonably priced phone, 5" or less, with a good camera

wileyfox swift. beautiful camera when focused

I have a Moto x style and it produces great photos. Takes a bit of getting used too though as everything is manual when taking photos

sorry for keeping asking. I hope to get a 5.5" or larger phone. Mi5 looks good and its price, but too small. How is MiMax?

Hey I just bought one. For some reason, battery life is not as great as advertised. Selfie camera is good but the main camera is terrible.What's your budget?

Sorry, but these guys are pretty much frauds - as has been discussed in many other websites. The pixel camera has so many issues with it! Any website which gives an 808 a 77... the greatest phone camera ever created, is a joke. They also created a 1" sensor to go with phones, and started taking lawsuit action against anyone posting negative reviews!

Just saw your post. Watch most YouTube reviewers and they all agree that g5/s7 has the best camera at the moment. Chinese wise - Huawei p9/honor 8 are pretty good. The mi5s also has a good camera. For Chinese phones, kimovil is the best site to get good prices.

kimovil.com/en/…i5s - however it's 5.15 inches
Honor 8 - 5.2 inches and was a hot deal on here for 289
S7 edge is the one if you want a large screen with the best camera but it's above your budget, around 400
Google pixel cameras have quite a few issues at the moment so would avoid...
