Best Camera Phone for £200 - £300

    Best Android phone for camera? I have a A3 2015 version and would like to pay for something 10 times better camera wise. The phone it self is great apart from the camera. I don't mind it been a bit bigger than the A3 but don't want a huge phone.

    Any help appreciated.

    I was thinking of waiting for the HTC Play U but think be more than £300.


    Sony has good cameras but best camera atm is p9 Leica for around 340

    I went into carphone warehouse yesterday told me to stay away from a series phones if want better camera. opt for Samsung 6 or Xperia X that wa £299 last week it's closer to £400. Wont spend more than £300 want keep my sim only deal on as good value.

    Will consider anything that is an improvement camera wise and good battery life. I seen the p9 yesterday it looks a giant phone!

    Buy second hand, get much better value for money

    The Huawei P9 and its better looking sibling the Honor 8 have incredible dual lens cameras and are available for around £300.

    I own an Honor 8 and it is a fantastic phone.

    Some great quality photos' in this review of the P9 Link

    Huawei Honor 8 or P9 are available for around £300 and have great cameras.

    LG G4 has an amazing camera

    Imho....(I'm a published photographer) there is no phone on the market, yet, that can compete with a dedicated dslr. The Nikon D3300 and new kit lens can be purchased for under £300. Even with the kit lens is way better than any phone. Stick a Nikon 35MM G f1.8 lens and yours covered......

    Thanks everyone will check the LG G4.

    I am going buy a DSLR renagade i got a compact system Camera at min a panasonic lumix.

    So that be worth considering. I know a phone never be on par with a dslr. I still need an improved camera phone for concerts etc would never take a good camera to an event like that.

    Keep suggestions coming need buy in the next month

    Check out this site…les
    gives you an idea of what you can expect from a mobile

    The dual camera set up on the honor 8 is not the same as the p9 apparently, and you shouldn't expect to get the same quality photos, the reviews say it's more for special effects like false bokeh.

    Is the Honor 8 worth the extra £130 compared to the Honor 6x? Also does anyone know if I be able to get all apps I get now on my A3 or would I need wait for the update I read something about it other day. Anyone with Honor phones any tips appreciated.
