Best phone for travel photography?

Recommended Posts

What according to you guys is the best phone for travel photography.

Do share some pictures from your phone, I would like to see, along with phone name.

 

Currently, I'm using IPhone 6.(16 gigs)

I have Nikon D5200, which I never use.

 

Yesterday, I saw a conversation in WhatsApp group,
Along with it Amazon + Flipkart deals ignited a spark in me to purchase a new phone.

 

Primary requirement : Travel photography

lol,
I'm in same dilemma. 

My one plus 3T, successfully completed 2 years. 

Can still use it for 1 more year, but the camera on it is pathetic.

Lens is completely blurred, due to some issue. 

 

Also, I have planned to upgrade my camera kit from D3200 to full frame.

Due to budget constraints, I backed out.

 

Considered GoPro Hero 7 for easy of use.

But i couldn't find any use case compared to mobile.

 

Now there are plenty of discounts going on,
I'm considering following options, based on Camera.

 

1. Pixel 3

2. IPhone X

3. Samsung Note 9

4. One plus(6/6T)

wow, those pictures look better than my D5200.

I can see lot of noise on second picture. (due to Samsung Image sharpening) , I'm seeing this on a laptop.

May be in mobile, noise wont be visible. 

 

First picture is too good, excellent details.

My preference after using series of OP phones, wait and go for One Plus 6T. Heard 6 has some issues

Major issue with Mobile photography is during low light conditions. 

HDR mode helped to overcome this issue to the certain extent. 

 

I would suggest you to get a phone from Pixel lineup.
If your primary requirement is camera.

 

OnePlus 6/6T is value for money. Excellent package.

I'm always inclined towards Apple for photography. (humans)

Missed on the focus points but the image itself is very impressive.

Please share some more night shots.

Heard it is great feature from the YouTube reviews.

If it can it give 50% of DSLR, it will be a great achievement.

I somehow like Apple camera over any Android options. 

Its been a year since I turned ON my camera :P

 

Can you change the tile to share your "best mobile picture?"
Or should I create a new post?

Create a new post, it will be helpful for others to judge.

Also add some rules. :)

Else it will be mess.
