Top five camera phones that worth the money

[Updated on: 23 September 2017. We update this post monthly unless a better deal is found anytime during the middle of the month.]

Skip to the List. When judging a camera for its picture and video capturing ability, you can't reach a verdict by looking at the pictures on its native display screen, you need to view the pictures and videos on a much larger screen (for instance on Samsung UN65MU9000). Only then you can judge the picture and video quality of a particular camera. After all, larger displays will be the family albums for your children and by the time they grow up, they all will have 101-inch or larger screen TVs on their walls. And surely you wouldn't want them to find the pictures you take today to be horribly small, grainy, blurry, and pixelated.

At this point, you might be thinking that it would be a good idea to buy a good digital camera spending $400 or more. But there's no point in buying digital cameras anymore. Latest phones come equipped with better cameras and technologies. They feature better still photo and video recording technology than most digital cameras priced under $400. Optical zooming ability is the only feature where mobile phone cameras lag behind. You have to buy zoom lens; but class zoom lenses for mobile phones are still scarce and pricey. If zooming ability is not what you are looking for in a camera, it will be better for you to opt for mobile phone cameras than the digital cameras. Here is our recommendation on the best camera phones in the market.
