Best Smartphone Cameras For Travel | O2
The top five phone cameras for travelling
With cutting-edge camera features and slick editing capabilities, these smartphones will capture your holiday at its finest.
Google Pixel 7 Pro
If you prize crisp, detailed images above all else, Google Pixel 7 Pro is for you. The triple rear camera comes equipped with a 30x Super Res Zoom, which lets you take high-quality photos by zooming in – capturing sharp details even from far away. Macro Focus picks up on tiny details (think leaves on trees or the texture on a wall) without distracting from the subject of a photo. And the Magic Eraser feature lets you edit out aspects of a photo that you’d rather weren’t there (like a photobomber or a less-than-attractive pigeon).
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
Thanks to a pro-grade 200MP rear camera, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra captures flawless, vivid photos even when the sun goes down. That’s thanks to an intelligent pixel sensor, which adapts to low light with Nightography mode. At the same time, the camera lens tones down flare (when a bright light, such as the moon or a streetlamp, creates a pale haze or starburst effect on a photo). Planning a holiday with lots of Big Nights Out™? Then this is the one for clear, atmospheric shots from dusk until dawn.
Motorola Razr 40
Many of us will have fond memories of the original Motorola Razr from back in the day. Now, Motorola is tapping into the Y2K revival with Motorola Razr 40. This very modern flip phone has a massive external preview screen and a patented hinge that’s sturdy yet smooth. Prop it open to take hands-free photos and record videos at all angles. Fit more friends into selfies or snap dazzling views thanks to the Ultrawide lens. And with the Long Exposure effect, you can capture motion blurs, light trails and other cool effects to transform your holiday pics into works of art.
Samsung Galaxy A54 5G
The most affordable option on this list, Samsung Galaxy A54 5G comes with not one, not two, but three cameras. Use the 50MP main camera for stunningly bright, clear pics when you’re out and about during the day. On a crowded beach or bustling piazza? OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) ensures photos and vids stay blur-free, even at frantic moments. For group shots and sunsets, switch to the 12MP ultra-wide camera. And finally, the Light Boost feature has you covered for perfect clarity in night-time photos. Save up to £144 on the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G if you buy a Pay Monthly plan before 30 August 2023. Terms and conditions apply.
Google Pixel Fold
Google Pixel Fold looks like a Pixel on the outside, but – you guessed it – folds out to reveal an expansive 7.6-inch screen. Its camera is equipped with Real Tone technology, which adjusts colour balance and lighting so that all skin tones are represented beautifully. Got a great photo that’s a little blurry? The Photo Unblur feature uses AI to sharpen things up. And if you want to take a group shot without roping in a stranger, you can set Pixel Fold on a surface in tabletop mode. Just set a timer and jump in the shot or say: “Hey Google. Take a photo.” (This works for timelapse videos, too, if you want to record a sunset.) Look, no hands!
