Samsung cameras are famously some of the best to ever be fitted into a smartphone, but which of its many devices has the best Samsung camera? We're going to take you through some of the most recent Samsung releases, so you can decide which phone has the best camera for you.
Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22+
When it comes to camera quality, there’s not much that separates these two excellent smartphones. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22+ are both equipped with a triple-lens camera setup, giving these handsets the ability to capture a myriad of photographic styles in professional-grade quality.
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+’s camera system includes a 50MP wide-angle lens, 10MP telephoto lens, and 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view. Take full advantage of each lens’s versatility, and capture anything from family portraits to stunning landscape shots - it’s convenient and super simple to operate.
What’s more, these two handsets come with 30x space zoom, a brand-new feature which allows you to get closer than ever to your subject, and see every intricate detail of your image in high definition.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
Samsung’s flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, certainly doesn’t disappoint in the camera department. There’s an impressive quad-camera lens, including a 108MP wide camera, 10MP periscope telephoto lens, 10MP telephoto lens, and 12MP ultra-wide lens. You’ll have enough tools in the locker to experiment with what Samsung's Nightography feature – and capture stunning, crystal-clear images in low light.
Plus, the Galaxy S22 Ultra overshadows the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+’s zooming capabilities, reaching 100x space zoom – so you can get up close and personal with a subject, without moving a muscle.
Don’t forget to take full advantage of the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s outstanding 40MP selfie camera, enabling you to take quality snaps during a night out with your friends. What’s more, the front-facing camera can shoot up to 60fps in 4K, and when combined with the expansive 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen, can create quality content for any aspiring vlogger.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE
Despite being the more affordable option, in comparison to the premium Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is armed with a sophisticated triple-lens camera system, comprised of an 8MP rear telephoto lens, 12MP wide-angle camera, and 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view. This combination of tech enables you to get the whole gang together for a high-definition group shot – with no one out of frame.
And that’s not all, the Galaxy S21 FE comes with a built-in night mode feature which allows you to take crisp photographs at any time of day, even in low-light surroundings. By automatically enhancing the images brightness, the handset transforms your content into clear, well-defined photographs.
Don’t worry about any photobombers ruining your images aesthetic, the dedicated Object Eraser tool means you can easily remove anything unsightly in the background, giving you full control over your content.
Meanwhile, videographers and photographers can also enjoy the brilliant optical image stabilisation feature. Thanks to OIS technology, this ensures your content is free from any shakiness during handheld video recording and photography.
Samsung Galaxy A52s
The Samsung Galaxy A52s is another example of an affordable midrange handset, with an impressive canon of camera lenses - so making memories has never been easier. The Galaxy A52s’ effective quad-lens camera consists of a 64MP wide lens, 12MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro lens for incredibly detailed closeups, and 5MP depth lens to bring your shots to life. Not to mention the exceptional selfie camera, so you can take great pictures with your friends wherever you are in the world, and in HD quality too.
It’s a good thing the Galaxy A52s is built with the dependable 4500mAh battery, giving you plenty of time to explore its wonderful range of camera modes, like Super slow-motion mode. This clever feature makes it possible for you to incorporate some creative flair into your video content. Here, the handset automatically modifies your videos, slowing it down up by up to 32 times its normal speed.
Another exciting mode is the Hyper lapse feature, which operates in a similar way to time-lapse, but instead records at various frame rates, which adjust to what you're recording.
Samsung Galaxy S21/S21+
Whether you prefer the Samsung Galaxy S21, or the slightly larger S21+, you'll find identical Samsung camera systems on both handsets. Designed by Samsung to make photography and videography a breeze on your smartphone, this triple-lens camera setup is sure to have all your needs covered.
From the moment you open up the 12MP+12MP+64MP rear camera, you're sure to be impressed. The main 12MP lens on both S21 devices comes with optical image stabilisation to keep your shots in focus, while the second 12MP ultra-wide lens helps you fit more into the frame without needing to take a step back. The final 64MP telephoto lens is all you need to create a sense of depth in your shots too, and it's perfect for portraits.
Photography features like Single Take, Night Mode and Super Steady Mode help to take your photos and videos to the next level - ensuring you can capture a single moment at multiple angles, shoot in darkness and steady any unwanted shakiness in a recording. Speaking of video, the S21 and S21+ are capable of filming in 8K - the highest resolution currently available. You can even edit in 8K using the S21 duo too, without having to import footage to a different device.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
The premium handset from Samsung's 2021 flagship series, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra certainly doesn't hold back when it comes to cameras. Front and back you can enjoy the very best Samsung photography tech, starting with the outstanding triple-lens rear camera. The rear camera system not only features a cutting-edge dual telephoto lens, but it includes an advanced Laser AF sensor to keep your shots focused.
The main 108MP wide lens on the S21 Ultra is the star of the show, and it's more than capable of producing beautiful, professional-quality photos in any environment. Every detail can be captured with accuracy, and colours will always appear true-to-life even in bright or low-light environments. In fact, with Samsung's Night Mode switched on you can even shoot in extremely dark conditions.
Accompanying the 108MP main lens, there's also a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a dual-lens 10MP+10MP telephoto camera with both 3x and 10x optical zoom. With a few taps you can produce amazing portrait photos or nail closeups from mere centimetres away.
You're more than covered when it comes to video too. Just like its predecessor - the S20 Ultra - the S21 Ultra can record 8K video (that's four times better than 4K), 12-bit RAW video, and you can even edit in 8K directly on the handset. Super Steady Mode will be your best friend for action shots - just switch it on to instantly stabilise your footage.
Of course, we can't forget about selfie cam either. The wide-lens 40MP camera is guaranteed to capture your good side, and auto focus on the front will help to counteract any unwanted blur.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
A new Samsung release for 2020, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has been designed with two brilliant cameras on the front and back. When it comes to ultra-clear video calls, vlogging and picture-perfect selfies, the 32MP front camera has it covered, while the triple-lens rear camera system offers everything you could need to take professional-looking photos day and night.
Diving into the rear camera system further, you'll find three unique lenses. The first is the main 12MP wide-angle lens, the second is a 12MP lens with an ultra-wide field of view while the final 8MP telephoto lens is a must for taking closeups, macro shots and recreating the popular blurred background effect known as bokeh.
The camera has some impressive zoom capabilities, with both 30x Space Zoom and 3x Optical Zoom available. You can focus on the smallest details, or get closer to action happening further away without having to worry about sacrificing photo quality.
There are plenty of useful, Samsung-exclusive photography features built into the handset. Night Mode, with some help from Samsung's largest dual-pixel sensor yet, means you can shoot in dim conditions and still receive a vibrant, well-lit shot, while the innovative Single Take ensures you'll never miss the winning shot. Once you switch the feature on, just press the shutter button and the handset will automatically take the best photos, alongside videos ranging from 3 to 10 seconds in length.
