1.- Samsung Galaxy S6 (86 points)
The current flagship of Samsung, until the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + are released, has the first place among the phones with the best camera on the market. The great optimization of this, along with its 16 megapixel resolution, improves both the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Of course, next to this would also be the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, the version with a curved screen whose camera has the same features. It seems that the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + will have the same camera, and something similar would happen with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, so this list would be occupied by more Samsung phones as soon as they are launched.
2.- Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (83 points)
Despite having been on sale for almost a year now, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is still today the second mobile with the best camera on the market. Again, this is a 16 megapixel camera, although not as well optimized as that of the Samsung Galaxy S6. In any case, it is surprising that a mobile that has been on the market for a year, continues to outperform many rivals that have come later.
3.- Motorola Moto X Style (83 points)
And here comes the great news, a mobile that perhaps we would never have believed would make it so high on this list. The price of the Motorola Moto X Style will be around 500 euros, but despite this, it comes with a 20.7 megapixel camera considered the third best in the world of smartphones. And this is not just anything, because it supposes to surpass mobiles like the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus, or even others like Sony that even have the same sensor that this Motorola has.
4.- Sony Xperia Z3 + (82 points)
However, it was impossible that in a list of the phones with the best camera on the market we would not find Sony, famous for being the manufacturers of the sensors of the best cameras on the market, from Nikon’s large DSLRs to Motorola Moto itself. X Style. That is why in fourth place we find the Sony Xperia Z3 +, the last high-end smartphone that Sony presented a few months ago, and which is still an improvement over the Sony Xperia Z3 and its 20.7 megapixel camera.
5.- Samsung Galaxy S5 (79 points)
Of the oldest on this list is the Samsung Galaxy S5, the smartphone arrived more than a year ago, but despite this, its camera allows it to be the fifth best smartphone in terms of camera quality. Today, it is the cheapest on this list. Even so, there is a relevant difference in score between this one, the following on the list, and the previous ones.
6.- Sony Xperia Z3 (79 points)
We said that the differences between the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z3 + were few, but it seems that the camera is one of them. In turn, this shows that camera optimization is key to camera quality. And, despite finding almost the same cameras in the two smartphones, the difference in points is very large.
7.- Sony Xperia Z2 (79 points)
In fact, there seem to be fewer differences between the cameras on the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z2. It actually makes sense, as the two were released last year, and they weren’t too different smartphones either. Many claimed that it was unreasonable for Sony to launch two similar phones in the same year. But in any case, this is a good thing for the Sony Xperia Z2, cheaper for having been released earlier, despite having a nearly the same camera.
8.- Google Nexus 6 (78 points)
I have said many times that the Nexus 6 has not been a real success, due to its high price. However, the truth is that this high price has made the mobile phone have a feature that was normally always lacking in the Nexus of previous years, and that is the camera. . It’s eighth on this list based on DxOMark scores, a benchmark in DSLR camera review, and now mobile cameras too.
