Huawei P9 wins Camera Phone of the Year at Mobile Choice Consumer Awards

The best camera in the world is the one in your hand… Smartphone photography has very few drawbacks- it will always be with you so you never lose a instagrammable moment, ever.

Low-light photography, fuzzy images and the ability to tweak and tease every little detail on the camera weren’t present until recently. But this year, every flagship has had major camera developments, from OIS in both cameras on the HTC 10 to the hybrid autofocus on the Xperia X to the dual lens ones on the Huawei P9 and LG G5…

Winner- Huawei P9

Let there be light!

How do you guarantee more light in all your photos, with better crisp images and low stutter? Simple, if you are Huawei, you collaborate with one of the oldest and most well-known names in photography Leica and collaborate with them to guarantee a camera onboard your flagship that is guaranteed to turn heads, not just of tech critics but also amongst professional photographers, bloggers and photojournalists. You then create a marketing campaign starring Scarlett Johansson and Henry Cavill and lap up all the accolades.

The Huawei P9 doesn’t actually need an elaborate campaign because the product has enough heft to shine on its own. There are two sensors on-board, one RGB and one monochrome and when you take a photo, the software on the P9 merges the colours taken by the RGB sensor with the detail of the monochrome sensor to give you a staggering result each time, every time.

Google Nexus 6P

Also manufactured by Huawei, the camera on the 6P is the best ever on a Google branded device and a top 5 of the ones that came out in the past year.
It makes easy business of low-light conditions and produces razor sharp images in the most dimmest light conditions.
And because it is a Google product, you get unlimited access to the Google Photos app where you can store all your memories for free and access them from anywhere…

HTC 10

Optical Image Stabilisation is common on primary cameras but HTC 10 was the first smartphone to launch with OIS on both the primary and selfie cameras. Add to this an UltraPixel sensor and a bright ƒ/1.8 lens and you are guaranteed brilliant high-resolution photos even in low light.


Another dual lens (standard and wide angle) champion, the LG G5 also sports camera and video features like Ultra HD, manual mode and auto shot.
Sweeping panoramas are go with the 135 degrees ultra-wide angle lens and its 16-MP camera, picks up a lot more detail, and packs a fantastic manual mode for budding photographers.

Samsung Galaxy S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 takes amazing quality pictures even in low light, thanks to a brighter lens (F1.7) and larger pixel image sensor (1.4um). The Galaxy S7 uses dual photodiode sensor technology and instantly focuses on objects, the Dual Pixel 12MP camera is one of the fastest on the market. And because of that gorgeous display, you can view your photos in great detail, everytime!

Sony Xperia X

A 23-MP camera with hybrid autofocus. Yup! You heard it right. Sony say that the camera can go from standby to capture in less than .6 seconds. And that isn’t all. There is a 13-MP selfie camera with Sony’s fantastic low-light sensors and 4K video recording packed all in that beautiful slim phone too!
