If you’re looking for a new or second-hand smartphone, then one of the main features to look out for is a great camera. So we’ve been looking for great camera phone reviews, and have made this list of essential sites you should check out.

  1. ePHOTOzine – this site has been reviewing cameras since about 2001, so their smartphone reviews mostly focus (get it?) on the camera features and performance, and as they review cameras as well, they should know what they’re talking about. They’ve also got a number of “Best” articles, so you can quickly find some of the top recommendations.
  2. GSMArena.com – dedicated to mobile phones, these guys (and gals) have in-depth smartphone reviews, plus a handy specifications feature where you can compare one camera to another. GSMArena has reviewed the S21 Ultra 5G and picked up on the images looking oversharpened.
  3. AndroidAuthority – Respect my authority! They produce detailed reviews, and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G review looks at the performance of the multiple cameras in a lot of detail, with the 100x zoom looking better than other smartphones.
  4. The Guardian – Not your typical review site (being a newspaper), but they appear to know what they’re talking about and have reviews of the most recent smartphones.
  5. Pocket-Lint – An independent review site, they offer detailed smartphone reviews, and don’t pull any punches, in their S21 Ultra review, they find that the camera interface is confusing at times, and the 100x zoom gives abstract images.

Nokia has announced the new Nokia Lumia 1020 – a 41 megapixel camera phone with optical image stabilisation, Carl Zeiss f/2.2 lens, full HD video with stereo sound, a new Nokia Pro app to add manual controls, 4.5inch screen, Xenon flash, as well as a camera grip accessory (shown above). More details at ePHOTOzine, Nokia, as well as sample photos from Nokia. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is said to be a noticeable improvement over the Nokia PureView 808, with better image processing, optical image stabilisation, as well as a much slimmer phone body, and runs Windows Phone 8 instead of Symbian.
