This week in Android: Let’s talk cameras, OnePlus 8 Pro giveaway

How many photos do you take in a day? If your answer is “I’d take more if I had a better camera in my phone,” then we’ve got something you should see. Hadlee took the time to lay out all the details of what to look for in a phone if you want a great camera. There are a few things that really matter for a great camera experience, including the camera sensor, the lens, and the software.

Some phones have five cameras, each for a different purpose, some have just one camera and a bunch of software smarts to do different things.

In terms of the glass, you might have to choose between macro, telephoto, wide-angle, or something in the more typical focal length range of 25-50mm. Luckily, there is plenty to choose from, lots of phones with lots of great cameras to capture your world just how you like.
