iPhone With 2 Cameras This Is What
The package includes a smartphone, stickers, documentation, paper clip, EarPods and adapter cable. The adapter is now 18-watt, and the cable is with a USB Type-C connector. Apple fans have been waiting for a long time to replace the usual 5 V and 1 A charger, and it happened.
Design and ergonomics
The first thing that catches your eye is not even the new camera unit, but the glass on the back. It is matte. At the same time, the apple remained glossy, like on the iPhone of the early, “aluminum” era.
The surface of the new iPhones looks pretty and reminds the wearer that it is not last year’s iPhone XS, but the new flagship from Apple. The problem with greasy spots was also solved: the panel is absolutely non-marking.
The glass of the iPhone 11 Pro is not at all the gloss of the latest iPhones and not the aluminum of earlier models, but something in between.
Iphone 11 Pro is sold in four colors: space gray, silver, gold, and dark green. Older colors look slightly different due to the matte back.
But the new dark green color, despite the expected popularity, seems inconspicuous and looks a bit like “space gray”.
This is a dark green iPhone 11 Pro. The nuances of color are rendered so subtly that it is harder to capture them than to see. The smartphone looks like just black
Let’s move on to the main external innovation. Three cameras arranged in a triangle. Live it is clearly prettier than the first renders. However, when the screen is horizontally oriented, the telephoto lens, which is located in the center, constantly gets your finger, and greasy spots can affect the quality of photos. Also, dust sticks to the new camera block.
“Ten” and subsequent models staggered noticeably when pressing the corner of the smartphone when it lies on a horizontal surface. The increased area of the camera block slightly compensated for this backlash.
Also in the range of Apple there are transparent cases for new models. They’re not made of silicone, like some other brands, but hard plastic. However, with it, the smartphone still loses some of its charm. And the cover noticeably slows down the side buttons.
In terms of ergonomics, nothing has changed. This is the same iPhone XS, which is ten grams heavier. It is weighty and fits well in the hand, and also narrower than most of today’s flagships. Feels like the vibration response has slightly changed. The arrangement of the buttons remains the same: the power key is on the right, and the volume key is on the left. Above the last one is a mute switch.

Apple introduced three smartphones this year: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The company is improving the hardware on the iPhone X chassis, which was released two years ago. In 2018, Apple released the iPhone XR, a more affordable model with an IPS screen and larger bezels, as well as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which became the main flagships of the company.
The iPhone 11 is the successor to the compromise iPhone XR. This means the iPhone 11 Pro takes over the baton from the iPhone XS, becoming Apple’s leading flagship in 2019.
Review of iPhone 11 Pro. The new Apple smartphone with 3 cameras
Successor to iPhone XS with new processor and frosted glass back.
The impressions are about the same as from the displays of top-end Samsung: the iPhone 11 Pro also has some of the best screens. When comparing head-to-head with the iPhone XS, qualitative changes are visible: the 11 Pro displays colors more correctly at an angle and has a slightly larger margin of brightness.
The main change concerns brightness: Apple claims it has grown to 800 nits. Text on the iPhone 11 Pro’s screen is easy to read even in bright sunlight and can only be lost in direct light. For comparison, the iPhone XS screen, which already had no complaints about the brightness, produced 625 nits.
True Tone, which adjusts the color temperature to the environment, and Night Shift, which makes the image warmer for sleep, remain in place. Always On Display, which many have been expecting from new iPhones, has not appeared.
This year, the manufacturer decided to abandon 3D Touch. According to Apple, this is not due to savings, but to the desire to make the company’s smartphones the same (the iPhone 11 as the successor to the XR did not receive this feature). It’s hard to get out of the habit of good things, but it’s real: in many scenarios, 3D Touch has replaced a long press. Most of all, users were confused by the need to long press the icon to uninstall the application: first, the system shows a new context menu, and only then crosses light up above the program icons. It will take some getting used to: it seems that Apple “killed” 3D Touch.
The sound has become noticeably better: louder, clearer, more spacious. When listening to music, it can compare with the sound of a SIMple Bluetooth speaker, while watching a movie, it can create a believable sense of space. Well, relatively plausible: after all, we have a gadget in our hands, not an audio system.
There are three cameras on the back of the smartphone: ultra-wide-angle, wide-angle and telephoto. Apertures are f / 2.4, f / 1.8 and f / 2.0, respectively. The resolution of each lens was 12 megapixels. The last two cameras have received optical stabilization. Anything can be shot in 4K resolution at 60 FPS.
Apple isn’t the first to add a third lens. We saw a SIMilar set even in the sub-flagships of Samsung and Xiaomi. Let’s tell you again why you need three lenses.
An ultra wide-angle lens has a shorter focal length, which allows it to fit more space into the frame. The lens will help to photograph a person against the background of the Eiffel Tower, without cutting off its tops, to make a frame of the interior of the room to announce the surrender, or just a photo from an unusual angle. The ultra-wide-angle lens of the iPhone 11 Pro, although not very good in low light, still bypasses most competitors in image quality, sometimes blotting out an extra lens on the panel for show. Here are some sample photos taken with the iPhone 11 Pro.
Camera Cheat Sheet
The five best smartphones
from a photographer’s point of view
What do you know about modern flagships? Can you name the exact diagonal of the screen or say how many gigabytes of RAM the manufacturer installed in the new product? Unless you are a mobile market expert or geek, the answer is unlikely to be easy for you. However, today almost everyone knows how many cameras are in the new iPhone and what an incredible night mode they have installed in the device from Huawei.
Cameras are what every smartphone manufacturer lives on today. Companies pay attention to the photo and video characteristics of flagships: more and more lenses appear on the back of smartphones, the detail and resolution of images are growing, and the video mode is already quite capable of replacing a movie camera. In a word, manufacturers are confidently moving into the professional industry segment.
Over the past few years, smartphones have received many cool features that have made it possible to seriously talk about replacing a large and heavy camera with a compact and inconspicuous phone. The development of artificial intelligence made it possible to introduce portrait mode, which today works perfectly on all flagships and blurs the background no worse than expensive high-aperture optics. In addition, the technology for the production of “hardware” has significantly improved. The sensors have received a high resolution and a developed focusing system. The synthesis of hardware and software functions made it possible to obtain good photos in low light. The covers of popular magazines and Hollywood films are shot on phones.
A phone with a good camera can be purchased for thousands of rubles today, but the best smartphones for photographers remain in the premium segment. We look into the world of flagship camera phones and see which smartphones shoot photo and video masterpieces in 2019.
Iphone Xs and iPhone 11 Pro. What has changed over the year?
Last year’s iPhone Xs and Xs Max are still great cameras, but the iPhones introduced in September received the Pro prefix, and it belongs to the updated camera system. New iPhones received a third, wide-angle camera and an advanced night mode, as well as 4K video on the front camera with the ability to record slow-motion videos.
Many people blame Apple for introducing innovations that already exist in the market. Indeed, three cameras are no longer news. The same Samsung Galaxy A70, not the most expensive smartphone, already shone with a triple module in March. We already saw the night mode on Huawei and Google Pixel long before the iPhone, and the front camera in the new “apples” does not outperform the competitors. However, Apple’s engineers and marketers look at what other companies are doing, and refine and trend test technologies. Remember how much noise on the Internet was made by the triple camera module of the iPhone 11 Pro: a barrage of memes, analytical articles, reviews. Apple is an established trendsetter in the industry. For example, it seems that there used to be wireless headphones, but before the AirPods came to the market, they were not in great demand. Apple knows how to make the feature available and popular. By accessibility, we mean the convenience of interacting with technology and how complex aLGorithms work invisibly.
Why are the cameras in the new “proxies” so good? Apple engineers have managed to seamlessly switch between each module. The time lag is almost imperceptible, and the difference between contrast and color rendition of images from different cameras is minimized. In addition, you can record video from three cameras SIMultaneously: the Filmic Pro application displays the image from each module on the screen and allows you to switch between images. Imagine: recording an interview will soon not require a setup of three cameras at different points: large, medium and general plans are written immediately into one device. Yura Dud, we are waiting for new episodes shot on iPhone 11 Pro! Of course, professional videographers will only laugh when reading these lines, but it’s about trends! For example, no one believed that a camcorder could be replaced by a camera.
Introduced in 2016 in the iPhone 7 Plus, the Portrait Mode has been significantly improved, packed with a ton of AI aLGorithms, and is still one of the best on the market today. Night photography was first introduced to the iPhone camera system this year. One of the disadvantages of the chips was the inability to turn on and off the mode on their own. The phone itself understands what lighting conditions are shooting, and makes the choice for you whether you need to turn on the night mode. Controversial decision. However, the output images are natural and not noisy. In the future, most likely, Apple will give us the opportunity to choose ourselves. We made the same access to manual camera settings several generations of iOS back. The good news is that the phone sees the plot the way we see it. Smartphones from other manufacturers often try to make the night out of the day or SIMply raise the ISO. You can read more about Apple’s September presentation in our review.
Iphone 11 Pro Max
Wide angle camera
The same iPhone with 3 cameras: iPhone 11 Pro Max. Photo and price, comparison with Samsung A50. About the new Slowy and Deep Fusion features. Review for iPhone 11, which is ideal for those who live in the phone. Pros and cons
Hello! In general, I am quite calm about technology, but I was really looking forward to this particular iPhone 11 with 3 cameras, because they promised something incredible! New features, super shooting, portrait mode, night mode, slowfie, deep fusion.
Since I was primarily interested in photography, I will pay the most attention to this. But later.
In the meantime, let’s quickly go over the main characteristics.
This model is on the official website:
I beg of you. He talks about some kind of design when 90% of smartphones on the market look identical, I personally find it funny.
Personally, we can’t figure it out right away and we constantly grab each other’s phones.
In order to understand, you need to turn the phone over.
Now the innovations are becoming visible:
- For the first time (in my opinion) the phone on the back cover does not have an inscription. Go crazy-
- The glass back surface is not new, and this personally makes me neither hot nor cold. Without a cover, I would not dare to wear it anyway)
- And the most recognizable feature of the iPhone 11. The triple camera. The one who woke up famous with a dozen new memes surfing the net.
What it was not compared to: both with a razor and with a hob, in short, see for yourself:
Standard, from which nothing was useful. Because native headphones with the advent of AirPods have lost their relevance, and a great replacement was found for charging, notorious for its cunning design (which was torn like cheap stuff from the market in a few months). Wireless charger:
DIMENSIONS: HEIGHT AND WEIGHT
(iPhone 11 Pro Max. Right)
You know, I miss the days of phones the size of the first iPhone. How convenient it was, although even in those days they managed to call them shovels. The sixth iPhone in size, as for me, is already too much. And I have nothing to say about the size of current phones, except that they are slowly but surely approaching in these parameters to tablets.
Iphone 11 Pro Max dimensions:
In general, for this phone it is already necessary to allocate a personal in the bag.
And from my own experience: if I am going somewhere without a bag (for example, to ride a bicycle or scooter), then I do not take the phone for reasons of its own safety. Who would have thought that it would come to this))
HOW MUCH DOES THE CHARGE HOLD
There is no need to talk about any cosmic values. Yes, when you change your outdated device to a new one, you will undoubtedly be in ecstasy from the fact that just yesterday you had to recharge the phone twice, but here the battery lasts for three days! But here it should be remembered that not only the new iPhone is great. The new Samsung is also nothing like that, and after a year, both of them will equally lose ground and will no longer be as pleasing as before)
JUICY DISPLAY IPHONE 11 PRO MAX
For those who live on the phone. This is probably an important parameter. Color rendering fire. Really. I have never seen anything like this. Even the usual news programs viewed on this iPhone look like a high-budget movie))
But for me specifically, this is not the parameter to be chased after. In this regard, I am very unpretentious. And even with this iPhone, I watch all videos on a tablet and not always in good quality. The picture is visible. And okay. Not an esthete, what to do)
By the way, interesting information. On the Apple website, this is what I read:
- Arsenic-free display glass
- The display is mercury free
- Does not contain Brominated Flame Retardants
- PVC free
- Does not contain beryllium
Made me think. Are they implying that other companies are poisoning us with their phones? Mercury, arsenic, bromine, beryllium. Straight gentleman’s set of the poisoner. In general, an interesting topic to think about. I will definitely look for information about this later)
SOUND IPHONE 11 PRO MAX
A delight for the ears of music lovers. In general, in my opinion, all iPhones differ in high-quality sound, but this model has surpassed everything that came before. Very surround sound.
What a pity that I cannot appreciate its dignity, as well as the quality of the picture)
Yes, of course, I feel the difference, but this does not mean that I stopped turning on MUZ TV on the big screen in the morning and listening to what is going on there.
BUT! This is me, a non-working housewife, with all the comforts of home. In the event that I spent the day at work, and morning and evening in traffic jams, then I am sure I would evaluate these points in a more enthusiastic tone, because, damn it, there really is nothing to complain about.
If you switch from the conditional six to the 11 model, then yes, you will go crazy with new features:
Live Photo (I really like this format, a moment in life with sound and movement, but, alas, it is not supported on devices of other brands of phones. That is, you can enjoy this miracle only on Apple gadgets.)
Face ID. Cute, new. A very serious level of protection. I checked everything.
- You can unlock your smartphone only if the phone sees your face.
- A photo in front of a screen won’t work.
- On your face, but with closed eyes, does not react. That is, while you sleep, no one can find out your secrets on the phone.
- Videos with you moving and with facial expressions will also be ignored.
So, in principle, you can relax in terms of data protection at the household level.
BUT WHAT’S THE FUEL?
All these functions are available in predecessors, for much less money.
If you are switching to 11 iPhones from the tenth model, then do not even hope that something will surprise you, except for the cost)) Apple is not the same. It does not gush with innovations. Until a new Steve Jobs appears, iPhones will keep afloat only at the expense of their former glory and still successfully functioning self-sufficient ecosystem, using.
I think it’s time to move on to the most interesting, which is what this Iphone 11 is supposed to hook on. PHOTOS.
IPHONE 11 PRO MAX. PHOTOS, COMPARISON, QUALITY
Without a quote with the characteristics of the cameras of the Iphone 11 Pro Max, here is nowhere:
And as always, I cannot live without comparisons. And the comparison will be quite unusual.
I will compare photos from devices of completely different classes: photos from the iPhone Promax (from 100,000 rubles) and the budget Samsung A50 (from 20,000 rubles).
Why this choice?
- Because I was quite surprised that the iPhone’s three cameras, portrait mode with blur background and night photography were hailed by Apple as something unique and unparalleled.
- I heard these statements when I already had a Samsung with three cameras, portrait mode with background blur, night shooting and wonderful photo quality.
- And what is most interesting is that the iPhone, where, by definition, for that kind of money, there should be quality in everything, in some moments managed to yield to such an affordable smartphone as Samsung.
The mode that I use once every hundred years. But for many, this is the main shooting mode, so I show:
Words, I think, are superfluous here. Iphone’s unconditional victory.
Photo taken in passing in automatic mode. Under artificial lighting indoors. It seems to me that just such images can determine the quality of a photo. In difficult conditions.
This quality suits me more than. Perfect for a smartphone. All details are perfectly visible, no complaints.
Now let’s move on to the comparison
Iphones have always been famous for their photos in warmer colors, and Samsung. In cold.
The quality of detail in photos, of course, is better on the iPhone, you can’t argue here. But is this difference worth 80 thousand rubles, what do you think??
Now let’s move on to the interesting. PORTRAIT mode. Samsung has a SIMilar function to blur the background, and it is called “Live Focus”.
Do you see all this horror? It was very disappointing to find such a mess.
When I was looking for information on this issue, somewhere I saw an opinion that this is what the function is called “Portrait”, in order to work with people, not objects.
Well, ok, there are people in our apartment too.
Let’s start experiments. Trying some of the six options for hiding the mess in the background.
I apologize in advance for missing the face completely. The person did not give me his conscious consent to post his photo on the Internet, and it’s not specifically important in this mode))
STOP, iPhone, STOP! DON’T YOU SEE WHAT YOU DO?
I am, of course, wildly sorry, but what the hell is this? As if the person who first opened Photoshop is trying to blur the background. Hand face. Facepalm. 100 thousand for technology. I’m shocked.
Let’s go further. Moving on to the fun part. To the same feature of the iPhone 11 with three cameras.
DEEP FUSION SUPER DETAILED MODE
As I understand it, when photographing, the iPhone takes pictures from three cameras at once and combines them into one photo, super-realistic, with the effect of volume and presence.
Why am I speaking so uncertainly? And here the whole point is that the developers announced this function, but they never implemented it (a second time). They promised it in the update two days ago, but alas. So far, beta testers enjoy this feature. And everyone else is humbly in a forced standby mode.
SUPER WIDE ANGLE CAMERA for iPhone 11
And again, I learned about the super-innovation, having already experimented a lot with this mode in the three-chamber Samsung A50.
- The iPhone 11 has a 120-degree viewing angle
- Samsung A50 has a 123 degree viewing angle
We look. Let’s compare. Drawing conclusions.
Ceiling in normal mode:
I held both phones in the same position, but, as you can see, apparently the different position of the cameras on the body affected. Slightly different areas were captured. Anyway, this will not interfere with the comparison)
Now, ta-dumm, the iPhone 11’s ultra-wide camera is showing its power:
- I saw nothing to admire.
- The proportions are equally distorted (the TV became a trapezoid, but in general it was rectangular, honestly).
- Colors are equally biased (visible greenery in the upper left corner in both photos).
- In fact, Apple just finally implemented what was already in the phones of the budget segment and asked for a lot of dough for it))
Iphone 11. NIGHT MODE
I will not scold the Iphone 11 anymore. Now I will praise.
The novelty, which was not in previous versions of the iPhone, was a success.
But (you probably won’t be surprised anymore) this mode has already been in other smartphones. And Samsung A50 including.
Therefore, this time I have something to compare with. And quite by accident, I had a wonderful item to demonstrate this function. A glow-in-the-dark soap that refuses to shoot with a regular camera, but both phones with night mode do it with pleasure.
So, get to know the model. I call him Casper:
How he was photographed by both phones in complete darkness in normal mode:
How to choose a phone with a great camera
. Top 10 rating according to KP
The OnePlus 8 Pro is powered by Sony’s new 12-bit IMX689 sensor. The OnePlus 8 Pro’s large 1 / 1.4-inch main camera with 1.12-micron pixels captures stunning bokeh and captures crisp daytime shots even in medium light. With phase detection autofocus and laser autofocus, it turns on quickly and maintains image and video stability. The device’s 8MP f / 2.4 telephoto lens features 3x optical zoom and OIS, which is better than the iPhone 11 Pro’s maximum focal length. As with the OnePlus 7 Pro, videos can be shot in Super Stable up to Full HD or Standard mode up to 4K.
One of the best displays
Best camera from OnePlus
The main camera on iPhone 11 Pro has a 26mm focal length, perfect for capturing everyday shots. As for the telephoto lens, just like the iPhone XS, it gets closer to your subject with a 52mm focal length. Great for portraits. If there are disadvantages. No manual mode and 12MP resolution on paper is poorer than the competition. But there is a new night mode that can keep the shutter open when shooting incredibly bad shots.
Excellent (but not the best) night mode
Stable colors on cameras
The Leica P40 Pro camera system is led by a new 50MP sensor that uses RYYB (red, yellow, yellow, blue) sub-pixel shaping. Huawei claims this makes the cameras ideal for night shots. The main camera lens is a fairly standard f / 1.9 aperture on paper, but with a huge sensor size. This phone can see even in the dark, even in automatic mode. Something that other non-Huawei phones cannot do. Also includes a 40MP f / 1.8 ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto lens capable of 5x optical or 50x digital zoom, and a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor for bokeh effects.
In terms of magnification, while the P40 Pro may not come close to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the phone is more affordable and, more importantly, offers more consistent image quality on its cameras.
Phenomenal battery life
What other smartphones with the best camera are worth looking out for
Xiaomi has broken the mold with its Mi Note 10 pentacamera. The 108MP sensor is staggering. What to say, this device has the highest resolution camera in the world. The Mi Note 10 uses four-pixel technology or “pixel binning” to capture standard images. This method combines four pixels into one, so a 48MP sensor produces a 12MP image and a 108MP sensor. Image with a resolution of 27 megapixels. The reason for this combination is to get better low light performance. However, with the right lighting, you can increase the resolution and get full 108MP shots for crisp, detailed shots. In addition, the device is equipped with optical 2x zoom, 5x zoom and ultra-wide angle, as well as a dedicated macro camera.
Fantastic levels of detail on the main camera
Many focal lengths to choose from
Unlike the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 11 doesn’t have a telephoto lens, but instead has an ultra-wide dual sensor on the back. However, the phone has a new long exposure night mode when shooting in low light. Another area this iPhone is worth praising for. This is the quality of the video; the device shoots 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. With smooth transitions between lenses and iMovie on board for basic edits, you have a smartphone for easy-to-use, high-quality filmmaking.
The most affordable iPhone 11
Excellent night mode
On the one hand, it’s an expensive flagship with poor battery life and no ultra-wide camera. But on the other hand, it has an excellent dual camera. Despite the fact that its main sensor is only 12.2 megapixels, it is SIMilar to the iPhone 11 Pro and almost always produces perfectly balanced shots. The Pixel 4 also provides convenient exposure control when shooting, so you can boost shadows separately for overall brightness, delivering detail even in dark places and maintaining outlines in lighting.
Cool night photography
Smart exposure control
Despite the sagging price, the XS can already rival professional cameras. It uses a 12-megapixel sensor with wide-angle optics, an auxiliary 12-megapixel telephoto sensor, and a TrueTone flash that changes the color of artificial lighting depending on shooting conditions. The main sensor uses 1.4μm pixels, a 6-element lens, f / 1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization, while the telephoto sensor provides additional image stabilization and 2x optical zoom. Add to this the front-facing camera, which consists of three main elements: 7MP camera with f / 2.2 aperture, infrared camera and point projector.
Ideal for selfies
The resolution of each of the two main lenses of the device is 12MP, wide-angle lens aperture. Ƒ / 1.8, telephoto lens. Ƒ / 2.4. The camera on iPhone X uses Dual OIS to capture great low-light shots. The front TrueDepth camera includes a complex system consisting of an IR camera, an IR emitter, a dot projector and the 7MP camera itself. The quality of shooting video on the iPhone X is also high. The smartphone camera allows you to shoot in 4K resolutions at 60 frames per second, 1080p at 240 frames per second, as well as in time-lapse mode.
It all starts with a 108-megapixel main camera sensor. The same as, for example, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. But here it is combined with a 48 megapixel camera with optical zoom and a 12 megapixel ultra-wide camera. The Ultra Zoom is truly best-in-class when compared to other camera phones on the market. It uses approximately 5x optical zoom with a high-resolution sensor to create images at 10x magnification with virtually no loss. The smartphone is also 8K ready and captures the highest resolution footage on the market. However, there are some minor drawbacks: the night mode could be better, and Samsung’s photo processing is aggressive; therefore, pictures may appear too sharp. Still, it’s the best performing phone with great zoom.
Huge 6.9-inch display
Best features on the market
The Huawei P30 Pro has four cameras on the back: a 40MP main lens, an 8MP telephoto lens, a 20MP ultra-wide lens, and a ToF camera for determining depth in portrait photos. The Huawei P30 Pro’s camera also uses an RYYB sensor instead of the standard RGB to capture more light. You can also get close to subjects with a 50x zoom and shoot at night as if all the lights are on.
Universal four cameras
Is it better to have more megapixels?
The more megapixels, the better the photo quality? Not always. If you’re comparing an 8-megapixel phone to a device with a 12-megapixel camera, it’s possible that the shots you take with the 12-megapixel model will be better. But they can also be worse if the camera sensor is the same size. If both phones have a sensor of the same size, then the pixels on the 12MP phone should be smaller to match.
One of the signs that you don’t need to look at megapixels. This is an example from Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6 came with 16MP sensors while the S7, S8 and S9 models. With only 12. The main difference here was the pixel size. Both phones were the same size to pack all those pixels, so every pixel on a 16MP phone needs to be smaller.
Another reason you don’t need more megapixels. This is the file size. The more megapixels, the larger the file size and the more space the pictures will take on your phone. If your phone has limited storage, this can be a significant issue.
Smartphones with the best camera 2020
The manufacturers seem to be in competition. Who will integrate how many sensors into the device. There are already four or even five cameras!
How to choose the right camera phone? What to look for if you need a smartphone with the best camera 2020? We have prepared our rating of devices for shooting photos and videos.
Sensor size and pixel size
Obviously, phones are smaller than DSLRs, so they can’t have large sensors. But by gradually increasing sensor sizes and pixel sizes, manufacturers can increase light sensitivity and noise (for example, Apple’s sensor in the iPhone 5s was 15% larger than that of the iPhone 5, so the gadget made a mini revolution in the market).
If you look at the world of DSLRs, you can see sensors measured in width and height in millimeters, but in the world of smartphones, you will see sensors measured diagonally in fractions of an inch.
Not only sensor size is important, but also pixel size.
