Best Smartphone Camera 2014

Best Smartphone Camera 2014
By , Michael Prospero

As smartphones become ubiquitous, they're quickly replacing traditional point-and-shoot cameras as the go-to devices for taking quick photos. The quality of smartphone cameras is quite good, and smartphones make it easy to share those images with others, wherever you are.

But not all smartphone cameras are created equal. The iPhone 6 Plus, for example, has extremely fast autofocus and a dual-LED flash, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active can survive dunks underwater and drops to the ground. Here are the best smartphone cameras for 2014. (All prices are with a two-year carrier contract.)

    Seems odd to call a camera with severe white balance issues the best (unless they fixed it with an update and I didn't read about it yet). I agree that the autofocus is exceptionally good though.

    This article is just fapping to Apple, it's lies, crap and garbage, this website will forever be blocked on my end now.

    The "Best" Camera phone is still the Lumia 1020 (42 Megapixel, large sensor surface area and a tiny 1.12? sensor size) or Sony Xerpia X1, heck even the Lumia 1520 all poop on the iPhone.

    No Lumias?? Haha! Especially... no Lumia 1020? So, we should have absolute pristine quality in those phones showed here once lumia 1020 is really very, very, very good at taking pictures.
