The use of cell phones during a trip to take pictures is very popular among modern travelers. Nowadays, you no longer need to carry a map, compass, watch, travel guide, and camera. Everything you need can be found on any cell phone with technology and the internet.

However, not all phones have the best cameras for taking pictures. Of  course, travelers today want to take photos of their trips, upload them to social networks and show other people their experiences.

Another factor why travelers use a cell phone for travel is convenience. Smaller electronic devices allow you to carry them wherever you want without having a large suitcase.

That is why we have created a guide on choosing the top smartphones for traveling.

##What to consider when looking for a smartphone with the best camera?

Cameras and cell phones will depend directly on travelers’ needs. The needs of an ordinary photographer are not the same as those of a photography enthusiast who wants to take pictures of his travels.

Some details that you can consider when buying a smartphone are:

* **Number of Cameras** – Many cameras offer more versatility, although it comes at a higher price. The photos your camera will take are perfect for group shots on your travels or landscapes where you want a broader view of the place.

* **Type of lenses** – Some smartphones have wider-angle cameras, others have telephoto lenses, and some have various combinations. Consider the pictures you want to take before purchasing the camera.

* **Dual Camera** – With two cameras, you can take better photos since you can play with the focus and blur, take better photos at low light levels, make optical zooms, and achieve better picture angles.

* **Number of Megapixels** – The number of megapixels is essential for photo detail. That is, the more megapixels, the larger the photo enlargement. However, more pixels do not mean better photos, just bigger photos.

* **Aperture** – This is represented by f-numbers like f/1.4, f/2, and f/2.8. When the aperture is very large, portrait backgrounds can be significantly out of focus and have a greater impact. The larger the aperture, the more light comes in.

* **Manual Mode** – This allows specific settings to be made manually. Those who want to make the most of their smartphone camera and are interested in photography should remember this aspect.

Being able to capture motion with long exposures, adjust the white balance or decide the aperture are aspects that make a difference.

* **Optical Image Stabilization** – Helps stabilize the image so it won’t shake, especially in low light or motion.

* **Video** – When you want to shoot a video, it is necessary to look at performance, stabilization, and video quality. If this aspect is significant, and you will record many videos, you should look for a model with the highest resolution and good storage.

* **Sensor size** – The sensor is the weak point of the phones; being smaller, its performance is lower than in other types of cameras. This is a factor to consider if you are looking for a mobile to take pictures.
