Camera quality is one of the most important things to consider while buying a phone, but pixel size is not as important to it

When choosing a phone, the phone’s camera quality and its photographic abilities are one of the key priorities for a majority of consumers, and they are right in their thinking. The camera is the most important feature of a phone after its battery life on the consumer’s list of must-haves. In this technological era, cameras have advanced so greatly that most of the phones on the market belonging to big companies come with a variety of features that are borrowed from a professional camera such as phase-detect autofocus and optical image stabilization. With android phones, this has been made possible with the Snapdragon processors.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platform has a noteworthy amount of silicon resources that are made and put there specifically to process images and videos. Without this processor, maybe your phone’s camera quality might be very different or your videos and photos would not even be the same.

According to Qualcomm’s insights out of the total respondents that were surveyed 44% said that camera quality was the most critical for them, so it got 4th place. But, when the users with phones that cost $1000+ were surveyed they said that camera quality took 2nd place for them after Battery life.

Most consumers believe that pixel size and sensor quality are the defining qualities of the camera and its outcome. But, that isn’t exactly the case as they are more irrelevant than people believe. The thing is that most phones cannot quarter large sensors because of physical measurements and the pixel size can only get so high before the image quality degenerates.

Smaller pixels gather more light than large pixels, which can have an undesirable impact on the image quality, especially in lighting conditions that are hard to work with.
