Smartphone Camera vs Point-And-Shoot – The Best Electronic Device to Use

Let’s try and evaluate whether the smartphone has replaced the point-and-shoot camera, or whether a few of you are still trying to keep the tradition alive.

Don’t get me wrong, just because you leave the house every day with your iPhone, Samsung, or Android and not a camera doesn’t mean point-and-shoots are dead. Smartphones are everywhere nowadays as 1.5 billion smartphones are sold each year so it is no wonder people think they have taken over every aspect of the camera game.

There are obviously better qualities of a point-and-shoot camera such as; better lens and controls, and lesser-known stuff like slow-motion video capture, high-speed burst shooting, or multi-shot image processing…But that doesn’t mean to say that there’s any real need to carry both with us at all times!

However, as phones continue to upgrade their cameras, it is almost as if we are carrying everything all at once, but just on one device. Phones seem to be getting better and better as time goes on, so it’s not surprising that the camera on them is advancing every time. However, as the camera gets better on mobile phones, people start discarding their older phones for newer ones. This means that some homeowners have old phones sitting in their homes. This is believed to be bad for the environment, so people should really consider visiting to see if they could recycle them instead. Then, people could purchase new mobile phones.

For example, the Samsung S9 that is soon to be released has majorly upgraded their camera with the following features:

  • Plus model will have a dual rear camera
  • Standard model can shoot 480fps 1080p slow-mo videos

Comparing smartphone cameras

For argument sake I’m going to be using my iPhone 8 as a generalised example of a smartphone.

While we haven’t seen a widespread drastic increase in megapixel count, manufacturers have continued to work on phone cameras by adding new imaging chips, new software features, and overall just trying to improve the quality of existing camera sensors.

But with all of the camera power built right in your phone, do you really use a secondary camera like a point and shoot?

Manufacturers have proven that creating a half-decent image sensor for a smartphone isn’t rocket science.

Apple, for instance, has created three smartphones that have touted spectacular mobile cameras: iPhone 8, iPhone X and iPhone 7.

The former two were rated the most popular cameras on Flickr in their time. The iPhone 8 is only an improvement – or a refinement – on that and will likely follow in its predecessors’ paths. Similarly, Samsung has done a decent job of making phones with great image sensors, too, as represented by the Galaxy models.

And when you can shoot with a smartphone and get great pictures why do you need anything else?
