The best camera’s the one you have on you, isn’t it? That’s why your next phone should pack enough of a punch to make you leave your camera at home. And there’s no better choice than a Huawei or Honor smartphone.
Evenings out in town with your mates, winter brunches in a cosy cafe, and sunsets on a beach. Capture ‘em in all their glory with the right smartphone – without having to lug along your heavy, inconvenient camera. That’s what makes smartphones the best, most versatile choice for a camera. As long as you have the right one, that is...
Dual-lens camera magic
Something like the Huawei P9, Honor 8, or the new Honor 6X. Three of the most revolutionary phones in recent times, these dual-lens devices gave users the best mobile camera experience possible. The Huawei P9 wasn’t just a speedy, sexy flagship – it was also the first smartphone developed along with legendary camera maker Leica.
Not only did you get a camera UI inspired by the controls of Leica’s cameras, but you also got a dual-lens camera system. With one sensor working in monochrome, it was possible to get ‘real’ black & white photos, with the kind of contrast and subtle detailing you’d never get from other phones that lack this capability.
A second sense
And then, with two sensors gathering in light at the same time, low-light and night-time photography became a lot more fun. But the P9’s magic didn’t stop here – it also gave you tonnes of special modes: food, light painting… and a full manual mode that gave you complete control. But we also must put in a special word for how the dual-lens cameras improved portraits - letting you tune the depth-of-field just like in an advance pro camera. Artsy, dreamy bokeh in a smartphone? Yeah, it’s possible!
The Honor 6X arrives
The latest Honor device on the block, the Honor 6X, now brings us the same dual-lens magic in a more affordable package. Showcased at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and launched in India just this week, the 6X should be on top of your list if you’re looking for a mid-range device with an excellent camera. With twin 12MP+2MP cameras at the rear, meaty specs, and an extremely pocket-friendly price, the 6X is definitely the best mid-range camera phone there is.
Enough juice for loads of snaps
Proud of the snaps your old phone takes? Good for you. But do you always have enough battery life left at the end of the day to make the most of your evening out? We doubt it. But Honor (and Huawei) have always kept this in mind. Which is why you get a three-pronged approach to making sure your Honor device always has enough juice to make it through a long day of sightseeing or the wildest party you’ve been too – first, there’s a big battery.
Next, you get a cool-running, super-efficient Kirin processor. And finally, there’s EMUI, which is perfectly optimised and features loads of power-saving tech. In all, everything you need for vacation photos that tell the whole story!
