These high-end Smartphones don't necessarily have to be low priced, though quite a few may can be purchased for less, depending upon the model you have selected and the store you choose.
This year was probably the best period to purchase a camera smartphone. A lot of smartphones got announced and went unnoticed due to poor camera capabilities. However, a few of them had managed to make their mark in the consumer's mind.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsung Galaxy S5's superior display is not only the highlight of this charismatic Smartphone. The Android-powered handset offers an insanely fast 16MP camera with real-time HDR mode. And that's not it, you can also record videos in 4K mode. The 5.1-inch, LTE-enabled monster smartphone is priced around Rs. 34,000.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus
In many ways the iPhone 6 Plus is a path breaking handset. Like the larger iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 6 has an 8-MP rear iSight camera. The major difference between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus camera is that the latter has optical image stabilization. This obviously results in better-than-expected photographs. It also has the ability to shoot 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second and slo-mo video at 240 frames per second. This high-end Smartphone starts upwards of Rs. 62,000.
Sony Xperia Z3
Sony has been using the same design for a couple of years - but the Xperia Z3 now packs a revolutionary rear-facing camera. Even though Sony has used the same 20.7MP camera with its own Exmor RS sensor which was also seen in its predecessor. However, the new device comes with a 25mm wide-angle lens and has an ISO of 12800. There a bundle of native apps and ability to record videos in 4K format. The astonishing Android-powered smartphone is priced around Rs. 48,000.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The Galaxy Note 4 is more than a productive tool. Unlike the Galaxy S5, which also boasts a 16MP rear-camera, the Note 4 is one notch higher, with optical image stabilization (OIS), it is a first for Samsung. The Note 4 is a crazy combination of business and multimedia features. The phone captured sharp and effortless photos during our testing. The Note 4 is now available in India for Rs. 58,000.
HTC One (M8)
Accurate, bigger, and more powerful, the HTC One (M8) is as epic as its predecessor. That doesn't mean that the One (M8) lacks in the camera department. It has the same 4-megapixel sensor that HTC featured in the original One. In addition, there's the second camera sensor above the main camera, dubbed as Duo Camera. Basically, its solely for depth-of-field information, which can be used for Lytro-like focus adjustments. The HTC One (M8) is priced around Rs. 38,000. Now there's the HTC One (M8) Eye also, which boasts a 13MP camera.
