Review round-up of the best smartphones for shooting video in 2020, which is especially important for any wannabe vloggers or directors who want a portable, affordable camera. While the likes of the Pixel 4 sport great optics for capturing photos, I’ve found that only a handful can film fantastic home movies – and here’s my favourite mobiles out of all I’ve reviewed.
Samsung’s flagship mobiles are a solid choice for video. These cameras capture up to 4K resolution movies at 30 or 60 frames per second. Image stabilisation is impressive, audio quality is just as great and you get the likes of live bokeh if you grab the Galaxy S10 5G or Note 10.
Apple is also one of the best out there for video, its iPhone 11 camera offering a choice of standard or wide angle views. Stabilisation is again very impressive, as is the sound pickup. And if you’re not that loaded, try the OnePlus 7T smartphone. This can again shoot 4K 60FPS footage, on a tighter budget.
I love the Cinema Pro mode on the Xperia 5 and 1 from Sony, which delivers total control for a film-like finish. And Asus’ Zenfone 6 impresses with its flippable camera, perfect for vlogging.
