Best Camera Phones for Video Recording (2020) | Vlogger's Delight

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.

What are your own favourite camera phones as we hit 2020 for shooting video? Hit me up below!

    S10 and s10+ same quality for video??



  3. Elizabeth Valdez on December 19, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Excellent reviews but could be better if you speak slower. Too fast and confusing. You don’t make a pause to talk about the next phone. By the way, what kind of phone or camera did you use to record your video?



  4. aishi 001 on December 19, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    I recomend all the sony phones are best for camera



  5. Dev Photography on December 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Check realme 4k video quality 👇🏻

    But yes. My fav 4k recording will be only Xperia phones. 😁Because Chinese can’t compete.



  6. Girl shush your mouth entertainment! on December 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    So which one for filming this went so fast?😊



  7. lif3adv3ntur3foodnthought5 on December 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    All I kept hearing was bumbhole😳



  8. Amir Fariqi on December 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Can we remove video shaking on any of the smartphone without the use of gimbal?



  9. Paintology on December 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I just uploaded a video that I shot with the LG G8S ThinQ, you can view it here… https://youtu.be/0R68jh-p4DM
    I initially thought the smartphones could outperform my Canon DSLR SL1, unfortunately not, I retested and the video quality is way superior to the smartphone even though it was shot at 1080p. Let me know what you think.

    We filmed an entire 24 episode Christmas Saga on an iPhone 7+, using Filmic Pro in 4K. Equipment budget was approx. 200 USD. It turned out amazing! English subtitles. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv3YWj97kpw

  14. Dee Dee on December 19, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Ok this was one of the best review !!



  15. Toju Aboderin on December 19, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    I have a Samsung note 10 , but for some reasons my finished videos looks like it has a weird white covering on the surface(not clear)



  16. John Nick on December 19, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Instead of Sony you should have included LG V60. Lg’s Manual mode is unmatched.



  17. Amir Hamza on December 19, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    you are too fast man slow down ………..bye



  18. Dihelson Mendonca on December 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    *Why ALL smartphones footage you presented here looks like they were filmed at 14 FPS, like loosing frames, bumpy ? The bus is at one place, then jumps to a near place, there´s no a continuous movement. Why :*



  19. Cece Gomez on December 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Update this



  20. Христо Спасов on December 19, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Thanks! Love your accent and way of expressing yourself!
    A great way to create income with so many viewers would be having affiliate links to the products you mentioned. 🙂

    wait a min! is that Aya Wolf in blue dress?



  26. sharon nora on December 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    If I have to do that, I’ll do it again, although it was heartbreaking. It is better now than later. I accept that it is the beginning of the healing. I had an abusive relationship that I hired cryptedhacked@gmail.com to hack into my spouse account and phone I found that he is married and we have been together for 1 year. I’m glad I did that



  27. Aruel Diano on December 19, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    to lucky for the people who have given you cellphone idol, I hope I’m the one of them. because i don’t phone to use in our online class. 🙂 even if its not an iPHONE. my god bless you bro. i’m just your simple Pinoy Follower 🙂

    I know it’s embarrassing, but I’m fighting just in case you notice me bro ..



  28. Vincent Law on December 19, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Poopshoot? Great comedy 🙂



  29. Kaming Mag-Ina Vlogs on December 19, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    THanks for the information



  30. Cristiaana Marie Saint on December 19, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Wonderful video thankyou! I really like the feature of the Sony 1 and Sony 5 of the filters for your videos. question…since I am teaching online through Zoom, would it be possible to add filters in that mode? Silly question? or?? Thank you in advance!



  31. Real Treky on December 19, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    If I wasn’t already subscribed – I’d do it again just for first 15 seconds about TikTokers.



  32. I have been there! on December 19, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Change the title dude… "Random reviews of few phones that I think they are good on video" … vey far from best 2020.



  33. iPhone on December 19, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    OR you can buy any mobile that records in 4K and use a gimbal… Problem solved (for poors) 🙂



  34. Edge Dev Studio on December 19, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    iPhone camera is the best in the list



  35. king of queens venky on December 19, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    oneplus 7t vs oneplus 8 which is the best video recording mobile phone?



  36. Mardana Nanak on December 19, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Not a serious review. No side by side comparisons. No mentions of which phones have any manual control. Waste of time.



  37. A Better Pace on December 19, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Thanks for the video Chris very useful! Did I see Crescent way in Green Street Green in your footage? Are you a local or was it stock footage?



  38. Andy MJ on December 19, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Great review. Wish you all the best. The Gospel is 1Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesian 1:13, 2:8-9, Roman 3:23-26. Without blood there is no life and without Jesus BLOOD no eternal life. Faith in Jesus BLOOD and his finished work at cross.🕊️



  39. Dario Rota Foto on December 19, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Hi. I think it can be useful if you pop out the name of every phone at least once.



  40. Christa Healey on December 19, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    In need of a reliable and genuine hacker, kindly contact cryptedhacked@gmail.com he’s indeed a genuine hacker named Hill Hendrix and highly recommended online.. I was skeptical at first when I read reviews but when I contacted him , he finally got me access to a phone and social media account, which was of good intentions… he’s indeed a professional hacker and one of the best Hackers.



  41. Aly Stosz on December 19, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Awesomeness great stuff thank you



  42. Trip Two on December 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

  43. Zena Matthews on December 19, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    S10 is better than S20 Ultra?



  44. yehiel dahan on December 19, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Hi, can I ask what was your sound pickup hardware for this clip pleas?



  45. New words! on December 19, 2020 at 10:28 pm

  46. VTancaz Galpo on December 19, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Like it thanks for advice God bless yuhhhh



  47. rollerblading geek on December 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    thanks for a video of your bald head and face but one was looking for in-camera video footage comparisons. Perhaps I was a little too expectant of a video titled "best camera phones"



  48. R.K MISHRA on December 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Nice informative video bro..👍👍



  49. nefe on December 19, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    That was not the introduction we were expecting but it was the introduction we needed.
