Best camera phone: which should you buy?

What's the top camera phone on the market?

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL

The Lumia and PureView brands, originally of Nokia and now of Microsoft, have a strong reputation in the camera phone field. First we got the 808 PureView, and then that insane 41MP camera was stuck in the Lumia 1020.

Both brands return in the Lumia 950 XL (and 950), although the megapixels have been dialled down to a 20MP Carl Zeiss offering.

OIS and a triple LED flash complement the snapper, while the PureView technology under the hood automatically enhances your pictures.

We're putting the Lumia 950 XL through our in-depth review process, and once completed we'll add sample images form the phone here.

John (Twitter, Google+) got his first phone aged 12 and since then he's been fixated on all things mobile, churning his way through a multitude of handsets, tablets and operating systems. Signalling his arrival at TechRadar by becoming a Guinness World Record holder in his first week (for the highest score on Super Mario Bros using a giant controller), John hasn't looked back since.
