Why does a 12-megapixel iPhone get better photos than Android’s 200-megapixel camera?


Kathmandu, Of late, smartphone brands have become more focused on cameras. The main feature of the phone is how many megapixels of camera it has. Is the quality of the photo better when the megapixel of the camera is higher? What other factors play an important role in improving the quality of the photo? Today we are giving information about this.

Fans with up to 200-megapixel main camera have entered the Nepali market. It is common for Android Fans to have a 64, 108-megapixel main camera.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which were released last year, have the highest ever 48-megapixel camera. In Nepal, users of iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max are expected to be more. The model has a 12-megapixel main camera.

If you look at the quality of photos taken by android phones with megapixels and iPhone 13 Pro Max with 12 megapixel main camera mentioned above, then the photos taken from iPhone look quality. This means that megapixels are not everything to take quality photos on the phone.

Although megapixels are low, the sensor used in the iPhone’s camera is large. A larger sensor captures more light. As a result, the lens gets enough light from the object being photographed. Therefore, the quality of photos taken by the iPhone is good and the sharpness is also high.

That’s not enough to take a quality photo. The software should also be fast to process photos. Compared to Android, the iPhone uses better image processing software. This results in accurate color contrast and detail in the photo.

200 megapixels or more megapixels can take detailed photos. There are no two opinions on that. But due to the small sensor and lens in it, the photo does not come out as it should be.

The following play an important role in taking quality photos:

Sensor Size

The larger the sensor on the device, the more quality the photo can be taken. Since the large sensor captures more light, the photo taken is of quality.

Quality of pixels

The importance of each pixel for the photo is equally high. The large sensor fits every pick in the photo well. So that the photo is quality.

Image Processing

Image processing algorithms used in smartphones also play a big role in the quality of photos. The quality image processing algorithm used on the iPhone balances things like color accuracy (color as it looks real), sharpness (photo detail), noise reduction. Some smartphones do not give special priority to it, the quality of photos is deteriorating.

Lens quality

The lens used in the phone’s camera should also be quality for the photo to come good. The design of the lens, the aperture, etc. also play a special role in improving the quality of the photo.

Apart from these, there are many other elements in the phone, which determine the quality of the photo. The company does not spend on those elements on budget phones. That’s why phones with a high megapixel sensor do not have quality photos. Android’s premium phones have photo-level photos.
