Microscopic Look: 5 Phones That Take Good Macro Photos

iPhone 13: the first macro of the apple

The first one we want to talk to you about will surely ring a bell, since it was launched very recently. It’s about the new iPhone 13 family that Apple launched in 2021. Specifically, speaking of the photographic section of these phones, the differences of the 4 models that exist are in the telephoto lens. Therefore, from the Pro Max model to the mini they have:

  • Main sensor 12 MP, with aperture f / 1.6 and focal length of 26 mm.
  • Ultra wide angle sensor 12 MP, with aperture f / 2.4, angle of view of 120º and focal length of 12 mm.

And then the Pro and Pro Max models also include:

  • Telephoto sensor 12 MP, with f / 2.8 aperture, 3x optical zoom and 77 mm focal length.

Given the configuration of all family members, you may be wondering, and where is the macro sensor so? Well, in the case of these iPhone, we can take such photos thanks to the construction of the ultra-wide-angle sensor. Therefore, we can use this mode with any of the 4 available iPhone 13 models.

As soon as we have the camera app open and we get very close to any object (up to 2 cm) the phone will automatically switch to macro mode. This mode, if we have the right light conditions and we have a little patience to “get the hang of it” will allow us to capture good quality images like those that Apple itself showed us in its presentation.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra

On the other hand, we have the king of mobile photography so far within the Chinese manufacturer’s catalog. The name of this smartphone is My 11 Ultra and, in this section, we find the following configuration:

  • Angle sensor 50 MP, with focal length f / 1.95, focal length 24 mm, with optical stabilization and dual pixel.
  • Wide angle sensor 48 MP, with f / 2.2 focal length, 12 mm focal length, 128º field of view and phase detection autofocus.
  • 48 MP telephoto sensor, focal length of 120 mm, with optical zoom x5, hybrid x10 and digital up to x120 increases. This sensor also features optical image stabilization and phase detection focusing.

In the case of this Mi 11 Ultra, opt for the best option that we have found in Android phones for macro photography: a hybrid sensor telemacro. This, thanks to its construction and possibilities, will allow us to get close enough to any object to make good captures if the light conditions are good.

Oppo Find X3 Pro: microscopic details

The manufacturer OPPO always bet on innovation and, in the case of the Oppo Find X3 Pro, they proved it again. The photographic section was left with the following lens system:

  • Main sensor 50 MP, 26mm focal length, f / 1.8 focal length with OIS
  • Ultra wide angle sensor 50 MP, focal length 16mm, change of vision of 110º and focal length f / 2.2
  • Telephoto sensor 13 MP, focal length 52 mm, focal length f2.4 with option of 5X hybrid zoom and digital up to 20X
  • 3 MP sensor with microscopic lens with f3.0 aperture

On this occasion, OPPO surprised us with a dedicated sensor that not only allows us to take macro but also microscopic photography. Something super surprising talking about a mobile phone and what we talk about in its video analysis.

POCO F2 Pro: the most economical macro

A fairly inexpensive option within the options that makes good macro photographs is the POCO F2 Pro. A phone whose photographic section incorporated:

  • Main sensor 64 MP, with focal length f / 1.9 and focal length of 26 mm.
  • Ultra wide angle sensor 13 MP, with focal length f / 2.4 and field of view of 123º.
  • Telemacro sensor of 5 MP, with focal length f / 2.2 and focal length of 50 mm.
  • Depth sensor 2 MP, with focal length f / 2.4.

Once again, this POCO F2 Pro opted for that configuration of combine telephoto with a macro mode that allowed us to take very good catches. If you want to see some of its results, you can take a look at the video we made on our YouTube channel in which, in addition, we show you some interesting tips to improve this type of photograph.

Realme GT Explorer Edition

Last but not least, another more current phone option with good macro photography is the Realme GT Explorer Edition. Speaking of the set of cameras on the back, we find:

  • Main sensor 50 MP, with focal length f / 1.9 and focal length of 24 mm.
  • Ultra wide angle sensor 16 MP, with focal length f / 2.2, focal length of 14 mm and field of view of 123º.
  • Macro sensor 2 MP, with focal length f / 2.4.

On this occasion, the manufacturer actually opted for a dedicated sensor for this type of photography. With this, if the light conditions are good, we can take captures of all kinds of objects with more than correct results.

These are 5 of the best smartphones on the current market that could be interesting if you are looking for good results in macro mode. Do you miss any other phones in this compilation?
