Camera with more megapixels can create a photos with greater details. In general, more megapixels mean larger image dimensions and bigger file size.

One megapixel is 1 million pixels. To get the number of megapixels, you have to multiply image width and height. For example image resolution 8000 pixels x 6000 pixels = 48 megapixels.

But the number of camera's megapixels is not the only factor, that affects the quality of taken photos.

The good camera also have:
  • Quality sensor and lens
  • Good image stabilization
  • Effective image compression




If the image compression level is set too high, the photo quality is decreasing.

  • Resolution - good resolution can be considered to be 12 megapixels or more.
  • Focus - can be automatic or manual.
  • Aperture - some phone cameras are able to adjust aperture to the ambient light automatically or manually.
  • Zoom - can be digital or optical. Optical is considered to be better.
  • Software - can help to apply the right settings or filters, to make the photo better.
