Which smartphone has the highest resolution camera?

A list of smartphones with the highest resolution cameras in megapixels

Which smartphone has the highest camera resolution? Read our guide to find out which smartphones have the highest resolution cameras.

As you will see from the list Nokia and Sony dominate the high resolution camera market. With so many smartphones on the market with 8Mp cameras we've restricted our list to those with higher resolutions than this. That's not to say that phones like the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4 and more aren't any good, but they don't make this list. See also Group test: What's the best smartphone?

We've stuck to phones that are available at the time of publishing, but we are fully aware that there are plenty of handsets on their way which will make the list such as the Sony Xperia Z.
