"But we are including an “advanced sensor” option. There’s clearly room for still progress there, even after all these year. Just look at what Huawei and Google are doing."
It is mean if camera setup supported by dedicated Hardware+Software camera like Google HDR+ and Quad Bayer. Of course I think I pick this.
I think having separate cameras are way better than having gimmicky dual or triple cameras.

It is also pathetic to type anything on a small virtual keyboard on a smartphone so you also need a solid, quality mechanical keyboard on the go, and the same goes for the display! Who actually enjoys videos on such a minuscule smartphone display anyway? We don't need a useless smartphone, just carry around a laptop, DSLR, Walkman and a feature phone for the best experience in all categories.
The best setup would be simply buying a real camera. Wide angle? Buy a 360 camera. Zoom? Buy a Nikon Coolpix P900 with 83x optical zoom. The rest of the comments here just acting like they are camera expert and not really solving anything.

Nokia 808 is 13mm thick and that doesn't include the camera hump, RX100 is literally over 4cm thick and you cannot carry it around in your pocket. Larger sensor will thicken the phone and that's why manufactures are experimenting with image fusion between mono & color sensors. Optical zoom module is too large to fit into a phone form factor and that's why they are putting telephoto/super wide angle lenses.
None of the above.
A single great sensor camera combined with great data gathering and processing (like what the Google Pixel 2 does) is all that is necessary for a great camera setup.
Triple camera systems are just stupid gimmicks for the sake of spec inflation on their Information sheets, like the Zoom feature for the sake of getting higher scores from DxOMark. Dual Cameras are good, but that just kind of shows that companies would rather take two mediocre to average setups than one great single camera sensor.
wide angle...capture great scenes and monuments, also fit friends in.
I have a dual camera system with a monochrome sensor and I think it's not that much useful. Sure, it adds some detail to the photo and reduces noise in low light, but single sensors can do the same thing, if they're bigger and with brighter lens.
The best second sensor I think would be zoom lens, but with at least 3x zoom. Less than that is still not much useful.
I honestly don't care how many cameras my phone has, as long as it has a good quality image at the end. iphones (excluding the X) has a single camera, with heavy post processing, and it looks good with minimal effort. my old note 5 that I'm still rocking (because notch-fest of androids -_-) has a single camera, and it looks good if you work on the focus points. google pixel 2(XL) has a single camera and its arguably the best on the android market.
yet my Huawei mate 10 witch is now dead from and android update, had 2 cameras and it looked absolutely crap.
multi back cameras on devices is just another pointless trend, just like the notch and removal of the headphone jack.
How about the old fashioned way.... a decent size sensor and good oversampling aka Nokia 808 method on a modern large sensor with faster lens and better hardware
My rx100 only has one lens... The pixel phone only one lens... The Nokia 808 and 1020 only one lens....Guess what... They are great camera's
We don't need multiple lenses... We need large sensors and fast lenses
Shanti Dope, 08 Jul 2018Something like the OnePlus 5T and 6's setup maybe??You mean where the other lens is useless? No one interested in clicking photos with their phone would buy a OnePlus phone.
The Thing is, if I really cared about different zoom or wide angle, I'd get a lens kit, which are awesome. Just give me the best sensor, we'll add the lenses in no time.
Shanti Dope, 08 Jul 2018Something like the OnePlus 5T and 6's setup maybe??Yeah, or maybe "advanced sensor" means something like the 40MP sensor on the P20 Pro??
Of course the option for "an advanced sensor" wins because nobody actually knows what it means and everybody assumes it means what they want it to mean.
These polls are getting worse and worse...
I think by advance sensor Gsmarena means sensor like quad bayer. IMO perfect combo is normal+wide+telephoto you are prepared for every scenario and advance sensor option should be replaced by advance software as google showed a great software can overcome a sensor limitations
