Runner up: iPhone X

Love it or hate it, the fact is that a lot of people take pictures with their smartphones these days, and it's in modern smartphone handsets that we're seeing some of the most exciting technological developments in photography.

The iPhone X is Apple's flagship iPhone and a significant milestone for the company, marking the 10-year anniversary of the very first iPhone – arguably the product that kicked off the 'smartphone revolution' all those years ago. As well as twin stabilized wide / tele cameras, artifact-free 4K/60p HEVC video and a bunch of clever effects like Portrait Lighting mode, the iPhone X also offers one of the best, brightest and most color-accurate screens of any smartphone. The P3 images that its camera generates take advantage of the display's wide color gamut, and the iPhone X is also the world's first device to support the HDR display of HDR photos – something we've only seen in the video world (HDR10, Dolby Vision).

The iPhone X is a beautiful thing, and a worthy runner-up for best smartphone camera of 2017.
