Less than two decades ago, back when there wasn’t an ultimate top lifestyle blogger and blogging was a personal concept – internet users would sign up for accounts to find their own space to record their daily musings. It was something like a diary, only out in the open, with interchangeable fonts instead of handwritten notes, and passwords instead of padlocks. While it’s certainly still popular to use blogs like personal journals, some have found a way to recreate this platform and wield it for influence. Many of these blogs thrive on various social media platforms; Instagram, for one, thanks to its curated gallery, has become a favorite hangout for bloggers.

Whether you’re an amateur blogger looking for celebs to keep up with, or a regular Joe looking to find inspiration in the mundane, these bloggers can help you rediscover life – and help you live the fullest. We have listed down ten of the top lifestyle bloggers on Instagram, and they have got you covered, from fashion and lifestyle to home and business. Cop off their looks and adventures, or dive into their treasure trove of life hacks by following them!

Theresa from MyPostcard

Back in the day, when you wanted to take a photo, you had two options. Either you were lucky enough to own a camera or you could hire a photographer who owned one. These days, taking great photos is as easy as owning a camera phone. Unfortunately, not every camera phone has the capability of capturing stunning photos. You simply have to be a bit selective when choosing one. To cut to the chase, we will be giving you a thorough run down of the best smartphone cameras this year. They may not be as good as good as the best DSLR  camera, but they sure come close. Find out more!


Best Smartphone Cameras
Samsung Galaxy S8

It’s no surprise that the Samsung S8 made this list as it features an impressive 12 megapixel back camera which is equipped with Dual Pixel technology. This paired with a f/1.7 aperture will enable you to take clear photos even in challenging lighting conditions. The selfie camera also does not disappoint as it comes with 8 megapixel which goes well with the 5.8 Inch HD+ screen. When it comes to its videos, expect nothing short of excellence as it can capture clear, high-quality 4K videos.

Samsung sweetens the deal some more by enabling this phone to be dust proof and waterproof for a depth of 1.5 meters up to 30 minutes. This paired with an expandable memory card slot gives you the power to take photos on the go, no matter the weather.


Best Smartphone Cameras
iPhone 7 Plus

Best Smartphone Cameras
Being Apple’s latest smartphone, you would expect the iPhone 7 plus to come packed with excellent features. It does not disappoint. More so, in the camera department. It features a 12-megapixel camera with an aperture of f1/8 and optical image stabilization. This guarantees you an unforgettable time while shooting be it in light or otherwise.

This phone may not be a camera but it comes quite close thanks to the many manual controls it has. You can also shoot in raw while using third-party apps bringing it even closer to resembling an actual camera. The front camera is also quite good with 7 Mega Pixels sensors guaranteeing you some great selfies.

As much as this phone is riddled with great camera features, you may be limited on storage space as it does not come with a memory card slot. However, Apple quickly compensates for this by allowing large internal storage space starting from 32 GB all the way up to 256 GB.


Best Smartphone Cameras
The Huawei P10 Smart Phone

If you liked the Huawei P9, then you will definitely fall in love with the new Huawei p10 smartphone. More so, for its incredible camera. It comes with a dual camera just like its p9 predecessor one is black and white, the other is for color. As if the dual camera is not enough, this phone features f2.2 Leica lenses capable of giving your razor sharp clarity in your photos. The video quality quite good being able to record in Full quality. Despite the already large storage space of the phone, you can further expand it using a memory card for a non-stop photo session.


Best Smartphone Cameras
Xperia XZ Premium

There is no way this list is complete without mentioning a smartphone from the Sony Xperia family. As you would expect from the Sony flagship phone this year, it features great specs including an impressive camera.

The phone comes with a generous 19-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.0. If this does not excite you, then its video capabilities will. It comes with the unique ability to film a slow-motion video at 960 frames per second while being able to maintain high video quality.

Just like the rest of the phones in the Xperia family, this one is water resistance allowing you to take the much coveted underwater pictures. The rest of the features are also exciting such as the ability to expand its memory using a memory card, a 5.5 inch clear 4K HDR screen and of course, its dust proof capabilities.


Best Smartphone Cameras
Google Pixel

Best Smartphone Cameras
Being created by Google, you would expect this smartphone to come with some pretty kick-ass features and technology. Well, it does. The camera for starters is an impressive 12.3 Mega Pixels which has helped the phone gain a lot of credit in the market due to the clarity of its photos. Other than a great camera, this phone features Google Assistant, a feature that helps you navigate the phone much more easily. This is the first Android phone to have and the Google Assistant, making it that much unique.


Best Smartphone Cameras

Fresh from the oven, this phone has truly left its mark in terms of image quality. It is arguably the best smartphone when it comes to its camera thanks to the damn-near perfect photos it produces. The camera is 12 Mega Pixels with an aperture of f/1.7. The video quality is also quite impressive and it also comes with an expandable memory up to 256 GB. This allows you a continuous shooting session without interruption due to low memory.

Its camera is also among the few camera phones that are able to shoot in panorama mode without compromising on image quality. Most smartphone cameras usually produce underexposed photos when in panorama or worse, zoomed out images.

Other than a great camera, this phone is truly smart thanks to its ability to launch custom shortcuts by a mere squeeze.

Final Shot

I don’t think there is anything else to add. The phones pretty much speak for themselves. If you are after a phone that offers more than your ordinary smartphone camera features, the above phones are just for you. Just be sure to check out the rest of the features to make sure they suit you. Oh, before I forget, as you would expect, these phones don’t come cheap but nothing good ever did right? So, pay up. It will be totally worth it!
