A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs and often record video using one or more built-in digital cameras . The first camera phone was sold in 2000 in Japan, a Sharp J-SH04 J-Phone model, although some argue that the SCH-V200 and Kyocera VP-210 Visual Phone, both introduced months earlier in South Korea and Japan respectively, are the first camera phones. 
The best camera phone isn’t easy to pick out. It’s not just the latest iPhone or the camera with the most megapixels. A lot of it comes down to how well the smartphone has optimized its software to snap photos or record videos. Then there’s the matter of just what photos that camera needs to capture, as some smartphone cameras can handle certain scenarios better than others.
