Almost all premium mobile phones and flagships boast of good cameras. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL may have DxOMark's camera rating of 98 points, the highest so far for an Android device, followed by Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but there is still room for improvement. Now DxO One camera add-on is available for Android smartphones, which will make them awesome for photography.

DxO had released its One to iPhones way back in 2016 but wasn't made available for Android phones. However, it announced in October this year that it would release the camera add-on to Android devices soon. Living up to its words, the DxO One is now up for grabs for $499 (around Rs 32,200).
