    I'm looking for an Android Camera phone, one with 21 megapixel or higher rear camera with HDR & RAW support; I don't plan on making a purchase immediately only what is available ?

    Before I give suggestions, I have to warn you that megapixels rarely ever tell the story on the Android side. Sony likes to load their XZ Premiums and XZ phones in general with high megapixels but the actual camera output is average or not great. It's all about software processing.

    I would suggest the Google Pixel 2 series. It doesn't have RAW support but there are apps for that. I do believe that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ has it in their camera mode.

    However a phone that will more than likely meet this need for you is the Huawei P20 Pro. That has 41 megapixel shooters (multiple cameras on the back of it) that can also shoot RAW, if I'm not mistaken.

    The Hwawei P20 looks good but no Gorilla Glass. The camera on the Galaxy S9+ is weak. I wish the Hwawei had Gorilla Glass and wrap screen then it would be perfect.

    If I were to buy today, I'd probably buy the Hwawei but it lacks two things I'd like it to have.

    The best pics I see are from my friends with the Pixel 2. I bought the LG V30 for other reasons and am disappointed with the camera.

    There are three different options for you, in my opinion. The Pixel 2 easily has the best single shooter around, and does some incredible things on the software side. It doesn't have RAW support, however, but I'm sure you can remedy that. The LG V30 can't compete with the Pixel 2 in straight picture quality, but it has every camera feature imaginable, is a fantastic video performer, and the wide angle camera is a boon. Then there's the Huawei P20 Pro, which has an insane tri-camera set up that can easily produce some fantastic shots. Based on what you've told me, the P20 Pro might be the way to go. I think you can ween a better photo out of the V30 and P20 Pro using their manual controls and with RAW support, but for a casual shooter absolutely nothing beats the Pixel 2.
