Smartphone zoom has made significant strides since the iPhone 7 series debuted a 2x telephoto camera back in 2016. In fact, a 2x telephoto shooter seems rather quaint by modern standards when we have 3x, 5x, and even 10x cameras in our pockets today.

However, there’s still one significant issue with smartphone zoom today, and that’s the lack of consistent quality when zooming in through intermittent levels. The answer? Dual telephoto cameras.
