Poll: Are you happy with your phone's camera zoom?

Software and dedicated tele cameras mean zoomed-in images should be good, right?

Smartphones have made major strides over the years when it comes to camera zoom, as many phone brands offer dedicated telephoto or periscope cameras for higher-quality zoomed-in images. We’ve also seen improved image quality on phones without dedicated zoom cameras, using software techniques to deliver better pictures.

So with all that in mind, we want to know whether you’re happy with your phone camera zoom quality. You can let us know by simply voting in the poll below and leaving a comment if you’d like to elaborate.

Are you happy with your phone's camera zoom quality?

1625 votes

Just to clarify, we’re asking you whether you’re happy with pictures taken when zoomed in. This is regardless of whether your phone has a dedicated telephoto/periscope camera. So if you have a Samsung Galaxy A53 (which lacks a telephoto camera) and think 2x or higher shots look good, go ahead and vote “yes.” If you’ve got a phone with a zoom-focused camera but still aren’t happy with zoomed-in images, then you can simply vote “no.”
