    I'm debating XR vs XS, and looking for sample shots with the iPhone's built-in 2x telephoto lens. Doesn't matter if its from an older iPhone 7 plus - I'm just curious of photo samples of how much zoom 2x provides.

    I've done a lot of searching online and haven't found anything. Thanks!

    It’s not a ton closer, but you get the idea. Pardon nature taking its course lol

    taken from the same location, Carnegie Hall. compressed them for upload. your main telephoto benefit will be in good to excellent light, which is a boon for sightseeing and outdoor shots. When light is poor, it’s equal because telephoto capable phones prioritize gathering more light with digital zoom on the wide angle. still, very useful and makes a huge difference in outdoor light.

    I would be all about the XR, but my 9 y/o is very active in sports and I wouldn't be happy not having the added zoom. The XR takes great pictures no doubt, I just really like the zoom of the telephoto lens. FWIW

    Here’s some samples I had to get from my twitter feed I posted a few weeks back...

    Normal lense

    The telephoto lense

    I was stood in the same spot for both images, as you can see it’s very usable and excellent quality, it’s awesome in good light, though the normal lense is better in poor light.

    Adam.

    Thanks! I'm sold that the built in 2x lens is useful.
