    what are people's thoughts? I was just skeptical about it and it wasn't the reason I bought the phone, but I've been using it for a while now and the results are pretty impressive. For a camera in a phone ( which I've never really got on with) this one is a pretty decent upgrade in my opinion. What are your thoughts?

    It's actually 60mm equivalent though, right?

    4.15mm x 7.21 (crop factor) = 29.9mm
    And the second lens is "2x".

    Yep, just didn't do the math...It's pretty darned good for a phone camera...something I might consider using on a little trip out rather than lugging my DSLR ear around..going to get some practice in with it.

    Although maybe not related to the original topic - I have to admit, seeing a video of my wee boy playing that was taken on my Dad's iPhone 7 actually had me amazed at the clarity. Looking forward to upgrading my 5s.
