If you were to ask me what the hot smartphone trend of the moment is, I’d probably go with dual cameras. The OnePlus 5 just dropped and it has dual cameras, a setup that OnePlus has spent a heck of a lot of time talking about. We know the iPhone 7 Plus has dual cameras. Huawei phones have them now. So do LG’s. Future Motorola phones appear to be leaning that way. And of course, the Galaxy Note 8 should have 2 cameras on its backside.
I’m just wondering if any of you really care? We see this so often, where manufacturers try to latch onto what they believe to be the next big thing in order to be able to push new phones (3D, no headphone jack, ultra-thin bodies, etc.). Are dual cameras that next thing? Honestly, I don’t know. I’m still not drawn to the idea that my next phone has to have a dual camera setup. I have yet to see proof that this is something I need in my life. Smartphone cameras are already incredibly good as they are with just a single shooter. And don’t bring that weak ass portrait mode garbage.
What about you? Are dual cameras an important feature that could make or break a purchase decision?
