Most of the smartphone cameras these days offer a digital zoom function, but do you really need this? Well, when we tried to find out, we found that when you use a smartphone camera, you should avoid using the zoom function. Why? Read below.
Your Smartphone camera might have the ability to zoom-in and zoom-out but unlike the point-and-shoot camera the lens doesn't physically move to zoom-in or zoom-out (known as optical zoom. Your phone actually crops the full resolution photo (digital zoom) which results in small and unclear photo. So it is always better to click 100% zoomed out photo and crop later as required. This way the photo quality is retained.
To click better pictures with your smartphone, just assume that the zoom function doesn't exist. If you look closely on your phone screen, you'll see a noticeable change in photo quality. It eventually starts to degrade as soon as you start to zoom. So it is advisable that you click picture in 100% full screen resolution and crop it later as required. This way you retain quality.
