Are triple lenses better than Dual cameras?
I know you are familiar with the sayings “the more the merrier” and you might have also heard “three is a crowd”, well in this case three isn’t a crowd.
Smartphones with two cameras are more dominant currently; this doesn’t mean that it is better than the newly incorporated triple lens.
Look at it this way, It took mobile phone manufacturers about 10 years create a two camera smartphone, meaning it was a great idea.
Now adding another camera would make the preexisting two lens camera better and reduces the stress on it. This is not to say the two lens camera is not useful, but the triple camera will perform better.
