  • I've been making a severe research on all the specialists websites about rear wide angle camera. It seems that most of "experts" don't know what to say about it. Even on factory chats they never know about length. Today my phone is a lg g5 with a cool rear wide angle. I'm looking for a new cellphone, can be Chinese, even Martian but have to have wide angle. My sugestion for you guys (the best website that mentioned the angle) is to make a big difference and talk about wide angle on diferent phones. You will be the first to talk about it (including Chinese phones).

      • Most of these phones have bezels, at least to the top and bottom.

        • I am sure this list is just a random one. Or if not, I'd have rated the LG V10 at the top of the list. The f/1.8 aperture is the best of them all.

          • "Camera phone" is how Oppo had advertised their phones a few months back along with "Selfie Expert". So, I was hoping the Oppo phone would make it to the list.

              • It is a true fact that people are clicking more and more of images these days. So, the phone makers are pouring into the market what the users need.
