Results: the Note 8's secondary camera is a controversial topic

Dual cameras on smartphones are still a fairly new trend, but one that's picking up fast. And there are four different ways in which manufacturers implement the technology, but they can pretty much be summed up in two categories — "Does it bokeh or not?".

"Bokeh" refers to the portrait modes with artificial, DSLR-emulating background blur, which are all the craze this year. If the answer is "not", then the secondary camera is probably a wide-angle one, a-la LG.

When Samsung's Note 8 was rumored to come with a dual camera, we went wild with speculating which implementation Sammy would choose — a wide-angle lens or a telephoto lens? Now, we know it's the latter one. Some fans are happy, some say they would've preferred the wide-angle solution. We thought we'd poll you and see if the audience is truly split down the middle.

Would you look at that? It sort of is!

Should Samsung have put a wide-angle secondary camera on the Note 8?

Yes, wide angle would've been much more useful!
Nonsense, telephoto camera and portrait mode are awesome!
