Zooming? The iPhone X needs just a quarter of the 7 Plus light to do it

Ever since Apple introduced its first dual-camera phone, the 7 Plus, it has been giving us a cropped version of the wide-angle camera at the touted 2x magnification when the light is dim, as the telephoto lens has narrower aperture, and a zoomed-in picture with it just wouldn't come out as good.
iPhone X. That one has a more capable sensor/lens combo, and more image processing power to get advantage of it, so the "cropped" zoom shouldn't appear as often as it does with a 7 Plus, right?The amount of light needed for the telephoto to get engaged in an "optically" zoomed photos is decided by the camera algorithms, and varies with each situation, so a photog decided to measure if there is any difference between the 7 Plus, and Apple's latest and greatest
Well, correct, the setup of studio lighting that was used revealed that the camera of the iPhone X needs roughly a quarter of the light that the iPhone 7 Plus required for the telephoto zoom to kick in - 16 lux vs 88 lux - or about two light stops less, as photographers would say. This means that you will rarely see a cropped image of the wide-angle cam, instead of a true telephoto zoom in low light with the iPhone X, proving its camera more useful when you are out at night, and when you want to get closer to a subject without stepping forward.

Straight up lie....go watch the review of iPhone x by Zpromedia.....it still doesn't work in low light.

Apple don’t really invent any thing. They just tweak it to make it better and put parts together. Like there a11 chip. They make a great product. I can tell because there is still people like you saying the stuff you say. It all started in 2007 with the start of “this is the next iPhone killer”. Open your mind. They all make great products.

Apple can't keep up with the wireless charging technology, midrange IP67 rating and only have bezel-less screen now. The only feature they can claim as innovation is their Animoji. lol. there goes your $1000. lol
