What angle would you rather have on your selfie camera: wide or narrow?
To battle this, most manufacturers have widened the angle of the selfie camera on their handsets, letting it “see” more. Most notably, LG experimented with a super-wide-angle, 120-degree snapper on the V10, and then reimagined the concept for the V20 and G6.
The benefits of such a camera when taking selfies are clear, but there is also an inherent drawback — objects that are not in the center of the camera's field of view will get stretched out and distorted. That's how you end up with an egg-shaped head, a strangely huge palm, or a Leaning Tower of Pisa that looks weirdly wide and not so much leaning.
Still, it seems that manufacturers believe that users are more willing to work with this drawback than trying to fit themselves into the frame of a narrow-FOV camera. Pretty much all of the major phone slingers, save for Apple, have a wide lens on their selfie snappers. So, what do you prefer?
