You can have a greater perspective compression for a whole different style of portraits.

I would recommend you to visit a camera site like dpreview.com and read about the technical terms and focal lenghts and calculations, before defending Xiaomi's lies and false marketing.
        Its a great phone, so why lie ? this does not serve us as consumers. .

If you look at the back of the phone its clearly says 5x optical zoom. Focal lenghts are fixed and defined from at starting relative 18 mm point. Do the math and you will find out that Note 10 has 3,7 X optical zoom. This is a fact stated also by GSMarena in their review and several other tech reviewers online. Huawei P30 Pro has a very advanced periscope lens (look it up), which enables it to be a real optical 5x zoom (focal length equivalent)

            I have no idea why phone manufacturers make 2, 3, 4 cameras, camera 1 with a huge sensor and normal lens, mostly with OIS, Camera 2 with much smaller sensor and zoom, it's just like cropping the main sensor. Camera 3 usually a wide angle camera, which you could have gotten even wider with a panorama feature. I'd rather have one really good camera but I guess marketing is everything.

              yah i agree that telephoto camera takes best potraits, was wondering why iphones potraits look natural while in other brands people faces bends and look longer .for this evidence from mi note 10 5x shot ,it might be possible that apple also use telephotos camera for potrait mode.

                AnonD-894375, 10 Nov 2019I know 50mm close to what our eye perspective, but its not ... moreSO would I, cropping in a 3.7X zoom camera is sort of 90mm equivalent, but they are further cropping it.. However, the image is gonna stay at 90 mm eq, just a tad more zoomed in though.

Which is also why many portrait are taken at 85-135mm, the background compression also make it less distracting. But well, for a smartphone, i take 50mm anytime over wide for portrait!

Xiaomi's 3.8x has the same field of view as Huawei's 3.4x because Xiaomi's main camera has 24.2mm whereas Huawei's main camera has 27mm. So you can't compare a 2x camera from smartphone A at 2x with a 2x camera from smartphone B at 2x, you need to choose the same field of view. And by the way, basically no phone has a zoom lens. They all have prime lenses.

                        Anonymous, 09 Nov 2019No its not 5x optical zoom as claimed by Xiaomi.. it a 5x h... moreEvery smartphone camera is optical, no matter whether you crop or not. The term "optical zoom" is marketing, if it is used with a different megapixel count. You could also say that every 12 megapixel camera has a 3 megapixel 2x optical zoom camera, if we use the marketing definition of optical zoom and neglect the increase in noise. A real optical zoom doesn't reduce the megapixel count. So Xiaomi's 3.8x 8 megapixel camera will actually capture as much detail as a 12 megapixel 3.1x camera. And Huawei's 80mm 8 megapixel camera isn't 3x optical zoom either as it doesn't have 12 megapixels and also the physical focal length isn't three times as large, so it should rather capture as much detail as a 12 megapixel 2.4x camera. Even Apple doesn't have a 2.0x optical zoom setting as the physical focal length isn't twice as large (which leads to more noise in good light conditions), but at least the megapixel count is the same.
