Supposing you are going to buy a smart phone price over $500, and there are only two cameras on the smartphone. If there are two options but same price :

option 1: A main camera + a tele-camera,maybe 2x optical zoom;

option 2: A main camera + a ultra - wide - camera, maybe 120° view angle;

Which one will you choose? Why?

    I feel like for my usages ultra wide is much more useful than telephoto. While telephoto let's you get a lot closer without losing detail I feel like wide angle lets you be more creative with your shots, plus you can fit much more in the one image which is especially helpful of you need to take a big group picture or something. To make this work though you need to make sure that the switch between normal and wide angle doesn't mean sacrifice of quality of image (especially during night). I get that it's probably gonna be a bit worse but that's fine, as long as it good enough.
