Evaluation

The lens features 10x zoom, which is equivalent to a camera lens and is a clear departure from existing smartphone-attached cameras. Despite its high functionality, it is lightweight and still easy to use as a phone. A design where high functionality does not hinder usability is highly appreciated.
