We know, we already said this, but here it goes again: with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple almost mastered the smartphone photography game. Yes, almost, because for us, the camera on the Google Pixel is pretty much the best snapper ever mounted on a phone. And we believe that we’re not the only ones believing this…
Back to iPhones, though, what we really like is that there are a lot of accessories, both universal or dedicated, able to help you take even better photos! For example, have you seen those phones with selfie cameras featuring a very wide angle? Well, Apple doesn’t have such things, but this doesn’t mean that there aren’t any lenses for this!
