Hi all, So let's talk about that macro camera, what do you think? Have any of you used a smartphone dedicated macro camera before?

Whilst I like the idea, and I'm exactly the kind of person who will use that feature a lot, I'm worried that it will just be a gimmick. I think that the image from a 2MP sensor with a small lens will actually be lower quality than using the main camera and cropping the photo to manually "zoom" the photo. Okay, the composition of the photo, depth of field, etc won't be the same, but the detail probably will be less good. I read reviews of the Moto One Macro and a Xiaomi phone with this lens and they said pretty much the same thing.
Note that the minimum depth is 3.6cm, which is quite close (obviously) I wonder if the camera has an LED ring around it for illuminating the subject, otherwise lighting will be difficult.
