How successful you are at taking photos with your smartphone will depend on two main things: How close you are to your subject How much zoom you can use whilst still getting good quality images If you have a premium or flagship smartphone with a telephoto camera, such as a 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x telephoto camera, or perhaps even a 10x telephoto camera, like on some Samsung Galaxy smartphones, then you’ll be able to use this “zoom” to get a closer picture of the animal or creature. However, if you don’t have a zoom or telephoto camera, then you’ll have to either, get physically closer to the subject, where safe to do so, or you’ll have to use the digital zoom. On some smartphones, like the Google Pixel range, you’ll be able to use up to about 2x zoom and still should get reasonable images. Beyond this and image quality is likely to look much worse.
