I've had a mediocre smart phone for close to 5 years and although I rarely use the flashlight feature at the time I got the phone they all only had one camera lens. Now moving forward some have 2,3, even 4 camera lenses. The one thing I've realized is (I don't think) there is no second or 3rd LED emitter on these the flashlights on even the expensive cameras having been greatly changed. Imagine if you had a 500 or even 1000 lumen mode and a throwing and flood lens. Is there much of a difference in the "flashlight" of a 1500 dollar Iphone or top tear Samsung vs a $100 phone other than perhaps better CRi?
