Smartphones have evolved over the years in terms of imaging technology. Today there are smartphones which can challenge the likes of professional cameras, thanks to varying lenses, betters ISPs and technology.
From single to dual, smartphones are now racing towards mainstream three cameras.
The second lens became a proprietary feature in smartphones a couple of years back, and now it’s about a third lens. Companies and OEMs are jumping into the slowly growing trend of triple cameras.
Today, we are getting into it to find out whether smartphones actually need an extra third sensor.

Here are some of the best triple camera phones to check out if you're interested in taking peerless pictures with your smartphone. Triple cameras are markedly better at detecting depth of field (for 3D photographs), taking wide-angle shots, giving a better HDR experience, zooming more powerfully and shooting in low-light – so you have the advantage of DSLR-like images without the hassle of a clunky machine. Ahead, the best triple camera phones you can get to up your mobile photography game.

1. Best Triple camera phones that you can buy
These are the triple camera phones currently available in the market. Needless to say, this trend is going to continue fervently over the coming years and even the chipset companies are designing their new processors to include multiple camera modules. We will keep updating the list as relevant phones surface in the future.

2. Do Smartphones Need Three Cameras?
There are smartphones which offer excellent results even with a single sensor. While some do the job quite well with two cameras. So why we need a third or even a fourth sensor? Pixel smartphones still come with a single sensor and depend on post-processing for better photographs.

Are the additional sensor is more of a gimmick?

Not actually. More sensors offer a smartphone to utilize more possibilities.

Again, extra sensors don’t guarantee good pictures, if the post-processing technology is trash.

With an additional sensor, a smartphone can use pixel binning to improve low-light performance with high-resolution sensors.

Cameras can benefit from a switchable aperture. Aperture determines how much light will reach the sensor. More light helps to reduce noise and produce brighter pictures in the dark. While most of the second lens works as a telephoto sensor, helping to produce higher resolution pictures when cropped.
Some companies use the second lens as a monochrome sensor, ideal for pixel binning to improve photography performance in low light.

3. So, More Sensors Help Improve Photography?
Nope. If the post-processing and software are not worth it, additional sensors won’t help. Take the example of Google Pixel devices or iPhone XR. These are some great single-lens smartphones depending upon software for better pictures.

There is software which uses image combining techniques to produce high-quality pictures.

Finally, the purpose of an additional lens came into existence for lossless zooming, wide-angle shots and portraits with added bokeh. From 2X to 3X to 5X to 10X zooming technology now from Oppo, there are smartphones which justify the use of an additional lens.

Let’s check out some of the best three camera smartphones available in the market.

Read on to know all the details..

The DoT to the Rescue!

Apparently, many public figures, including journalists, received abusive and threatening messages, which led them to complain against such incidents.

Which is why, the DoT (Department of Telecom) took it upon themselves to find a worthy solution for this constantly increasing issue, as per the statement of an official. Fun2Ind.com

DoT Controller Communications Ashish Joshi said in a tweet, “We will take it up with the telecom operators and police heads for necessary action.”

As per reports, the DoT said in an order that license conditions bar carriage of objectionable, obscene or unauthorized content in any form on the network. This order was released on February 19, 2019.

This order also instructs telecom service operators to take immediate action against any such customers who have been abusing the internet privileges by acting this way. Sending such messages on Whatsapp or any other social media, is termed as violation of customer declaration in the customer application form.

Protect Yourself: Notify DoT Now

Here’s what to do in case you are on the receiving end of any unwanted messages on Whatsapp:

If you are a victim of such abusive, threatening, vulgar content, or if you find anything offensive, take a screenshot of the messages and their content immediately.

Email the screenshots and mobile number of the offender/s to ccaddn-dot@nic.in.

The order says, “If anyone is receiving abusive/offensive/death threats/ vulgar whatsapp messages ,please send screen shots of the message along with the mobile numbers at ccaddn-dot@nic.in” soas.in

What About Other Social Media Platforms?
This action by Govt. over offensive messages on Whatsapp is appreciated, but it is not clear whether the same action can be done for other social media platforms as well. Facebook, Twitter, Reddit etc are some of the top social media networks, where users often face abusive and offensive messages.

We will keep you updated, as we receive more updates.

What do you think of this initiative? Will this help stop the unrestricted forwarding of offending messages? Share your opinions with us in the comments section below!
