Is that serious? 4 cameras? Who needs the crap please. Even dual cameras, I find partially useless.


If the part takes good pictures, why not? Sure, it looks a bit funny with 4 cameras on the back, but I have no problem with that. Is just a matter of taste.


Exactly, you can not say more funny. Just a ugly bar on the back clapped. Hopefully, the other manufacturers do not jump on the train.
