On phone cameras: Telephoto lenses that switch to main camera in low light
1

It looks like many phones with an optical zoom (For instance, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus) shut off the telephoto camera in low light and activate the main camera (26mm full frame equivalent, approximately).

Has anyone here experienced this situation, and can you tell me what the thresshold is? That is, does this happen before the sun goes down? Indoors? A little bit after dark? Etc.

What's the darkest condition under which one can use say, the 2x optical zoom in phones that have a 2x camera? Thanks.f
