No true optical zoom.

I am not away of any built in phone camera with true optical zoom. Instead, they seamlessly switch from one focal length to another, using digital zoom in between. Misleading: a phone with the equivalent of 30mm and 70mm lenses can give a much cleaner image at 70mm than at 60mm. My phone shows fixed points (e.g., 1x and 5x) corresponding to each lens, but I can select either one and "zoom" to the other.
