What's "wide", and what's "normal" or "telephoto" or "too wide", is more than a matter of personal preference or semantics — it's cultural, and the perception of those values has shifted, thanks to iPhone popularization of photography, especially selfies and group shots. Once upon a time, 50mm (effective 35mm focal length) was "normal", 35mm was "wide" and 85mm and up was "tele." But now it's more like 28mm is "normal" and 58mm really is more of a portrait lens for the kind of photography that iPhones are best at. And for superwide, 18mm (effective) and even wider is no longer an expensive optic, with its style of extreme perspective creating a whole new genre of popular photography.Every iPhone I've ever used has been cursed by a camera lens that records too-wide a field of view. I was eager to replace my iPhone 7 Plus (no face recognition, decreasing battery life) with the Xr replacement, thinking its second camera would be the "mild" telephoto (52 mm equivalent is pretty damn "mild"), but instead, they add a second ultra-wide lens. I don't spend a lot of time taking pictures of the sky at night, although I guess now I could do so to find the constellations. Don't people take far more pictures of people they know than pictures of places that they could more easily obtain from an enormous number of online sources? The absence of that portrait lens and true optical background blur in the least expensive iPhone 11 is a huge mistake, I think.
