The point of using telephoto lens on a smartphone is so that you can get the natural bokeh when taking portrait shots of humans.
Since main sensor of smartphone usually has a wide aperture (f/1.6-1.8), adding a telephoto lens to it will allow you to take some natural bokeh without resorting to the lousy fake bokeh in “portrait” mode.
Apexel lenses are cheap, so yeah, the quality will not be as good as MOMENT lenses or SHIFTCAM lenses .
When it comes to lenses, you get what you paid for. And I thought someone like you who specializes in photography and videography should already know this fact as common knowledge…..
