The 5MP front camera is for taking wide-angle photos. A normal camera lens takes a 75° angle photo and the problem with that angle is that it’s a small frame that is not good for group photos or scenic photos. To take wide-angle photos, you need a wide-angle camera. With a wide-angle camera, you get an angle that fits everything on the frame without you moving back to capture the whole scene.
The camera is for taking close-ups of small objects. Trying to capture close-ups of small objects can be difficult using a normal camera lens. The more you move your smartphone towards the subject the more distorted the image becomes. With a macro camera, you can take clear, detailed images of up to 2.5cm of the subject without losing clarity.
