Pop-up cameras have been a great source of fascination for many mobile users in recent times. An addition of this makes the phone look classier and more modernized. People especially buy phones with a pop-up camera to experience this elite feature and have fun with it.
But little do you know; pop-up cameras actually make the devices unreliable in a lot of ways. People might buy phones for experiencing this feature but end up with not so good feeling about it because of its delicacy and non-reliability.
Delicate Mechanical System
The biggest reason behind this is that camera operates upon a very delicate mechanical system. This system contains parts that are highly delicate and can get damaged easily. Even if the phone falls somewhere or if some pressure is put upon it, this system may get damaged or collapsed, directly affecting the working of your pop-up camera. If your phone is perfect for playing situs poker, then it will be perfect to hold the camera too!
Water and Dust Resistance
The up and down movement of this camera does not let it be water or dust resistant. This movement may let the water or dust enter into the phone easily. Moreover, the camera itself crashes whenever it gets stuck with a dust particle or something similar.
What if Your Phone Fell with the Camera Up?
Falling down of phones is not something impossible, nor is it predictable. That is why everyone prefers to buy a strong and sturdy mobile phone that does not get damaged easily upon falling or due to any other similar reason. But what if it does? And what if your phone falls from your hand while you were about to click a selfie? Well, that’s kind of a critical situation, especially when we are discussing the pop-up camera phone.
As described earlier, the mechanical system of this camera is highly delicate, and so does the camera. If your phone falls down with the camera up, and especially if it falls right upon the pop-up camera, you might lose it, and there are no second thoughts to it. Moreover, if you lost your pop-up camera or it gets damaged, there is no easy repair for it too because it is not a screen that can be changed or a battery that can be replaced.
It’s a camera with a dedicated mechanical system. If you would want it to be replaced, then you would either have to pay a lot, or you will need to keep using that phone if it would still work.
