    New SE and photos are poor quality and are only 2 mp is size. Why have a 12 mp camera? They look really bad.

    Savvy marketing. Or a lie, depends on how honest you are with yourself.

    The absolute largest "normal" non-live photo I've taken is 2.4mb, in landscape mode, slightly zoomed, at the beach.

    The largest "panorama" photo I've taken is 8.9mb, portrait mode, no zoom, at the beach.

    The largest "live" photo, landscape mode, slightly zoomed is 9.7mb.

    It's pretty clear how apple is bending the rules here.. All photos look excellent, were quick to save, and in great focus.

    Are you talking about megapixels or megabytes?

    ???? What on earth are you talking about? Go research Megapixels and Megabytes before spouting such silliness.

    The front facing camera does indeed have 1.2 mp. That's the selfie camera. The back facing camera is 12 mp.
