When zooming in past 10x, a picture of the target will appear in the corner of the screen. You can use this as a guide when zooming in on the person or object you wish to capture. This is especially helpful when zooming in from an extreme distance to help you get that flawless shot.

Space Zoom includes digital zoom, which may cause some image deterioration.

Crop your photos

After taking a super zoomed-in photo, you can crop it however you like and still retain the photo’s quality. This is due to the camera’s high resolution, which will preserve your original photo.

Navigate to and open the Gallery app, and then select the photo you want to crop. Tap the Edit icon, and touch and drag the corners of the photo to resize it to your liking. Once you’ve found the correct size, tap Save. You can also tap Reset if you need to start over. Your newly cropped photo will be added to your Gallery next to the original photo.

Crop your photos

Switch between the photos to see the cropped and uncropped versions. You can continue cropping by selecting the photo, and then tapping Edit again.
