It is hardware I don't want to pay for.
Don't expect to save bucks by settling for fewer lenses. Multiple lenses are the engineering trend and you're not necessarily paying a premium for them, because cheap alternative brands still have them even though they may not even be all functional! My advice, get the best deal your money can buy on a phone that doesn't mainly tout its photography capabilities as its selling point. If that comes with multiple lenses, simply ignore them and use it for what you bought it.

In cheap ones, corners are cut mostly in the camera system itself; for example, extra lenses with unknown or ambiguous functionality (e.g "artificial intelligence" lense) and poor quality image processors, while the main functionality of the phone stays pretty much the same even in newer models. "Mid range" is a tall list, so let's cut to the chase. How much are you willing to spend?
