EyeAF (eye autofocus) can identify people or animals in the viewfinder and lock focus on their eyes. That means all the photos of your fur-baby will be in focus.

The front-facing camera is just OK. I wished it was closer in quality to the rear cameras.

I took four photos from this same position. The first was was the ultrawide-angle camera. It's the full-frame equivalent of a 16mm lens.
