    -Not a single question about the noisy and blurry pictures has been answered.
    -Not a single question about comparing gcam vs stock cam with or without provided pictures has been answered.
    -Not a single question about an existing thread and about 90% of the users of the OP6 complaining about bad quality blurred, noisy , over-saturated pictures has been answered.
    -Not a sigle question about how can independent devs make such a great port of the Gcam and OP devs are struggling to make a decent stock cam has been answered, and let's not forget about OP5t , OP5, OP3 users that has been ignored too.
    Is this a Q/A about the camera or only questions like what are you going to eat today or how do you like your eggs cooked or what are you wearing right now are going to be answered?
    If you, and by you i mean OP, can't handle such a problem or even such a Q/A thread why are you even opening it in the first place?( those are not the questions i would like to receive an answer for, i would rather prefer an answer for the list above).
    Best Regards

    I have a question rather suggestion for gallery app! How about adding background play feature to gallery for videos! Then we can play a video and go on to some other app with video being played in background!

    Do you plan to implement camera api2 on the oneplus 5 /5t to be able to use 3rd party camera apps such as Google camera port?

    Hi Team, whenever the slow motion video is captured indoor, the quality of the video is really bad. Any suggestions to improve.

    I have a suggestion: could it be implemented a functionality such as PhotoSphere in Google Camera?

    Having stock apps in Google Play is a good idea. This way if someone prefers using 3rd party apps (like Google Photos for example) they can easily switch and updates will be much easier to deliver (users won't have to wait OTAs to fix a minor bug). So if that's what you are going to do then I hope everything goes as planned. Good luck!

    please note that I'm using a non official porting done by an amateur programmer and that this is just beta1.

    These photos look ok to me. They're sharp, detailed, and well focused. And you DO look like a human, haha. Your son's fingers look like that because of the angle, nothing unusual in my opinion. The main issue with the front camera is with the color tone. The skin tends to look blueish or pinkish depending on the lighting which is also the case in your photos. That's something that definitely needs improvement.

    It's because he had HDR on, read his post. HDR processing gives sometimes strange results, like oil painting for example. There's no a miraculous method to achieve a perfect photo especially on a phone. You should be relistic.
