    I respect that you put yourself out there considering it's no secret that a lot of users aren't happy with with the camera.

    Work Question: Any chance we'll get a Google camera port?

    Personal Question: What's your favorite movie?

    Hi there @Jimmy Z. 8D

    I think this thread is gonna be a tough one...;D
    So I 'll just keep it simple...

    Where do you get the inspiration from for tweaking the Camera App.. ?

    What's your workflow when editing photos...?

    Thanks in advance...! ;D

    Hello dear JimmyIt's a pretty nice thing that we can actually discuss topics about you guys I already starting tó love this brand

    Personal:How difficult was it to be the product manager of the camera?

    Work:In what ways can a phone outperform another phone with the same megapixel amount?For example:I do like the camera on the Oneplus 6 but whenever I compare this to my classmate's phone(Huawei mate 10 pro) I feel that my phone's camera is garbage but actually many people says that Oneplus 6's camera is pretty good/decent.
    (I can't give photo examples but my friend's phone clearly outperforms mine in detail)

    Wish the best for you

    my question to you is why Huawei mate 10 2016 device + pixel 2017 have a better camera and scored more than one plus 6 at dxomark

    Would you mind informing us as to when the Front Camera on OnePlus 5T phone will get the Portrait mode or for that matter on other phones like 3, 3T and 5

    Last but not the least, the camera is one of the best features of OnePlus 5T. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

    I read some of the posts in this thread (not ALL of them, that'd be too frustrating, hehe) and I saw many people complaining on the camera. I really don't see why? I think the camera on the OnePlus 6 is amazing and I've shot some of my BEST photos ever! Great job to all of you guys!

    I'd like to ask a few questions, but if I can only ask 2 I have to choose. Here they are:

    1. Are you working to improve the front facing camera performance? The photos/selfies are not bad but still not quite on par with the high end devices out there. For example the faces tend to be somewhat blurry or hazy, and the background is just not good, usually quite blown out when taken on a bright sky for example.

    2. Can you possibly improve the night shots performance? The details and brightness are great, but the dynamic range could be better and the colour balance doesn't always match the reality.

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Hi Jimmy
    Wish you a nice day
    1. Tea Or Coffee ? And why?
    2. We all saw the power of ported GCam on OP devices, why your section do not use their processing in the camera ?! is it about licencing or what?

    I am unable to search any unknown number in the call history. E.g. I had a missed call by say number by phone number 123456 and I want to search my call history by this number then it is impossible although I was able to do so in MIUI. Similarly, I am unable to search call history (not contacts) by name of person because when I search, it shows me contacts tab rather than call history and I am forced to tap that contact to know the call history that is not available in contacts on certain occasions.
