    The OP5 camera is a real disappointment for me. The low light and autofocus is terrible. In real world usage, i.e moving objects like people and indoor/night usage it's awful. Very difficult to get a good sharp photo. Who takes photos of flowers on a bright sunny day? Only reviewers!

    simply underexpose the OP3 image bei 1/3 or 1/2 of a stop and you have the same result.

    I am a big fan on OnePlus and till date bought OnePlus one, OnePlus two, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5.

    As per launch event and other blogs and reviews, the biggest difference between OnePlus 3t and OnePlus 5 apart from hardware upgrades was dual camera.

    Even the OnePlus 5 tab line says Dual Camera. Clearer Photos. But, I am very disappointed with the camera output. Photos taken by OnePlus 3T comes better than OnePlus 5 in low light condition.

    OnePlus team need to seriously look into the camera issue and come up with the solution.

    Hope they read this topic, 14 pages of disappointed OP5 users with their "Clearer Photos". I'll probably return mine if it is not improved soon

    The DNG files are fine you can process them nicely. It's the default jpg's produced by the camera that aren't great, due to the upscaling.

    If they enable DNG for the telephoto as well as the wide I'll be happy.

    What cutting edge hardware did they rush to market that wasn't already in use by other devices?
    The sub 1080P Optic Amoled screen?
    They said the same about the cameras on all the other OP device's and none of then have been fixed.
    Do you guys actually ever look at OP's history? Or do you just believe sooner or later they will pull a rabbit out of a hat.

    Here's my test. I am covering the secondary camera with my finger intermittently. Notice how the image shifts to the primary camera view every time I cover the secondary. It also switches back to the secondary when it detects that there's sufficient light hitting the sensor.

    the camera on OP5 is a joke. 16mp camera is grainy and poor in low lighting. the 20mp telephoto lense doesn't work at all. not even on portrait mode. I covered it with my finger and there was no change.

    I thought that the two cameras would each take a photo and the program would digitally stitch the two together.

    how can you make the claim of "clearer photos" and put essentially the same camera sensor as the OP3/3T?

    clearer photos for 2013 standards maybe.

    I sincerely hope this gets fixed in a patch. as it stands now I can't recommend this phone to anyone else. I hope it gets fixed before my family gets ready to replace their phones.
