    Hi, I've had a Oneplus 6 for a few years and I started uploading stories on Instagram some months ago and noticed that when I use music on them, the photo quality is reduced drastically.
    I've tried lowering the quality myself but this didn't work.

    By the way, I know it's my phone's problem because I tired on an old Android phone and it worked fine.
    Thanks.

    Difference here may not be too much but at night it is way worse.

    It looks like if you put on a filter. It's my experience that Instagram lowers the quality of everything that you post.. Probably because they want small file size images for faster loading speed? Could it be that the quality of your pictures on your old phone are smaller in size, so Instagram doesn't need to lower quality that much?

    Nope, that's not it. I've just checked and in both phones the size and resolution is the same. Even if they were different, I've tried reducing the resolution so Instagram can't compress it, but I'm still getting that awful quality.

    EDIT: I checked and the size on the old phone 298kb and on Oneplus it's 600. Why is is that the same resolution takes more space in my phone?

    Ohh is it because of the aspect ratio that the image is bigger on the Oneplus?

    Weird.. o_O Could you try making a picture with Instagram's build in camera and see if the problem still occurs?

    That could also be the case yes! You could try resizing and decreasing resolution till you get it right? Probably using the Instagram build in camera will do the trick too..

    I tried but instagram compressed the image again. By the way the image in the post was taken with Instagram camera exactly because I thought it would help.
    I really don't know what else I can do lol.
    Thanks for your time though.
