    Not yet tried on the low light but during the day time also I didn't see any issues

    Sure the slow response will still not be as bad as Sony Xperia S, it was awfully slow anyway after which releasing an update firmware 6.2.B.1.96 was meant to improve this but did nothing. So if you used that i am sure it would seem fine comparably

    It's not very good, sometimes takes 5 seconds to take a pic, by that time the subject has moved. It also has the same problem as every other Android phone I've used and that's the flash. The aperture opening is out of sync with the flash, the flash goes off and the pic is taken as the flash goes out so the picture is dark even with flash. Happens all the time.

    absolutely not true, i filmed a short vid yesterday around a campfire, it captured everyones face in high detail without a problem, i could even focus on the campfire so that everything around it would be darker!

    the Oneplus Ones Camera performance seems to be a very personal thing. One person would call it fantastic while the next calls it mediocre.

    You have to ask yourself the question.

    Do I want to pay $400 for a camera that can be used as a phone, ~ if so you will probably be disappointed.

    Or a Phone that can be used as a camera. ~ Then its fine for taking happy snaps, just don't expect to win any international photography awards with it.

    Upon the little time I've had at handling it, it seems good.
    I'll test it some more.

    I think it is really good in the daylight, it helps to use the focus on items to sharpen the pic and fiddle with the shutter speed etc

    I agree, for photos to post on Facebook, Instagram or General pics it's great, if you're planning to sell your digital SLR and become a wedding photographer you're gunna have a bad time

    I'm not a fan of the camera at all, seems slow to focus, slow to snap a picture. Definite downgrade from my old iPhone 5.

    All my indoor photos turned out bad and grainy. My Galaxy S4 takes much better pictures.
    This is the only thing I hate about my OPO besides of course the infamous yellow band.

    I had a M7 before to, the colors on the OPO are a little bit less vivid, but expecially with the great camera app the pictures and videos are great!

    If you like the nexus 5 camera then you won't notice any difference.

    I think it's great. the stabilization and the way it makes your photo lighter when you click on it to sharpen. I love it! One of the best features of the camera, aside from the batterylife.

    it depends on what you use your phone for, i like to take photos with my phone but i just never seem to complain about it,if i wanna take high res pics i just use a DSLR..

    It's unrealistic to expect great photos in low light from a phone. That honestly goes for any camera phone available on the market today. The thing that distinguishes iso performance is the sensor size and as we know cell phones are all quite small to fit anything substantial. As a photographer, even some modern crop sensor dslrs still have relatively poor low light performance till this day. That's just the thing we have to accept :)

    Look into other camera and photo editing software.
