    Please try helping me out here as it's my first post here.

    I bought the phone on 10th and got it yesterday (12th).

    The main reason for buying the phone was it's highly rated camera.Top reviewers rated it as the phone of the year plus the website where I got it from,there people were very happy and rated the phone excellently.
    This made me buy it.

    Now as soon as I opened the camera I was disappointed.
    The details are poor.
    You can't zoom in quite much and even the zoom causes the pictures look like paintings.
    Even sometimes the selfie camera looks better than the rear.

    I feel there's some issues with my unit as around every 9 out of 10 reviewers called the camera great.
    Maybe my expectations were quite high but still the pictures don't look quite as good as the pictures I've seen all over on the internet.

    Please help me out here.

    I sure as hell didn't buy this phone for the camera. I don't take many pics... I bought it for performance, battery life and rom support. Hopefully OnePlus will drop an update that can satisfy the photographers out there because the hardware is very capable, but the software processing screws it Everytime.

    You must have read some wrong reviews. Camera is not so good it not perfect light condition. Sad but that's the case. Otherwise the phone is great. But software of the camera is not to par with otherwise great software.

    I guess I'll have to live with it.
    I'll ask them for a replacement though.

    But if I end up getting the same quality then I'll just forget the fact that this was supposed to have a good camera.

    Other than the camera everything is wonderful.
    Let's enjoy the good things and try to overcome the disappointment.

    Turn off the beauty mode as that will cause the picture look somewhat different than expected. I did click few pics in the dark n the finish looks like an oil painting(when zoomed in). I didn't try to take pictures in low light after the update, will try soon n see how it goes.
    if ur trying to use pro mode then pls understand what are the different features n how to use it, as i have tried pro mode n it's not easy to take pictures using pro mode without prior experience of using an DSLR

    I think you still falls under 10days return policy. So return it before you start regretting :)

    Turn off beauty mode and HDR mode...You will get sharper photos..I too had blurry photos at the time of purchase but I turned these features off and restarted the camera after clearing camera cache,.Then it worked like a charm.Got clearer and sharper shots.And also don't forget to wipe your camera before taking pics.Fingerprints or dust can be present on the camera.So clean it and u r good to go.

    If you just got the phone are you aren't satisfied with, can't you return it?

    Also, what the hell was inside that jar on the third picture?
