    The camera is amazing in certain light conditions. Like it takes beautiful pictures outdoors and the macros are absolutely gorgeous. But in low light conditions it definitely takes grainy photos. So if you really want to take great photos everywhere with the op5. Try manual camera setting.

    Might be fine for you. But I want to decide myself when I want to use which lens of a DUALcamera.

    This is the whole purpose for bying a phone with a dualcamera.

    I do not care whether Apple is doing the same. I do not want to buy an IPhone.

    OP even did not try until now to explain how it officially shall work, although askdd many time in the Q&A on Monday and all this shitstorm here in the forum.

    If it is at all 80%. Probably more 95%, because there are seldom ideal lightening conditions.

    Then buy another phone. OP marketed the OP5 with the only USP on the dualcamera. So people bought the OP5 especially for this feature. So we can not now suddenlx say: " oh well, who needs a camera anyeay?"

    What comes around, goes around...

    I've taken a few pictures so far and I'm impressed with the quality but those were taken outside in sunlight or in rooms with good lighting. lowlight situations is where the camera suffers a bit but with future updates it can be improved upon. I don't see this as an "epic fail" like some do.

    It all depends from what you are coming from (which smartphone) and whether you had already experience with real photography and real cameras (DSLR or high-end mirrorless).

    This explains why there are user who like the results of the OP5 and others not.

    Totally agree with you there, I've been using (android) smartphone cameras for a long time my first was the HTC EVO if anybody remembers that phone, so I know a lot of people aren't going to be happy but for me it's one of the best cameras out there.

    I had a Xiaomi Mi5 before. I know it's not the perfect comparison, but OP5 captures great photos with good light. Lowlight is a bit more tricky because the sensors are really small and there's no OIS, but i still believe that most of the issues can be resolved with software updates.

    For all of you that think that the second camera is a dummy...

    The camera software automatically decides when is it the best for the second camera to be turned on

    Because of your lighting environment. Watch this video. It's a perfect explanation and it also explains the iPhone 7 camera as well because it also has the same issue.

    That's weird, my 3T has got a bad camera too. I wonder if it's an update issue and can be resolved through time?
