    Its useless to complain over here - they will just say its due to design/sensor/ISP/features and nothing is wrong. Ive decided to sell my Oneplus and get a Google Pixel.

    Onplus 6 here. I'm having the same exact problems here, and my compliments for pointing them out in such of an orderly manner. Absolutely software related as the view of the camera direct from the lenses, the frame especially on full 4:3 but also macro looks pretty clear, it is only after you have taken the photo that the result is not the same as what you thought the camera will capture.

    I bought google pixel 2 for my wife today. Will depend on that phone for family photos for now. Its photo results are much better especially indoors

    Oneplus should have some expert photographer in the team to help with photos, who knows how to use a dSLR in manual mode to get good results.

    Oneplus problem is they do not seem to have a photographer in the team who understands shutter and iso.

    Their response to me about faulty shutter and iso speed selection was that their sensor and ISP works using wrong settings. Lol.

    Not true, Not true at all. I have made a few complaints, and support requests, and always I had a replay from OP. They surely need some time to fix it, yup?

    Its good that your issue was fixed. I get replies too. It's just that the replies are "its not a bug, its a feature" or some other justification.

    Aye, i got exactly the same issue, seems that as soon as the picture is taken the phone breaks it during save. I have tried different camera apps but its the same on all of them, also i have tried having the phone in a stand to exclude eventual movement of the hand and its the same.

    Yes we all have this problem. In the preview the picture looks very good and when it's done it's not that good.

    Another one with the same problem. It looks software related, because the live view shows pretty clear images, full of details. Then you hit the shutter button and shit happens. The image processing adds a lot of blur and all the detail is lost.

    Please do something to fix that!!!

    Another thing, does someone notice a little purplish glare on low light conditions? For example focusing some dark or black objects. This glare only appears on live view, when you take the photo doesn't show this glare. You can see it in the attached photograph, at the top and in my shoe.

    I'm facing oil painting issue with the rear camera. i think it software issue that can be rectified with ota update. It started after 5.1.8 and they may be working on it. Has been very buggy!! to say the least.
