    Even i made a huge mistake by believing YouTube videos and buying OnePlus 5t. its nothing like shown in those videos. those videos are paid reviews.

    "...In conclusion, it is a good camera, excellent for a 500 € phone, and we shouldn't complain a lot this year for that reason..."

    I think you've misunderstood the real issue.

    To say that the camera is ok for its price is absurd when it is a matter of development, not that the hardware is better or worse, more expensive or cheaper phone than other brands.

    It is not about comparing, in price range, with other phones, the real question is not whether the camera is better or worse than others in hardware, the question is of a better and successful development for better results. The hardware is there, is very good, another thing is to know (or want) through development how to get an optimal result.

    OnePlus has very good developers although I don't know if their technical resources are enough (in a matter of development).

    OnePlus needs huge work on Camera Department. Because when it comes to camera hardware they were pretty good but software algorithms still lacks

    after using the op5t from it's release, I m facing the camera issues. This is the only problem which is very serious because it has been advertised heavily.
    pls correct this asap. I don't want to get another phone just because of this.

    I have experienced all the same things here, but the one I dislike the most is the oversaturation. Promode is a nice work around for that sometimes but we dont have the ability to alter the saturation all that much in video. I would absolutely *love* a flat/s-log option for recording video (because I really dislike using crummy 3rd party apps for that)

    I've already written several times about the OP6 camera, and with great honesty today I'm tempted to go and buy another phone, because this time I'm not at all satisfied with my smartphone. For me the photographic part is important, I need to work, of course I also have SLR cameras, but often the phone is more 'comfortable. I have already expressed my problems several times, sent the log files and everything I have been asked to do about OP, but patches have not yet been released and the camera still does not satisfy me. Now mine doesn't want to be a controversy, but OP instead of wanting to release 2 new phones a year without being able to treat and test them anymore, maybe he should go back to just one phone a year, but well groomed and working well.

    really good testing...!
    and nicely written too...!

    could you maybe provide the ISO and shutter speed values for each example...?
    that would be great...!

    Absolutely true. I remember a lot of similar problems on my op3. I think OnePlus just has a really bad development team on the camera.

    Thanks :) I saw many people post threads about this issue and YouTube reviews also mentioned it. I think OnePlus is doing a great job listening to its customers, but sometimes we have to provide information in a very descriptive and organized way for them to quickly understand what the problem is and fix it.

    By close ups, do you mean macro? With macro you may get blurriness.

    I updated thread so you can download actual files I transferred from OP6 and iPhone6s. You can look at the metadata of those files to find out the ISO, shutter speed, etc...
