    Hello there and welcome to the s#@+ show... :) Now seriously, I have an OP6 bought on day 1 of the launch and the phone is an Hercules!!
    Hercules just has a tiny problem... he's eyes are crap so he cannot really hit anything!!!
    From day 1 I've noticed the issues with the camera, the lack of sharpness, the inaccurate colours, and I was even tempted to return it but, given the vibe from the community and seeing that OP was prolific with updates, I decided to hang on to it. I also tried Gcam port early on and saw the difference in quality so I was confident that OP would just update the firmware and boom, sorted!! After all it's a software issue right?!
    I was wrong...
    Op have probably focused on developing the 6T so no improvement was made, but what is even more surprising is that it looks the T has the same issues!! Seriously WTF?!
    It is starting to look like this won't ever get fixed, because now they are probably working on the 7, or even worse, their algorithm is unfixable and they need to re-do it completely. Given the amount of ppl that have posted on these forums regarding this issue, you'd think that if they could fix it, they would, so it is not looking good for us.
    I just bought a MI8 lite for the missus and the camera actually produces better sharper pictures. I wasn't even aware of how bad the colour reproduction was until I put them side to side... 250 vs 600$ phone, ridiculous if you ask me but hey, I still get a good AnTuTu score to brag to the lads!!!

    it is certainly not looking good for us and all they seems to have done so far is hire people to address the posts and complaints on here to keep up this whole community thing going.
    Of course they have supported the gcam folks behind the scenes but that must have created camera lot of strife within.

    This is the main reason why I am thinking of selling my one plus 6 and getting a refurbished S9/S9 plus I know I will lose stock android buy who cares when I have to use a modded 3rd party app to click good photos,another problem with One plus 6 is we one plus 6 users are on 9.0.2 when one plus 6T users are on 9.0.10 even when this phone launched later.

    They included a average speaker with one plus 6 which distort at higher volume and why the hell one would do that is beyond me

    well lesson learned my next phone is not going to be One plus device.

    Pixel 2/XL now have huge discounts. If the camera is your thing, try those.

    Wrong forum. This is for the 6, not the 6T.

    Really? I can get paid for posting?!
    Anyway, its good we can get other (free) camera apps to try. I imagine there would be problems with just copying someone else's (Google's) code and if hiring more software engineers is the answer, then costs go up (Pixel 3XL).

    I suspect the same, they wouldn't be able just to copy someone else's code without being in some legal trouble. If they could that would be an easy fix and they would have probably done already.

    Finally the update rolled out. Cannot see any difference in the normal camera shots (didn't try night mode).
    That's it folks, there isn't going to be a camera fix!
    Now 1+ is probably working on 7 and 7t so it's time to move on.
    You fooled me once 1+, well played...
