    Hello,

    I recently purchased OnePlus 7. (6GB RAM / 128GB storage)

    I almost satisfied with all features & speed of the phone except the Camera.

    After I got the phone, I received 2-3 updates which includes upgrading camera features too. But still camera pictures quality is not satisfying.

    1) OnePlus 7 features 48MP camera but it is only available in Manual mode. The picture clicked with 48MP settings having file size of just 10-12 MB with very less details.

    2) Normal in Auto mode, camera picture sizes come around 3-4 MB. By default we get the compressed & processed picture, with less details & sharpness.

    3) Picture colour adjustment is good but it reduces the sharpness of the picture.

    4) As compared to OnePlus 6/6T, camera pictures quality of OnePlus 7 is very bad. Not satisfying.

    5) In slow motion, even with full room lights, video quality comes very pathetic with flickering in the screen.

    OnePlus seriously need to look into this matter & provide satisfying camera quality if they are claiming of 48MP ultra-shot camera.

    exactly.
    the camera quality is not good as compared to OnePlus 6. i had OnePlus 6 it has very good quality.
    the issue in OnePlus 7 is the picture comes with Instagram ready photo like edited/smoothness on face. it does not take natural photos how we look like. if you take photo of Red thing it will show you thing in Orange color. color is not accurate.

    but if you check same things in OnePlus 6. it will capture perfect.

    1. The OnePlus 7 features an IMX586 sensor, which is a 48mp sensor meant to be used to create 12mp pixel-binned images. Due to the low individual pixel size and the inherent defect of Quad-Bayer sensors compared to traditional sensors, the 48 mp images are solely to be used in case you need to be able to print a banner for a billboard. In all other use cases, 12mp pixel-binned images will do much better, as that's what the IMX586 sensor is built for.

    2. 3-4 mb is the average size of an image you get from any company using the IMX586 sensor. OnePlus isn't the only one compressing the images to reduce image size.

    3. If you feel so, put it in the feedback section of the forums. And provide case scenarios where it occurs, with adequate number of pictures to prove your point. And also, how according to you the picture should look, and which phone is able to achieve a picture you like.

    4. Definitely not true. The 7 and 7 pro are clearly a level above the 6/6T. Incase you still feel otherwise, provide data in the feedback section to prove your point.

    5. True for just about any phone with 480fps or 960fps slow motion video option. It's mainly due to the incredibly small size of the sensor used in a phone compared to say, a DSLR.

    If you want OnePlus to improve the camera in some specific case scenarios, do put it in the feedback section of the forums, instead of creating a new thread. And add photos of the specific case scenarios along with what, according to you, is wrong with the photo. They have said so openly that that's the best way to help create a camera which gives image quality liked by as many people as possible.

    i feel the same way considering the file size and yes it is compressed even compared to my OP5 the images are not that sharp but the 12MP sensor on this could beat the sensor on OP6/6T theoretically but i guess few software updates could do that

    also the 48MP should be taken on bright day with no handshake for better quality although it seems that 48MP images from redmi note 7 seem better in post processing

    Hi this is a bit silly what you say. The phone is advertised as 48MP not 12MP who cares about the specifics.

    I don't see an option to select 48mp.

    Perhaps you have never heard of something called fine print. And you can click 48mp photos in the pro mode. And OnePlus themselves claim everywhere that 4 pixels combine to form 1 pixel 1.6 micron in size. So perhaps check out a phone's specifications and features before blindly buying a new one.

    when I use pro mode I dont see that option. I use the oneplus 7.
    There is no fine print in most of the websites that sell the oneplus 7 sorry. I would have read it. Do you need links?

    No, I have a OP6. But a couple of guys in my friend circle do, and it's always their phones which we use for clicking pictures. Apart from daylight, where it's more of a tie, in just about every other case scenario, especially low light, OP7 definitely takes the lead.

    I don't how you manage the over saturation in oneplus 7 while comparing with others. i have 7 and 6t... i can say 6t is taking the lead in every aspect.

    There is over saturation in videos, definitely reds. But in photos, I found the pics from the 7 a lot more natural. And a bit more contrasty. Definitely better according to me.
