OnePlus 8 Low Selfie Camera Quality?

    I have the exact same problem, as apparently a lot of people have as well. I am 100% convinced it's a software issue, I think what happens is that the image processing tries to apply something to camera and it begins to play up and make it all blurry instead when light is poor.

    Snapchat has always been notoriously crappy on Android devices, but never this bad like what I'm experiencing with the OP8 in low light - I think it's because Snapchat zooms in way too much anyway for one, and then it just takes a screenshot of the front facing camera feed (which in itself is already suffering in low light).

    As of right now, I'm running Oxygen OS 10.5.4, which specifically details improvement to the front camera so I'm wondering if it went too far and can be patched fairly quick?

    there's no way the physical camera in the phone is worse than the OnePlus 5T I had... [e]1f623[/e]

    I have the same issue OP8 if the Light is not perfect, the phots are defaced. And I am not taking decaed as in the scin and details are blurred away. I am talking defaced as in a very very bad horror movie! In another tread they suggest to use the PRO mode, specially the RAW mode but even there the fotos look the same ....

    I am convinced it is a Software issue. I tried all the cache cleaning, full reset of the device, ... as the support suggested. No change at all. Now they claim its the physical hardware and they asked me to send it back for replacement. I doubt they can fix it with a hardware replacement.

    Honestly, what if you have a traffic accident and you need to document damage or an injury? Those defaced photos are never accepted as proof for anything. That is a problem.

    I am sooo annoyed that I am already thinking if I should stay with my very very old iPhone 6 as it makes with its bad 8MP camera way better photos than the OP8 currently does.

    My OP8 selfie camera issue is that it doesn't automatically flip the mirror image for you; clearly it can be done by the software. I don't want to use a separate app to flip every selfie when it should automatically be done (nothing lamer than seeing famous people's IG selfie posts where it's not flipped). I've been using LG G7, and LG's software flips the selfies automatically, even videos taken by the selfie cam...

    Selfie post processing needs improvement. Oppo does better job in post processing.

    Looking forward to see oneplus beat oppo in selfie quality.

    one plus 8 rear camera over exposed and smudged faces in low light. Is it the same case with all one+8 phones ? it's working well in outdoor landscape picture, if the saturation is ignored and edited. But I am really disappointed with the picture quality received inside building lighting. I have to adjust the exposure, focus, take same picture multiple times to get a good quality picture. Also, in 48mp it takes 3 counts to click next pic.This is my first one plus 8 phone bought after several recommendation from my friends, and this is what I get. How can I get this resolved? why is it 12mp for most features of camera when it is marketed as 48mp main camera.
