    There's need to upgrade the Oneplus 6 camera app to bring out best in it.

    same goes for this, the camera quality are miles apart and an upgrade will help rectify this even if it means adopting the GCam app for the full potentials of the Oneplus 6 cameras

    To make a comparison between the cameras, you must take snapshots in the same place and with the same lighting conditions

    Yes, this is the way to do comparisons. I can't understand @mojoyoyo77 point. And yes, camera is to upgrade.
    This is a flagship not a poco f1 (that indeed shoots way better than OP6 and costs one HALF).

    For a better night sight go on apkmirror and download camera 3.0.13, but again it's nothing compared to google camera porting done by many developers (just search for GCAM ONEPLUS 6, to get the link to the right article on XDA forums).

    I'm not saying that there is no problem, or that GCam is not better for some things. The lighting conditions may seem similar, but to make a precise comparison you have to make the same photo in the same conditions. You do not have to be an expert to understand this.

    ps: if you search in this forum and on XDA you may find that I'm actually more expert that what you think.

    As far as I can see its a matter of preference, not one picture is better than the other.

    That said, you have the ability to change the brightness in each picture by simply pressing on the point in the picture that you want to stand out, so if you click in the shadow area the picture will magically brighten up. Likewise if you click on a bright area the rest of the picture darkens.

    If thats still not enough there is a brightness slider next to the focus point.

    At the end of the day its about learning to use the tools you've been given. I've been taking pictures for longer than most people on this forum have been living. The first thing to do with a new camera is to get to know exactly what it is capable of, and what its not. Re-take shots you've had problems with in the past when you get a new camera, or when there's an upgrade to the software (OP6 camera has been around less that 8 months, and the app is updated every couple of months).

    The Gcam pics are brighter but not an inch better...

    First hint: clean the lens to get rid of those light streaks...

    Second hint: Use a tripod, Set ISO to 100 in Pro-Mode and play around with shutter speed starting from 1 second up to maybe 5 seconds and look what you get...

    This was shot with OP3T, OnePlus camera app, ISO 100, 5 seconds exposure, unedited just compressed jpg...

    And I believe the OP6 can do better...
