    I legit love my OnePlus 7Pro so much. The phone is absolutely amazing in everyway except for one. The Portrait mode on this phone is absolutely Horrendous! Getting the Depth Effect to actually activate is a god damn Headache. I wish there was an update to address this like for the phone to tell you to move further away, or move closer in. I hate trying to play the guessing game of will it activate or not. I had a Pixel 3 before this and I could legit just snap the damn photo and move on with my life. This is the only thing I would love to be fixed in a software update.

    The cameras of OnePlus smartphones are absolutely horrible compared to brands like Huawei or Xiaomi. I'm not talking about the cameras themselves, but the software that goes with it. For example, Huawei's camera app contains a LOT more options (personally, I love how you can modify the amount of blur in photos, also light painting was so beautiful back when I had a Huawei P20 Pro). Also, the portrait mode is just a lot of pain to use, considering how difficult it is to trigger that good old green text box which tells you that the depth effect is available. I think that OnePlus is not taking cameras seriously in their smartphones, this is why I was so SHOCKED when I switched from my old Huawei P20 Pro to my OnePlus 7 Pro.

    Are you shooting portraits of people or try to shoot just about anything in "Portrait mode"...?

    Personally, both. When I try to shoot people, it's okay, even though sometimes it's a bit glitchy. But when I want to shoot an object, it's a true nightmare ! I wasn't struggling that much with the phone I had before, which directly had a bokeh mode. So OnePlus should add a bokeh mode too in the camera app ! It's able to detect depth in portrait mode, so it would technically work with a bokeh mode.

    Okay...
    Since it's a portrait mode there's a couple of things to look out for when not shooting portraits...

    Make sure the front and outer edge is not more than about 20-30cm apart...

    Secondly the background shouldn't have a lot of details...
    Like in this one...

    If you look closely there's a lot of background that the software can't seperate...

    Try to get an background that's mostly flat like here and further away from the main subject...

    It'll work better...

    Hope that helps until you get the Bokeh-Mode... ;)

    This one was shot with a "real" Camera...
    Fuji HX-R 20 a couple of years ago...

    Depending on the background it's perfectly normal that you get bright spots like that...
    And sometimes as sharp and uniform as your example...

    Keep in mind that the portrait-mode is a processed simulation not real depth of field effect... ;)

    Indeed, bright spots vs horrible/visible white spots, see my picture again or see this one..

    well.. as I said...

    it's perfectly normal...

    It's a phone with tiny lenses not some DSLR with big optics...
    it's artificial...
    And depending on the situation it'll look just the same on a real camera...

    I'm sure I have an example...
    Just not on the phone right now to show you...

    The background will blur in situations like these even without portrait mode...
    Just not that much... ;)

    Oh I somehow missed that reply...
    Sorry...
    I'm must say in these examples the OP5 does the best job and the iPhone the worst...
    Edge detection of the LED table light is totally off... But I kinda like the blurred Christmas tree... :)

    @bouncer, so if op5 is able to provide the best portrait pics, how is that possible that newer and more sophisticated op7 pro camera is taking such terrible portrait pics...this is not accaptable at all..
