    Also buddy check the battery section, they have written "minutesss and hoursss".
    This is very unprofessional from OnePlus in terms of software updates, from the moment i bought this device i have been regretting it. I knew as soon as they launced the 8 series, but i tried to give them one more chance, but not anymore.
    Beleive me they haven't even updated the freaking ancient camera even 1 time.
    Now for me equation is pretty clear
    Android- Samsung
    Ios- Iphone

    I mean the camera quality is pretty good imo excluding the super macro so there really is no need for an update. What did you also mean by the minutesss and hoursss, were you referring to this mins and hrs

    Also i feel OnePlus 8 doesn't feel even mid-flagship in terms of camera performance for the price it was bought. Outdoor it takes good pics but when it comes to indoors, you can't just take any photos. So blurry and the white balance is off all time

    I see, you have a point

    @LancerOfRed ...

    ... might be I can help you a little bit to improve your macro experience :)

    First let me explain the differences between the pro and non pro variants, as they follow a totally different way for macros (it's similar for 8/9 Series).

    8pro uses the UW-48MP-lense for Macromode, due to physics it's quite smart and easy to get close objects into focus with a Ultrawide Angle Lense... 8(T) uses a dedicated Macro lens with 2MP(5MP).

    8pro is using a "Laser" AF with the UW lense, so with the macromode... non pro uses a "Phase Contrast" AF with the dedicated macro lense.

    For better understanding, start your camera and go close to an dark surface in a dark room/corner and you will recognize a red/pinkish dot with your 8pro...
    ... this is the Laser, this is the area where the focus will work properly and as intended... keep this in mind when you go close to an object for macro, the wanted part has to be in that spot, respectively in the same plane to be in focus.

    8(T) non pro needs a lot of light to get great results... great results are no mystery 😉

    Ahhhhh I see, that makes a whole lot of sense. Thanks for taking your time to inform me on how to use it

    it's there for sure, depending on the surrounding more or less obvious and depending on the device and the distance at a different spot, these Screenshots are from 9pro (looking at the pictures you will never see the laser dot, it's camera app screen only) ...

    ... if you really don't recognize it on the screen you might be out of visible range/angle or it's simply too bright ... definitely it's not a proof of malfunction, reason for a warranty claim 😉 if you don't recognize it on first sight 😉

    Haha :D no worries, I don't have the intention for a warranty claim. I tried it yesterday and then I saw it even though it was barely visible.
