    Every picture looks terrible. Blurry, horrific fringing, focus issues, over-processing.

    Just absolutely abysmal. I am reading professional reviews and no one brought this up - do some people just have bad phones? Because the camera quality on this is in no way shape or form acceptable for a $1000 flagship in 2021.

    I am coming from the sinking ship that was LG. I guess I played down how good their cameras were because the V40 I am coming from blows this out of the water. Kind of wishing I went with the V60 to ride it out - but I figured that would be a baaaad idea.

    It is known that OnePlus has not good cameras :)

    As somebody who has used Google Pixel phones, iPhones, and Samsungs as well as previous OnePlus phones (7 Pro and 8T) I actually have to disagree. So many improvements have been made to the camera. Shutter speed is reduced, images are clear, portrait mode is great. The only meh thing is the somewhat low resolution of the telephoto camera but it still produces better shots than digital zoom alone.

    I have to agree on this one. I come from the OnePlus 7T Pro and am absolutely disappointed with the camera quality. Noise, blurry... How are all the reviewers happy with this camera? It's unacceptable for a 1000euro smartphone.

    My camera firmware is on 6.2.38 after the latest firmware updates, same as yours.
    What do you mean by boring?
    Post a sample photo.

    The reviewers get free handsets and they wouldn't want to say anything negative otherwise they'll stop getting freebies from manufacturers (that's around 99.9% of tech reviewers). Virtually every review I've read under the official review thread have said nothing remotely negative which is concerning as no product is perfect. A true review only comes from those who have spent their hard earned cash on a handset.

    Mine is the same even with the updates. It's hard for me to justify keeping a $1000 phone with just hope that it will get better.
