Thoughts on 6T camera

    NMD2018 , Nov 15, 2018 :
    I purchased the 6T to replace my Pixel 2 XL because I want to be able to sell the phone with a decent price while the phone is still 1 year old.
    Personally, the 6T camera isn't good and a huge downgrade but that is what I expected. I plan to keep the phone anyways because I love the software and performance with a big screen.

    I still notice a bit of the paint effect just like the Oneplus 5 but it isn't so bad.

    But the Pixel and Samsung's are operating in a difference price bracket. Yes OnePlus could pay more for a better camera, but then the price goes up with it. I'd like to see OnePlus stay around the £500 mark.

    Actually, I was being facetious. I think the camera is pretty good, and I believe the images I posted show that!

    One reason your images look bad is that they're backlit. You're getting lens flare from the light behind the phone you're photographing, and it doesn't look like you have any light on the front of your subject. The camera can only do so much my friend.

    Here's two behind the scenes shots from a recent commercial shoot using the back camera with stock app.

    Here's one from the front camera with Portrait mode in stock app.

    Wow those are great photos. Thanks for the feedback. But when I took pictures of my daughter this morning. It wasnt much different. It was outside with sun but it was very dull. It wasn't vibrant like your pictures. I took better photos with 5t

    Hmm...there might be an issue with your phone then. Just out of curiosity, there's no plastic wrap on the phone or covering the lens, right? I can't recall if it shipped with a protective plastic shield over the lenses.

    No. I tried to peel the lens, but nothing. I got mine from the tmobile store.

    Here is another example. You can clearly see one is more vibrant.

    Oh OK. Darn, this is 2nd time exchanging my phone. First one, I had problem with the battery.

    Well thanks for your advice!

    Go to the XDA Developer's website and search for the 6T in the forums. I found a link in there to download the APK. Basically, all you do is install it like any other app.

    I tried that, but the app didn't work. It just closed itself.
