    You know that Most people here don't read these threads.
    But it could be another cover up by Carl just like his Analytics thread.
    Camera devolepment/ improvement on the 5 is not much.
    The previous 3/3T had lots of issues where an update broke the camera focus.
    It will most likely be as you say, maybe one or two of the next updates for 5T might have camera improvement change logs

    I think the main cause of the poor photo quality is the fact that there is no OIS.
    Without OIS, any slight twitch, jiggle, or movement will impact the capture of a still image.
    OIS manages to balance your body's minute vibrations just enough to allow for better focus on an image.
    This is why the OP5t will never be able to compete with the Pixel's photo quality.
    This hardware problem cannot be (fixed) in software, unfortunately.

    Needless to say, I too, am disappointed with the photo quality ... in fact, it was the first thing I noticed.
    I upgraded from an LG G4, and the OP5t photos are not anywhere as good as what the LG could produce.
    In a nutshell LGG4 retained fine detail, whereas OP5t gave you fuzzy detail.

    I am on the fence about what I will do with this phone.
    I (want) to love it, but the photo capabilities are not up to par with the other high performance elements of the phone.

    My fingers are crossed that OP hires some true industry experts to at least make the software do absolutely everything it can to squeeze out as much quality as possible from the lens and sensor the phone is stuck with.

    The display is punchy and makes everything pop. A great device overall. I am ready to wait for the update..

    There must be a camera update. To be a flagship, it does need that update. I believe that it is only a software issue and will be solved promptly

    How did no one notice these issues while testing? Why wait for consumers to tell you there's a problem.

    Well I am returning mine in 10 days.
    If that update does not come in time, and if it does not actually fix the issue, I will be sad to say goodbye to it.

    If you are not happy just return it. If you wait you will not be able to return it and be stuck with an amazing phone that takes potato pictures.
    If they fix the issue then repurchase the phone and be happy. As I am doing.
    This will encourage them to do something about it as you will have your money back and they will have a phone with a useless camera (or camera software) sat in their warehouse. Simple.
