    It is not telephoto, not b&w, doesn't seem to be used for HDR, so what is it for?

    Technical reason is for bokeh effect only

    Real reason just to brag they have dual cameras as everyone else in 2018

    So we have a 20mp camera to impose a blur around the subject of portrait-mode photos? That sounds like a software feature (like the Pixel 2), not a hardware feature. It also seems like a very low-value feature for the added cost and complexity of adding a second camera.

    Surely OnePlus can do more with it.

    Like maybe stitch the 16+20mp photos together for ultra-high-def images or doubling the FPS of slow-motion video.

    I'm facing the same issue after 2-3 days of using. No dust resistance I'm experiencing.

    If purchased online go for replacement, if from store go to service center

    secondary camera is actually a waste of hardware....It could be better if it was telephoto or wide angle...

    By the way.... according to them it has Intelligent Pixel Technology that compresses 4 Pixel into 1 giving net resultant image of 20/4=5 MP ! [e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    It is only used in Depth effect now....

    They say that it is used for enhancing the pic taken by Primary camera but believe me....it never happens....I tried taking many shots with secondary camera covered...........
    in light and low light....100% same pic comes Everytime....[e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    You can dial *#*#1597#*#* in dialer and camera app will open....Double tap twice ....Camera 2 i.e. Secondary camera will open....Then you can take pics from secondary camera only...You can take HDR and 1080p Video also.....but the pic will be of not much use.....Check in Google photos ...it shows 5MP! [e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    So....It's actually a waste of Sony 20MP or I would say 5 MP camera .....[e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    THE ACTUAL PROBLEM IS THAT ONEPLUS DIDN'T ADD SECONDARY CAMERA IN API2 ....
    so it's used for depth sensing only!
