Nexus 6P camera - Photo quality is bad

CodyClassB 58 49 August 17, 2016 at 05:01 PM
I got the phone from B&H . Can you please see the photos below (taken by this phone). Is something wrong with my phone or this is normal? I expect a 400 dollar camera to take much better pictures than this. The sample photos in various online reviews look GREAT, but my photos look bad. The room has enough light. Thanks .

I have the same phone, and oddly the same kitchen playset in my house, and I don't have the blur issues.

Do you still have this issue when you touch an object on the screen and manually focus the image?

Clean the lens? Remove peel and stick plastic protector over lens if applicable?

Tap to focus?

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

It is new ouf of the box . Yes, the len is clean and there are no plastic wrap. I reset the phone a few times and clear the camera cache but it didn't solve the problem. thanks both for your replies.

What about outside in the bright sunlight? If still no improvement I would think about exchanging it.

That Huawei has one of the better cameras out there. If you've tried everything to correct it, it's definitely a defective unit.

The I in iphone = inferior, so you do have the better phone.

Not sure op, but I'll do some digging.

Did you use flash?

My suggestion for you---
1. Always use the HDR+ mode when shooting with the rear camera in order to get the best quality images. If you have dynamic subjects, however, it's better to shoot in auto mode as HDR+ mode has a slight delay that might result in blur.
2. Use the tap-to-focus and set exposure features in the Google camera app. You'll want to do this for most shots, especially in darker scenes, or scenes with less than perfect lighting.
Hope this may help you.
