Very veru very Bad Camera. Not even a valuable resale...


  • The main lens is excellent, the macro camera is quite nice and the ultrawide is mediocre.

    Learn how to use a camera and you'll have a good camera, have no clue how to use it, you'll have a bad camera.

  • Bad camera? I Love it !!!! I have ofc used lightroom to fix brightness

  • Top pic is using stock camera and bottom pic is gcam. Both using main lense and no night mode on. I have taken hundreds of pics and in general colours, contrast and white balance are better with gcam. Although gcam has its quirks and is not as reliable as I would like.

    Use gcam if you're not happy with stock camera app. In my experience the stock camera produces decent pictures 6 out of 10 times. Whereas, gcam seems to be more like 8/10. The camera is not bad. You can always get decent pics but it may take you a few attempts.

    Of course, your idea of what a decent pic is may be very different to mine. I've been comparing it to Pixel phones and iPhone 11. It has a decent sensor sans OIS, that is let down by software. It can produce bright and vibrant pics in good lighting conditions.

    The camera is not the focus of this phone. I like lots of things about this phone but I also like being outdoors and taking pictures. I may sell the ROG phone in the future if I miss my Pixel. But for now gcam fills the gap (mostly).
