The OnePlus 6 is a top specified phone, but its cameras have never been its highlight. With the OnePlus 6 can OnePlus have something to shout about.
Video. My first impressions of using the camera for video were extremely disappointing. The electronic video stabilisation would not work and the footage looked wobbly as hell. If you encounter this, just turn the phone off and on again. This was the fix required. Now video looks excellent and is super stabilised.
With photos, the camera was having trouble on and off with focusing. At this point, I was ready to return the phone. However, I had managed a few reasonable shots as below.
Since my first impression of using the phone for video and photos, a new firmware update landed, oxygen os 5.1.6. Apart from adding new functionality, the camera quality and camera focusing was vastly improved. So below are a few shots using the new firmware.
With difficult light due to the overcast and misty conditions, the OnePlus 6 was performing much better than expected.
With the dog shots, they were running, so good job by the phone to freeze the shots.
So following this firmware update, the camera is performing well. It will be interesting to see just how much more OnePlus can improve this phone!
