I understand your problem, but this is the 2.2MP front camera we are talking about, its not right to expect clear n perfect selfies especially when capturing indoors! I'm really happy about the front cam as it produces really acceptable photos! Outdoors, it is much better! I agree that there is some discolouration and grains but that is expected!!
Using the word terrible is terrible!!!

Same problem on snapchat
I used the front cam to take some selfies. Seemed okay once the pictures were processed. But in Snapchat the selfies turn out grainy only. Any solution? I

Can I ask you though if that picture youve taken should have shown the structures with straight lines as straight lines, and not as crooked as they are?
That is my biggest gripe, the truly awful lens distortion.

Yes that is indeed the case!! However, these distortions are not visible when I take selfies outside, even in waterfall!! :P
So I guess, when not even a single Human is 100% correct, how a gadget can be! Overall, front cam takes a shot which pleases my eye, and thats all I want from a inferior sensor.
