Default Xperia Ion very bad camera quality

Hi... Just bought xperia Ion (no LTE) and one of the main reason I selected it is for the camera resolution.... but with big surprise I'm just noticing that pictures are very bad... lot of noise!
Additionally the camera focus is extremely slow!.... Did anyone experience the same?... I'm on last official firmware. Maybe some mod is available.....
Any help is really appreciated....

You can install Lovins mod. He port Xperia V camera with additional tweaks. I am using it on my SXS, focus and photo quality is much better than stock(.55)

Lol? Sony made the best camera in 2012. Stop challenging them and sell Sony phone if you don't like it.

Believe me....I had Xperia Arc and photos were much better...I also have Nokia N8 and pictures are just amazing! I like Xperia ION, but unless my camera has hw issues, the photos are simply very low level ones!...What is really disappointing me (along with the Jpeg noise) is the extremely slow focus during camera recording as well...also not available the touch focus!.....Anyway I m going to try the mod you suggested.....

Just quick updating: I installed the camera mod and did some tests. In outdoor light condition autofocus is very quick and pictures are great! Indoor light condition (morning not night), camera focus seems slightly more responsive if physical picture button is used, but autofocus becomes very slow and 30% of the pictures are out of focus. I will continue in playing with setting but I have doubt I could get good behavior in indoor condition!...Anyway, reading in the network, the very slow focus problem is well known issue! (((
