Front Camera is TERRIBLE
So.. I was originally very happy with my purchase, but I just booted up Snapchat to send off a couple selfies from the new tech... And the front-facing camera's picture quality is GOD AWFUL.
It's grainy as ****, and it's got all these weird discolourations to it! Is that just me, or anyone else getting it?
Edit: Just took a couple pictures with both my S4 and Z2 to post here and show them, but it would appear that once you actually TAKE the photo with the Z2, all that awfulness goes away! Snapchat, for some reason, keeps it though. I think Snapchat might have to modify their app for this phone... And I don't see that being likely in the near future.
Here's the break-down. It appears that the built-in camera app greatly messes with the picture the front camera takes, and this might be some kinda weird feature. Anyways, here's two pictures from the Z2, one from the camera app, one from Snapchat, and a picture from my S4 for comparison.
