Hi all,

Me again. I made the switch from my Pixel 2 XL and for the most part, I'm in love. The camera, however, is leaving a lot to be desired. Colors are oversaturated and blown out, details are blurry or too smooth (my cat just looks like a lump of jelly), and the selfie camera, in video mode, did the attached while at a restaurant with a blue neon behind the bar (attached are screenshots).

What settings need to be changed? The camera hardware is obviously superior on this phone as compared to the P2XL but I just can't get a handle on how to make things look right.

Thanks!

As for the frontal camera, I never use it, so I wouldn' t know, but, for the main camera, I avoid using the "beauty" setting, and, the scene optimizer sometimes yields good results, sometimes not, apart from that, overall, the pictures are almost always excellent

Yeah, the weird lighting glitches are independent of Beauty Mode and Scene Optimizer, which I leave off. I've also turned off HDR, which seems to have helped a bit. The photos in daylight are nice, but as soon as it starts getting darker I lose all detail, with or without any of those settings turned on.
