Hi, bought the phone 2 days ago, because it's not with 888, it's not with curved display and has a ultra wide camera with AF and macro capabilities with raw support.
To my surprise, the quality of the raw file from the ultra wide is worse than from the periscope - there are some strange bright dots when you zoom in to 100%, which lead to overall bad quality of the ready image. I guess they are the phase focus pixels, but they shouldn't be visible without any heavy editing.
So, is it just me, or the problem is global, so I know how to proceed with this? I'm leaving a crop depicting the problem.

I don't see it mentioned anywhere but as you have the phone you should know it better than me! ;)

I tried the latest bsg, but removed it, cause the results weren't satisfactory or better than using the stock app as a real camera.

The battle is legendary. Still no success defeating the defect. If it is a demozaicing problem, Motorola should fix it.

THanks for the reply. I wonder how happy you are overall with the cameras? I've found that the front facing one is quite dark and has WB issues. In general the photos coming out of the stock camera seem riddled with artifacts and oversharpened.

I don't even bother shooting in jpg, this is Motorola and they suck in camera performance and resolution logic.
But, I shoot raw, which is possible even with the selfie cam, and after a minute of editing I get sharp and impressive images, and that's why I bought it - the sensors itself are quite capable. If I find a solution to the problem with the ultrawide, the phone is a keeper...

Answered already here. Jpg from phones and actual cameras suck. The raw from gcam is also worse than using the phone as a real camera. Here's an example, learn photography if you expect miracles from a tiny sensor...

Hasli's LMC Google camera mod seems to be working better with the wide angle cam (no artifacts)

    Learn to make your own jpg and you'll be able to see the dirt in your wrinkles on the selfies.

    I've try this mod.It still has white dots on the highlight area by ultra wide angle.
