Hello,

So I received my all new HTC U11 3 days back ( in India) officially. HTC u11 has world's best rated camera but I am not quite satisfied with the results.

1.) Rear camera is really struggling to capture the photos in low light. I can clearly see the noise.

2.) Front facing camera has no OIS so pictures are blurry and most of the times I noisy photos.

Find the attachments below :

1.) Front facing camera
2 ) rear facing camera

See the noise and level of quality.

hm.. photo #1 has the plant completely out of focus. photo #2 has the pot in focus. you may wanna make sure that the subject is in focus before snapping.

did you change the camera settings to "Touch autoexposure"? The default mode of the camera is "Center-weighted"

Thank you for replying. Let me make the things clear.
The first photo was taken from the selfie camera where I tried to focus on the plant/pot everywhere but it was not focusing anyhow. No matter what it wasn't focusing.

In low light, I can clearly see the noise in the all corners.

The selfie camera doesn't have auto focus everything is in focus ( as long as it is at least 18 inches away). Play around with the settings for the rear camera. HDR auto, HDR, so far all my photos are excellent focal point and background.

Like I said you are too close using the selfie cam, it is meant too be an arm's long away to have everything in focus.

Sir I am not complaining about the focus and all... See the noise... Can't you see the noise in the picture?

Even zoom your spiderman... You will notice the same noise.

Hi. Can you say more here or is there a link to how we can best make this adjustment? I'm not terribly savvy and appreciate the tips. Thx.

Well, in the camera app, pull down the slider with the = icon, swipe to the right to reveal "Settings" which is on the left, tap on that and "Touch autoexposure" should be the first option.

This option is important if you tend to compose your shots with the subject not in the middle (rule of thirds) so tapping on your subject will adjust the exposure and focus according to your subject.

My low light shots are all at over 3000 ISO which leaves quite a bit of visible noise in the picture.

Not liking the camera in poor lighting just yet. Hopefully they will introduce an ISO limiter, or simply fix this in an upcoming update.
