Two weeks ago, we posted an article on how to maximize your Android phone’s image quality.
We also pointed out the importance of not downloading or installing any other apps while your phone is running Android.
But now that we’ve seen all of that, we’re still not entirely convinced.
The latest information we’ve received from Google confirms what we already suspected, that the Pixel smartphone has a problem with the quality of its photos.
A number of Android phones have been receiving Android updates that introduce new apps that can take advantage of new camera technologies and improve the quality.
But a new bug has been discovered that affects the Google Pixel smartphones.
We’ve confirmed that the bug affects the Pixel phones running the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, as well as older phones running Android 8.0.2.
When the bug occurs, the Pixel smartphones lose some of their ability to display and capture images when the phone is locked, and the camera shutter button cannot be used to shoot images.
As a result, the image quality is degraded.
When we tried to download and install the latest Pixel software update to fix the bug, we were unable to get anything.
But the latest Android software also has a bug that allows users to upload images of the phone, which can make the Pixel phone appear to be a little better quality.
If you’re running an older Pixel phone, you can try these steps to fix it.
