    Default Horrible Camera

    So I have been trying to use my camera but it is horrible! Only the back camera. All the photos are blurry and even when I try to focus it isn't clear. I think that my G-Nex had a better camera than this phone. Like no photos I take come out good. They all are blurry. Is anyone else having this problem? Did I get a defective device? Should I send it back? Thoughts?

    Without the sense software, the camera is not what it could be.

    Download the sense camera app and try it. I guarantee it takes better photos




    The apk is on that thread.

    From what I have read on XDA many GPe users and those who have converted have no issues with the camera, they do use the Sense Camera app for the low light situations and more post processing. You will also want a different photo gallery since the Sense camera does not care for the GPe gallery app that is included. Beyond that it works very well.

    There shouldn't be any difference with the quality of images between the two devices. I'd suggest cleaning the lens and try again. If I recall, the hardware is the same. Yes, software does a lot to enhance images, but it shouldn't be any obvious quality issues.

    As mentioned earlier you can download and install the Sense camera app apk file and run both camer apps side by side! In fact I have it set ad my default camera on my GE One.

    My camera works fine, but this Sense camera app sounds interesting - I don't see it in Google Play though?

    Its not for download on the google play store, someone ripped the apk for the camera app from the stock Sense rom, you download from XDA forums and sideload installs it. It will work like normal.

    The Sense camera app no longer works on GPe 4.3 just an FYI. HTC has removed the Sense framework required so things are changing. It has been suggested you try Cyanogen Mods camera app.

    To be honest the GPE Camera application works brilliantly for me, while the Sense Camera application is better for photo and video editing. Low-light photos and such will require some manual adjustments by you which can be done on both Sense and GPE camera applications, so there's no real big difference for me.

    I am actually perfectly okay with the stock android camera. I don't need all those bells and whistles Sense provides. My ONLY HUGE GRIPE about the HTC One GPE camera is it does NOT record video in stereo sound like the Sense version is able to do. I was able to use the Sense version camera while I was still on 4.2.2, and it recorded perfectly fine in stereo, but it no longer works on 4.3.

    Hopefully a Sense camera app that works with 4.3 will appear in due course...
