    When I take the pic, sometimes I get black squares. Mostly in the sky. P30 pro, stock camera.
    Also portrait mode with beauty on puts lines of dots on the skin.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you saving the photos to Internal Storage or the SD card? Can you show us some samples?

    Hi welcome , you try safe mode ? That way eliminate any 3rd party apps causing this .

    Good idea, here are the steps: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/h...p30/safe-mode/

    Do those black square appear immediately after you take the shot, or do they appear some time afterwards?

    Immidiately. Has to be connected to stock camera software. Not using an third party. When zooming in they are bigger, so I guess same number of pixels on sensor gets it.

    Even if you don't think you're using a 3rd party app, it's worth testing in Safe Mode to completely eliminate that possibility. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's either a firmware or hardware problem. Is the phone still under warranty?

    Setting the soften filter to on creates a lot of dots all over the face. The harder the filter, more dots tend to appear. No filter keeps everything OK.

    Can you confirm that you've tried it in Safe Mode? I haven't seen a specific response about that.

    Possible image sensor damage from an intense light source like a laser.

    Have you tried clearing the camera app cache? Have you tried any 3rd party camera apps to see if the problem exists outside the stock camera app?
