    So after having the V20 since a day or two before official launch date, I just realized that the settings for the front facing "selfie" camera was set to 3.7 megapixels. I had always wondered why it looked so bleh.. I had thought after having the htc one m7 with the 4mp main shooter that that even looked better. So anyone looking for better quality pics for selfies or what not, check those settings.

    Easy way to tell is if selfie is in 16:9 it at 3.7

    Yup, full resolution changes the frame.

    Also by default the rear camera was set to 12MP. Good tip on increasing photo quality! Love the extra wide angle front selfie!

    I'd check the wide angle cameras settings as well. Not sure if it was dumbed down either.

    It's pretty easy to. When you get a phone, you assume that the camera would be set to the best quality/highest resolution but it actually isn't the case for most Android phones I've come across. Both my s6 and note 5 cameras were set to 12 mp from the factory even though they both had 16 mp shooters though I think the note 7 was the only one I've had that was stock at full resolution.

    There's been a few conversations on this forum about this, but it's definitely a good reminder.
