    Ok, not sure if this is a software problem or hardware, the fact is that when taking a photo in a dark room with the flash, it comes out way too white, as if reflecting light, the process focus with flash and photo capture is too fast, so the flash intensity is not measured in and out very white photos ...

    I'm not sure if this problem arose after the upgrade to 4.4.4 tmo, but I do not remember this happening in android 4.4.2

    Here are some examples:

    This photo was taken with Moto X, same conditions, same distance, and in a completely dark room.

    Same here. Though my surface is reflective which doesn't help. I'll try another pic later.

    Even if the surface is not reflective, for example a picture of my hand, literally goes white.

    Try backing off. Although smartphone cameras have gotten pretty sophisticated, the flash has not. I'm guessing, from the results you've shown, that the flash gives out the same amount of light with each shot but less light is needed as the camera gets closer to the subject. Try the sames shots only from twice the distance as before.

    I was thinking the same thing. Unfortunately the cameras software does not adjust the brightness of the flash depending on the distance of the object. Rather, it blasts the flash at full brightness no matter what.

    Flash photography is never going to look great without at least 3 points of light anyway, but try backing off the subjects and see if that helps.

    At the moment it is the only way to use the flash of the camera without ruining the picture. Take it from a distance of 80cm.
