Noisy / Overcompensated pictures with camera?

Hi all

I just bought an LG G2 this weekend and absolutely love it. The one area I do have some concern on is the camera though. It struggles badly with movement which i was surprised by given the OIS,

The other issue i have been having with the camera is the front facing camera produces images heavily overprocessed so that my skin looks like its practically artificial and this is without any image effects. It is a 2.1 MP front camera so I was expected stronger clarity than what is onboard.

Finally, and most importantly, the rear facing camera seems to have pretty heavy noise correction and still also experiences a lot of noise in low light. I have noticed that a lot of sample images posted online also seem to hint towards this but in my handset its pretty severe. Zooming in on any details i take shows heavy "smudgy" correction on lines etc. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have just come from an Xperia T camera which took far superior pictures to the LG G2

I immediately replaced the stock camera with XCam LG. An additional settings app is in the play store, where you can find the link to the actual camera app on xda. (for stock phones only)
The camera is free, but the settings app is worth it for the noise reduction, and audio noise gate.

Also, some comments here where I found mention of the app
