I found out that when I make a screenshot while taking a picture on my Android phone, it produces a better quality picture than actually taking the photo. Is the camera software destroying my pictures? Why?
@chebra You could try another camera app. Something like "Simple Camera" is available both in f-droid and play store and it seems to do minimal manipulation.
@chebra That being said it's probably just the camera preview showing fewer pixels but smoothing it out so it looks high resolution
@rune This already is an alternative app, but I remember the original Android app did the same and also on my previous phone. The screenshot is about half the size (in width) but still looks better even when I upscale it to the same size as the photo. So those artifacts on the photo are quite big areas of many pixels.
