Moto Z Play Rear Camera

2016-10-27, 17:29 PM

So how is the camera??? How does it compare to other smart phone cameras folks have owned??? I currently have a Droid Turbo 2 and I am UNDERWHELMED by the camera on the DT2.  

 

I have no desire to purchase a Z Play and an aftermarket camera module.

 

The Z Play for several reasons would be the only Z model that I interested in even though I understand the other Z models have better rated cameras.

It's kind of a subjective question. How about outlining what you didn't like (and liked) about the DT2 -- maybe we could get a sense of what's important to you.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

The bad thing is the camera's glass scratches easily when exposed outside the body without the Moto Style Shell can help, after a few weeks my photos and videos are weighed down by this problem.

My issue is the default Motorola app can't give as good a picture as third party apps like better camera. Especially low light pictures. It's the same camera, just the Motorola app is very poor at getting the best from it on the Z play unlike our G4 play which takes much better pictures - even in low light! 

 

It's also much slower taking pictures than Google's nexus camera app. 

 

It'd be great if Motorola/Lenovo could address this.

Hi, 

Problem alert. The Moto Z camera is really below standards.
It can not focus. The colours are below par.
You see perfect before taking the pictue and once you click only dissappointment follows.

I introduced the MOTO Z , togehter with using laptops within large multinational, following the iphone (cost saving).

My marketers and personal life is not captured as was the basic 5 years ago. 
Will get my IT department to get the contract guys in but please come on. Is there a software fix?
This will otherwise generate a lot of noise. Also freezes often, extremely slow in starting up (missing hte moment).


All in all unacceptable and not as promised.

Hi Martin999999999,

 

Thanks for sharing. I tried to check my Z Play rear camera, I don't think I have the same issue. I set the pixels to its maximum and the shots I took were just fine. Can you provide us a sample picture? I would love to compare it with mine. Thanks.

 

Best regards,
Rich
