The camera is absolute garbage. It doesn't make sense with the hardware specs. The images look like they were taken with a camera with a tenth of the resolution, then resized to a larger file size.

I had high hopes for the Bokeh feature with the two lenses, but it's just a software effect that doesn't seem to use the different focal distances at all. It's just a blur effect that's applied to the area outside the range of the object you click. You can see this is true if you try the Bokeh effect on a large flat surface with a pattern or writing on it. The bokeh effect blurs out the exact same area regardless of distance.

I have the S2 and the camera is terrible. For a phone that looks and feels great the camera is shocking. I am so disappointed in this phone.

Before the Umidigi S2 I had a Oppo F1 and LeeCo Le 2 Pro and BOTH of these had better cameras.

Seriously, UMIDIGI - I am so disappointed in this device.

HOW CAN I FIX THIS BAD CAMERA?

After this upgrade i saw a big difference! There still is a problem with the camera software which doesen't recognize automatically the ISO it must use.
Anyway using the pro mode will help having better results (except for the image stabilization, it must be improved).

I have made some tests.

This was a photo i took before the upgrade in automatic mode:
https://drive.google.com/open?id ... bRUJn7-rRSePCsiGzxl

After the upgrade always in automatic:
https://drive.google.com/open?id ... Jffq-t31FXOIirYEY7E

and this in Pro mode:
https://drive.google.com/open?id ... CCxS0-nLQssJMsQAnCG

I have compared also this photo with one took with my Iphone 5c:
https://drive.google.com/open?id ... DDUHhiPcqVkj91N28jo

Is going to be acceptable, but improving camera software and image stabilization (i have to take 2-3 photos before getting a good one) is still needed.

Edited by ManuelB at 2017-10-30 19:48 \n\nHi, I've received this morning my Umidigi S2 and I saw the first problem with camera.
In the upper right part of the photos there is a "white comma" error that I think is a cmaera Fault or error.

Anyone can say how to solve problem? Or I should ask for an Exchange?
Same sample photos here:



Thanks!

I played a little with the camera today but I must say that it's the only feature about this phone that I don't like. The camera is really bad compared to my previous phone (Oneplus One).

I don`t agree with you.

Ok for a 150 € device but S2 PRO has the same camera and costs 300 €! They should have put OIS at that costa...do you agree?

I suppose those photo samples (from header) is fake, because it have PNG format, not JPEG.

I would like to know this too. The camera is the only thing I don't like about this phone. And I use the camera a lot normally!!

This Sony cam should be working better then this. I'm hoping for a response by Umidigi, although I don't think they will anytime soon since they're not really into communicating with their customers..
