OV8858 is really a good sensor and can take pictures much better, just see other smartphone's photo with the same sensor ;) . It's 8mpx, but 13mpx interpolated. noise is not for the resolution, you can easily test it by changing resolution on camera app to 8mpx, result about noise is same.

good point, interpolation would just make the image softer if anything.

That's what I said in my review... No matter how "bad" people say the camera is, it's still better than my iPad mini Still, if there's ways to improve it we should push for it. If there isn't, it'd be great if Umi could tell us so we could stop asking for them to do the impossible.

By the all rounded chassis, it can be any reflowable camera module. Impossible to say.
Nevertheless the libcameracustom.so in /system/lib/ is linked to the ov8858mipiraw.

Steven, bear with me, your image does not show as many artifacts as mine.. if you look at it on 25% it's (almost) OK! [it still seems ISO-3200]
but! on 4k monitor is like deep dream and if you do print it on paper with something in the range of the PIXMA Pro-100 it's awful - I know we are in a range way lower, altho, connectivity ( both's wifi and phone signal ) along the PHOTO shall be the top priority in the current smarthphone arena.
Allow me the joke.. it's not just a photo ! : D

Already I'm really shure: NOT the camera is horrible, only the stock camera software. I tried the stock software in all options (for example 8MP, 13MP, ISO 100...), but the picture is really really grainy, you know that. The stock camera software is wrong ab ovo, cause of stupid compression-noisereduction algorythm. But see mdav88's advice about the A Better Camera app, for solving the problem. My advice for all of you: use an other camera software, which CAN OVERRIDE the stock camera software algorythms. For example the A Better Camera app.
I use A Better Camera with high quality options (JPEG 100%, ISO100...), and i shoot really really normal pictures!!! The camera module is a good camera module as a hardware!!! - for a mobile phone, of course, not a professional camera (and you know, this is a 8MP sensor, the 13MP only extrapolated).
So, don't use the stock camera software, but use other camera app, which can override the stock app algorythms, and you live happily untilk you die.
Because this hardware is a 8MP camera sensor, I think, the 8MP pictures are better than the 13MP pictures. But with a normal camera software, the extrapolated 13MP is normal, too - as a good quality mobile phone camera.
That's also important: with the external camera software also DO NOT USE auto ISO, allways use ISO100 (maybe ISO200 only if you really must), and save the ISO100 options, that the app couldn't go back to the auto ISO!!! You see, the ISO100 doesn't help with the stock camera app, and the auto ISO doesn't help with the external camera app. Only helps the ISO100 (if must ISO200) with a suchlike external camera app, which can override the stock camera software algorythms. If you do well everything, you can take really normal pictures with the eMAX, independently the UMI Android version.
