    I recently upgraded from a Duo 1 to a Duo 2. Image processing for both the front and rear facing cameras seem to be extremely poor. Photos are overly sharp and any photos taken in dim to slightly bright light have extreme pixel discoloration.

    As a comparison, here's an image from a Galaxy S10 Lite and then the Duo 2. And the Duo 2 image is actually good in comparison to what I usually get. Often, in dim lighting, the edges have a noticeably thick bar of discolored pixels. It's significantly worse than my Duo 1 in a similar situation. I've already tried factory resetting the device. It actually seems slightly better but definitely not good.

    So is everyone having such poor experience with the cameras? Are your pictures overly sharp or discolored in dim lighting situations, or should I look into getting my Duo 2 replaced?

    Frankly speaking, you are expecting much from this there aren’t many positive things to say about Duo 2 camera. The camera hunts for focus a lot, is slow to capture images, and is generally just not very pleasant to use.
    Image quality is a low point, too. Pictures are over-sharpened and flat, low-light images have lots of watercolor noise reduction and little detail. While it’s certainly an upgrade to the complete lack of a proper camera system in the first Duo, the Duo 2’s camera is hardly competitive with phones at its price point or even hundreds of dollars less.
