    Everytime when I pressed the screen/button to take a picture, the sharpness was perfect for like 0.2 second, but then the finished picture was always a little blurred before hiding away and the final photo in camera roll was as blur as that moment.

    Just want to check with your guys if it is an universal problem you also noticed or simply bad lenses on individual cellphone?

    Mine is similar - it focuses perfectly before slightly unfocusing and then taking the photo

    I read somewhere has stated that the picture right after taking the photo and just before hiding out isn't the real picture and just a fake procedure to do the animation.
    Also, view your picture on PC or download the HD Photo viewer to check if your camera's really having sharpness issue or just the crappy "reduce-quality-4-performance" of WP's picture hub feature.

    The camera is soft in good light. For sharp pictures, HTC one, Samsung S4 or iphone 5 is the way to go.

    The final photo is not as good as what I noticed for that short moment.

    If we can see a picture with perfect sharpness before it is finally saved on the phone, why shouldn't MSFT change the processing procedure and let us have the "perfect one" which is obviously achievable but simply passed over?

    I don't think so :)

    I know, I got confuse about that perfect moment of photos too. But then I realize that all the photos in my phone and be viewed in my phone didn't serve the camera right ^^ on PC or view with HD Photo Viewer, in the other hand, is another level of details.

    I do not notice any difference in my phone. But after I uploaded the pictures to PC, I found it it not as sharp as I have seen on my phone. Anyone feel the same?

    That happens to me.

    Especially with the default camera app and 3rd party apps like Camera360.

    It looks good on the screen and even after you press the button and take it but then when you go back and view it, it doesn't look anywhere as good as it did prior.
