    It could be the way you are taking the pictures, could you post some pictures to see some examples.

    Which camera app are you using? The pro cam or the default camera app?

    Buy this camera in Thailand, so maybe little different apps. I have . Nokia Camera (default i think).. and Nokia Smart Cam.. I have not Pro Camera...
    So I use default Nokia Camera.
    But think I find a little solution to the problem. I did not use automatic in everything, and change to "Daylight" and "100 ISO " ... and after that I think I got a little better photos...So to use option automatic over all looks not so useful.
    Maybe someone know how to resize the pictures before sending to Facebook for example...

    Is your phone updated yet?

    Nokia Camera was Procamera and if you do not know how to use the settings yet I would use the default camera for now.

    I don't think those pictures look bad at all. They look great.

    i think its about composition and framing... you need to frame and compose properly...think of the story you wanna send out to the viewer

    The flower picture above i s really good, but there I am using option "close picture. And every picture is nice when using the "close" focus option.
    Maybe something that the camera have problem to find the focus in longer range. But shoot in a very short range he find very good focus.

    I try a new picture. I have focused on the girl - but dont find her really sharp (focused) enough - or any other part of the picture...
    Use Nokia Camera (dont have Pro Camera)

    Nokia Camera is updated Pro Camera...

    the picture is fine... the focus may have been a bit pointing to the feet of the grandma but for me overall the quality of the photo is good. Don't pixel peep too much, just enjoy shooting and playing with the cam. There is so much to learn and time will come you would be able to get outstanding images out of the phone cam :)

    You might be too critical of your talents kiddo.

    I have 10 cameras from 4mp to 16mp and have consistently shot worse pics than you're posting here.
    To me it's all about print quality.
    Full resolution at auto or 400 ISO and above will usually look smeared with a small CMOS while shooting hand held.
    IMO post processing is best for high res\small sensor cameras ... just a fact of digital photographic life.
    It's kind of like shooting with high ISO film at a small aperture setting with short exposure time.

    Few use the full res of a camera when say a 50% processed print is plenty for sharpness.
    To me color and focus on the reduced image size rule.

    Okay, maybe I am to negative here, Its about taking more and more pics....and learning.
    I compare to much with my Canon S95 who almost everytime get very nice pics, without any job att all..

    And I try "Camera 360" lens and got some really good ones.... so as many says, its only about shoot, testing and be patient... Thank you....

    Atta boy!
    Keep going my friend.
    Just remember compose-lighting-focus then pump the photo afterwards if needed.
    The sweetness of digital photography is post processing.
    I know we all want perfection right off the the shutter button ... keep shooting there my good friend it will come.

    I like this pic!
    Good composition makes my eyes sweep across the photo after centering on the subject.
