    4.5 has a really bad camera

    Advertisement



    Ok so i recently updates my TMO 8100 with the vodafone 4.5 OS.

    Everything works great, nice to see the little changes it has made.

    My complaint is that my camera has gotten worse. During any daylight, indoor or outdoor the camera is over exposed, almost all white and if i have no lighting or at night, its just pitch black when before i used to be able to capture images even with dark lighting.

    I have played with the settings but doesnt do anything.

    Anyone have similar issues that can help?

    Oh and before to say its not beta... Yes it is! Vodafone but a link to beta, lord knows why. I have 4.5 on my 8300 and its still really screwy. My Video camara looks great but the regular camera looks like crap. Also I have experienced long lag times and dropped calls. I get text msgs days after they are sent, and I have sent txt's that have disappeared never reaching their intended target. Expect thing like this with beta OS's.

    Yes, when a carrier decides to use the "beta" as their OS it becomes offical

    I recommend using 4.5.0.18. This "Official Release" .37 is garbage. It's buggy and the camera is virtually inoperable. OS .42 is very stable but hasn't addressed the camera issue so I went back to .18. The OS is stable and the camera works just fine. Part of the problem with 4.5 is that you have to save (backup) all of your files on the desktop and then format your MicroSD card.

    Same here I'm hesitant to upgrade and I already think the 8100 has a horrible camera. Having it worse would force me to get another phone. I tend to take lots of pics. So ...18 huh? Anybody else using it? How well does the video record work?

    Sorry Haider, I cannot as it is still a "beta" OS and that would be against policy.

    it cant be the offical 4.5 tmo doesnt have 4.5 out. and lasttime i looked 4.5 was still in beta all around.
    and is .18 has the video option then its not ment for the 8100. 8100 isnt capable of using video recording.

    THIS IS FOR EVERYONE NEW TO UPGRADING.

    There is a LOT of trouble shooting that goes with a new OS.
    BEWARE!!!!!
