    Still no news. Most shops here are closed due to lockdown, my favorite repair shop included. Hopefully next week they will be allowed to open again.

    I repaired a cracked screen on my son's friends Tab A Samsung tablet last week. (Easy repair) Her tablet was/is producing hazed, unclear images as well from the main sensor. In the process of having the back of the device removed I snapped a couple photos and they were clear. In her situation it was/is not the actual camera module itself but the camera lens cover (scratched to heck) embedded into the rear cover of the tablet. I am now looking for a new rear cover or simply that protective lens cover that embeds into the rear cover.

    Even if this is off topic: I totally agree, the main camera of the Priv is much better than the camera of the K1 - the K1 camera is just acceptable for a good snapshot.

    End of off topic :-)

    I've never really had any complaints w/ main or front KEYᵒⁿᵉ cams, tho I've noticed that it's possible to get quite a difference depending on exactly where the focus is. I took a couple pics in our living room trying to have it focus on our moving toddler, but the 2 shots looked to me to have come from different devices.

    Disagree completely. The Priv camera was average at best. The K1 camera isn't fantastic but it's very good.

    I finally had the new camera module fitted to my Keyone today. The difference is hard to describe!! I'll try to upload a couple of photos tomorrow to demonstrate this.

    Hopefully that's a good thing! Curious how the install process itself went. We got our replacement modules recently and i'm having a doozy of a time trying to remove the top housing from the phone.

    I didn't do it myself. My favorite repair shop opened up again, and they did the work. Didn't take more than 15-20 minutes.

    The repair seems to have been a success! Still not as good as the S7 Edge camera but a marked improvement over the faulty camera module I took out of my Keyone. Thanks, everyone! I'll test outdoors soon too. Back to the KeyOne -- LOVE it, apart from the rear camera-img_20210404_1831516.jpg

    That so? Wow...that hasn't been my experience at all. Do you mean in terms of specs? I thought the Priv was the nicest rear camera.

    But I'll try whatnow's suggestion. Hopefully it's just dirty and I can clean it out.
    Yes. Especially if the image is blurry. Pop the cover off and clean it with a Q-tip.

    Lovely shots!

    Do you have any indoors? I haven't really put it through the paces yet and it is pretty foggy/overcast where I am, plus of course above is an indoor shot. I'll try more outdoor shots when we actually get a clear day in NL, but the indoor shot, while still a bit grainy, is a marked improvement over the original set I posted at the beginning of the thread.

    Thanks! Quite vibrant. I do see that night mode often kicks in when I'm inside and it's been quite overcast lately. By July, we should have a sunny day or two with more natural light coming inside. If something's not clear then, I'll know the replacement module is also faulty or needs a cleaning or something (though I was careful to not touch the lens at all when I installed it.) Thanks for sharing these!
