Hello Fairphone community !
After 4,5 years with my FP2, I decided to change it for a FP3. Since yesterday I am playing around with this new phone and noticed following phenomenon : photos taken directly within Whatsapp do not focus and are blurry, whereas photos taken with OpenCamera are sharp.
I shot several photos within Whatsapp which appeared sharp on the screen (before taking the picture, but with the phone steady) but blurry once shot, as if the focus had been lost while shooting the photo.
Having read the different reviews about the FP3 and especially its camera, I was quite worried. Therefore I tried the same photos with OpenCamera, and these appear sharp (see photos at the end of the post).
Did anybody experienced the same issue ? Is there a workaround to force Whatsapp use Opencamera settings for instance, or anything to calibrate ?
I know the obvious solution is to shot all the photos with OpenCamera, then send them via Whatsapp, but I am here more wondering why this phenomenon appears.
Sample photos :
first the one taken with Whatsapp (focus on the shoe) :
then the one taken with OpenCamera (focus on the shoe) :

Thanks for your thoughts on my topic
