What is the quality of the main camera of the Fairphone 4 now?

Hello Fairphone users!

In some of the reviews on the internet (see below) it’s said that the quality of the images taken with the main camera of the Fairphone 4 aren’t that great. Most reviews however are from the time the Fairphone 4 was launched (September 2021).

Are, in the mean time, the problems with the main camera of the Fairphone 4 solved? Are the pictures better now?

Hi, welcome to the forum :tada:

The camera has indeed improved a lot. Better auto focus, white balance and dark mode. It’s still not an iPhone or Pixel of course. But it definitely got improved.

Hello @UPPERCASE,

That’s great to hear! It will make the Fairphone 4 much more attractive to buy!

In the forum I also read about iodéOS, never heard about it before but seems interesting.

Thanks,

I can at least confirm the FP4 camera is way better than the FP3+ camera. I just made a comparsion last weekend with my FP3+ and the FP4 from my brother.
I don´t know about other phones but the quality of the FP4 cam would be good enough for me (the FP3+ camera could be better).

FP support has said that the FP3 will also receive camera improvements :tada:
