Hi everyone,

So, I have been having issues with the camera on my Nexus. It seems the phone just won't take well-lit pictures indoors. They come out decent but you can definitely see the pixels if there isn't PERFECT lighting. Now, I know this is something that others have complained about so it's not just my phone or shooting style. However, I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to fix this problem. Mess with the white balance? Try taking with an app like "Retro Camera"? I'm hoping Instagram will make my photos look better, but I'm not holding my breath...

Nexus camera itself provide you enough screens to capture snaps in different feel. Still if you are willing to use some app, give a try to camera 360 Ultimate.

I don't have a Nexus in front of me to check, but you need to make some manual changes to your camera settings to fix ''noise'' in a low-light photograph. If you bump up the ISO setting you'll make the sensor more sensitive to light, but you'll also get noise or ''grain'' in the picture. If you can keep the camera very stable, say on a table or tripod, try using a much slower shutter speed and keep the ISO to a minimum. Not even sure if ytou can control these on that device but it's standard digital camera rules!
