    All my pictures suck with my new iPhone 4. Am I missing a setting to enable high quality or something?

    Yeah... and the lens is clean and what-not. :(

    PS: Yes, those are completely zoomed out.

    you do realise that, how you are holding your dog is wrong on so many levels, pull its legs out anymore and you will prolly kill it. ffs, that makes me angry

    Either your world is grainy or something is going on with ISO settings and the amount of light getting into the lens.

    Do us a favor and try taking a couple of pics that aren't close-ups, have some natural light, and aren't fully zoomed just as a comparison. More of the dog would be fine :p

    I'd say it's because all of those pictures were taken at ISO 1000. Try getting some better lighting and see if it comes out more clear and make sure nothing is wrong with your phone making it stick to ISO 1000.

    It's the way you hold your camera

    Just don't hold it that way

    this looks like you were taking pics in very dark environment. Normally, cellphone has very poor high iso performance. You probably want to turn on your flash or take some test pics outside the room.

    As a previous user mentioned, you need more light to take such pictures. The more light the camera requires, the higher ISO it will use, and the more grain you will see.

    Stupid idea but did you take the plastic off the back or add a protector that's covering the lens?

    Have you tried taking pictures with another camera in that room? I have a moderately lit room and my pictures are not coming out that grainy so I'm guessing it is pretty dark in there.

    No camera can add more light to a room (without flash) they can only improve ISO performance by having a larger sensor, which you won't get in any cell phone camera.
