    I just purchased an iPhone 4. It was available for a bargain, $300.

    Now I've seen the pics from an iPhone 4 of my colleagues and they are amazing. Clarity. Depth. Sharpness.

    I've attached the first pic i've taken from my iPhone 4. And I can't help but find with unusual noise / grain layer over the images. Is it just me or should I report to Applecare for a exchange?


    The attachment is in actual size. 1.5mb.

    What exactly am I'm looking at. The pic looks a bit blurry. Try making your focus points before you take a pic.

    Bad lighting and slow shutter speed when handheld will make the pictures more grainy and less sharp than if you'd have better conditions.

    Go outside and snap a few photos in daylight, try leaning your hand against something to minimise the inevitable shaking that will occur when you take the picture. Are the photos still grainy and unsharp?

    Try taking pictures when there's a lot of sunlight.

    From the looks of the pic, there isn't much light so it will be grainy.

    That's a 1/15 sec lowlight, handheld, no flash image. Very typical. Add some more light. You'll see a big difference. :apple:

    You could've gotten a 4S for $300 and it has a much better camera.

    Low light. Looks pretty good for the conditions, actually.

    It's a 3 year old phone and the pic was taken in low light ; what do you expect ?

    I would say its the lighting. My iPhone 5 doesn't do too well in low light.

    Low light conditions generally lead to grainy photos (in my experience) and, if I remember correctly, the iPhone 4 only has a 5MP rear-facing camera, so the photos are inevitably going to be lower quality than most modern smartphones and real cameras.

    This is why I'd rather see a great, lower-MP sensor instead of a huge MP number.

    I rarely need tons of resolution but pictures taken inside are always subpar.

    It's a 3 year old phone and the picture was taken with relatively low light indoors. That's actually one of the more decent shots you'll get in those conditions.
