    Take a video with your X and compared to a video taken on the XS

    Zoom into the video and you will see a lot of artifacts distortions and grain in the image and also dull colors and it isn’t as clear either as the X is :mad:
    Is this a software problem ? Check it out.
    It’s a big annoying problem and I bought the 512GB Version because I planned on using it as a camera and now I am extremely upset about it. My X was very good and I was expecting the XS Max to been spectacular.
    Green scene is from 4K video and the one behind the car is a picture taken.

    And this is a still from a video that I took. If you zoom into it you can tell everything that is wrong. My X and 7 didn’t do that. First iPhone that ever did such thing not even my iPhone 4 or 5 did it either.

    Not sure if you have checked this, but when my XS Max arrived it had defaulted to 1080p 30fps. I too was shocked at the video at first but then fished around in settings to double check.

    Very weird... not sure if you are nearby one but possibly go to a location that has the Xs on display (ideally an apple store) and test out the camera to see if maybe it's just your device?

    These photos look like they were taken from a camera of the 70's.

    Looks to me like the OP was too far away from the subject matter.

    Even videos that I focus a close up object the same things happen even if I take a picture of my hands as well. Every video and picture the same problem happens and I saw it in someone’s else picture too when I zoom into the details
    I think everyone should investigate their pictures and see if the same thing is happening to theirs :( this is not fair at all my X never done that.

    iPhones use very aggressive noise reduction and image sharpening in photos and videos, and the X is no exception. You may think it didn't do it, but it definitely did.

    Just double click on the sample images to view them full size...the less light that's available, the more watercolory/smeary/etc the image will be. You usually can't notice if youre looking at images or videos on the phone screen, but if you view on a computer at full size, it's pretty noticeable.
