    Hey Insiders,

    Since we launched the Razer Phone, you’ve provided us with amazing feedback telling us about your experience with this new device.

    We have a whole list of updates today but here are the main ones:
    • Added 2X zoom button;
    • Improved shutter speed in low light and when using HDR [Min: How much faster?]
    • Reduced noise and clearer shadows.
    • Improved picture quality with better color cast.
    • Multiple new image optimizations and improvements
    The Razer Phone camera app is now better than ever and we’ll continue to improve it with your feedback! Check out the latest version of our camera app and keep letting us know what you would like to see on the Razer Phone.

    And we are still working on making the camera on the Razer Phone the best in the industry (with your feedback!) Next update you’ll see a slew of new features to put it on par or better than the features on the camera apps in the other flagship phones out there.

    Great the camera is getting updated it was seriously needed

    Some other things do need tweaked (I know the changelog doesn't state everything)

    Vibration motor needs some tweaking it's horrible (if possible)
    Definitely need an all black theme (including system settings)

    Also need factory images!

    Thanks for all the updates lately and in the future.. We have faith this can become the best phone out on the market to date with a few more improvements!

    Got the most recent update and definitely see an improvement in the camera speed and quality already, can't wait to see what's coming out next.

    As for features.. I definitely can still see improvements with the camera in the future to make this an awesome every day shooter, but also agree with user above me that vibration intensity needs to be adjusted, but would like to see the option for us to set the vibration stregth ourselves, some like it stronger than others. Also more non-game themes.. Like the all black suggested above or one that's all razer green. Wouldn't mind one that's orange and black too, but I'm just Wierd like that (Getting an orange carbon fiber dbrand skin)

    One last thing... Factory Images! Love the phone but I'm a guy who loves custom ROM's and we can't do much till we get them and have a way to revive our phones if something should go wrong!

    The updated camera app does seem faster in non-HDR and (sometimes, depends on factors I'm not sure of) in HDR. The time spent taking HDR photos is quite long. It seems much harder to manage when zoomed x2 than when at x1. I feel like it is difficult to take HDR pictures due to how long the camera must be kept still, lest the picture be blurred.

    Black levels seem to be better, leading to better low-light pictures. The 2x zoom button is extremely convenient. I feel like the quality when zoomed leaves a bit to be desired considering the dual lenses.

    I've noticed that taking an HDR picture while in 2x zoom makes the camera all wonky. Also, sometimes the app gets stuck processing the HDR (with the loading circle).

    Overall it does feel like a huge improvement, though. Thanks for all your hard work, and I hope you keep working at it :)

    Thanks for this update.

    One more suggestion for the next update : when we turn the phone (volume buttons in the direction of the ground), that the speakers restore well the directional sounds (currently sounds are reversed).

    Thanks again for your work !
     
  7. Hi ..When is this update available over in the UK with variant Three network ?
     
  8. Hi, could we get an update to the other system icons on the phone so that they match the new icons on the updated apps? The camera, game booster and theme store now all have a brighter green with black as opposed to the more muted green and white that is still on the phone, settings, calculator, clock, contacts and downloads apps.

    I dont know what I would call it, but when I take a HDR picture I have to stay perfectly still to get a decent image without blur, is this an issue with my phone or an update razer could implement on the software end? Just wondering ^.^

    When do we see an update to N 7.1.2 and i am still on security patch of october?

    7.1.2 was primarily for Nexus/pixel devices and any needed fixes would have been merged with 7.1.1 it's why hardly any device was ever updated to 7.1.2. and yes security update still October but major fixes from November are in the phone (Like Krack)


    It's not your phone it's just razers shit camera app, try the modded Google camera see if that works better.

    Hm, came from a Blackberry Motion with 7.1.2. So not only for Nexus/Pixel.
    Hope we see 8.0 soon.

    With my phone, when I take a photo, I can find the image here :
    Settings -> Storage -> SD Card -> Other (explore) -> DCIM file -> Camera file

    oh i see - didnt realise it was a Play Sotre app - usually stock cameras are incorporated into the rom...so i thought it would come down as an OTA update with other fixes...

    thanks - it looks like mine was updated automatically along with my others...

    SUGGESTION: It's still a phone. I'd like the future phone to include 4x4MIMO if not better in the next gen phone. As well aim to be top in camera features and quality! Social media is just as important and related to gaming for most!. Hope to see these improved in the next phone! ;) Thanks!~
