I was taking pictures and realized they were extra blurry/terrible, and I decided that maybe the resolution of the pictures was off. I tried for literally 30 minutes to find where I could change the resolution of pics and videos...and they're gone. There is no way to select the quality of your pictures. I can't imagine any reason for this move besides making older phone models irrelevant by intentionally nerfing camera hardware that should still be relevant. Wow. New low.
It looks like that's just how it is now. It's nice to know that these guys can actually revoke capabilities from the phone someone bought in order to make it less useful and encourage the purchase of a new phone.
Thanks! I got GCam, which does a great job of getting better photo overall, but I will check out that app to see if it gives me more freedoms. I appreciate it!
