I’ve had my new phone for a bit over a week now. I am having a hard time and trying not to be disappointed. I am not a heavy user for phones, and thought all of the features of this phone would be perfect for me. Here are the struggles I am having:
Camera: Both front and rear cameras give me grainy photos. Especially the front, extremely grainy. But the back one is not very impressive either. I use my phone primarily to take pics of my kids, and so this is a borderline dealbreaker for me if I can’t figure out how to get it sorted
Battery: Yikes, this sucker drains fast. I am not impressed with the battery life at all, and it is certainly not all day battery. I am not a heavy phone user. I don’t sit there and game on it. It drains while just sitting there?
Connectivity: If I turn off my wifi so that I can use my phone’s data, why is it switching itself back on to reconnect? I turned OFF the wifi, I expect it to say OFF. Ideas?
Also, places I have had great service before, I am now having spotty service. My service provider has not changed, so this is concerning.
Alarm clock: When my alarm clock goes off, I want dismiss the alarm and get up. Instead I find myself mashing the dismiss button over and over desperately trying to get the alarm to shut off before it wakes up my partner. I’ll probably download a different clock app and try that but still irksome.
Overall I like the phone, but those issues are really getting to me. Especially the photo quality. I am not getting the same nice quality as I see others getting. I don’t expect a perfect selfie cam, but the pictures should not be entirely grainy the way they are? Pictures of my still, unmoving children in decent lighting should be clear.
Thanks for any insight. I am up to date, Teracube_S1_06_20200114-1642
Here is a photo album with three example pictures. 1) The best quality image I have managed to get out of this phone, in perfect daylight with an unmoving dog, which is undefined and grainy. 2) an average quality image I am able to get with good indoor lighting and a still subject, very grainy. 3) a selfie with the front cam in good indoor lighting, very very grainy
