It is as good as many digital cameras worth up to around £80 in my opinion.


It's not supposed to be a DSLR-beater.


Common sense would say that but it seems the OP is looking for DSLR quality out of a phone

It is not a software failure. Google Nexus has got many problems in it. The OS itself does not utilises the hardware cores. 
So all application cannot provide enough support to the applications. I think you should report this to google as well try switching to a new phone. 
I hope this helps..


Lies never help. Android uses multiple cores.

The camera qualtiy on the Nexus 4 is pretty bad, and the video quality is even worse (seriously? mono audio? with stuttering and blockiness??). But even so, you get a Nexus 4 because you want well-built powerful hardware, an amazing screen, stock Android + unlocked bootloader, and an affordable price.


It's a phone that does all those things, with compromises on other things. It's not a perfect phone. It's also not $700.

The nexus devices are great if you want powerful phones at stock functionality for a low price, not so well known for their cameras. Probably best to look elsewhere if you want a phone that does camera quality snaps.
