As per advertisements it comes with a bigger sensor, larger pixel size and optical image stabilization. Front camera was a robust shutter on a 16MP sensor with HDR capability.
Although great precision was taken to build and advertise OnePlus 6, users did come across issues with blurry images in OnePlus 6.

Things one can do to Avoid Blurry Images in OnePlus 6?
If the latest OTA update is also unable to fix the blurry image issue on your OnePlus 6 it is quite possible that you have been worrying for unnecessary reason. We can check the below thing to ensure that we get the picture from the OnePlus 6 Dual Camera setup.
- Clean the OnePlus 6’s camera Bump: Often with time a lot of dust is accumulated in and around the camera bump, one needs to keep the area clean in order to get a clear picture.
- Picture resolution: Ensure you are clicking in the correct resolution, a smaller resolution for a wider picture will indeed produce clear mages. To check this open Setting from camera application and go into “Resolution” settings. Clicking pictures on higher resolution will always bring out a sharper picture.
- Focus Mode: If you are clicking an image where the subject is really close to lens, ensure to focus properly on the subject. These camera sensors are programmed in a way that if focus is set properly, we can blur a required area (background or foreground) as and when required. Hence wrong focusing can also lead to a blurry image.
Above points can be taken care of to avoid blurry images in OnePlus 6. However, all points stated above are explained considering the OTA update which fixed the issue. These steps won’t work for anyone who has an issue with the camera’s hardware.
As this was one of the initial smartphones to have a dual camera set up, the technology those days were quite underdone. In all the above steps essentially eliminate all software related points. If there is still a blur in an image, we highly recommend you to visit the nearest OnePlus Service center.
