Hi, when using the camera (front and rear) in low light settings (ie dark room), the pictures are way too dark (same with video). I compared the XA2 with my Xperia X on The brightness on Xperia X is ok.

Device: XA2 Plus, V16 Binaries, Firmware

I also installed an android camera app on the XA2: no difference

Did anybody experience the same behaviour?

Edit: The bug is still present in Seitseminen @Jolla: Please add this bug to the know issues for XA2. It affects multiple users.

I've noticed this as well, on the Xperia X it's much much better but with XA2 any low light condition make the pictures almost pitch black

I was just about to post the same bug report. I think we're never going to get the camera performance close to the stock Sony Android because of DRM keys that get removed while unlocking the bootloader, but even without it there's some room for improvement for sure. Additionally, the camera in XA2 Plus is 24Mpx, but the highest resolution in settings is 16Mpx (on, with it was 20Mpx).

Noticed same thing. Even J1 seems to perform better than XA2.
