How is the quality camera/camera app in fairphone 3? What’s the default app?

I would describe the quality as midrange. Default camera app is OpenCamera fork.

The default camera with /e/ is Open Camera. This might be just my experience but the quality is significantly lower than phones on the same range, particularly in low light conditions. I did not get this phone because of the camera, but it is disappointing nonetheless, since older phones using the same app shoot with excellent quality.

Fortunately Open Camera comes with many manual controls to adjust the brightness and such, as well as options to tweak the processing to increase the quality (I assume this comes at the cost of higher battery consumption).

People on stock ROM have reported that the photo quality improves when using a pixel camera port: https://forum.fairphone.com/t/pixel-camera-app-google-camera-port/53146?u=ingo
