This photo was taken in direct sunlight and the highlights didn't blow out. The OnePlus 6 is really good about protecting highlights.

My car when I'm not taking the bus to work.

(Sadly, this is not my car. And sadly, I take the bus to work.)

Images are sharp with good detail as are the flavors in the tacos from Trejo's.

This was taken just after sunset. The phone did a good job of exposing the image and keeping colors accurate.

OnePlus 6 -- 19:9

One of my favorite things is switching aspect ratios and the OnePlus 6's camera app makes it so easy. This was taken in a 19:9 ratio, which basically crops the image to fit.

Another photo just after sunset. Again, I like the exposure. There is a tiny bit of noise in the shadows.

Cable cars in San Francisco do go that fast, but the OnePlus 6 did a great job of freezing the moment with minimal motion blur.

OnePlus 6 -- Portrait Mode

I love the background blur aka bokeh the phone renders. It's smooth and creamy and portrait photos look natural.

Portrait Mode also works well on avocado toast.

OnePlus 6 -- Portrait Mode

One of the fun and slightly cheesy additions is the ability to add bokeh circles, stars and hearts to photos. Notice the stars over Groot's head.

The phone uses AI to improve the clarity and look of photos. Sometimes it gets it right.

OnePlus 6 -- Smart Capture

Other times, it gets it wrong. Notice the royal blue sky.

In truth, out of the hundred plus photos I took, only three had bad results from Smart Capture. I wish you could override the feature like you can on the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro.

OnePlus 6 -- zoom

Many dual-rear camera phones have one camera that is more telephoto than the other. This allows for optical zoom.

However that's not the case on the OnePlus 6. It only has digital zoom. I took this photo three times zoomed in at different magnifications.

This one uses no zoom.

OnePlus 6 -- low-light

The main camera has optical image stabilization (OIS) and a larger sensor than the one on last year's OnePlus 5T. This points to good low-light photos.

OnePlus 6 -- low-light

The OnePlus 6 handles darker environments well. It balances the amount of noise and noise reduction.

When things get really dark, the noise is noticeable but the way the OnePlus 6 renders the noise makes it look filmic.

The front-facing camera is OK. But the real fun will come when a future software update brings selfie portrait mode.

The front-facing camera isn't very wide, making group shots kind of tight.
