Anyone else bummed about the poorer quality of the camera in the 6S? I'm noticing markedly worse images than my 6. Sometimes the in-camera noise reduction is so bad, that it ruins the picture. Things aren't as clear or sharp as they used to be. I can see it even without zooming. I hope Apple can make a fix, but I'm guessing it's a hardware issue

Wife's 6S takes pictures with as good quality or better than her 6 did...I notice a sharpness increase and low light improvement, which is very similar to the results I've found on my 6S Plus. The example you posted is very clearly not the same from picture to picture (whether it's angle, zoom or whatever). I'd say if you personally notice a legitimate quality degradation, go get it repaired or replaced. I've read nothing but positive reviews online about both cameras...and combined with me and my wife's personal experience so far, I'd say your assessment is isolated to your handset.

Here's a nice article giving some visual comparisons of every iPhone released so far...

Looks like one was edited. It's the same photo. How can you take the same photo with 2 different phones?

Actually I read an article to this point today. I'll see if I can dig up the link. But it has to do with that noise reduction. I don't think its a bad camera.

That's exactly what's going on. I'll have to keep testing mine in different situations. I posted this to see if anyone else was having issues. I'm a huge Apple fan, and was feeling disappointed.

So after reading the article posted above I have to say this is the reason 8mp or 12mp don't mean much and when people on other devices say mine is 16mp Apple sucks .. They really don't have a clue and Apple knew what they were talking about

I returned my 6s but had the same issues your were seeing. When zoomed in the over sharpening was causing me to lose detail vs my 6. Especially indoors.

me personally i notice difference only because, i have shaky hands really shaky and i had six plus. i believe correct me if im wrong six plus had the optical stablazition or whatever it was called. my photos sometimes seem be blurry with my shaky condition so i make sure i take enough and just delete the bad ones. but other then that im quite impressed still

What was shown in that article and what you posted in your first post are completely different scenarios...what was discussed in the link was not relevant to the photos taken unless viewed in a 100% zoomed scenario, essentially forcing whatever noise is there to be pronounced. This would not be noticeable in a normal viewing scenario...again, only when LOOKING for it.
