Snapchat iPhone X Max, XS Max and XR Camera Zoomed In

There have been numerous reports from iPhone X Max, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR users that the camera is very zoomed in or blurry. This is the case on both the front facing camera and the selfie camera. This is so much of an issue that thousands of users have reported they are no longer using Snapchat to take selfies or use the app as a mirror.

Do you have a newer model iPhone in which the Snapchat camera is very zoomed in or blurry? Has it always been this way or is it the latest update. Please comment below with the type of iPhone you have and when you started to notice the zoomed in or blurry pictures with the camera.

I have the new iPhone XR. Snapchat camera is waaaay too zoomed in. It’s very difficult to fit 2 picture in a selfie. Not the greatest camera to have when using it for a vacation for 2 and taking a selfie with a vacation background.

i am extremely disappointed with the photo quality overall of the Iphone XR. It’s very puzzling because my iphone 7 Plus camera was flawless. You would assume a newer phone would have better photo quality. This is very upsetting.

My biggest concern is all of these posts have been coming in for a while. Snapchat and Apple have known about this either and chose to neither make it public, nor come up with an effective way to fix the issue in a timely manner. The other X’s have had these issues for a while. I’m considering returning my phone.

Just upgraded from iPhone 7+ to iPhone XR and the app I use the most, Snapchat, has the worst quality. Shouldn’t the quality be better when you upgrade your phone? Very disappointed. Can we get an update to accommodate the new phones or else point me in the direction of a new app that doesn’t looked zoomed into my nasal passages with blurry crap quality?

Just got XS Max, snapchat looked much better on my pixel 2 xl. It’s zoomed and blurry. Sucks because I use snapchat more than anything and thats like 1/3 of the reason I got the phone. It’s snapchats fault, not apple.

Just updated to the XR yesterday, wish I hadn’t because Snapchat is my most oftenly used app. The camera quality is awful on the application, which in reality is an insult to Snapchat and Apple for their newest release and upcoming trends. They need to fix as more people are getting on the upgrade bandwagon train.

I upgraded from the iphone 7+ to the iphone XR back in november and I immediately noticed the horrible resolution on snapchat and how it was extremely zoomed in! You can hardly fit 2 people in the picture. The phones original camera has great quality as well as instagram no complains there, this just happens when using snapchat. I haven’t seen apple or snapchat address this and it seems like many people have the same problem. So frustrating!!!

Just purchased the XR and I am highly disappointed with the front camera quality. Way too zoomed in & blurry effect. Especially on Snapchat, which is one of the only apps I use quite frequently. Wish I would have stayed with my 8.

Recently upgraded from the iPhone 8 Plus to the iPhone XS Max and the Snapchat camera quality is honestly terrible. Extremely zoomed in, grainy/blurry, grey like tone on both front and rear facing camera. It’s almost as if the quality is the same an Android. Very disappointing.

I just recently got the IPhone XR, which all my prior phones have been Samsung Galaxies. anyway, the selfie camera in Snapchat is HORRIBLE! its way too zoomed in and like me I am a petite person with not a lot of arm extensity so trying to take a selfie with a group or even just one other person is extremely difficult. please solve this issue ASAP !!!! if not, back to Samsung I go…..

Georgina

The issue isn’t with the iPhone. If it was an issue with the phone, the selfie quality on the camera app would be zoomed in, which it’s not. Has anyone been in contact with Snapchat about it? Bit disappointing it works perfectly fine on the X

victoria
Guest
victoria

it’s not just the zoom, it’s the grainy & fuzzy camera quality which is also on the regular camera app. in my iphone 8, i can see everything on my face which is not very ideal bcus of acne & stuff but no one asked for the xr to have some sort of smoothing feature. the xr quality is trash on snapchat or not.

I emailed the Snapchat support group because yesterday I upgraded from a 7 plus to the XS max and omg I didn’t know this was a problem with the phone, I got the phone thinking the camera on all apps was going to be amazing and I’m so disappointed. They sent me an automated reply saying “thanks for letting us know!” when they have known for about a year according to articles. So mad about this.

i had upgraded to the iphone xr and i am very happy with the regular camera, but the snapchat one i am very disappointed. this isn’t fair to apple because snapchat is a main used app, and this upgrade can be a dealbreaker to many people. snapchat has to fix the problem asap! also why is it taking so long? it should be a main priority. nobody wants blurry photos.

Just bought the iPhone Xs Max and the front facing camera on snapchat is zoomed in and blurry. The selfies taken with snapchat are poor quality compared to the ones taken with the regular camera. So the problem isn’t the camera on the phone but the snapchat. Weird since selfies taken with snapchat camera have always been better on my iPhone 6S. Don’t know if it’s because of the bigger screen but still an annoying issue. Hopefully we’ll get a fix for this sooner or later.

everyone that is complaining about it being zoomed in, please stop. it just simply looks bigger because of the new phone style i promise you. the camera quality problem on snapchat is a software malfunction within the app. please do not worry as nothing is wrong with your phone.

the normal camera app still have horrible quality. although the zoom is annoying, the quality itself is grainy & blurry & doesn’t capture details like the iphone 8 does.

Maybe nothing is wrong with the phone but low quality and weird zoom is stupid for such an expensive phone. Would prefer to use my 8 since I now have lower quality pictures.
