It seems I could be bothered to take my proper camera. Somehow I was convinced the colour balance was messed up after a drop, and I'm already annoyed by the UI (Sony), so I had kind of given up on it. But now it seems alright at least outdoors.
We'll see if I can keep this up in order for you to get some more presentable photos.
The photos have gotten a bit worse lately as I switched phone and the new one is lacking in features of the front camera.
Unless I can find a camera app that makes it better (particularly adding digital zoom and selection of focus point), I may go back to using my real camera as I did originally, even though it's more effort. We'll see.
