Most owners of modern smartphones now take more pictures with their phones than with a dedicated camera, but the results are sometimes disappointing. Follow these tips and you'll be taking better pictures in no time:
 Clean lens
Layers of oil or dirt will accumulate on your camera lens. Keep it clean for the best results.
 Stay steady
Blurred images are often the result of shaky hands or strong winds (but see also tip 8). Try to support your phone on a solid object when taking a photo and thus reduce camera movement.
 Light adjustment
Before taking a shot, make sure your subject is facing the light. During daytime, you can switch to flash mode to reduce shadows caused by sunlight.
 Do not use zoom
The digital zoom on a smartphone camera will never give you top-notch results. When you can, move closer to your subject when taking photos.
 Increase resolution
The higher the resolution, the more detailed your pictures.
 Try taking photos from different angles
Be creative. If you have time, take several photos of your subject from different angles, and delete the ones you don't like.
 Place camera app on home screen
Keep your camera app on the home screen of your smartphone for easy accessibility.
 Wait for a moment
Smartphone cameras have a time lag until the image is captured. Hold your camera in position for a few seconds after taking a shot to avoid blurring.
