How do I get a High Res Photo on my Cell Phone?

Shoot at High Quality

By default, many cameras aren't set to shoot in high-quality mode, and this is often true of cell phones too. Go into your camera settings and check to make sure you're shooting at maximum resolution and that picture or image quality is set at the highest setting.

Reduce The Chance of Blur

Blurry images are often the result of slow shutter speeds. The longer the shutter is open, the longer the sensor is exposed and then even the steadiest hands will still inject a little blur in the photo. A camera with a mechanical stabilizer keeps the lens in the same position, so photos with slow shutter speeds have a better chance of not turning out blurry. Without image stabilization, there are two ways to decrease the chances of taking a blurry photo. The first is to shoot in a well-lit environment (even if it means turning on the flash). The more light you have, the less time you have to expose the image sensor, which will decrease the amount of movement the sensor will experience. Another way to reduce blur is by resting the camera on something steady like a ledge or a table — or, try fashioning a makeshift tripod.

Turn off Digital Zoom

Only true optical zoom can get you closer to your subject. Digital zoom might make you feel like you're getting closer to your subject, but all that feature really does is crop your resolution and expand the image. You're better off shooting the photo at full resolution (by turning digital zoom off) and cropping it later.

Shoot in Landscape Mode

Cameras are horizontal devices. Virtually every camera on the market is built to compose and shoot images in landscape mode, and only on occasion will you shoot in portrait mode by turning the camera on its side. Phones are the exact opposite — they're almost always meant to be used in portrait mode. The camera in a phone will not shoot in landscape mode unless you physically turn the phone on its side — you should do exactly that. Figure out which way to hold your phone in order to shoot in landscape mode, and shoot that way whenever you can. This will bring you one step closer to replicating the compact camera shooting experience.
