In previous versions of Snapchat, you could control the video quality of Snaps. However, there has never been a feature released to control the quality of your Snapchat pictures. As of the latest version of Snapchat today, you can no longer control the video quality either.
The issues with photos looking better on iOS versus Android comes down to the compatibility of the Android OS and Snapchat needing to support many devices that use Android. For iOS, Snapchat only needs to support one device in this sense (since all Apple devices run the same versions of iOS). Most Android camera phones today have a far superior camera than the iPhone, but due to Snapchat not fully supporting the camera on these phones, the picture quality remains sub-par.
Basically, Snapchat needs to fully support the camera hardware in all phones in order for pictures and videos to be crisp, clear, and top-notch just as the phones themselves would take them.

My mobile camera vivo v7plus is good but when i use snap chat its takes worst pictures
Now i am avoiding to take pictures on snap
I have the galaxy s8 one of the best phones on the market, and it takes worse pictures on Snapchat then some of the older iPhones such as the 6. It’s so dumb and frustrating not to have good Snapchat quality on such a good phone, stop being lazy Snapchat.
I have the iPhone XS Max and the selfies are so much worse than when I had my s7 edge. This camera is better so it should take better pictures on Snapchat. Please fix
I have an LG Stylo and compared to my LG G5, the camera quality is terrible. I just bought this phone and i am very disappointed.
I have the Galaxy Note 9 and it takes okay pictures but the main issue I have with this is when I put a caption. Since you're able to change the fonts, my captions are very blurry when posted to my story. I cannot enjoy the app with this problem, it's really annoying. If I decide to post picture, I'll take a picture on my cell phone camera and send it to Snapchat from my camera roll. Snapchat please fix this problem!
I have a iPhone XS Max and the quality on Snapchat is so bad for videos and pictures tbh!!!! Is there any way I can fix this
I have a Huawei P10. Wish you could let me change the quality of the pictures and videos, as well as the way it focuses the picture. Hope you'll take this comment in consideration and that it helped.
I have the hauwei p20 pro with 3 cameras and the picture quality on Snapchat is honestly terrible. Snapchat needs to improve this so that the picture is at least half decent.
I have motorola one power phone with a notch display and Android por 9.0. My Snapchat sometimes takes worst quality pictures and sometimes it's perfect, I'm talking about the front camera... Please tell me what can I do for this.
Motorola Moto x 3rd gen. The camera quality is awful on Snapchat, and makes me want a new phone or just not take pictures on Snapchat.
This excuse is just plain stupid. The app doesn't need to support the camera, but rather the os. Apps don't install, or use drivers, and in almost all cases, the hardware can be controlled from the app, using the os stores settings and drivers in a *dumb way*. I.e. letting the os handle the hardware driving, and just accessing the image stream available. The real reason snap images look worse on android, is the hack job snap does with its on the fly compression of the images. Whereas on iOS Apple has final say on compression used.
