Mobile camera flash can wash out the shot’s color. If it is a really important shot and the lighting is suspect, get two shots in, one with flash and the other without.
ISO settings should be kept at the lowest possible setting. Leave the camera’s exposure (or brightness) settings on the standard mode.
White balance should be kept on Auto and the metering exposure on Center-Weighted.
Forget the zoom. Don’t use it–it’s a digital zoom. Digital zooms just make your shots look pixilated.
Go for multi shots. If you phone can take multi shots, go for it. Typical phones can take 6, 9, and 15 shots in a row on medium- and high-quality settings. This is great for being right up in the action and catching it at high speed.
If your camera phone has a framing system try to keep your subject right in the middle–the framing system will help you do so.
Get a grip. The slightest movement can make your pictures look grainy or blurry, so you need to hold your phone correctly, as optical image stabilization has not been implemented in phones yet.
Tweak your settings. Try using your phone’s color/effects settings, such as sepia, black and white, emboss, negative, or anything else it may have.
Use the timer so that the camera won’t move when you press the shutter button–therefore getting rid of excess camera shake. The same concept applies with phone cameras
Shoot in the highest resolution possible. Use the least compression possible: Choose Fine or Super Fine.
