Did you notice that when you upload TikTok videos, they become blurry?
Even if they weren’t blurry when you filmed them, they become blurry when you upload them on TikTok.
This happens either because you’re using the front camera or because of the “Data Saver” feature on TikTok.
This guide will teach you how to make higher-quality TikTok videos with simple solutions.

How Can You Make High-Quality Videos on TikTok?
There are two things you should do to make higher-quality videos on TikTok:
- Disable the “Data Saver” feature on TikTok
- Use the rear-end camera instead of the front one
On all mobile devices, the front camera has a lower resolution and video performance than the rear-end camera.
The quality won’t be as good if you’re using the front camera to film a TikTok.
Another reason for the low-quality videos on TikTok is the “Data Saver” feature.
This feature reduces your use of cellular data, which means the videos will take longer to be uploaded, and their quality will be reduced.
If the Data Saver feature is on, your TikTok videos will always be low-quality.
Turning it off will resolve your problem immediately.
Disable the “Data Saver” Feature
Here’s how to do it:
- Open the Menu and select “Settings and Privacy”
Open TikTok, and you’ll land on the Feed window. That’s where you can see TikToks from other people.
To disable the “Data Saver” feature, you need to open the Settings, which can be found on your profile page.
To get to your profile, look at the bottom of the app for a bar with multiple options.
Your profile is the icon to the right, showing your profile picture.
Select it, and you’ll be taken to your profile page.
Once you’re there, look for a three-dash icon in the top-right corner. That’s the Menu.
Tap on it to open a menu at the bottom of the screen.
Select “Settings and Privacy” from the menu.
This will open a new window with multiple options.
- Select “Data Saver”
In the “Settings and Privacy” menu, you’ll see several options, including “Manage Account,” “Privacy,” “Security and Login,” and more.
You need the “Data Saver” option. You’ll need to scroll down until you see the “Cache & Cellular Data” menu.
Under it, you’ll see the “Free up space,” “Data Saver,” and “Wallpaper” options.
Select “Data Saver” by tapping on it. This will open a new window where you get this done.
- Uncheck the “Data Saver” feature
You’ll only see one option on the “Data Saver” page.
The Data Saver option can be enabled or disabled. If it’s disabled, it’ll look like in the picture a greyed-out button.
If the feature is enabled, it’ll become green.
Make sure the option is greyed-out/disabled, and you’re done.
Use the Rear-End Camera to Make Videos
As we said, the front-end camera is much weaker than the rear-end one.
If you shoot videos using the front camera, they’ll look much worse than if you were to shoot them using the rear-end camera.
Typically, the rear-end camera has roughly twice as many megapixels as the front-end one.
This means almost double the quality of photos and videos on the rear-end camera.
If you want to do a selfie video, why don’t you ask someone to film you using the rear-end camera?
Especially if your mobile device isn’t cutting-edge, the difference between the rear-end and front-end camera might be huge.
You’ll notice a clear quality difference after comparing the two cameras.
TikTok has a system that ranks certain user videos as “trending” or “popular.”
One of the factors that go into this decision is the quality of the video.
Most times, if your video isn’t high-quality, it’ll never reach the “For You” recommendation page.
That’s to say; it won’t become a trendy video.
To improve your chances of entering the “For You” page with higher-quality videos, disable the “Data Saver” feature on TikTok.
Moreover, try using only the rear-end camera of your mobile device.
This allows you to film at a much higher resolution from the start, and the resolution won’t be reduced after you upload it to TikTok.
