    Check in your camera's menu if there's quality settings, and if there is, check if it's set to the highest. If it is, and your pics are still shitty, then your camera is a piece of turd.

    Yeah it's probably your camera, or maybe you just aren't taking good pictures, try focusing your camera before you take your pictures. It also seems that there isn't enough lighting in your pictures, flash doesn't do much so you have to find some more lighting.

    Edit: I'm a slow typer...
    Some people aren't photogenic

    Take a pic with the camera slightly higher than your eyes. Everyone looks ugly from underneath.

    You need tons of light to make a good picture with a cellphone camera, even if there's flash you´ll end with artifacts in your photo.
    There's no blur, so you're not moving while you're taking it, there's not really much you can do.

    Yeah, I recommend digital cameras. Natural lighting is the best. Sun light. If you use indoor lights, make sure you have multiples and enough that it doesn't create multiple shadows.. it's actually quite in depth. You have to learn about how shadow and light works. But if you wanna just take good photos, just keep playing around with a pose.

    3/4 poses to side views are good. But people that are photogenic can be taken at almost any angle..

    And touch it up with photoshop. It's what a lot of people do. I rarely ever photoshop real pictures unless its for homework.

    Angle is important too. A 10% angle is better than directly facing the camera.
