Image quality issues

Hi everyone, I am experiencing some nasty image quality issues on my new XZ2. It appears especially on some indoor photos or in low light, when software obviously tries to boost up brightness. I assume it's a software-related issue and not a damage on the sensor, since I do not notice the defect on every picture or in a view finder before taking a photo. Did anyone experience the same problem?

 

Examples of the defected photos:

Re: Image quality issues

No, they appear during the saving processing, at least in my opinion, because I don't see them in a viewfinder nor on every photo, I tried several times to take a photo of a white wall and they weren't always there, so it's not a hardware problem I suppose. They appear especially when I see that the phone is trying to make the image brighter in processing than it was in the viewfinder. Strange.
