Is there any tweaks that can be done to justify the price paid fir the poor quality?
Here are sample photo and video. Video quality is set to "Best video" and as I said signal is full and I use local storage option as well. The photo using screenshot feature of the app (and Arlo web) is 720p but video saves as 1080p however quality of both looks like 720p. I wonder if Netgear just upscales image to 1080p and calls it new product?

It's possible.. An upgraded firmware from 720p to 1080p with added features and sell for more $..
I've been wondering about this as well. If you save the video to disk, and view the properties (I used VLC) It shows 1920x1072. Perhaps it's the fish eey lens that makes it seem like less resolution? Not sure. Was hoping for better.
The ARLO Pro has the same video quality at a couple hundred $$ less
Plus there was the comments that the Pro 2 wasn’t really 1080P video, rather just upscaled 720 which tends to justify the lower than expected video quality
No more inputs needed on this string
Thank you all
I would disagree that it's just an upscaled 720p. It's noticeably clearer than the P1 cameras but we have to realize that the compression used may confuse the eye. I wish there were adjustable compression levels along with resolution settings but that doesn't appear to be in the offing.
I also struggled to see much difference just by looking at the videos but then did a side by side test in my driveway and the distance at which a car licence plate can be resolved is significantly more with the Pro 2 than the Pro. If you use the zoom function to go to 8x zoom while playing the video, you'll definitely see the difference.
The video compression and the Pro 2 wider FOV definitely make the resolution increase less noticeable
