Why the difference between webcam and regular camera firmware?

Ok, here’s the deal… I converted a brand new V2 camera to a USB camera using the firmware software that Wyze provided. The first thing that I noted is how bad the resolution and clarity of the picture when viewed on either my iPhone or my iPad pro. I pondered this for a bit then decided to do a test…

I took a screenshot of the photo results of the USB equipped camera and then I re-installed the latest Wyze firmware (keep in mind that these are both software packages). After taking another screenshot with the Wyze firmware re-installed, the resulting difference in resolution is dramatic… (same camera, no hardware changes at all just the firmware changes) The question I have is why so much disparity between the USB firmware and the Wyze firmware??? If resolution and clarity can be altered by a firmware change then why not mimic those settings from the Wyze firmware onto the USB package???

How are you viewing the USB firmware camera on your phone and tablet?
Does the doftware have options to set the resolution?
