    So I went to Best Buy to look at the Note 20 Ultra and I compared the camera side by side with the S20 Ultra and A50. The Note 20 Ultras Camera was a little disappointing as it wasn't as detailed as the other phones. Hopefully a software update can improve this.

    Were all the settings the same? Shouldn't be a big difference and taking pictures in the store is not always ideal.

    Same settings. 9:16 w scene optimizer on. Even when I turned scene optimizer off for both the Note 20 Ultras Camera had a less detailed view.

    I've always been extremely disappointed with the camera on my Note 10 + especially coming from the Pixel 3XL. I really hope Samsung does much better. I've tried so many different settings and pointers and I was never wowed by any of the images like I was with the Pixel

    This guy has camera samples from the Note 20 and they look good (Starting at 6:11). I also have the Note 10+ and the pics on my phone are great I don't really expect anything less

    So it doesn't look like it comes with a screen protector

    Looking that the reviews I will call BS on your personal review. The reviewers have pointed out the very clearly the S20 camera isn't as good as the Note 20 Ultra. But you are welcome voice your opinion. If the camera was wasn't as good all the reviewers would be reporting the same thing. huh!

    I highly doubt the Note 20 cameras will be a disappointment.

    Does Samsung still have that smoothing effect on people's faces? On past Samsung phones I've seen it always looked like there was a beauty filter on.

    I recently had the Huawei P40 Pro for review purposes and I had a similar experience to start with, I couldn't get clear photos, seemed to be over saturated and after a while I just reset camera settings to default and the difference was night and day!
    Maybe the shop phone setting had been played with on the Note 20 ultra.

    I have different impression. The zoom and auto focus was much improved. Focus locks pretty much instantly especially compared to S20 Ultra even after updates.

    Yeah a screen protector with a hole in it for the fingerprint reader.

    Early hands on suggest it’s a lot better in this area

    This makes it tempting to upgrade. And the bigger battery.

    Why are you taking cropped photos at a reduced resolution to compare detail?

    If there are issues with camera in the demo models this could be good news for us when we get our Notes.

    I'm hoping some improvements for the Note 20 camera. I have the S20 Ultra and I love it but the focus on close up things bothers me. Hard to take pictures of my products, I end up switching back to my Pixel 4 XL.

    You can turn that on or off and even adjust how much you want the picture to be filtered with a slider Note 20 Ultra Subpar Camera; Needs Software Update?-screenshot_20200808-111929_camera.jpeg

    Knowing Samsung it likely is. They wouldn't change production half way through to change their screen protector.

    I assume they learned their lesson on focus from the S20 Ultra, I am guessing the camera will be very good. Early reviews seems to think so.

    The way I saw it removed in a video it seemed like a temporary film....not that the Samsung screen protectors are that great to begin with.

    Early hands on seek stunning. Skin smoothing seems so much better
