    SamMobile reporting "Hundreds" reportin camera defects dust/condensation. Anyone here?? Everyone bring out your flashlights and magnifying glasses...

    https://www.sammobile.com/news/galax...defects-report

    Still out of town and waiting to get home to open my new N20U waiting for me and reading posts and articles in meantime.

    I gotta check the Official Samsung community to see if anyone reporting dust/condensation issues.

    Still very early but mine appears to be fine. It is a tad concerning the level of noise the camera makes when slightly rattled though and it happens when you gently toss your phone down on a table.

    I'd agree except it's coming from SamMobile. You'd think they check on the info before publishing but I guess standards could be sliding in the journalism world.

    The article mentions noticeable camera moduke gaps. So far mine is tighter than a cheap buzzard.

    As far as I know its the image stabilization. Happens on pro cameras too. However now that you mentioned the periscope, I tried it on the Note 10 and its quiet but that doesn't confirm anything either way since they are two different setups. I don't think its an issue in any event.

    Nothing here. My gripe is like most of the time with new Galaxys is the photo quality with the camera. I noticed compared to my Note 10 Plus that photos seem too bold. Like selfie mode is nowhere near as good on here, especially in the beauty mode.

    Seem every Galaxy release they end up doing camera updates. People were complaining about the S20 Ultra camera as well.

    I had a system update after I set it this morning and no change. Mine still makes noise when camera is off. Since this only happens when the camera app is closed, logic would dictate that a camera update shouldn't make a difference.

    I opened the galaxy store last night and there was a camera update. It does not rock near as loud now. I'm not sure what it has to do with it as I don't know much about how it works.

    We could say the same for lots of devices. I'm no fan boy, but Samsung doesn't own camera updates based on all the devices I've owned. I will admit the S20 Ultra had more than their fair share though, however that was mostly for two specific issues and in the end the issues were minimimized.

    Yes, mine is rattle bucket also. I believe it's even worst than the S20 Ultra was.

    Wow...there were 14 updates there including the camera. The update claims it added a depth guide pop up for close range shooting. I thought that was already there. Still no change in rattle for me.SamMobile reporting "Hundreds" reportin camera defects dust/condensation. Anyone here??-screenshot_20200820-212225_galaxy-20store.jpeg
