    Make sure the protective film covering the lens has been removed. You have to look closely or you wouldn't realize it was there.

    I noticed it day one, didn't take it off because it doesn't cover the lens.

    Photos come extremely beautiful and crisp (of nature, environment etc) but when I zoom in on details post process, they are smudgy.

    Zoomed out they look fantastic, best ever I have seen on a phone.

    My nature shots are amazing, but when I zoom in on details it's not.

    Why Don't you zoom in on this leaves and see if you can see them?

    Do you have an example of people looking clay like that you could post? That would help us to diagnose it better.

    Zooming in is known to cause quality drops though.. That isn't really un heard of.

    I mean post process. On my N2 for example, or my fiancee's S2, or hell, even the S3 and S5s in our home, zooming in only makes the pictures blurry/less res.

    On my N4 however, it's all smudged and no texture.

    Funny I just started a thread and complained about this same thing on my Note 4. It looks like samsung went overboard with noise reduction and they essentially are removing all the detail and then oversharpening to try to put it back. This creates a bit of a water color painting like effect. I'm sensitive to this because way back in the day (about 12 or so years ago) I had one of the first 14mp DSLR's (the Kodak 14n) which did the same thing in the processing software. Everyone complained about the "water color" look. It's smeary... Anyway, I'm disappointed with the Note 4 camera but I'll admit my expectations are probably a little too high for a phone. In so many other ways though it's an amazing piece of hardware.
