    I want to know this as well. I am on the fence about the Note 9 and Pixel 3 XL. I will gladly wait as Black Friday is right around the corner. I wish a youtuber would do a solid comparison of the Note 9 camera pre and post update.

    Right? I watched so many videos before I got this phone. No ones talking about this issue that I have seen. I wouldn't have pulled the trigger yet if I had just seen this forum first. Very disappointed. Hoping this update fixes it because I love everything else about this phone.

    Sadly, many users have already reported that ARJ5 does not fix the camera-freeze problem.

    I wish there were better comparisons too. Unfortunately I don't really know what to test, I never really had an issue from the beginning. My lowlight photos were always fine as long as I wait for the second or so delay from when I hit the shutter.

    Here are some videos on the camera update - https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+camera+update - I believe the 1st 3 videos cover the differences with some pictures as well.

    Waiting for this update. Hoping a big difference with HDR as this is clearly a software issue, not a hardware issue as I have the Google Gcam mod installed on my Note 9 (very buggy though), but the HDR+ works and is a pretty big difference from the stock cam for a lot of pictures, especially with the smoothing issue.

    Case in point, first picture of my dog is with the stock camera, 2nd is a picture with the Gcam mod with HDR+ on. No filters or anything on either, just auto. I cropped both the same so you can see more closely. You can see the stock camera makes his fur look cartoonish vs the Gcam:

    This isnt a note 9 camera issue... This is a user error issue... At the very least, its not indicative of the failure of the note 9 camera... Please dont think I'm saying the gcam isnt an improvement, it is... I'm just saying these example's differences isnt fair...

    The composition is different... The dog is a larger part of the frame in thr 2nd photo... When it comes to auto metering, this is a factor... I'm betting you could take that approximate same 2nd photo with the note 9...

    You said hdr was on for the 2nd, was hdr on for the first? Was it manually turned on? Or was hdr set to auto??

    I'm only combatting this post because others with not so much experience will see it and come to misled conclusions

    Sorry I confused the order of the photos but my points still stick...

    Also, this scene is not beyond the dynamic range where the hdr should be used anyways

    The original pics were taken at the same distance, both with HDR on with both camera apps, and what I posted here was just a quick crop I did on my laptop - not perfect, but enough just to show the difference and make my point.

    This smoothing is a common issue, even with pics of people too. I hope the update addresses all of this as it's been frustrating to not get good pics as often as it should with a camera this good...

    I have both phones. I love the Note 9 a lot but the camera continues to frustrate and disappoint me. The Pixel 3 XL's camera continues to blow me away if for just being consistent. Hardly ever a bad photo. With the Note 9, I was always battling blurry photos in addition to the photo app lagging sometimes (viewfinder would just freeze for a few seconds, slow to go in and out of app), sometimes it wouldn't take a photo when pressing button and just battling the quality of the photos.

    I will miss the S-Pen and overall power of the Note 9, but the camera on the Pixel 3 XL is not overrated...if that is a top feature, then it is for sure something to consider.
