    Is anyone having poor picture quality? Supposedly the S10 camera was superior to all the other cellphones out there. But I beg to differ. Pictures looks good. But when you zoom in, the pics gets super pixelated...

    I feel like the s7 was far better than the S10. Does anyone agree? If not, does anyone have any advice on the camera settings to help with the poor picture quality?

    Attached are two pictures. The one with my bicycle is shot with the S10+

    The picture of ocean in Thailand was shot with my s7...

    None of the pictures have any filters. Shot them as is.

    I don't know where you got the impression that the S10 camera is superior to all the others, however it is pretty good based in my results.

    Also, remember that pictures get compressed when uploaded, so if you really want to compare you'll need to upload this to a sharing site (like Drive or Samsung's temporary file share).

    It was based on YouTubers during prelaunch... MKHD and others says it's a solid camera. Giving Apple a run for it's money.

    But all my pics looks good. But until you zoom in, it gets blurry. I never had that issue with the s7...

    Unless my settings are off? I tried everything... But to no avail...

    Yup. I know about pics/quality diminishes when it's uploaded... But even if you zoom in the pic after you taken a picture (from your gallery)... The pics are blurry...

    I also tried shooting with all the other aspect ratios.. full, 9:16, 3:4, 1:1...

    With the s7, I believe 3:4 offers the highest megapixel (12mp)? But on the s10, it doesn't really say. So I assume it's shooting at 12mp across the board? I could definitely be wrong...

    We can't see the issue on our end because the pictures are already compressed and blurry/pixelated to begin with...

    It is a solid camera but it has not earned the distinction of being the best out there. It can certainly go toe to toe with the iPhone, however iPhone is no longer the king.

    Understood. Just out if curiosity.. if you go into your gallery, zoom into any pics that you may have.... Do you have any pixelated issue?

    When I do, I get a lot of "noise". As if I was using a dslr, shooting with a high ISO.

    I never liked zoom in any phone camera I've used , seems picture quality diminishes.

    Hmmm.. Im sure if you took the same photo with the S7 and S10 side by side the S10 would be better... Because sensors react differently in different situations.

    Out of curiosity. What screen mode and acreen resolution are you using?

    I was using FULL. Assuming FULL would offer max megabytes... Maybe it doesn't??

    Also with the s7, different aspect ratios offers different megabytes options. The s10 doesn't state it anymore... So I'm not sure which aspect ratio offers the highest megabytes

    3:4 is the native resolution for the sensor and photos are apx 4MB. Full drops down to apx 2.5MB

    If it's digital zoom, all the phone is doing is taking a small part of the picture and enlarging it to full size - that pixelates, no matter how good the camera (and I'm talking Hasselblad good). If it's optical zoom, that has nothing to do with pixelation, the lens zooms in. (It could blur if the lens is less than almost perfect, but lenses don't pixelate.)

    No I'm talking about digital zoom .

    First off use 3:4 Full isn't the full megapixels. Confusing I know. Second the s10 looks better here in my opinion. I've had the s7 and the s10. The s10 is much better. The s7 over saturated and had major limitations, especially in high dynamic range.

    @mustang7757, of course. Just open a picture on a computer and zoom in anywhere - that's all the phone is doing with digital zoom. It makes the pixels larger (or it throws pixels away, like MMS).

    Like with an optical zoom?

    All digital zoom is doing is cropping, nothing else.

    It has been noted by others that the S7 had better resolution when zooming. I wonder if Samsung is only building the software for small screens and not 50+" 4k TVs.

    Yes - you can't "improve" digital zoom, it is what it is. Crop the picture and enlarge what's left. (Even film has a limit - I've tried enlarging something barely visible under a 10X loupe, and ... you don't want to know what that waste of printing paper looked like, but I've gotten better pictures when some developer and fixer spilled on printing paper.)

    The only improvement can be optical zoom, but the total membership of Mobile Nations probably doesn't represent 1% of the number of owners of just all Android devices, so we're not about to see a 20X zoom lens in a phone (not that I'd mind one - and a tripod thread on the bottom) - probably not ever. If you want decent optics in anything more than about 3X, you'll have to go to a camera. (And not those $10 "zoom lenses" either.)

    Rukbat answered my question
    I cant say for the s7 , I used to have the s7 edge and cant compare as I no longer have it.
