    Ok, I want to love my s10plus. I do. But I feel it doesn’t shoot as good pictures as my iPhone XR Plus. Today I used my S10plus to shoot pictures and video at Church and the pictures aren’t as clear as I would like. WHAT AM I MISSING? Is it a setting I am missing? The fact that I was inside? (Which would be dealbreaker for me if I can’t get good pictures inside)

    See https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh....php?p=6549392 There's a better camera app to use.
    That's for the Note 10, but if it doesn't work, there should be a port for the S10.

    Samsung allows you to adjust the exposure. The easiest way, which doesn't require dealing with the settings, is to put your finger on a dark object in the frame. You should see the scene look brighter, which means you'll get a brighter picture. The converse is true. If the image is overexposed (washed out), put your finger on a bright object in the frame. That will make the picture darker.

    The pictures look fuzzy, not clear and crisp. I wasn’t trying to zoom in or anything.

    The S10 camera makes my cats look like a smoothed out mess but apart from that, it's been pretty great. I use Google's camera to take pics of the critters. Better results.

    This. This started from the note 9 camera and seems to still be an issue. Basically furry friends' hair dont look right.

    I would go with manual settings and bump up the shutter speed.

    I guess I am questioning if I should have sub-par pics with a high end phone? I love alot about this phone. I do. And when I use my iPhone, I always miss my Samsung- except when I know I will be taking pics and then I start regretting using my Samsung to capture big moments.

    I wonder if your S10 has an issue? I say this because I have Xs Max and truly, the S10 seems to take better pictures. I can tell and so can my wife (in a blind comparison).

    I'm not trying to turn this into an iPhone vs Samsung comparison. Just wonder if your phone has an issue.

    I also find the S10 quite good and it runs side by side with my 3XL

    I took still shots yesterday, outside, at a barbecue. They were great pics! So, I guess that narrows down things. I can’t use my Samsung to shoot pics inside. Which is a huge deal to me. I love everything about my Samsung except the camera issues I am having. I’m taking my iPhone to an awards ceremony for my child, to make sure my pics aren’t blurry or distorted. I guess it could be a lighting issue, but my iPhone doesn’t have problems with lighting. I’m not even biased toward Apple, I’m never happy using my iPhone! I always miss my Samsung!!! But, the camera is a huge factor in my decision about my daily driver.

    The best camera with moving objects has been the Pixel. My only complaint is that there are no manual settings. Your best bet with the Samsung is to set a faster shutter speed.

    Have you experienced the issue before on Samsung phones or is it just this particular one? I’ve never seen anyone point out any camera issues with the S10.

    The pet hair fuzziness is probably caused by the aggressive noise reduction AI...but it should be (in theory) counteracted by the ‘Pet mode’ via scene optimiser.

    As MD said, going to manual/pro mode and keeping everything on auto apart from shutter speed might help...good luck with fixing your issue!

    I messed with the ISO which was the previous suggestion and no dice. Same results. But turning Screen Optimizer back on certainly made an improvement.

    Bumping up the ISO would introduce more grain and not reduce motion blur if that's the problem. The trick is to use a faster speed and if it's too dark in preview bump up the ISO slightly but try not to go above 400

    First picture has more color pop, second better detail. Which one is more realistic?

    The second is closer to what his hair looked like in that lighting. The first is closer to what his hair looks like in daylight, which he wasn't in daylight. So in this situation, the second was more accurate to what I was seeing with my eyes. It's kinda weird haha.

    The first is my S10+ and the second is my Pixel 3a XL.

    Some people like less accurate colors...lol. I prefer what looks most like the actual scene, but sometimes it also depends on what the media is your using to view. I tend to like the Google shots better. It's funny, MKBHD did a blind test on cameras....a lot of people did not always pick the best rated phones.
