    I have the base S20 with latest updates on TMO. The close up pictures are terrible. My S8 was 100x better. Anyone else?

    Ultra is really good now with the latest updates. Does the regular S20 not have the latest close up zoom/fix update?

    Agreed. The recent TE6 update for the S20 Ultra model that includes the Close-up Zoom feature is a big improvement.

    Sadly it appears to be only for Ultra models at the moment.

    T-Mobile (USA) & Sprint as well as a couple of other U.S. SM-G988U models have received it so far. See... https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...=1#post6795839

    TMobile and sprint are one company now. Nothing from att or Verizon yet in usa as far as i know . def nothing for the unlocked us models yet. I have an unlocked ultra on TMobile and haven't gotten it yet. Hopefully we eventually get the update. Not sure why its being held up. Especially on the non carrier branded unlocked models. If you find anything out keep us posted.

    I was under the impression that only the Ultras needed that fix

    I wouldn't know about that Mike Dee, as I have an Ultra but if the S20 & S20+ models do not have an issue with close-up shots, then you are probably correct since Samsung have not included those 2 models in the fix for the TE6 update.

    My S20 plus had a lot of trouble with my stop and shop app. Took forever to scan the barcodes. The pixel 3xl is instantaneous as was the oneplus 7t.

    That is interesting. People have complained about the ultra because it was so obvious. But I guess being unable to scan your shopping could be a big deal if you use that service. I use that service on my S10+ and it has been ok with scanning barcodes but it would put me off upgrading to the S20 if that was having issues with focus.

    How long ago was this? Did you try backing off a bit on the bar code?

    I have the Ultra so I can't try the S20 but I'll try the Ultra next time I go to Stop and Shop which is the only store that has that feature in my area. I prefer the handheld scanner they provide anyway so for me it's no loss. I do know I've been able to read bar codes with no issue for other things.

    I have the S20 plus and haven't had a single issue scanning. I use this feature daily.
