    Anyone notice how much the white balance tends to over whiten photos?

    I took two photos here (Sony sensor). The first is unedited. The second is auto edited using the built-in Samsung editing tool in the gallery app and is a much better representation of actual colors.

    The Samsung editor did a much better job than the built-in editor in the Google photos app. The Google editor did not do a good job with white balance.

    How does the Samsung editor know how to adjust the white balance? Any why can't the camera app just shoot the photo like that in the first place?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    They probably just settled on a setting for the white balance and figured they would let the customer modify if need be.

    With the 5.1.1 update, that changes, correct?

    I believe so, you should gain a lot more options with the camera settings on the fly.
