Poor video quality compared to s9 plus at night

Highlighted
Explorer

Have the s10 plus. Night videos are super blurred and not sharp when recording. I record max resolution at 60fps. Changing modes makes no difference. It is significantly worst than my s9 plus. Anyone else got the problem.

Why is no one highlighting this problem on YouTube or here. Assume people dont film indoor and they probably dont realise there is a problem.  I bought this because they talked about good quality video. But Samsung only referred it to day time. I use my phone for recording 4k but disappointed by the blurred footage.

Hi, I have to agree. I own the S10. My freind who owns the S9 was using his to record some flashing lights in the basement on some eletrical equiment. When i tried this on the S10 it was horrible. Really grainy with like 'noise' running across the screen in lines.

I have to Samsung S10 , was using the Samsung S9+ , it is the quality of recording in 4K 60FPS was a normal night , but on S10 some noise and blurred picture , no definition at all . Disgusting shooting in low light , even if you turn on a powerful light , the picture is still bad . Developers , do something to be able to have a video similar to the Samsung S9

True! I'm using a Malaysian unit and I went out for some cityscape video. It's was so grainy no matter what mode you use. The noise level is really bad! Much worse than my mid range old phone.

Have you guys tried utilising Super Night Shot Mode via the Scene Optimiser? If not please check out the following link for further details.

Of course! But the scene optimiser is not very helpful. Here are a few reasons:

1. The noise removal techniques are terrible. It creates lots of artifacts and photo will lose sharpness.
2. Super night shot is an auto feature, which means we can't activate that feature manually like on the other Android phones. The Pixel 3 is the best example.

The quality of Super Night Shot is horrible if you compare similarly priced phone such as the Pixel 3 and P20 (I'm not even going to use the P30 here).
