S10+ Camera, not really "professional" at all....

First Poster

Got my S10+ preordered and got it on the 8th of March. Splendid phone, display, battery life... but when testing the camera..i can say that i am disapointed beyond any form of recovery... even with the 3 cameras on the back....it really cant match other phones...and that in a bad way... I have a Galaxy S8, which i was hoping to replace it with this S10+, but to be honest...the camera on the S8 takes better photos by far compared with the s10+...not talking about low lighting, or any fancy stuff..just talking about a standard photo of my 4 month old child...yes...lighting is definately better...but ..overall capturing "moving" subject and colour replication...is way way way way better on the S8...Even normal pictures taken with natural light are really like grainy...like ISO is used way too much and even with the F1.5 at 1/500 and iso 800  (pro mode) pictures are so grainy...and really dark and that is with natural light...not studio or anything...(btw..i am also a professional photographer and i know my "sh...t")

so i am now thinking of returning back the S10+ as the main reason i got the phone was to have a great camera and photo experience....

Really Really dissapointed because of that.. and maybe you think that it is something software related with the new Samsung One OS that came out...nope..upgraded the S8 to that also...and still way way way better pictures..althought the normal OS before the Samsung one that i had on the S8 was still better when it came to taking photos videos...

Any thoughts or anyone experienced this ?

Did you guys also notice that when you even zoom very slightly into a photo after you took it, the quality is absolute garbage?

Nice photo. I have not been able to upload. Yes day time photo is fine but the issue is with video filmed in low light like in the house.

Yeah noticed this! Something the Note 8 doesn't do, you can zoom right in on that camera 📸

 

The cameras on the S10+ are pretty good in normal daylight but again if you zoom in the quality is gone  that's in daylight! Not sure why this phone is doing this when the Note 8 and 9 don't and both of those take really good pictures at night too.

 

Mind boogles!

@chainfiree @Yes, it's awful. Worse than my S8 👎👎

 

My wife has just purchased the p30, absolutely blows the S10 away  Shocking effort from Samsung. I really hope the update comes soon

And where is the PRO MODE in VIDEO. No PRO at all mate. I surely agree with you. Just for a selfie or something... Professionals should have PRO modes, that dont exist (at least in video) in this ONE UI of Samsung's.-

You can't tell me this image at night is worth spending 800€: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gUsB24YLtdce0YYkkDTODNDLdrriqzVk/view?usp=drivesdk

 

Or look at this daylight picture I took today: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZI7f0zfkqVPzkYg1QOo2l03gXdIcrV_p/view?usp=drivesdk

Not sharp and way too much contrast

Daylight better than night, but still not good overall 🙄 I'm so jealous of the other half's P30 camera!
