Dear Samsung,

I am just putting out another request to restore the resolution options for video and photos on the S20 FE or any other phones that have lost that option.  We need to be able to take low, med, as well as high res video and photos.  I have never heard of anyone that does not want those options.   This level of High res is only for videos and photos that you want to crop or do something special with.  Normal, day to day, videos and photos do not require such high res.  

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

@DavidG123 Hello, from the current interface you can also take photos and videos with lower resolution and smaller file weight. In camera settings / Format and advanced options, activate HEIF pictures. So the photos obtained will have lower resolution and weight. The videos, once opened from the gallery with Video player / Editor, they can also be redeemed. A greeting.

@DavidG123: Further to the post above by @Ventor you can also utilise the aspects above the preview window to adjust the quality of your photos. To change the resolution of your videos, check the same area above the preview window, to the left of the 'Filter' button, and choose your preferred option (HD, FHD, UHD).

i would assume all phones from the s20 series will have same camera app, or not?
so you don't have the menu on top when you tap the resolution and see this: ....?

Photo options:
Full = 1800x4000 -> 7,2MP
1:1 ~3000x3000 -> 9MP
16:9 = 2250x4000 -> 9MP
4:3 = 3000x4000 -> 12MP
and depending on your phone model the full resolution, as in my case will be 108MP = 12000x9000,
so most of the options are the low resolutions 🤔

as for the Video options
HD 30 = 1280x720 @30fps
FHD 30/60= 1920x1080 @30/60fps
4K, UHD 30/60= 3840x2160 @30/60fps
and the S20Ultra gets also 8K @24fps 7680x4320....which is pointless unless you have a 8K monitor or a TV.

The latest camera app in Huawei phones does not even allow such options, for photos you either use automatic mode or 50MP, and photos that suit a normal TV or PC monitor are not an option either, you can not take pics with an aspect ratio of 16:9 🤦‍♂️🤣

As for the easiness of accessing those options, Samsung has done it best 👍 if only the software was not written by 5y olds 😑

Thank you for your generous reply.  I used the video today for a barrel racing event.  I set the video to FHD (30) and it did well.  I now realized that those options increase or decrease video resolution and do quite well.  And I supposed even the lowest resolution, while still HD, is probably the best low res video and if you want to reduce further you can downsize later.

As for the photos, I understand it better now.  It does allow for some res adjustment, better than I originally understood.  But it says the HEIC feature may not be recognized by some programs.  I am not familiar with the term, but I will try using and see how it works.

Thank you again for taking the time to respond.

Thank you for your reply.  My display is different but it has some the same information.  I agree, there are some options.  I was having a hard time understanding and other comments sounded pretty concerned.  The adjustments are limited, but they at least it does address some of my concerns.  Thank you again.

You are correct.  I see there are some res adjustments available.  The video makes sense and I like it now.  The photos res options are not as good, but there are some.  

Thank you.
