It's the first time I am using Galaxy phones coming from using Pixel before.
To me, the result of the pictures taken are rather fake. I knew that there was a lot of saturation on pictures taken from galaxy phones but personally I'm rather disappointed.
I'm not sure if anybody else feels the same and if anybody thinks there's a fix for this?
Sample picture of my daughter's arm while playing in the ground. It's not zoomed in but simply cropped.

@A2B It is how Samsung sees the world. It has been years people complain on skin textures and oversaturation and overprocessing and overexposure.
Obviously, your shot is overexposed. There is several work around :
- try to lower exposure (tap screen and lower the toggle that appears to the low left end, max that you can when this problem occurs : highlights outdoor for example). You will be able to go backward in post by editing the photos with samsung Gallery app without loss compared to what you would have gotten full auto.
- try pro mode if you're a bit into photography, and especially raw if you post-process
- try with or without HDR
- else eventually try 3rd party softwares
I dont have S20 series, but i have to say even though my N10+ has some problems, i have never gotten the one you described, when it was so enlighten outdoor. Pictures come great for such scene...

the problem with the skin tones on samsung is actually a deeper problem that has a cultural aspect
people in south korea and generally in asia - are obsessed with skin tones and they heavily smoothens their skins in pictures
Samsung is just basically giving them what they want - although is forcing it on everyone's throats - since outside Asia - nobody cares/wants to smoothen their skin tones
this is why Samsung needs to stop thinking like an Asian brand and more like a global brand
and sorry if anyone feels ofended but is true
