I am still having issues focusing up close using 3:4 (64 MP) after latest update. Why has this not been fixed? Pictures remain blurry.

3:4 is better, but forget on going 2 inches away from the subject. Still is blurry.

 

How come I didn't have this issue with my s6 Edge and S9 Plus?

 

Awful.

I think that it is not a sensor issue, it is due to the focal lenght so the focusing you are seeing is "normal" for an s20 ultra.

If i get some cheecky info i will let you know

I dont think this can be "fixed".. You are just too close to the subject. The camera cant focus that close. Get a inch or 2 further and crop in, if you need a picture that close up.

Yes I think it is something like 10cm minimum focusing distance (with the ultra anyway). On my ultra I can focus with the zoom up to x9.9 from about 15cm then when you hit x10 and it changes lens you have to move back. At x9.9 you can get a really close and detailed shot from not too far away.

For me it worked to reset the app settings (for instructions, see www.samsung.com/za/support/mobile-devices/galaxy-camera-how-do-i-reset-the-camera-settings/ )

Yes, disappointing for the flagship phone that it cant focus every time! I would love to have the option to set the focus myself should I need to and for the phone to not override my setting ☹️ If I wish to take a snap of a very distant object I know its focus is infinity. I set it, but then the phone decides that the Moon is only 10M away, sigh!

@Habs111, see my post above, does that also work for you?

Strange anyway that a reset is necessary. I'm going to sell my S20 and buy a Google Pixel with MUCH better camera software.

My S20 plus has problems with live focus after the latest update one Ui 3, the monochrome mode is not working anymore! Befor update i could edit pictures to monochromr while the subject retained its original color, after the update it is just the bunch of histogram messed up colors! Is really sumsung going backward!!? Wasting the phones capabilities, i hope they make it right as before.
