I have noticed when taking photos on my S20 Ultra I get a weird white dotted line across the photo, but in a different location while previewing.
Has anyone else got the same issue?
Update: when looking at RAW (.dng) files, then the dots are *not* present, which leads me to believe that problem stems from a faulty image optimisation algorithm.
Neither firmware updates nor resets of the phone solved the issue, which by technicians ultimately was deemed a hardware error.
I had the phone replaced, and the new one did not have the issue. However the new one had issues with the SIM-card reader and a bloating battery.
After struggling for almost a year, I returned the phone, and when announced, bought the regular S21 instead - I did not even consider purchasing the S21 Ultra as I got my fingers severely burnt on the two S20 Ultras I owned! I will not fall for that again.
At the same time I bought the high end 8K TV (Q950) from Samsung thinking I could watch my 8K videos on the TV as advertised during the 2020 Unpacked event. But, that was also a waste of money, as I am yet to experience any 8K contents on my Samsung 8K TV.
I have been in contact with Samsung support on several occasions as I think it is clearly false advertising. They all blame YouTube for not updating their app - even though I bought the TV from Samsung.
Oh well, the next time I buy a new TV it will *not* be from Samsung. This is a story I tell to anyone who listens, and I have actually talked a lot of people from purchasing Samsung TVs on that account.
