Hi received S21 on Friday. Has anyone else experienced problems with the quality of selfie pics? Mine are absolutely awful. Grainy and I look washed out. Taking the same pic with my old S8 and it's hundreds times better. I'm not a camera expert so not sure if it's something I'm not doing that I should be but I don't know what to do. Anyone else?

Have you tried the 3:4 40mp option. When having a play around had good results with front facing using this.

Top of screen as seen here. Although this is on s21 ultra but I thought the front facing cameras were the same.

Hi, I had the same problem with my S21, which I bought yesterday. Out of the box very grainy pictures. Then I noticed a software update was available, claiming to improve the camera (among other things). Now selfies look much better, I think they are still not as good as selfies from some competitors (I did a quick comparison), but they are definitely usable. Hope this could help. Bye.
