- The telephoto lens can be horrible, my older P30 Pro do much better with an older sensor. The focus is often bad, whether it's optimal lightning conditions or not, the picture is like paint even with only 10x zoom, which is supposed to be optical, and let alone more than 10 times zoom.
- The phone doesn't use the lens properly, it uses the main sensor up to like 4-5x zoom, then only after that it switches to the 3x optical lens. Same with the 10x camera, it uses the 3x up until around 14x zoom. Both obviously turn out horrible as they're digitally zoomed in.
- The oversharpening the phone does sometime can also turn out really, really bad. I took a picture of a lake, with lot of grass surrounding the place I were at, the grass looked like smudged paint, while my A8 (2018) kept much more details, and that's an old, mid range phone.
Now, I'm not sure if this is a software or hardware issue, I tried resetting camera, clearing cache, cleaning the lens, updated software to latest April one. (Yes, I got the Exynos version). I bought this phone for the camera, but at this point I'm thinking about sticking to an old P30 Pro, unless a solution rolls out, or someone could help to solve this problem. Any advices?
I've got zero other issues with this phone, other than its main selling point, the camera.
Have you honestly never had any issues with the 3x lense giving you grainy, desaturated photos, mainly in non perfect lighting? Do you never see it flick between the two lenses?
