So I just started noticing this after updating to Android 13. Anytime I use the main 1x camera, the picture is extremely blurry except in the center. It acts like it is in portrait mode but it's in normal photo mode. Switching to ultra wide, 3x, or 10x the problem goes away and everything is sharp and clear. Things I have tried
Using camera raw / instagram - same issue
Resetting camera cache, entire phone cache, and complete factory reset (x2)- same issue
Made 1000% sure im not in portrait mode. Reset all camera settings to default - same issue
Cleaned the exterior of all the lenses - same issue.
This is so disappointing as I picked this phone for the camera and now the main lens is more or less useless. Phone hasn't been dropped, submerged in water or anything. I'm relatively certain this issue only started after updating to android 13 last week but unfortunately you can't roll back to 12 once you upgrade. I tried the *#0#* thing, chose megacam, the issue still remains and it's only on the main lens. Any ideas?
Just faced the same issue after updating the S22 ultra phone in the weekend. Willing to take pictures on my dads funeral today but facing the same issues as above mentioned. Really annoying...wish testing would have done better which could have prevented this one.
I am facing the exact same issues. It's so embarrassing to have spent so much on this phone that has all these crazy lenses, yet fails at taking normal photos in 1x! I really hope they get to fixing this issue as I got this phone with the camera being a big incentive.
I am experiencing the same issue thought it was messy lenses at first but it wasn't. Hope they get this sorted!! I have had nothing but issues with my Samsung S22 Ultra. When you pay around £1300 for a phone you don't expect this many issues!!! Always been Samsung but this phone has been nothing other than a pain in the backside. Seriously considering other options if samsung don't sort these issues out.
Thank god it's not just my phone. My S10+ battery failed before xmas, so i bought the s22 ultra due to the camera specs and RAM, but all my pictures from xmas and new year got blurry in normal 1x mode. Tried to switch off scene optimization and change from 3:4 to 3:4 108mp, but no difference. So now i had to google it and must say I'm disappointed that Samsung have not fixed the issue on their top model 2 months after the first reported issue. For the price i expected top notch camera, but my s10+ camera was so much better.
Same here. Is there any fix for this?
