I have noticed that my new s22 Ultra washes colours out of face in indoor lighting. At first selfies look great but after taking a photo the phone makes some sort of adjustment that is supposed to enhance the colours of the picture but instead it makes all photos overly lit and it fades the colours. Face looks pale and grey. Have anybody else noticed this same issue?

I'm experiencing the same thing and I can't find any setting to turn it off. Even if I wanted this feature, it's not useful when I have no idea what it will look like until after I've taken the photo. It takes away the user's control over how their photos turn out, which is incredibly frustrating.

I've noticed the same I think, it washes out indoor photos and even some outdoor ones. They look awful. I swapped over from a pixel and I'm so far regretting it.. feel like all the photos I took with that phone turned out decent but I'm struggling to get a good photo with this, especially the ones of people.

If you're finding that your selfies aren't turning out as you'd like them to, then please try opening the Camera app > Swipe up or down to switch to the Front Camera > Effects (top right, magic wand symbol) > Face, and adjust the settings from here. You can also tap the cog symbol > Selfie Tone Colour, and select 'Natural' or 'Bright' as the default. Let me know if you notice an improvement.

I'm having the same issue with my s22+. I have changed every selfie setting at least twice and it still happens. It is comical. You take a selfie, open the gallery, see the original photo for a millisecond and then watch it change in front of your eyes. It makes your skin look whiter and your face wider. (I have definitely turned off the retouch settings and have also tested in other apps with the camera and had similar issues.)

Thanks for the response, but messing around with those and every other settings was the first thing I tried. I believe what is happening is Samsung's advertised 'smart enhance' ai feature, but to us it's just an annoyance because it takes away user control. What's the point in using any of my camera settings in selfie mode if I have no control over the result anyway?

The background of my Ultra's selfie images are NOTICIBLY blurry compared to my Note 10. The tone of my face is clear but the background, e.g buildings, trees lack clarity. Even the S22 plus has a clearer background. Anyone else notice this?

Same issue here
Even though I disabled the beauty function, it still processes my selfie photo which makes it smooth and over whiten.
It happens in all other apps when using the camera, I believe it isnt native camera issue.
Samsung must make it optional for user to choose whether making it beauty or not!

yessss I have had this issue as well. The selfies look horrible compared to my note 10. I'm regretting it! Most frustrating thing is I cant even turn this off. Samsung, do something about this!

I just got my S22 Ultra this week and noticed this as well; The pictures look heavily filtered even when you don't filter them.
The quick solution, or the most natural looking as possible solution, is switching to night mode, I've just discovered.
I love everything else about the phone but this selfie camera situation is almost enough to consider jumping the ship to iphone.
