Hello,

After reading about awesomeness of Galaxy S21 and S22 Ultra cameras, together with my girlfriend we decided to switch from our OnePlus phones.
Phones just arrived, we immediatelly started taking pictures and they are disastrous. Phones are being sent back for a refund.
Here, have a comparison. All the phones on auto camera setting, with ALL picture improvements enabled, set to default resolution, main camera. Focus and light set on the bottle via touching the screen before taking a picture . All newest updates installed.

1. Galaxy S22 Ultra

2. OnePlus 7T Pro

3. Galaxy S21 Ultra

4. OnePlus Nord 2.

I also want to add that lighting of the scene did not change between pictures.

We went to local electronics shop (Saturn/Media Markt) to compare with phones available there, with the same results - OnePlus Nord 2 took the best quality pictures. And costs only fraction of S22 Ultra's price.

I do not look for help. I'm giving you an information, do with it what you want.

Thus will be my last Samsung phone. I'm really disappointed with my picture quality. My last one, an s10 was much better. Very frustrated at paying the money I am right now.

Has anyone found any solution? The output of pictures makes it look like I am using a low graded phone

My solution is:

1. to use my 5yr-old LG V30 which takes better pics (in most situations) 🙄

2. Avoid buying next-gen Smartphones until it's been reviewed by almost all relevant sites 😝

 

Below, two "wristshots" taken on different occasions, with (my) different Smartphones; you can decide which one came out best 🤔😉🍻

You can use the Samsung app called ExpertRaw. Works quite well.

Using the manual mode in the camera app also works somehow.

And disabling scene optimization in the camera app did also help a little bit.
