So I've gone from an s21 ultra to a fold 4 to a s23 ultra. 

The camera on the s23 ultra 200mp and 50mp and auto 4:3 are all worse by a substantial amount compared to the s21 ultra. So much so I have had to grab my wife's iPhone 14 pro max to compare. I hate iphone with a passion. Pictures were always so much better . But now her iphone is a lot better than the s23 ultra camera. 

Is this a software/processing issue that will be fixed in an update. Its do much of a downgrade I'm close to switching to apple, don't make me switch tell me a fix is coming. 

Apart from the disappointment of the camera's the phone is amazing fast fluid handles anything you throw at it, dex works seamlessly. Outstanding work samsung. 

Just fix the camera.

I have exactly the same issue.  Unless I am taking a picture of a still subject in excellent bright light the pictures are terrible. 

I managed to get Samsung to take it in to be fixed.  Even though it's a brand new phone and is clearly faulty they won't replace it or give a refund!

Of course it came back as no fault found, which I expected.  Pictures are still guff.  They should be recalling these phones.  That advert 'can you send me that' makes my blood boil!

I can't get a good pic of my grey and white cat at all.  Even when she is still the quality is terrible.  Even using 200mb.

Really?  It took me hours and hours to get them to take my phone in for a check and of course they sent it back as no fault found.  This is a known issue and if what people are saying is true, it doesn't effect all phones.  It should be a straight replacement for a functioning device

I've been playing around with the various camera modes lately and from what I can see, 200 and 50MP modes are noticeably inferior to the 12MP mode in poor light conditions. It is exceptionally good at low light in this mode however, better than any previous Samsung camera phones.

Same issue here, no matter if it's in daylight or night shot. 50&200mp are much inferior than 12mp on this smartphone.

no official position from the company after months of this issue?

I agree I regret buying this camera. I did read reviews first which said it was good but for the price I expected a better camera than this ***** thing. I take a lotta pix and most of them have some screwup in the end result.

Mines the same, the main reason I went for the s23 ultra was because of the camera, I haven't had it a week yet and I'm very disappointed with the camera quality, my s20 took clearer photos.
