I have tried lots of different settings on the camera and none of them give me the true colors of a sunset.  I was trying to get a picture of a beautiful pink sunset and got orange everytime.  My S21 camera took better pictures. The only way to get close to the true color is a video. 

Also, back in May I took a picture of the moon that was beautiful. I don't know what update might have changed things but now when I attempt to take a picture of the moon it's just a blurry image.

I wish I still had my S21!

I have an Exynos S21 Ultra as a second phone to my S23 Ultra, and I must start by saying that the 23U destroys the 21U video quality wise. It isn't even close. Photo wise, the 23U has better noise reduction and detail capture BUT I just have to agree with you when you say that the 21 has more accurate color reproduction. This is even true in video, but here low light noise is appalling and destroys everything unfortunately.

I didn't have the S21 Ultra. I had just the base line S21 and it took pictures with more accurate color.  And I agree that it is stupid that you have to download something new or change all sorts of options in order to take a basic picture that doesn't change the colors.

I have downloaded the Expert Raw and will try that.

Hi! I also have an S23 ultra and I hate that when I take selfies, it makes me look so irradiated and orange when I'm actually a pale person lol I've done adjustments using camera assistant and even turned picture softening to high and turned off scene optimizer and auto HDR and it mitigates the effects but not quite enough. I loved the camera on my Note 9 because it gives more accurate colors in photos. I read this post and I recommend giving raw mode a try. I took some test selfies and it reminded me of my Note 9 camera with color accuracy. Only downside is the slow shutter speed and that it can't take live/motion photos.

Same problem but at all pictures in hight resolution.
When I take a picture in 50 MP ( Samsung Galaxy S23 ) and I go to the gallery immediately ( bottom left corner ) I can see the picture BEFORE optimization, which is much BETTER ( not glossy, not blurry, more detailed ) than the optimized picture. some second and the AI modify the original picture into a worse way. I don't understand why I can't decide which picture I want. I don't like this optimization process because this damage the pictures. It is also true for the RAW pictures in pro mode. They are blurry not so sharp. The preview on the screen is much better than the picture taken.

I have tried several things, lot of options, camera assistant, but these did not solve the problem.

I am very disappointed. I think it is only a software problem and the next updates will solve it. It would be better if I could turn off this automated optimization/enhancing function after taking pictures at high resolution.

I agree with all dear @Harvester , this is the best comment so far i found on internet. I hope Samsung will solve this things. I just bought s23+ and have these anoyings. I 've tried all pro, expert raw : got blurry and too darker photos, all settings to change off/on: again image is overprocessed and oversaturated. It seems the best pic is only when you shot with 12 mp normal, but of course it must be better and more over and important the color and image itself must be more NATURAL!
