Over saturated photos S20+

Hello, is there anything that can be done with all the photos coming out over saturated? Taking any outdoor pictures, especially scenery, the colors are way too strong. It used to not be as bad on my S9+ and S10s that I have seen. It seems Samsung likes to turn up the saturation too much on these phones. I can take pro mode photos and the colors are much better and less saturated, but they also come out too dark this way, even on all auto. And then the zoom options are harder to access also. Please fix the regular camera modes to not be so saturated. Seems to be a Samsung thing. Great great camera ruined by colors that are just too vivid. Same goes for night mode. You can see halo artifacts around objects! This shouldn't be a thing. Anyone else with these same issues.

Doesn't matter if it's HDR or not, and also turned off the scene optimizer right away. Resetting camera doesn't help. It's the software, because pro mode the colors are better. Just too dark

Agreed. It is such a disappointment. I would glady downgrade again if I could. I have been thinking that 6 months is long enough for them to fix the issue, so if its not resolved by the end of September I'll be selling the s20 and going back to an s10. Having a flagship phone that I can't take photographs with is embarrassing!

 

Also photos are very oversharpened, which seems to be an attempt by Samsung to mask the fact that most photographs are slightly out of focus.

 

Samsung what is the time line for a fix? We have waited a long time now!

💯. This really ruins these phones for me and would look elsewhere next time. Otherwise great phones, but the photos are just plain broken.

Re: Over saturated photos S20+

Nah there's nothing you can do.  I've had the Samsung Galaxy S series since the S3 and now I'm on the S20.  I've just finally decided to give up on them.  I have an iPhone 12 and Pixel 5 ordered and am just keeping whichever has the more accurate and consistent camera.  For whatever reason it seems Samsung will never change their ways. Photos have always been oversaturated.  Back in the day they often had a strong yellow tint.  They just seem to program this into the software even when you take off all filters and beauty modes, scene optimization, HDR...anything.  Nothing will help these cameras until Samsung decides to change their outlook on photography.  Besides that the shutter speed is often horrendous on Samsungs.  I try to get good photos of my 1 year old and generally the shutter takes a second or two before capuring the photo resulting in a blurry mess.  I hate this phone. Finally selling mine next week.
