Pictures were way better on my Note 9. Idk if it's fixable with an update but there is a good chance i wont trust pictures at least on any future samsung device if this doesnt change. For the most part ive been happy with the phone but i cant have bad photos. Phone is on the latest update 5-29-20

it's because they're out of focus...

The Ultra's large sensor gives it a very very narrow field of focus, so shots tend to look blurry. Some are saying a new update is mitigating some of this, but only so much you can do when the problem is hardware.

Seems like i paid alot more for nothing then smh. I would of been happier with the older camera. What bothers me is how it happens more often then not but i do take more pictures up close

I use a tripod as I need to get detailed jewelry photos and the pictures, up close or farther away, are too blurry to use. I have had to take pics from a camera app and upload them to my device. These pictures are still a little blurry, but nothing like my phones camera. Is there any plans in the near future to fix this problem? Any suggestions on how to fix it now? No, I don't need to update my phone...

yeah, seemed cool but I wanted to see the reviews before I went out and spent that much on a phone. Examples always show close up subjects with most of them blurred out with natural bokeh. Don't know what got into Samsung's head for these phones.

I receive/send pictures and they are blurry. They look great in my gallery just not when I send them?

I don't think that has to do with it. I have to always open the camera app twice to get a clear shot
