I put in a question this week about why my Camera magnification is not clear since I have 5 eyes at the back of this phone. According to suggestions I used the magnifier app to take a magnified picture and also changed the settings of camera and touched  the screen on the particular item to magnify. It doesn't work.(oh & U can't zoom in when the "super steady' is on...)  There are no clear excellent closeups possible with this advanced latest phone from Samsung. My S7 edge (just got this new phone 3-4 months ago) from 5 years ago was great. >Please send out an upgrade for this camera<  I hv this phone BECAUSE I wanted a great camera.  Not an unreasonable assumption of this phone & Samsung on my part...

Did you take the plastic off the camera? I know it's a silly question but it happened to me before lol

I have just the s21 ... 3 cameras. I was also frustrated with the close ups so I did a little research and discovered that you need to touch thw screen on the close Up once you have zoomed in and then it will focus a perfect pic.

How about this Four Eyed Beast complete with pollen stuck to the hair on his leg.  And no, this is not a picture from a phone 🙂 but it is from an entry level DSLR

Macro doesn't necessarily mean that you're lens is close to the subject, just that it's a close up shot.  This crop is from a photo which was taken about 3' or 4' away from the spider with a 150mm lens so use the zoom lens on your phone and have plenty of light.  With live subjects distance is your friend so that you don't disturb them.

I haven't tried any macro shots with my Ultra but I will during the next day or two and see what the results look like. But I don't expect it to be anywhere near as good as a DSLR and good glass.
