108MP is very useful for Pixel Binning- it combines 9 pixels into one to make a 12 MP image. This means each pixel is larger, allowing them to capture more light and detail VS a regular 12MP sensor. This could be why the regular shot looks better. However I'm not sure, it seems odd and I feel like the 108MP mode should be more detailed and less noisy. Maybe a bug since the phone just launched? Anyways you probably would be better off just using the regular mode most of the time

Are you zoomed in at all? I know focus is an issue with mine but I have the s20 ultra where we knew focus speed was an issue

I know objects that are closer than like 6 inches to the camera tend to do that with Samsung stock camera app. But there's really not any great alternatives because it's mainly software issues. You can get great photos out of it if you fiddle with it and the numbers are there to make a difference I know the settings on the camera from factory tend to be rough so playing with that makes a difference.

Up close photos on it just tend to turn out a bit rougher than I'd like.

Find something in very bright sunlight and try the same test. It has to do with the sensors that are so small not letting in enough light on the 108 megapixel. The normal lens uses pixel binning AI to produce a better picture quality.

It was pretty bright outside when I photographed the fence. Sucks having an 108mp mode just for numbers... I expected some clearer photos. My wife have better pictures with her Iphone

The 108MP is very tricky, you will have to, calmly, know what environment favors you to shoot and which lens to use depending on the environment.
