I see what you are saying about beauty face mode, but there is no flash with that mode. Also, if I leave it in beauty face mode and lets say turn the phone off it'll default back to the auto mode. Beauty face also has other effects added to it, which I prefer my pictures to not have. Why is it that Samsung does not provide a manual shooting mode, where you can set all the settings the way you like and keep it that way or maybe I just haven't found it yet. If anyone has figured this out a reply would be much appreciated.
