I recently watched a video from Max Tech, it was a blind camera review between the S20 Ultra, S20+ & Note 10+...

Link to video
The Note 10+ dominates for a lot of the video but around the 13:20 mark on the video, Max says the Note 10+ fell apart during the low light test because of the camera software not hardware he notes that the Note 10+ could only do 5 second exposure time on the latest update as opposed to the 20+ second exposure time of the S20+ & S20 Ultra & that Samsung could actually fix this in a update.

So why did I make this thread? To complain? No.

I made this thread because I'm curious what you guys think, do you think Samsung will provide us with such a update?, I'm not even sure if they're aware of this issue that's holding the Note 10+ back, but anyway let me know what you guys think, maybe if this gets enough attention and under the assumption Samsung are unaware, we can shed some light on it, in hope of a update/fix!

Impressed that that N10+ held its own there. A software update would be great. Wonder how those same situations would compare using the PixelCam apk. Ty for highlighting this video. Still extremely happy with my N10+.

Agree, after update to Android 10 photo are more grainy. They decrease quality because of S20 premiere.

I don't think it's a Android 10 issue specifically regarding low light, the exposure time being 5 seconds is also prevelant in Android 9 (I've read), it's something Samsung need to newly introduce, extending it, in a future update as far as I'm aware

Also better iso and long exposure. Android 9 had limited iso to 800 and long exposure to 5s. Android 10 3200 max iso and 30 s long exposure. For night landscape with milky way stars or moon this is a huge difference. I stayed on android 9 until last week aswell and i tell you that in camera and battery android 10 is better. Beware i f you update ti backup. I update my phone without backup and loose my calendar some contacts and some movie in secure folder

How are you getting 30 seconds exposure on Android 10, I'm on Android 10 also and it's still only 5 seconds, same as the video I provided, that's why I made the thread as it seems it's capped even on Android 10?

Edit: Is it with the new OneUI 2.1 update?

Thank you for confirming, if possible can you post screenshots/screen recording?, I'd really appreciate it.
