Hello,

since there are problems with the camera software, I am opening this thread to discuss your experiences and software update news.

I got my S20U Exynos variant today and straight out of the box there was an OTA (430MB) available which stated that the camera experience has been improved. It got better because I have tested it before the update but the autofocus is still "jumpy" and has problems with objects that are near to the phone. Even if i turn on the setting to adapt autofocus to the selected object in the viewer, it still jumps

EDIT: I did some tests today with my own face using the main sensor and the oversharpening / skin smoothing is gone. I tested it with HDR turned off and on.

EDIT 23.03.2020:
Look at this video guys. Focus hunting is gone. Sorry, I have orange blinds and the sun was shining directly on those.

Did the update bring any changes to the over sharpening / skin smoothing with the man lens?

I have just tested it with my own face at work in bureau using the main sensor and the oversharpening / skin smoothing is gone. I tested it with HDR turned off and on.

I just did a little research and it should be the ATC2, right? The one that we all have also fixed the face photos with main camera.

Yes, that one. Hopefully it comes before my return period. If not, I'm sending it back.
