I am having the same issue as well. I have noticed that the camera blurs the back and even some parts that it is trying to focus on. I might just contact Samsung and see what is up, but you ain't alone here.
 
I'm on my 6th Note (the 9 & 10+ are with family members for comparison) and I'm having blurry photo issues too, getting worried.
Also the battery life is nothing short of crap... hoping it's still learning.
Not happy so far.
In the last 2 months I've had an Oppo Find X2 Pro and then a Huawei P40 Pro + and the cameras on both were better :(

I thought it was just me or my phone. You can see the image i took of my sisters s10 plus with her gallery showing with my note 20 ultra. Its very badly blurred or washed out. So i took my sisters fresh out the box note 20 ultra which i was setting up for her and it had the same exact results. I made sure the camera settings was the same on both to compare pictures. Then i pulled up my gallery on my note 20 ultra… and took a picture with the s10 plus. It was a world of difference. There was no blury or washed out colors or words. I asked my girlfriend who also just got the note 20 ultra if she noticed anything blury with her phone and she replied yes and sent me a picyure she took of her daughter eating. The backround was very blury or again washed out with color. I confirmed issues with 3 people that i know personally that have the note 20 ultra.

I cantacted samsung thru Samaung Members chat. I got the typical replies that will all result in a hard reset. Im not trying to do that after i just took an entire day setting up my phone to yield the same results that im getting on 3 different phones. Im afraid unless many more people start seeing this ill have to get another note 20 ultra and fear itll be the same.

Ive been in the note and galaxy family since the s3. I am seeing little hiccuos here and there with the phone. My battety life has been pretty good tho. I see a almost like a glitch every now and then here and there. Cant explain it. Im sure that in time will be fixed with updates. The other thing that is driving me crazy is i use Single tap to swipe feature which allows you to answer the phone by tapping the answer button rather then swiping. But when i activate it… .it brings up a perminant accessories menu on your screen that floats on any screen your seeing. With my old s10 plus it did this to but you can comoletly remove the menu and hid it. On the note 20 ultra you cant. There is an option to hide it on the edge panel but it still gets in the way and i accidentally touch it and i see it on all my screens.

Fix from Samsung

I spoke with Samsung and they said I can file a warranty claim, free of charge, and some expert will take a look at the issue. You can take it locally or have it shipped out.

I will wait and see what fixes arise, if nothing shows up in a month then I will get it sent to Samsung.

Hey I have the same issue. It blurs the surrounding focus. I also checked my s10 and did not have the same issue. Is anyone else experiencing this? Its weird bc this is supposed to be the best camera out there.

Aren't the backgrounds supposed to naturally blur a bit? I remember reviews talking about the "natural bokeh" effect.

I hope not..it ruins the picture in my opinion. But again even the picture i took with no backround is bad and blurry.
