Battery is bad now and camera even worse. Just look at this night mode pic.

HORRIBLE. This is a 1300€ phone from 2021. I sell this pos.

    This update definitely didn't improve the camera.... 😂🤔
    I never really understood zoom in phone cameras. Sure OEMs use them as a marketing tool but it should be limited to only that...there can't be any beneficial real life application of this since phone cameras are notoriously unreliable when it comes to zoom no matter the brand and the level of stabilization applied. Yes, for point and shoot, these cameras have come a long way almost to the point of giving a DSLRs a run for their money. The phenomenal leap in image quality of phone cameras is one of the reasons why point and shoot digital cameras are nearly dead...but when it comes to zoom, our phone cameras have still miles to go...just my 2 cents...

    the only thing that can improve the camera to our liking is to switch the device to another and blame it , and then the next, and the next

    My battery life from today. Done a bit of gaming so don't know if this is normal battery but standby was bad. Currently 13% left.

    Standby really got worse. Lost 3% in a 4 hour night. Before April Update I lost 3% in a 9 hour night...

    Samsung wtf are you doing...

      I was worried before updating, but every aspect of the camera has improved from what I can tell.

      I did some testing - I used my bro's Ultra before update, and tested my own devide updated.

      Pics and vids are more detailed, especially in low light. I'll post some pics here.

      These are pics taken from a really low light video in 4k30. Before the April Update:

      After the update:

      Why screenshots?

      Because I've zoomed in to the photo to show the issue ? 🤔 here's the original photo
      See, posting the original photo is much more useful. We now know that you took the shot at 2x zoom, which is digital zoom. You then zoomed in further to take a screenshot. So of course it doesn't look good. If zooming in that much was your goal, a 3x shot would have likely looked better. Maybe Samsung will be able to improve their multi-lens fusion so intermediate zoom levels can yield better results. But the point remains that little can be learned by posting a screenshot zoomed in at an unknown level, of a photo that was already zoomed to an unknown level.

      Here are some pics I've been snappin for the last few days.

      Bear in mind most of these are with pretty low light.
