Actually I noticed it today when taking selfies with my friends using my friend's S10+. And it's also the case for my S9 most of the time when taking selfies. Rear camera also has a little lag sometimes when taking a lot of photos, but not as much as the front camera...

Yeah after more playing around, its really disappointing. Tried turning all the picture enhancements off and trying internal and SD storage but its still really laggy on front or rear cameras. 0.5 and up to 1 second between pressing the shutter button and photo taking.

My s7 is rapid in the same scene. Anyone else notice this?

Hope they can resolve with an update

So I worked it out I think, camera seems to have much more lag Motion Photo option on - no lag on the S7 with this option enabled.

Even still, the camera isnt as 'snappy' as the S7 even without this option on

Samsung - please work on the camera responsiveness!!

Do you guys even own an S10? I have been snapping photos all week, and I am getting good shots.

I have the S8, Note 9 and now the S10. I like the photo quality on the S10. So good in fact that I am not doing any more HDR on it.

Attached a photo I shoot with my new S10 past week.

I do have HDR and Scene Optimizer turn on and nothing edited.

I'm pretty happy with the camera. Usually when I show people the pics I take of them they're pretty impressed with the quality.

Stuck in the same boat. White balance and color accuracy is funky. Yellows and Greens in particular seem to get way too much saturation. I can address this in post processing, but I'd rather not have to.

That being said, I installed the Google Camera APK on my S10. Wow... the white balance and color accuracy is a bajillion times better. Not sure what's going on with the developers at Samsung, but they really need to get on the ball and address the stock Samsung Camera App in regards to color accuracy, white balance, and saturation. I like the app. I like the features. I love the 3 lenses.

Google Camera app does not have full access to the 3 lenses (yet). Hopefully the devs porting the Gcam app for Galaxy S10 will have it working with all 3 lenses in the near future. If so, I'll be completely happy to ditch the stock Samsung Camera App because Gcam delivers incredibly lifelike colors right off the bat without any post processing fixes.

The attached pic shows a comparison between an image taken with Gcam and the same image taken with the stock Samsung Camera App. Gcam on top / Samsung on bottom. Gcam is color accurate and lifelike whereas Gcam is way off with the yellows and greens.

Latest firmware update with dedicated night mode brought some improvements to the exynos Galaxy S10. HDR looks much better in difficult light situations, more details in the shadows, a little less overly smoothed noise. Sammy is getting there, step by step!

Coming from an iphone 8 plus...

The quality is good but disappointing. I cannot believe DXOMARK gave it 109 rating and 114 in photo-shooting...

From https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4371509
DXO, looks at sensor potential (numbers), camera features, shutter lag etc. and not at actual photos, most phones have poor over-processed jpeg algorithms with high NR, that's why old phones like the 950, 1020 and 808 still fare so well because Nokia prioritised natural processing (they even said they wanted a DSLR look to the photos), the Panasonic CM1 also delivered more natural results.

I really love the camera on my S10.
I have taken some amazing shots... Here are just 2 I am particularly pleased with.
