With such cool traits, a smartphone camera can’t get any better than this

Despite encountering some difficult operating issues since launching in February 2020, which led to several firmware updates, Samsung appears to have done superbly well with the Galaxy S20 series' camera. These standout features makes it one of the most powerful camera smartphones in the market yet.

Equipped with one of the most powerful camera systems in the market yet, the S20 series boasts a number of standout features such as the ultra zoom (100×) and single take, as well as the 108MP sensor and the 8K resolution video capture for the Galaxy S20 Ultra among others. 

The S20’s camera also features a range of capabilities developed to help users capture, view, edit and share their photos and videos as seamlessly as possible.

Add to this a super fast processor available in the market yet, huge amounts of memory and storage, a killer display, and massive battery life, all which make the S20 series one of the best premium smartphones available right now.

Available for order at Samsung South Africa, along with the latest downloadable software version G988xXXU1ATCT, here are some useful features and how they can help enhance your Galaxy S20 camera experience.

Capture Freely

Custom Filter lets you create and customise your own personal photo filters using existing pictures, including those you have taken using the Camera app. You can now personalise your shots to match your own aesthetic and colour tone preferences, both before and after taking pictures.

Furthermore, for the most seamless video experience possible, you can switch between the front and rear cameras whilst recording a 4K UHD video – meaning you’ll never miss a chance to capture your priceless moments from every angle.

While recording a video, select the ‘camera switch’ icon on the bottom right of the screen to change between the front and rear cameras.

View Easily

With the Clean View feature, the Gallery app can group up to 100 consecutive images into one bundle based on when they have been shot for easy viewing. You can then easily review each bundle and select your favourite picture to serve as the group’s thumbnail.

The Gallery also offers enhanced search capabilities. Compared to the previous iteration, the improved search now shows a more diverse array of results when you search by time or place keywords. If your search term results in nothing to display, your S20 will suggest similar search terms to help you find what you are looking for, with greater ease.

Edit & Share Quickly

Highlight reel creates a dynamic video clip out of your favourite photos and videos. You can either simply enjoy this curated selection of your best snaps or further personalise your reel by amending the duration, adding text, changing the background volume or music and more.

To help you swiftly share high-resolution photos and videos with your friends, Samsung has provided users with Quick Share. It allows you to easily see which users are nearby so that you can select and share high-resolution pictures and videos with multiple people.

With these useful camera features, Samsung is bringing a more user-friendly camera and gallery experience to mobile photography enthusiasts.
