When taking images by Galaxy S8/S8+ camera, it seems that the focus is not exact. Why?

Last Update date : 2017.06.27

Galaxy S8 camera supports bright and vivid pictures even in low-light conditions as lighter lens  F1.7 is applied.


The definition of photos may be affected by distance between device and subjects when taking photos. This is especially true when you take pictures of extremely close objects (within 10cm). In this case, Auto Focus is not available normally. The subjects in the picture may be blur and unclear.


Therefore, it is recommended not positioning subjects too close from the device (keep a distance of at least 10 cm) in order to take clear photos.


Also, as currently smartphones use spherical lens for their cameras, the level of distortion may differ by lens type. If the viewing angle is wide and the distance of the shooting object is too short, then the said phenomenon occurs severely.


All Samsung smartphones have undergone rigorous internal inspection tests, and are always  controlled under Samsung’s internal high level quality standards.
