[Galaxy Note 5] Why there is slight picture distortion occurs when taking pictures using the front camera?

Last Update date : 2015.11.25

The front camera of Galaxy Note 5 uses wide-angle lens. This is very useful and convenient because it’s suitable for taking wide-angle photos when using the camera close to the subject (e.g., when taking a picture of yourself.)

Minor image distortion may occur in wide-angle photos especially at the edges of the preview screen due to the properties of the lens used to take a wider screen image. It does not affect device performance problems.

At this time, enable Shape correction option to correct your face shape. Shape correction option corrects your face distorted at the edges dynamically according to angles and distance from center. You can set the option to Beauty effects.

Please note that after shape correction, the background may appear slightly distorted since the correction algorithm is applied to overall image. If you do not want this, please use it after deactivating the Shape correction.


To set Shape correction option, do the following:
1. On the preview screen of Selfie mode, tap Beauty.
2. Tap Shape correction.
