[Galaxy S7 Flat/EDGE]Why the image looks distorted after taking picture with front camera?

Last Update Date : 2018-04-09

Your device is not faulty. The front camera of Galaxy S7 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 that 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 on Beauty effects.

Please note 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 after deactivating the Shape correction.
