Samsung S10 smartphone, even after six months of its launch tops the list of flagship smartphones. The phone performs exorbitantly in terms of speed, battery, design, and looks. Read here: Top 10 reasons to buy the Samsung S10 phone. The phone even has a better camera than its predecessor. This post, we are covering the review of Samsung S10 camera.
Talking about the rear camera, Samsung S10 has a triple-lens horizontally set up with the main camera of 12 MP, Ultra-wide camera of 16 MP and telephoto of 12 MP.
The main camera of 12 MP has a dual aperture that varies between f/1.5 and f/2.4, based on the light condition. The larger aperture of f/1.5 allows capturing more light for a brighter picture. The main camera has a focal length of 26 mm, along with Optical image stabilization (OIS) feature for the stable capture. There is also a dual-pixel phase-detection AF feature, that enables accurate and faster autofocus. The main camera takes sharp and low grainy photos even in low light condition. There is a separate updated night mode which is discussed a little below.
Similarly, the ultra-wide camera of 16 MP can take photos of focal length 12 mm, for wide-view photos. This camera has a wide viewing angle of 123 degrees lets you take photos of buildings, large structures and a large group of people while being very near to the subject. Earlier we had to some distance to get the required shot. And this nearby wide-angle shot does not look unnatural at all.
And the telephoto camera of 12 MP has a focal length of 52 mm, which is 2X zoom compared to that of the main camera. This camera has an aperture of f/2.4, along with the OIS feature. This camera is useful if we want to take photos of an object from a distance.
We can choose either of the three cameras while being on the Photo i.e. auto mode. Based on the requirement of the wideness, you can choose one of them, in the middle of the right side. Here you can select the telephoto, main and ultra-wide camera by selecting the icon with 1 tree, 2 trees and 3 trees respectively. You can also pinch in with your finger on the screen to zoom in or out.
Samsung S10 has a single selfie camera of 10 MP, f/1.9, with a focal length of 26mm (wide). The selfie camera does support Dual Pixel PDAF feature, having superior performance than PDAF.
There are many modes in the Samsung S10 camera, which are described below:
While some of the S10 camera modes do not show by default, you can activate it by selecting in the settings. So, you have control of which mode to show in your camera UI. With regular updates, they enabled the ultra-wide camera to use for several modes like Panorama, Night mode.
Regarding the video, S10 supports 4K UHD and FHD video capture at 60fps. There is also a video digital image stabilization for steady and smooth video capture. Normal video mode can take videos in selecting either of the three lenses. Apart from it, there are three other video modes.
Taking about all of the rear camera modes, the selfie pin-hole camera has just photo, Live focus, Video, and Instagram mode.
Here are some of the features in the S10 camera.
Regarding the Samsung S10 camera benchmarks, here is what DxO mark has on the camera benchmark scores. After testing 1500 images and 2 hours of videos in the lab and another environment, using camera UI default settings, they find the overall score of 109 together with Huawei Mate 20 pro. Samsung S10 gets a whopping 114 DxO mark for its better exposure, color and bokeh effect. Similarly, they have an excellent video score of 97, which means the phone shoots nicely exposed, good color-saturated and better dynamic range video.
