tips on how to properly take pictures with your smartphone

If you like to take pictures with the camera of your favorite Samsung Galaxy S5, S6 or other smartphone, then you probably know that it is not always possible to take a photo of normal quality. Unfortunately, cameras also in the most top-end gadgets do not yet reach full-fledged soap dishes.

The tips below are more suitable for beginners and amateurs in photography, but from my own experience I know that these include 90% of smartphone owners.

Do not use ZOOM. In modern smartphones, the use of even the smallest zooming leads to a sharp deterioration in picture quality. Noises appear on it and sharpness is lost. If you want to take a closer picture of an object, go to it. If this is not possible, take pictures without zoom, in the end you can simply cut out the fragment you need from a large photo. And remember, the closer the object is, the better and the detail it will come out in the picture.

Keep your smartphone lens clean. Try not to scratch the lens of your gadget, and also to rub it with a cloth before taking a photo.

Take some photos. Even professional photographers always take several photos, take an example.

Often times, you can get blurry photos due to poor focus or the slightest twitching of the hand while shooting. Taking a series of photos, you can always choose the most optimal one, and delete the rest. Especially when you consider that the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and Galaxy S4 have excellent burst function.

Lighting. Normal pictures can only be obtained in good lighting conditions. If you decide to arrange a small photo session with your friends, then it is better to do it during the day and on the street. Also, don’t forget if the light source is in front of the lens, turn on HDR mode.

But do not take pictures in the open sun and in deep shadow, also try to avoid contrasting light transitions.

Set the “Resolution” and “Image Quality” settings to the highest. Don’t skimp on photo size if you want the best quality.

Make the most of your camera. In the camera settings of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, there are many different settings for all occasions. Feel free to use them.

For example, when shooting close-ups, switch to “macro” in the “focus mode” tab. Sometimes it is useful to manually set the white balance.

Also pay attention to the “Plot” tab. Try to select the item that suits you depending on the situation. For example, “night mode” automatically raises the ISO to its maximum, and makes better visibility when shooting at night.

Edit photos. In Photoshop and other graphic editors, you can smooth out the noise a little, adjust the brightness / contrast, add beautiful effects.

Try not to shake hands when taking pictures. This is very important, especially in the latest Samsung models such as the Galaxy S6, which uses a fairly slow default shutter speed for better post-processing.

Use third party camera apps. Fortunately, this can be done on Android. Usually, third-party cameras such as Camera 360 for example have a large number of options that are hidden in the standard application. This is especially true for Nexus smartphones, where camera settings are always very limited.

Practice. Read literature on photography, practice yourself. Understand how optics work, what is exposure, ISO, aperture, shutter speed. After all, even the most expensive DSLR will not make you a pro, and vice versa, a real photographer will get good pictures from a smartphone. An example is the interesting article “40 stunning photos taken with a smartphone.”.

Video recording

All things considered, the Galaxy A32 5G has been as good as or a bit worse in the camera department compared to the vanilla Galaxy A32. Pretty justifiable, given the hardware downgrade. All, of course, for the sake of fitting 5G connectivity without breaking the bank.

An interesting consequence of squeezing in the MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chipset into the Galaxy A32 5G is, however, the availability of 4K video capture. A feature that the vanilla Galaxy A32 notably lacks, topping off at FullHD. It’s a bit counterintuitive to think about, for sure, yet here we are.

The Galaxy A32 5G can record 4K @ 30fps from its main camera in either h.264 of h.265 (HEVC) format. Going for the former for its lower compression rate results in MP4 files with a solid AVC video stream of around 50 Mbps and stereo, 48kHz AAC audio. Not too shabby at all.

The video itself is naturally a lot better than the 1080p on the regular Galaxy A32. In fact, even in more absolute terms, 4K clips from the A32 5G look surprisingly competent. Detail is plenty, and the colors look good, even if a bit on the saturated side. Dynamic range isn’t ideal, with highlights in particular often getting clipped. There is a bit more noise in finer patterns, like grass, than we would have preferred. Nothing major, though and overall a great all-around showing.

You can do zoomed videos, with 2x, 4x and 10x presets available in the UI, just like for stills. The footage quickly becomes soft as the zoom level goes up, though. We would say that 2x is usable, but anything past that is more “artist rendition”, courtesy of the algorithm than actual footage.

Videos from the ultrawide camera look very rough. Especially in comparison. The maximum resolution here is 1080p @ 30fps, as is typical of ultrawides. Even for FullHD, though, the level of detail here is low. Plus, there is a general softness all around the frame. Dynamic range is quite visibly limited, with shadows suffering in particular, since the A32 5G tends to underexpose its ultrawide videos and produce dark clips.

At least colors aren’t all that bad. Though, definitely different from those on the main cam. And noise is kept at bay reasonably well. But that’s about all of the positives we can see. We would shy away from using the ultrawide for any sort of video.

Electronic stabilization is available at 1080p for both the main and the ultrawide camera. You can check both in the following playlist.

It has notable issues in both cases, though. For the ultrawide, it tends to leave a lot of the motion and jitters behind. The main camera seems to be doing a bit better in this department, but for some reason, EIS often introduces nasty FOCUS-hunting, which looks just as bad as the other camera jitter, if not worse. Overall, we are underwhelmed by the available stabilization.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G review

A slightly-downgraded quad-camera setup

The main camera setup on the Galaxy A32 5G unfortunately also follows the persistent “downgrade” trend. That is to say, compared to its vanilla A32 sibling. 5G on a slim budget takes its toll again. To be fair, though, the downgrade isn’t too harsh, with the main change being the main camera on the back. The selfie cam is also a bit cut-down.

samsung, galaxy, camera, setup

At the helm of the Galaxy A32 5G we find a 48MP, f / 1.8 camera. It is based on the Samsung S5KGM2 sensor, also known as the ISOCELL Bright GM. It’s a Tetrapixel design (used to be called Tetracell in Samsung speak, Sony calls them Quad Bayer), with 0.8µm individual pixels and a total sensor size of 1 / 2.0 “. It works in the traditional Quad-Bayer manner, using 4- to-1 binning to produce brighter 12MP photos, by default. Alternatively, it can use remosaicing algorithms to shoot in the full 48MP resolution for more detail. The S5KGM2 has phase detection autofocus. In particular, it uses something Samsung calls “Super-PD “which is a high-performance variant of the phase. There is no OIS. The GM2, as it is colloquially known, is actually a popular sensor, found in many other Samsung devices, as well as Xiaomi ones, and we feel pretty confident in its abilities.

Moving on to the ultrawide camera, the Galaxy A32 5G appears to borrow it straight from the vanilla A32. At 8MP, it’s the nearly perfect middle ground between the ones on the A12 (5MP) and the A52 (13MP). It uses a 1/4 “sensor with 1.0µm pixels and an f / 2.2 aperture lens covering a 123-degree field of view. The OS features a” sr846d “model identifier for the particular sensor, which yields no search results in Google. There’s no software distortion correction on this one, just like there wasn’t on the A12. The A52 does have it, though.

Moving on to the two “supplementary” cameras on the back, so to say, we first have a 5MP dedicated macro snapper. It uses a GalaxyCore GC5035 sensor, with fixed FOCUS and an f / 2.4 aperture lens up front.

Last and probably least. a 2MP, f / 2.4 depth sensor. As per the reported hardware identifier, this is another GalaxyCore module. the GC02M1B. It is a monochrome 1/5 “sensor, with 1.75µm pixels. We’ve seen this unit as well in devices like the OnePlus 8T and the Poco M3 Pro 5G.

Finally, on the selfie side of things, the Galaxy A32 5G downgrades from the 20MP snapper on its vanilla sibling to a 13MP, f / 2.2 one. It uses a Samsung ISOCELL S5K3L6 sensor, which the official specs page claims to support PDAF, but is definitely fixed-FOCUS on the Galaxy A32 5G.

samsung, galaxy, camera, setup

The camera app on the A32 5G is the latest one you get with One UI 3.1, the biggest improvement being the relocation of the video resolution to the viewfinder. Other than that, it’s the same as on any other Samsung pre-One UI 3.1, which is a good thing since it’s straightforward and easy to use.

The basics are as usual. swiping left and right will switch between available modes, and there’s an option to re-arrange, add or remove some of the modes from the viewfinder. Vertical swipes in either direction will switch between front and rear cameras.

The familiar tree designation for zoom control is here too, and with no telephoto on board, you get three trees for ultra-wide and two trees for the main cam. You could zoom in with a pinch gesture, at which point additional preset zoom levels appear at 2x, 4x, and 10x.

The viewfinder has the standard set of icons with the settings cog wheel located in the upper left corner of the screen. The usual stuff like grid lines, location data, etc., can be found in the menu.

There’s a Pro mode, but it’s the very basic implementation that only lets you pick ISO (100-800) and white balance (by light temperature with icons for common light sources), as well as dial in exposure compensation (-2EV to 2EV in 0.1EV increments). A metering mode selector also made the cut (center-weighted, matrix and spot). There’s no manual focusing option, sadly. The Galaxy A52 and A72 have more Pro controls at their disposal.

Speaking of missing things, Pro video also didn’t make the cut. What is present, however, is Samsung’s new integration with Snapchat, called FUN MODE. It is basically a collaboration with Snapchat that puts some of the app’s fun AR filters in the native Samsung camera app. It’s just a bit of extra trendy “flare” to have around.

FUN MODE works for both photos and videos (captured by long-pressing the shutter key). The filter selection consists of 7 “basic” lenses, one of which gets changed out daily, as well as an additional menu of 9 more effects that also get “changed regularly”.

Additional FUN MODE filters

FUN MODE requires an active network connection to work, which makes sense, considering all the “swapping” that’s going on. Seeing how the filter selection is constantly subject to change, you can’t exactly pick your favorites and use them regularly. Hence, the whole feature is more of a promotional one than anything else, meant to ultimately grab your attention and direct you to the Snapchat app for the full experience. We don’t particularly mind that, even if the lack of a static filter selection is a bit annoying.

Daylight image quality

Still shots from the main camera are very good overall. Like we said, the Samsung GM2 sensor has proven its worth time and time again, and it definitely does not disappoint when paired with Samsung’s solid processing. Detail in the 12MP shots is plenty, and everything looks nice and sharp. Well, perhaps with the exception of the very extreme corners of the frame, which can be slightly softer on occasion.

Colors are nice and vibrant, without being oversaturated. Samsung has been known to crank the saturation way more in the past, making this kind of processing a bit more mature. There are no weird color casts. Dynamic range, too, is respectable, though not quite as wide as on higher-end models. We should point out that these shots were taken in the default camera mode, with Scene optimizer and Auto HDR enabled. Both kick in reliably and consistently, and we see no reason to disable either.

In fact, you can easily see how much of a difference these additional computational systems make when shooting in 48MP mode. Neither is available in this mode, and it shows, especially in scenes with more complicated lighting. You can clearly see highlights and shadows look a lot better in the default 12MP auto mode in general.

48MP shots, however, definitely offer more resolved detail. If that is a priority for you and individual files of over 20MB in size are not a problem, then go for it. You do have to live with a bit more noise, as well.

There is no dedicated zoom camera on the Galaxy A32 5G. What you get are crops from the main 64MP sensor. You can pinch to zoom at any level you want up to 10x, with convenient buttons for 2x, 4x and 10x available in the camera UI. At 2x level, you’ll get good enough images for social sharing, with the same global properties as 1x. Upon 1: 1 examination, you’ll see some sharpening halos along contrasting edges and aliasing for diagonal lines, as well as reduced per-pixel detail.

Sharpening artifacts are much more noticeable with higher zoom levels. The max 10x one is not what we would consider usable. Still, we’ve seen a lot worse out of digital zoom.

Before we move past the main camera, we need to also look at portrait mode shots. These pretty great for a budget device. The background bokeh effect is particularly nice. You can adjust its intensity via a slider in the camera UI.

Subject detection and separation are good but could be better. Stray hairs and busier backgrounds can trip it up. That being said, the dedicated 2MP depth sensor seems to be pulling its own weight here, so we can’t complain too much. Auto HDR is available in portrait mode.

The algorithm also works well on non-human subjects, which is nifty.

The modest 8MP ultrawide shooter delivers decent images. The level of detail is okay for the hardware. Dynamic range, too, isn’t half bad for a mid-range ultrawide. Colors are not particularly consistent across the ultrawide and main cameras. Colors are not particularly consistent across the ultrawide and main cameras.

The lack of software distortion correction on the ultrawide camera is two-fold. you get extra wide coverage, but with prominently warped corners and straight lines along the edges. That last bit could be of use for creative purposes, but we’d still prefer to have the option to enable correction in software.

Here is a set of shots of the same scene at various zoom levels, as well as from the ultrawide for easier comparison purposes.

The 5MP ‘macro’ camera of the Galaxy A32 5G takes some of the better close-ups in the budget segment, in no small part thanks to the resolution advantage against the bulk of 2MP units. You still need to get the subject distance within a reasonably tight range due to the lack of autofocus.

The 13MP selfie camera captures very decent photos, especially for a budget phone. There is no autofocus available, but the fixed FOCUS plane is decently wide, so most selfies end up fine. The resolved detail is great, and we quite like the warm color rendition for skin tones.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 13MP selfie camera samples

The Scene optimizer is not available for the selfie cam, but auto HDR is helping deliver a nicely wide dynamic range for these shots.

In typical Samsung fashion, the selfie cam has a narrow and a wide mode. The latter shoots at the full 13MP of the selfie camera, while the former produces 9MP, or so, stills.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 9MP selfie camera samples

We appreciate that the option is there, but would still prefer if Samsung made 13MP selfies the default, out of the box. At least you can set the camera app to remember your last selection and restore it when opening the camera app, which is something.

The Galaxy A32 5G produces surprisingly-competent selfie portraits. The background bokeh continues to look natural and convincing, just like on the main cam.

Subject separation is not half bad either, especially since there is not additional depth sensor on this side. Of course, stray hairs and things like glasses will almost definitely trip it up. But, that’s all expected.

Low-light camera quality

In low-light conditions, the main camera on the Galaxy A32 5G offers largely unimpressive performance, though still perfectly decent for a budget device. Shots are generally soft and noisy, and dynamic range is narrow. Detail in shadows gets crushed more often than not, and light sources are often clipped.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 12MP main camera low-light samples

To be fair, we’ve seen worse, even from other Samsung devices. You can get plenty of resolved detail, especially if you are patient and persistent enough and get a few shots in.

Speaking of detail, the traditional reasoning for using 48MP mode to get more detail kind of falls apart in low-light conditions. Even with the extra resolution, shots still come out looking similarly soft. Not much benefit in our opinion.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 48MP main camera low-light samples

Zooming with the main camera quickly degrades overall sharpness and level of detail. We would say that past 2x, shots are more of a painting, courtesy of the sharpening and noise suppression systems than anything else.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G zoom samples: 2x 4x 10x

Predictably, the ultrawide cam does not perform at its best after dark. At dusk, it will take barely usable shots, with noise evident even at fit to screen magnification. At night, it can’t expose bright enough to develop any shadows and has a narrow dynamic range, so your highlights will be clipped as well.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 8MP ultrawide camera low-light samples

The Galaxy A32 5G has Night mode for both its main and ultrawide cameras. Starting with the main cam, the effects of night mode are on the subtle side, but definitely noticeable and beneficial. Mostly for dynamic range and handling highlights in particular. Light sources are handles consistently better, and most highlights are no longer clipped.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 12MP main camera night mode samples

Shadows get a bit of a boost as well, but not nearly as much. The really encouraging bit is that Night mode works much better on the Galaxy A32 5G, compared to the vanilla A32, back when we reviewed it. In its earlier state, the algorithm had plenty of issues, including crashing and just boosting exposure all around the frame instead of selectively. This is not the case here. Night mode is working as intended.

The ultrawide cam benefits from night mode in a very similar and subtle way as the main cam. That is to say. the overall exposure remains mostly unchanged, shadows and details within just get a slight boost, and it’s the highlights and light sources that really benefit.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G: 8MP ultrawide camera night mode samples

Given that night mode on the A32 5G is not terribly slow, as well, and never actually managed to make a shot worse for us, we can’t ask much more of it.

The selfie cam holds up reasonably well in low-light conditions, though shots are quite soft and noisy overall.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G selfie low-light samples: 13MP 9MP

Night mode is just as subtle and consistent on the selfie cam as on the main ones. It tends to just come in and fix highlights and light sources a bit.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G selfie night mode samples: 13MP 9MP

Finally, we took a few low-light videos with the Galaxy A32 5G. The main cam actually holds up very well. It can capture 4K @ 30fps, with plenty of detail and noise kept well at bay. Of course, dynamic range is far from ideal, and both shadows and highlights suffer. All low-light samples are in the following playlist.

We are also including ultrawide and zoom video samples in the low-light playlist. All of these clips are not what we would consider usable, due to insufficient details and excessive softness. One noteworthy detail regarding zoomed low-light video capture is that the Galaxy A32 5G limits resolution to 1080p for some reason. Or at least we didn’t manage to get 4K zoomed, low-light clips. Not that the extra resolution would have likely made much of a difference.

Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 Shooting Modes and Interface Tour

Customize your Samsung camera with HDR

The HDR (high dynamic range) option changes the ratio between light and dark images in real time. This allows us to achieve realism in the color rendition of the images we receive. When activated, your Samsung phone takes three shots at different exposures and then blends them together to create the most realistic image possible.

We recommend using HDR for landscape shots, low-light shots, shots with lots of sunlight. Wherever the light source is, you should use HDR for optimal results.

Picture size

To set up the correct camera on your Samsung, you need to specify the size of the future photo. Increasing the size will improve its quality, but will make the photo file larger. Downgrade. will reduce the potential file size, but also worsen the level of the photo.

Aspect Ratio

Aspect Ratio shows the horizontal to vertical aspect ratio of the photo. For example, a 16: 9 ratio corresponds to a wide 1080p screen. If you are interested in the 4: 3 ratio (old TV formats) or 1: 1 (square size), then you can also select the specified option in the settings.


With this option, you can set the delay time between pressing the shutter button and the actual shooting. Usually options available in 2, 5, 10 seconds.

Camera functions on Samsung smartphones

Of course, there are a great many models of Samsung smartphones, and each of these models has its own specifics of phone camera settings. But the vast majority of such cameras have the following basic settings, which we will discuss below.

Location Tags

Thanks to this option, GPS tags will be added to each image you take. If you are concerned about your privacy, then this option should be disabled on Samsung.

Voice control

This option makes it possible to take pictures by saying a key phrase. For example, it could be “Cheese”, “Smile”, “Record video”. after which they take a picture or start recording a video.

Shooting Moving Subjects

Have you ever tried clicking on pictures of babies and toddlers? If you haven’t already, know that this is not an easy task. Fortunately, the Galaxy S21 series cameras have a switch to make this job easier.

Go to Settings and scroll down until you see Tracking Autofocus. From now on, your smartphone’s camera will keep the subject in focus no matter how it moves.

Samsung Galaxy 21 Ultra Camera Features Overview Camera App Settings

Smartphones are more than just a microcomputer. Most of the latest flagships are equipped with a professional camera. The Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 also include great features for taking stunning photos. But, as you know, the guarantee that you will take great photos is not only the technical specifications of the smartphone camera unit. You also need to adjust your camera settings to get the most out of the camera app. This article shows some of the best Samsung s21 camera settings and secrets to taking great photos.

There are many techniques and techniques that can help you improve your mobile photography skills. One of the simplest techniques is to use a grid dividing the display into zones when using a smartphone camera. This allows the use of a compositional technique. the rule of thirds. If you want to focus on an object, make sure it is at the intersection of the lines.

However, if you already have mobile photography skills, you can take a free style, taking pictures as you understand the scene, framing the shot in the post later. Another point is that you should check if your device has professional mode.

Pro mode allows you to adjust ISO, aperture, Focus and shutter speed, which is necessary for example in landscape photography or macro photography.

Use Cinema Mode

The Samsung Galaxy S21 camera has a variety of video recording modes, and Cinema mode is one of them.

This mode gives you more control over the videos you shoot, allowing you to record videos with the front and rear cameras working simultaneously. Wow effect guaranteed. This mode is especially useful for bloggers filming with a smartphone.

To activate it, select from the ribbon below and tap the Movie Mode view. All you have to do is start filming. These are the best s21 camera settings great for vlogger.

Change your skin tone

Do you prefer warm colors in your selfies? For this case, the Galaxy S21 has a setting. You can choose from two color tones: bright (warm) and natural (colder), so you don’t have to waste time changing the color temperature in post-processing.

Change your camera mode to selfie mode and go to Settings. Once inside, scroll down until you see the selfie color tone option. Tap it to select your preferred option.


One of the s21’s best tricks for getting great shots is knowing how to use the multi-frame. This is one of the coolest features in Samsung Galaxy smartphones. In the Galaxy S21’s multi-shot function, you can adjust the recording time.

For example, if you want a shooting mode to complete in 5 seconds, this is perfectly doable. To do this, tap the timer icon in the lower right corner. Then drag the slider to the right. You can of course increase the time to 15 seconds. Now all you have to do is press the shutter button and you will see the magic come to life.

At the same time, you can also select the modes you want to activate when taking single shots. For example, if you don’t want to filter your video, you can turn it off.

Thus, unnecessary videos will not be left in the phone memory.

Take beautiful vertical or horizontal panoramas

The Galaxy S21’s camera is smart enough. In addition to conventional panoramas, it can also be used to create vertical panoramas. Fortunately, you don’t need to make any special configuration changes. All you have to do is select a panorama mode and then press the capture button to move the camera vertically. The smartphone detects in which direction the camera is moving automatically.

Use different perspectives

Taking photos from a unique and unexpected angle can make them more memorable. this tends to create the illusion of depth or height in your subjects.

Focus on one subject

Many of the best photographs contain only one interesting plot point. Therefore, spend a little more time getting ready to shoot. Some professional photographers argue that the subject should not fill the entire frame and that two-thirds of the photo should be in negative space, which makes the subject even more visible.

Tap the smartphone screen to focus the camera on the subject. this will keep it in focus and optimize exposure.

Expert tip: After shooting, you can use filters and apps to brighten the subject, or crop it to compose it correctly. The brightness, contrast and saturation of the photo can also be adjusted accordingly in the app on the smartphone.
