I'm taking night photos with my new s21 ultra and the flare coming from lights is too much. Really the light rays and beams shown in the images make it look like a very bad picture. Compared with the iPhone photos in exactly the same setting and place, the flare is much less noticeable. Could my S21 camera be faulty? I have tried cleaning the lenses several times, using it without a cover fyi.

Night mode is going to create a sort of flare that the processor is supposed to clear when you view the picture
I think you should shoot more night mode picture in different settings before you initiate any action regarding the lens
I toke a couple of pictures a few minutes ago
A bit of haze materialized
but it cleared up when I viewed the pictures

Sry maybe i explained wrongly. The photos are in the auto mode. I'll try to take more in different areas and try the night mode. But compared to my iphone 11 pro, the camera on the s21 ultra is very disappointing!

I'm an avid fan and user of the iPhone myself
I'll second your opinion without hesitation 😉

I'll try the camera on the auto mode & see if the problem is replicated
I'll get back to you ASAP

I guess nothing is wrong with our camera
Our pictures are quite similar on auto mode
Maybe we need to use manual mode & change the settings
I have to admit that this is the first time I've ever used the device's camera at night 😄

Can you post a sample photo where the is lights at night in auto mode and HDR on. It's really sad to see this result from Samsung s21 ultra when the main feature of this phone is its camera!!

I've deleted the ones I toke yesterday!
I'll take some more tonight and post them over here
It is sad indeed if the problem is real
It could be an adjustment of some sort we're not aware of
