Question

Samsung Galaxy s5 camera, help?

http://i60.tinypic.com/2hx3i4m.png

^ the link above contains a side by side shot. The left is from my camera. The right is from my boyfriend's camera. Both of us have Samsung Galaxy s5s. ALL of our settings are the same. My screen is polished. I spoke to a friend who is slightly tech savvy and said that even if purchased at the same time he may have better technology in his phone. Besides photo editing (which never guarantees a good outcome), is there a way to fix this? I'm really tired of my pictures turning out dull and washed out? Thanks!

I'd check for Easy mode and change it.

"For those of you that can't find the extra functions on your camera you need to go into the phones settings and find easy mode in personalisation, change it to standard mode. The layout of the phone will look totally different but you should be able to navigate easily enough. Now when you go into camera you will get the full functionality available. "

Since this is a phone, the settings can differ with carrier setups. I'd also try HDR shots.

It was on standard mode. HDR produced the same picture. Bummer. Thank you for responding, though!

Back to where you got it.

My bet is they'll have to swap the cell phone out to fix it.
