The Galaxy S10 has an ultra-wide angle lens. It gets so much into the frame, but if you have the scene optimizer turned on colors and saturation are pumped up to the extreme. There's also some distortion because of the ultra-wide perspective.
But just look how much of the surrounds you can get into the shots.
Portrait mode on the S10 works like portrait mode on many other phones, except it uses both the wide and super-wide lenses to give a different perspective.
This shot was taken at the same time and from the same perspective as the S10, but it's a tighter frame because the Pixel 3 only uses its one lens to create the effect.
Portrait mode on the S10 (called Live Focus) also works on nonhuman subjects like flowers.
Same as the Pixel 3. Except the blur is more pronounced on default settings.
The S10 has a scene optimizer that automatically adjusts the image to boost the subject that it detects (it has 30 scene types it can recognize). Colors look great, but compared to the Pixel 3 on the next slide things can look a little too over the top sometimes.
Colors on the Pixel 3 on default settings are more true to life, even with HDR features turned on.
Attention Instagrammers! You'll love the food mode on the S10 that adds selective blur and boosts colors.
The same photo on the Pixel 3 without food mode just looks boring.
Compare this to the Pixel 3 photo coming up next.
Indoor white balance is a little cooler here.
The Pixel 3 can almost see in the dark. This is a feature called Night Sight and it brings up so much more detail than the S10.
Called Bright Night, this mode is part of the scene optimizer. But it only comes on automatically and you can't toggle it manually like you can on the Pixel 3.
Another low light shot with Night Sight turned on.
With the scene optimizer turned on, Bright Night doesn't always activate when there's enough ambient light like in this photo.
