Android Pie has been released for Samsung Galaxy S9 and it has brought some cool features for cameras. The interface isn’t much different from what the older Android 8.1 Oreo had to offer but still there are some key changes. One change in particular, is associated with camera app and might not be liked by everyone.
With Android Pie, the camera now has a dedicated mode for shooting videos. This is something similar to how iPhone record videos. The direct record button from Oreo is now replace with an extra option of choose camera from front or back side before starting to record videos. The goal of this change might be giving an advantage to users who want to use front camera for videos.
The camera app always open in the last shooting mode which is another inconvenience. As the One UI is still in the beta mood, I hope Samsung would consider the feedback from users and replace it with something convenient and user friendly. Apart from only this one feature, Android Pie Update brought some really amazing features like Scene optimizer and flaw detection. Optimizer will automatically detect the scene and selects the appropriate color and tone settings to make the image more pleasing and elegant. Samsung One UI has 20 types of scenery including food, flowers, animals, landscape and more.
Flaw detection brings great imagery results. It tells you if you have missed something which taking picture like if a person in the pic just blinked at the moment you click or it detects camera smudges or movement. You can retake the picture without losing the moment. Flaw detection works great on Galaxy Note 9 and it should work on Galaxy S9 as well. If you haven’t register to test the One UI beta program, it’s time to do it now. It has limited number of slots to do it before it closes for more entries. You can try these camera features and see if you like these or not?
