Can we agree that this thing is a disaster (the camera)?


It probably has the best main camera and certainly the best telephoto camera of any phone.

rubbish, the p30 pro beats it at 5X optical zoom

No way, no how.

The P30 pro has a 14.5mm lens with an 8MP sensor behind it with 1 micron pixels working out to 253 pixels per degree.

The S20 Ultra has a 19mm lens with a 48MP sensor behind it with 0.8 micron pixels working out to 415 pixels per degree.

your obsession that more pixels equals better IQ is just not fact! its more about processing and quality of the lens etc, especially in phones, where we have already shown in another thread that the S20U processing is poor,leading to smeary jpegs, a 200mp sensor wont help with that!

, the Ultra did a bit better at 4X optical and no one cares about digital zoom which is a waste.

It's a waste on the P30 pro because it's only got that 8MP sensor. On the Ultra, 48MP is quite croppable.

The periscope camera on the S20 ultra wipes the floor with all others, and I've tested it myself and it's a solid performer.

look at the results, at 5X see below, first crop is S20U, 2nd crop is P30 Pro easy to see a 8MP sensor beating a 48mp one, cos its more about the processing, and Samsung processing is poor.
