    I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with their pictures not looking that great. I traded my note 3 for this s5 because the camera was supposed to be better quality but my pics look blurry and the pictures don't seem to have a good/rich quality. I have it on the 16 mega pixel setting. I've tried to YouTube but I can't find anything for the quality.. please help!

    Make sure the protective film has been removed from the lens of the camera. Both of them.

    I checked them both and they have been.. I'm wondering if there is a setting that is supposed to be set that isnt. I have it on auto.. I wonder if it should be on beauty face or something different?

    I'm using Auto, and have HDR turned OFF.

    You must hold the camera/phone rock solid like a brick on concrete to use it in HDR mode. It is taking a lot of different "snap shots" and then averaging all of the pixels to get the absolute sharpest pix possible.

    Great if you are using a tripod, or setting the phone on a solid wall or stone.

    Not so good, if you are hand holding it...

    I haven't tried anything in HD yet. I was trying to snapchat a pic of my TV in the dark and it seemed to have a hazy glow around it so the pic wasn't clear...
