Samsung’s cameras needed a major upgrade — the Galaxy S20 brings it

Samsung’s cameras have fallen behind, but there’s plenty to get excited about for 2020.

I just finished writing up a re-review of the Galaxy S10+ after one year, and one of the biggest things that struck me is that the camera is a true weak point of that phone. Everything else in the hardware, specs, display, features and even software feel modern and good — the camera is, frankly, a disappointment by the latest standards. In a world where the Pixel 4 exists, the bar is so high for phone cameras, and Samsung just wasn’t advanced enough when the S10 series came out to really hang with the pack as other 2019 phones launched.
