New devices often have bugs that go unnoticed before they’re released. It’s only when a lot of people start using it that these issues come to light. Only recently we’ve heard that One UI 5.1 has been wrecking the battery life on some Galaxy phones.
While older devices grapple with that bug, there also seems to be a bug on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It’s a weird camera stabilization issue and while difficult to address what’s causing it, no doubt it’s one that can easily be fixed through a software update.
Camera stabilization on the Galaxy S23 Ultra seems to be wonky
The Galaxy S23 Ultra is supposed to have excellent video stabilization and it really does. This bug is simply preventing it from working as intended. Video captured on the device has noticeably poorer stabilization, resulting in shaky footage.
The effect is also visible when capturing a photo but not as pronounced in portrait mode. Sometimes, it’s entirely opposite and the stabilization seems fine in video but not in photo mode. Resetting camera settings does seem to improve things but once you close and reopen the camera app, the problem reappears.
The device in question wasn’t dropped so physical damage isn’t believed to be a factor here. Unless this is an isolated event where there’s a problem with the camera sensor on that particular unit, all signs are pointing to a camera software bug. The user also feels that the device is now getting hotter when the camera is opened after they noticed this bug.
It’s difficult to say anything conclusively at this time but if more reports about similar issues appear, then it would be evident that this is widespread. Have you noticed this bug on your Galaxy S23 Ultra, or other Galaxy S23 models? Drop a comment below and let us know!
