Hardware is only as good as the software that can take advantage of it. This means that even if your phone packs the greatest hardware ever invented by humans, if the software is bad, it kind of ruins the experience. This is what many Galaxy S21 owners were experiencing when they found that their very powerful and very expensive smartphone was experiencing lagging and stuttering issues with the camera.
Thankfully, it looks like it did not take Samsung too long to fix the issue. If you’re living in the US, then you might want to keep an eye out for a new update. In this update, Samsung should have fixed the lagging and stuttering camera issues, so if you are annoyed with these problems then hopefully this update will deal with that.
If for whatever reason your phone was not affected by the camera lag, you should still update your phone anyway. This is because this update, in addition to fixing the phone’s camera problems, will also introduce other improvements and fixes, and also comes with the latest security patch.
We’re also looking at improvements to existing features like Portrait Mode, memory usage optimizations when zooming in, and more. The update has also brought about a new feature that makes it easier to scan and recognize QR codes from images stored in your photo gallery.
