Samsung started 2020 with a bang, launching the Galaxy S10 Lite. This exquisitely designed smartphone is an exceptional offering and the excitement in the market for its launch is palpable! The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is the all-new Super Steady OIS hardware that will let you finally bid adieu to shaky and blurry videos and photos! But that’s just one thing that makes Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite the perfect smartphone for photographers. From wide-angle shots that capture everything the eye can see, to macro shots that maintains focus on the subject like never before, this smartphone is the perfect companion for all pro-grade shooters! That said, let’s take a look at some of the reasons we think the Galaxy S10 Lite is one of the best camera phones around.
All-new Super Steady OIS in-built hardware with 48MP primary camera
The rectangular housing on the back of the Galaxy S10 Lite hosts a triple camera cluster containing a 48MP main camera. This sensor is paired with the all-new Super Steady OIS that Samsung has debuted with the Galaxy S10 Lite. Super Steady OIS is a hardware implementation to deliver shake-free videos and photos by controlling the shakes. This ensures gimbal-like stability by compensating for jerks and shakes, which translates to professional-grade videos in UHD resolution — all without carrying a physical gimbal. In fact, the Super Steady OIS feature combines hardware and software wizardry to control shakes and jerks much more than any smartphone available in the market today! So pick up the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and say goodbye to shaky camerawork in your videos.
Just whip out the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and start shooting beautiful 48MP photos and videos, whether you are on a trek, on your daily jog, playing on the beach, or driving to your favourite hangout spot. It can handle tilt, roll, and pan shots with utmost ease and truly blows the competition out of the water! And you won’t even have to worry about overcast conditions or night scenes — Super Steady OIS works equally well in all situations. It can be especially tricky in lowlight conditions, when the camera shutter remains open for longer durations so that more light can enter — if the hand moves in this duration, the image can end up being blurry. But with Super Steady OIS, the jerkiness and shakes are taken care of even in long durations, so you will always get clear images and videos.
Astonishing groupfies and incredible macro shots
But it’s not just shake-free videos where the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite shines — it’s equally adept at capturing macro shots and wide-angle photos and videos. One of the cameras onboard the smartphone is reserved for clicking ultra-wide shots. This 12MP camera provides a completely new perspective on your subjects with its 123-degree wide view, the same as the visual field of the human eye. This means the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite camera can capture more than the human eye, making it perfect for the landscape shots, panoramas, group photos and so much more. So whether you want to capture a wide shot of nature in its full glory or a boomerang video with a beautiful background, Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will prove to be your best friend.
As for the third sensor, it’s a 5MP macro lens. Using this camera, you can get incredibly close to your subjects — even as close as 4cm — and capture highly detailed close-up shots. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite makes sure that the subject fills up the screen without the details being lost or shadows. DSLRs are truly a thing of the past with the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite!
Live Focus puts you at the centre in every shot
Live Focus Mode is another great feature photography fans will love in the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. This feature truly puts you front and centre of every shot! You can adjust the Bokeh effect in photos and videos using the slider in the Camera app, giving you total control over how the shots turn out, even before hitting the capture button. What makes the feature even better is that you can adjust the Bokeh effect not just on the rear camera but in selfies too. Wide-angle Bokeh? Not a problem! Bring all your friends in the same frame and blur the background and put the focus on your friendship. And even the background blur can be customised, with Live Focus offering effects such as Blur, Color Point, Big Circle, and the Glitch effect
Zoom-in Mic drowns out the noise to let you be heard
And then there’s Zoom-In Mic, which harnesses the power of the three mics on Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite to truly make your videos pro-grade. It’s an almost magical feature that allows you to use the zoom gesture to better capture the audio coming from your subject. The three mics can target the audio on the subject of the video to zero in on the subject and capture their voice while lowering the ambient noise — this helps filter out the background noise and truly puts you at the centre of the video! So whether you are with a group of friends or in a noisy area, Zoom-in Mic will pick up what you say, regardless of how loud it gets.
Other than the awesome capabilities of the Galaxy S10 Lite’s cameras, the other specifications of this device should not be ignored either. Powering the smartphone is the Snapdragon 855 chipset, the tried and tested beast from Qualcomm with 2.8GHz octa-core CPU and Adreno 640 GPU. Complementing this powerful chipset is up to 8GB RAM, guaranteeing swift performance for the heaviest of apps and games; making the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite a true powerhouse. Then there’s the 4,500mAh battery, which will easily last 2 days, thanks to the Intelligent battery optimisation. But that’s not all! With Super Fast Charging that the smartphone supports, even a 30-minute charge will ensure that you enjoy your day without a single thought about the battery life.
The powerful processor and battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is complemented by the large 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Full-HD+ Infinity-O display with in-display fingerprint scanner, 32MP selfie camera, Android 10-based One UI 2.0 software, and up to 1TB expandable storage support. These features combine to make the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite an excellent choice for those who want a top-of-the-line phone without putting a huge dent in their wallet. So what are you waiting for?
