S23 and S23+ camera: users complaining about permanently out of focus areas in pictures, banana shaped from GalaxyS23

According to the users, the 50MP rear camera on both smartphones appears to struggle with keeping the entire scene in focus. They said that while the centre of the scene appears sharp and focused, the photos are blurry on the sides and edges.


Citing Notebook Check, a report mentioned that the country of origin and manufacturing do not usually affect camera quality, so this may be a one-off issue that affects only some units. Some users said this was also a problem on the Galaxy S22 series, but it was not reported at the time. It is said that the Ultra models are unaffected, most likely due to a different camera setup. However, some users mentioned similar faulty issues in the top-end variant of the series.
