So you got your brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge and went straight to test out that fantastic new camera everyone has been saying is the best camera on a smartphone to date? Are the pictures perhaps not as clear as you thought they would be? There is a simple fix!

Samsung ship their Galaxy S6 and S6 edge with a plastic protective casing on the camera lens glass and heart rate monitor/camera flash. The plastic is so thin and discrete that many do not realise it’s even there.

So when you receive your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, don’t forget to carefully remove the plastic covering the camera components to get the maximum performance from your new device.

Told you it was a simple fix!

  1. This wasn’t the issue for me as I had already removed the protective film from both the lens and the heart rate monitor/flash. I found someone else who had the problem and suggested shaking the phone when this happens and it actually works!
