The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a great camera although it is far from claiming to be the best smartphone camera. Samsung really has to step up its game with its next flagship. Meanwhile, developers have found a way to improve the camera features on Samsung’s current flagship, the Galaxy S10.

It turns out that there are a few that you can enable more for features on the Galaxy S10 camera. Keep reading to unlock Galaxy S10 hidden camera features with a simple hack.

Features

That’s right, the Camera app on the Galaxy S10 can do a lot more than the Samsung does. For example, there is currently no way to manually select any of the scenes from the scene optimizer.

This is automatic and may not always be what you want. Another example is how you can only shoot a Super Slo-mo video once per video. These restrictions don’t make sense and removing them would certainly be a great feature.

Well, it turns out that you can activate both of these features. The Galaxy S10 camera uses the camera-feature.xml file which is stored in the system directory. Twitter user Edd shared a modified camera-feature.xml file that can be replaced with the original file.

The file contains the code needed to activate additional features on the Galaxy S10 camera. This saves you time typing or even copying and pasting code in a file.
