Instagram works worse on Android than it does on iOS, which we tested a few years ago and continues to do so no matter how much time passes. There have been many attempts to improve this, such as the case of Samsung with its Galaxy S10 with Instagram mode. Years later, the Korean giant returns to focus on social networks, in this case with its Samsung Galaxy S22 family.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 and the S22+ and S22 Ultra will integrate native camera functionality on Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat. Although the compression problem when downloading files is still inherent in Android, it is a good way to make the loss of quality less noticeable.

The best camera features of the S22, in your social networks

Samsung will work with TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat to integrate its native camera features into the social media camera. We will be able to use the night mode directly in the RRSS, which until now was not possible with any other phone. The telephoto lens will also be integrated, so we will change the sensor when zooming.

When opening the Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat camera, we will have several of the native functions of the Samsung camera app

Samsung’s own portrait mode algorithms will also be applied (not Instagram’s or Snapchat’s, which are pretty bad), as well as Samsung’s autofocus system, a very significant improvement when recording video from anyone’s camera from these apps. This enhancement will come natively, so all you have to do is open one of these apps to take advantage of the built-in features.

The positive side is that when downloading content we will have additional tools compared to other phones, especially in video recording with native portrait and autofocus, crucial to improve the final quality.

On the other hand, compression on Android is always aggressive, and when downloading videos and photos, there will always be a loss of quality. However, this is an important integration that will make S22 devices more focused on content creation.
