  • Choose the desired optimization level

This feature allows for customization of photo attributes such as sharpness, contrast, and brightness. For example, selecting the minimum level results in more natural-looking images, while the maximum level increases detail and sharpness, which is ideal for zoomed-in shots. Notably, the quality optimization setting of these levels only affects Photo Mode.

If you enable Scene Optimizer, it automatically optimizes the color and contrast of pictures to make dark scenes look brighter, food looks tastier and landscapes look more vivid.

Galaxy’s Hotspot is unwell in One UI 6.1, Samsung pushes software fix

Samsung One UI 6.1 hotspot issue

Samsung Galaxy users have recently reported a change in the behavior of the mobile hotspot feature. Following the One UI 6.1 software update, the hotspot does not automatically activate in certain situations. This problem especially occurs when using Secure Folder or dual messenger functions.

The Korean tech giant has officially recognized this concern and confirms that the automatic hotspot feature may be interrupted under these specific conditions (secure folder, dual messenger). The company is preparing a solution for it and expects to release it in the next update.

However, they assure users that the hotspot can still be operated manually. Users can activate the hotspot without any hassle by going into the Settings menu. To turn on the hotspot manually, open Settings >> Connections >> Mobile Hotspot & Tethering >> Mobile Hotspot >> Turn it on.

Samsung is likely to address this in subsequent updates, but for now, manual activation is the quick fix. This temporary measure ensures continuous connectivity for Galaxy users until a more permanent solution is released.
