Towards the end of 2021, Samsung finally released a dedicated mobile app that gave users more control over their Galaxy phones’ camera settings, called Expert RAW. As with most apps, it was a little rocky to launch, but the tech giant has been working steadily to polish it.

Although he had more than a few problems when he arrived, the Expert RAW app has been warmly welcomed by many mobile photography enthusiasts. Well, by many we mean those who owned a Galaxy S21 Ultra, as it was – and still is for now – the only Samsung phone to support the app.

the Expert RAW’s first major update (version 1.0.00.16) was back in December and brought big improvements in both image quality and UI design. However, there was still room for improvement.

Well-known and trusted leaker ice universe has released a new version of the app (version 1.0.00.21) which should fix several annoying bugs, while adding new functionality.

Bug fixes in the new Expert RAW update

  • Shutter speed information – there was a bug with shutter speed information when capturing long exposure images for more than 2 seconds
  • Poor image quality when shooting bright or saturated objects should no longer be present
  • Bad pixel issue when shooting with phone’s telephoto lens
  • Voice command bug in Expert RAW app settings menu

Getting bug fixes and performance improvements is always good news, regardless of the software. However, Samsung doesn’t stop there. Turns out the update is even juicier than that, as it also adds a new feature called High-Efficiency RAW. an SD card slot, functionality such as High-Efficiency RAW. RAW efficiency can work wonders. This is a more economical RAW format that will save some of that space on your phone. However, it is still unknown if and to what extent the quality of the images will be degraded.
