The Galaxy S21 camera settings are programmed to be alterable. Thus, you can change the default settings and replace some options to make the camera work according to your own preferences.

To access and manage the default camera settings, you will need to access the camera app’s main settings menu.

The following steps are also applicable to other Samsung Galaxy devices that are running on the same One UI or Android version with that of the Galaxy S21.

However, there might be some slight differences on the actual user interface given that screens and menu items vary between device models and carriers.

Just make sure that your phone is running on the latest software version.

Whenever you’re all set to configure your device, you may go ahead and proceed with these steps.
Step 1: Open the Camera app by tapping on the Camera icon on the Home screen or Apps viewer.

Step 3: From the Camera settings menu, scroll down to the bottom section and then tap Reset settings.
