Love sharing photos with your friends and family? You may want to consider picking up a Samsung Galaxy S10 phone, the newest in Samsung's Galaxy line. It has an extremely powerful camera, and Samsung has partnered with Instagram to include a new camera mode built to quickly edit and upload directly to Instagram. How to Use Galaxy S10's Instagram Mode Instagram mode comes with the Galaxy S10; open the Camera app and you can edit your photos to be Instagram-worthy in seconds. Once you open the Camera app, you'll be able to choose Instagram as a camera mode, just like how you can change to panoramic views or snap pictures of specific types. After you take a picture when in Instagram Mode, you have access to a wide variety of Instagram's photo tools. Edit photos, add stickers, text, and hashtags, and publish it directly to your Instagram Story. How Good Is the Galaxy S10 Instagram Mode? This was a feature many people were asking for, so it seemed doubtful it would be able to live up to expectations. And, like many new features, there are some things left to be desired from the S10's Instagram Mode. Alexander Spatari / Getty Images Samsung and Instagram both suggested the ultra-powerful S10 camera would integrate directly into the Instagram app, providing the clearest high-resolution photos possible with no fuss or time needed. Out of the box, it seems this isn't the case. Many S10 users were disappointed Instagram Mode didn't utilize the highest resolution the S10's camera is capable of, and instead photos looked like they were taken with older generation phones. Samsung has been quick to respond and has already introduced a few fixes to improve Instagram Mode. However, in some cases, taking regular pictures and adding them to your Instagram story the old fashioned way might be your best option. Is the Galaxy S10 Instagram Mode Worth It? Since this was one of the most highly-touted features of the new S10 devices, it's likely Samsung will work out the kinks and determine what people want from Instagram Mode. As this is an official partnering between Samsung and Instagram, they'll likely want to work together to make it a positive experience, and reports already indicate the mode is trending in that direction. Overall, if Instagram is your primary form of social media, the S10 seems like a good option. It has the full backing of Samsung and Facebook (Instagram's parent company), so the photo mode will surely become a great feature in the near future. However, if Instagram is more of a hobby for you, you'll probably barely notice how photos just aren't quite as sharp as they can be.
