We recently received an email through Mailbag which reads, “I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 light sensitivity problem. I face an issue while taking pictures in its camera, the over head light spreads a lot or it appears too bright. As a result the subject in my pictures sometimes appear to be bathed in a very bright light. I have attached an example of a picture taken with my Smartphone camera under fluorescent light.”

How to Fix Galaxy Note 2 Light Sensitivity
The Galaxy Note 2 light sensitivity issue can be easily fixed by adjusting your camera configuration particularly its ISO. According to Sprint, ISO determines the sensitivity of your camera to the available light in its environment.
The Galaxy Note 2 has configuration for its ISO ranging from Auto or Manual, wherein the latter offers adjustments like 100, 200, 400 and 800. Basically, the lower is the ISO of your camera, the less sensitive it is too light. Thus, when it is to its maximum, natural or artificial lighting sometimes appear to be too bright which bathes the subject of your photo in it.
Although the camera of the device is capable of adjusting its ISO automatically with the Auto setting, it will not always ensure a balanced lighting. So, if your photo appears to be too bright due to the Galaxy Note 2 sensitivity, all you have to do is adjust it to a lower level.
More Ways of Improving Picture Quality and Lessening Galaxy Note 2 Light Sensitivity
There are many other options in the Galaxy Note 2 camera that will let you ensure a high quality photo. Among them is the HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode which is capable of increasing the detail of your captured images. You can also adjust its Scene Mode, Effects and Exposure value to adjust your camera’s ability to take images even in areas with very bright lighting conditions.
