14 percent of readers think it’s no problem that Samsung phones with their artificial intelligence ensure that moon photos look much better than reality. Samsung was embarrassed this week for upgrading lunar photos a little too enthusiastically with its 100x Space Zoom Moonshot. Although it itself states that it certainly does not fake photos, it does appear that way to many people. But, it turns out, for several people, all that AI beautification is no problem at all.

Yet the majority of Androidworld readers are not at all pleased with the fake of the moon photo. 47 percent say they don’t want their moon photo faked. There is also a large group of 35 percent who say that a little artificial intelligence is quite okay, but that there should be no manipulation. 3 percent don’t know very well: and that makes sense, after all, it may also depend very much on the extent to which there is faking.
In fact, many readers indicate that they want the choice. It’s great that it can be done, but it also has to be done. ikkuh: “I don’t mind if I can just turn it off. Just like all other filters.” Karel-Willem seems to find it all unnecessary hassle. “In theory, everyone takes the same photo of the same moon. So that makes no sense. Then just take a nice picture from the Internet.” Although that is of course always an option if you only use it to watch yourself at home, you have to take photo rights into account. Otherwise, the moon images on your website, blog or social media suddenly become very expensive.
glass blower doesn’t like the AI: “Photos that are fake and have nothing to do with the reality of place, time and emotion have no place on any camera.” Meanwhile, other readers have figured out why this feature is there. @tukker: “Of course that’s bad, you don’t get what you photograph, but what you want to see. Soon I’ll take a picture of an Alien on the moon and it will be erased because AI says it’s an imperfection. 😥 #roadperfect picture “.
We have indeed not spotted any moon men or other alien scum with our Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra so far, so maybe @tukker is just absolutely right.
Thanks for your responses! Next week again? Then we’ll be back with another AW Poll.
