How to make your Galaxy S10 camera always open in last used mode

You know your Galaxy S10 will consistently recollect whether you used the front or back camera the last time you clicked pictures with the phone, but did you know you can also force it to always open in the last used shooting mode? Not everyone uses their smartphone primarily for still photos. Parents, for example, would love to be able to quickly start capturing a regular video or a slow-motion one of their kids so they can cherish those moments later on. Selfie addicts, meanwhile, might be spending more time taking bokeh pictures with the Live Focus mode on their Galaxy S10.

And thanks to a neat little option Samsung introduced with Android Pie, you can make sure your Galaxy S10 camera always opens in your favorite shooting mode. That option is called Keep using last mode; the name may be self-explanatory, but you may not have come across it if you haven’t dug deep into your Galaxy S10’s camera settings. Once you enable the option, the camera app will always open in the last used shooting mode. If you recorded a video on your phone the last time, you’ll be taken directly to video mode the next time you fire up the camera app. The same goes for Live Focus, Super Slow-mo, night, or any of the various different shooting modes on the Galaxy S10.
