Anyone else having this issue where the camera makes a clicking noise for about 5 seconds before it will pick a lens and focus? Kinda defeats the purpose of taking the phone out for a picture of I have to wait for this thing to decide if its going to allow me to take a picture.

The higher the resolution you use the longer it will take for the camera to actually take its photo using camera app will allow you to adjust quality or speed or somewhere in between if you switch it to speed to take photos instantly once you press it will fix it20230810_125414_1000005550_1691697257.jpg20230810_125514_1000005551_1691697316.jpg

Yeah it's definitely a software thing. If I install a Google camera port it works just fine. Might just use that.

You could attempt to download SmartSwitch on your computer, backup, and then perform a factory reset. It might solve the problem. 

Alternatively, trying Settings>Apps>three dots>Reset app preferences might work too, but you would lose some settings.

Yeah I have performed a backup and might do that this evening. Uninstalling the Camera Assistant app seems to be helping, gonna give it a bit and see what happens.
