JUMP TO SOLUTION

Whenever I open the camera its blurry and out of focus for at least 5 seconds. It seems to be stuck on a really near focus until the Auto Focus kicks in This also extends to apps like snapchat

Hey, @usermrrE462FEx, due to the nature of your camera's multiple apertures, this is the nature of your device choosing the correct thing to focus on after launching the device.

 

I would suggest clearing your device's cache to see if this impacts the speed of this feature.

1. Power off your device
2. Power it back on by holding down the Volume Up, Home/Bixby, and Power keys.
3. When you see the Android laying down, wait for 30 seconds until it boots into the Recovery Menu.
4. From here, use the volume up/down keys to highlight "Wipe Cache partition" and select it with the power key.

I have the same problem, I had the phone for 2 days and the camera is blurry when it's on AUTO mode. I'm going back to the att and see if I can return the phone.

Same here. Have you found a fix. I've even tried shaking the phone as some say works.

I went into Camera Settings - Edit Camera Modes - Front Camera and turned off "Selfie focus".  That might help some of you.

I'm having the same problem . The phone is only a couple months old, and never been dropped. 

None of my iPhones ever did this. It's extremely frustrating.
