Was this issue fixed after the latest updates? Can everyone confirm? I am about to pick one up again on swappa after I saw on another site that people seem to not be having the issue any longer.
Samsung released the updated version to the carriers some weeks ago now. T-Mobile pushed it some weeks ago. The fixed version ends in "ARL1" for the US and it completely resolved the problem. I can't speak to when other carriers have/will release or what their version # ends in because I have not been following them. I suggest you start reading the thread from page 72 onward.
Same issue with mine and my husband's 512gb blue t mobile note 9. We've tried enabling/disabling all camera settings, system cache reset, factory reset, app cache reset... A lot of things that you wouldn't expect an average phone user to do to have such a rudimentary feature working without long stutters where you can't take a picture. What troubleshooting steps can be done? I'm open to anything to have a fully functioning device...
I have freezing/lagging issue too. I have the 512Gb snapdragon model SM-N960U1. If this is a software issue all user with this model should have the problem. We're all running the same Camera version and firmware.
Heres some more compiled threads with no answers or ways to fix.
I also have the freezing problem. For me it goes away in safe mode (confirmed multiple times). When I return the phone to regular mode it is good for a while. (minutes to hours.) but then it comes back. Camera is next to useless sometimes. This is very fustrating. Hopefully there is a software fix. If not perhaps we do have faulty phones. It seems the majority (but not all) of the phones reporting it are the 512 versions. My friend has a 128 and has had zero issues. I even made sure all of the settings were identical between the two phones. At some point I will leave the phone in safe mode for a long period and find out if the issue eventually returns in safe mode. I'm really not inclined to factory reset as I've seen others do so without solving the issue.
