First of all, I've been meaning to make this thread for a very long time. I got the M7 about 3 months ago, and I noticed that the pictures don't come out very good.

I'm rooted, using a Google Play rom (4.4.2), and using the new Google Camera app to take these pictures.
But my problem is, most of my pictures come out like this:





And what I noticed happens is:
When I'm looking through the camera, the picture LOOKS fine.. and then as soon as I hit the camera icon to take the pic, the images automatically just blurs itself out. It seems like it wants to focus, but it ends up just becoming super blurry.
Then I can click ANYWHERE on the screen to focus, but then the rest of the images becomes blurry.
Any suggestions please? I don't even enjoy taking pictures anymore because of this.

Definitely not normal. My phone takes phenomenal pictures. Only downside is occasionally in really dark areas; the white balance is off a little. Here ill attach a few in a minute.

Defiantly not normal. I would try a different rom before saying its the camera.
attached is a pic i took with the Google Camera app but running Bucks AOSP build 4.4.3
you might want to try his rom, it's like GPE but without the bugs that follow from a port sometimes.

OP may wanna try updating firmware and maybe try 4.4.3 GPE posted here, instead of 4.4.2.
It has improved quite a bit in my opinion.

Oh and another thing; although I'm sure you already tried this; wipe your lens with a clean t-shirt or microfiber cloth (comes with glasses). Sometimes Ill touch my lens; and even if i don't have greasy fingers, a slight smudge can really destroy a photo.
