Possible slow camera fix on S4
I do not have S4 but I am considering getting it and I read about that slow picture taking issue.
, I found this:
Figured out a fix for blurry/slow to focus pictures. After removing all the little plastic pieces on the phone it turns out there is a very thin, hard to detect donut shaped piece of plastic over the lens. It takes a bit of scraping around the edge of the lens to even find it but its there. It causes the camera to focus slowly and alters light getting into the lens. Believe me its there and if you fool around until you find it and get it off the lens it makes all the difference in the world. I found this fix by googling "s4 blurry photos". Showed it to a salesman at BestBuy today, he had been hearing people complain about the blurry pics. He didn't believe me at first but then said "wait there is something there" peeled it off and BAM problem solved. Hope this helps!
What do you think? Was this known before? If not, can someone try it and see if it helps?
