hi guys
i hope i can explain what's happening in correct english, if i make some mistakes please forgive me

i've got a big problem with my one

when i start the camera app, and it happens EVERY TIME, the camera takes a long time to begin "responding" to my commands

i'll try to explain

i start the camera
the camera begins to focus all the way out, then come back all the way in, and THEN if i tap it will correctly focus on the object i tapped on

if i tap before all this, it just doesn't focus

so i have to wait several seconds to begin "shooting" photos, and this happens anytime i will start the camera app

with the night or in low light, the problem is even bigger taking betweet 5 to 10 second to be "operative"


i've made a video on this problem but please be advised i've used an iphone in one hand while having the htc in the other, so i don't know if you can see exactly what happens

it's normal or it's my one that is faulty?

PS: i had this problem with stock 1.28 and now i have the trickrom 3.5 ( based on 1.29 ) and the issue is still here


in the video you can see that i try to focus on the electronic cigs without success... i will reach to focus around 0:24

HTC doesn't care. You can send it in teo HTC USA and they will take care of it. I had a international ONE X that had different processor housing etc... and they took care of it no problem.

Could be a hardware issue. Some early devices has a focusing problem.
