    Are you using tap to focus? Switch to Macro mode and tap the subject so the camera can focus on it. If you are too close, stepping away a little bit can help.

    Get pro camera with macro lenses and stop whining. S4 is a phone.

    The S4 makes awesome macro photos. I use the app Camera FV-5.

    The gs4 can take some very nice macro shots. This is from my phone.

    Nice shot! How did you get the macro shot though? Is there a setting or an app?

    Just the Samsung stock app. Got up close, framed the shot, touched where to focus and snapped the pic.

    The pic above I took with the phone. It's possible to get decent macro shots but of course pro gear allows for more.

    Camera FV-5 does the trick. You can take nice macro shots with it, even better than the stock app.
