    Default Opening camera from lock scree seems to take too long.

    Hi all,

    Just returned to android again and got an s5, so far everything seems to be decent, performance wise, I have noticed some lag here and there in apps like messaging etc, but today I was trying to capture a few pics of my kids while they were playing and I hit the power key, then swiped on the camera from the lock screen and it seems like it takes on average 3-5 seconds.

    It seems as though I swipe, then 2 seconds later the screen goes black, I seethe camera controls show then shortly after the view is available from the camera lens.

    Is this normal for android or is this just a galaxy thing?

    Just seems to feel like it takes too long and would definitely not work out well for those spur of the moment quick shots where time is imperative .

    any thoughts?

    Thank you in advance.

    This is just a galaxy thing. I don't have this issue on my LG G2 or my HTC one M8.

    This is a well known issue. A software patch is coming very soon that will address this and some power management issues as well.

    If you keep a lot of old messages you will experience lag, especially if there are photos involved.

    get in the habit of deleting old messages. I keep mine down to less than 5 or so.
    No lag at all.
