    Welcome to AC
    Do you mean that after you take a picture it will give you a 1-2 second preview of the one you just took? I don't think that feature can be disabled. It's supposed to be there so you can see whether or not the picture you took is satisfactory.
    You can try another app like the Google Camera which will not do that, but the stock app doesn't have an option to turn it off.

    Weary about using another app because I like the speed of the stock app. Considering wiping my phone to see if it fixes the issue. That is how frustrating this is.

    It is more than a 1-2 second preview, it delays 1-2 seconds, then brings me to my gallery image of the pictures with the options to share or edit it or swipe left or right and view the other pictures in my gallery.

    Well, like I said, that appears to be a feature of the stock camera app. Haven't seen a setting (at least on the S4, don't have access to an S5) that eliminates the preview after the picture.
    You can try a third party app if it's that much of an issue

    I appreciate the insight but I swear not all s5's force the preview. Can anyone else weigh in?

    Ah, OK. Didn't know it wasn't common on every S5. I'll see if any of the S5 guys can help or maybe another user can weigh in.

    There's a toggle in camera settings "Review pics/videos". Do you have that set to 'off'? I turned it on, and it behaved just as you described.

    Exactly what Daniel said. I do not get any preview and mine was set like that by default.

    As others have said, I just turned on "review pictures/videos" and it did exactly what you described. Turn it off, and check an app's settings first in the future if you want to change something about it.

    I tested this just now, and Daniel is 100% correct. Amazing what you can learn by asking a question here.

    You can swipe up within the camera settings to reveal more settings.

    Your phone must be in Easy Mode.

    Unhappy Re: Galaxy S5 Picture Preview Issue

    My phone is doing the same thing with the preview and I don't have the option for Review or a Toggle option in my camera settings. My phone isn't set to easy mode. My phone wasn't doing this before ..... and then one day the option came up after I took a pic to switch to seeing a preview and I thought that would be a nice feature. No. It's an annoying feature. What other way can I find this 'Review option'

    So that's how Schnikies is spelled. I had no idea settings scrolled like that. Some indication on the screen would be helpful. Thank you!

    There is an indicator to the right of the items, though it does blend with the menu.

    Turn your auto rotation on and go to your camera. click on the settings and turn your phone. the settings where it shows all your options.. scroll down and you should see an option that says "Auto Review Pics/Videos" and turn that off.

    My Samsung s5 active didn't always have this setting in the camera. It used to be a great camera and take fast photos. Now it is slow and makes you preview the photo then back out of the gallery to take another photo. I feel like this changed with one of the last updates. Anyone know how to fix this.

    In your stock camera settings, scroll down to the "Review Pics/Videos" option and turn it off. Many people don't realize that there are more settings that just what appears when you tap the cog. You will also see things like "grid lines", "storage location", etc.... It's in there.

    Many thank for that. ****ers Samsung app designers - I could not see that there was an option to scroll down the settings menu more to reveal more settings. Obviously Samsung's app team lost the plot. I have never spent so much time figuring out how to do something so simple like this on anything, and I have a lot of experience in those things.

    God bless there are good people like you who will help.

    Cheers
