    I just traded my droid max for the g2 and the one thin that really sticks out to me is how long it takes to focus as well as taking the picture. Is their any specific settings that makes it all perfect or is this an issue that will be addressed in an update ?

    I have the same observation about focus issues, its slow and the multipoint focus was not a feature asked for by ANY ONE !

    Its pretty bad I played with att model prior to doing this trade since I was in a att and the camera on that wasn't nearly as slow. Its frustrating especially coming from the maxx

    Yeah inside. In my living room. I mean all the lights are on but I guess it doesn't help

    I really only did the trade because I plan on getting a moto x anyways once Verizon had moto maker so I figured having maxx and moto x was redundant and figured I try out g2 since it was a even trade.

    Did you take the blue ring off from around the lens? it does make a difference even though it doesn't cover over it directly.

    change the brightness setting. see if going up or down on the brightness helps. not the screen brightness but the -2-10+1+2 numbers.

    Stickers off. Tinkering with setting a hasn't helped. I'm a little disappointed to say the least I really am not seeing much of a plus over the camera compared to maxx I was expecting a lot better. Maxx actually took way better pictures in low light compared to this. Do you all leave it on normal mode or intelligent auto mode?

    I'm not trying to come off as a troll or bashing but it definitely is not what I was expecting and I'm sort of regretting my decision to trade.

    I guess the one bright side can be that it really appears to be software related so I think it can get better and like I said I didn't notice it be this slow or bad with att model as far as playing in the store.

    Maybe I just had better expectations for the camera due to reviews.

    It's fast in good light, in poor light not so much. I also think dropping the exposure to -1 helps not only with the overall sharpness & exposure, but also with the lag. It still won't be fast in poor light, but you might find it a bit better.

    I switched back to the Google 4.2.2 Camera app I used on my Gnex. They had accidentally released the APK for it on the GS3 or 4 (can't remember which). I like the interface better and the focusing is faster. The only downside is that the publicliy available version I found only lets you shoot up to 8MP. It's a big step down in numbers, but in useful pixels I found the difference to be very negligable.

    Hi,

    We would be happy to provide some guidance on this. We did test some of the phones here and are not having the same issue. This could be isolated to your phone. Suggestion would be to contact your carrier and see if there is a software issue on your phone. ^CL

    Quite impressed if this is really lg replying to this thread.

    Like I said the camera is phenomenal outside its just indoors where I'm disappointed . I was trying to take a picture of my animals just to see how it would do and had living room light on and when I would point it toward them it would have a lot of trouble focusing and when moving the camera/phone around to take a picture of an object it almost looks like a slow motion video .

    I've had the same issues. Also had a Droid Maxx before switching to the G2.
    If it's not bright and you're outside, the pictures look fuzzy. I'm hoping future software updates help address the issue. Other than that, it's a great device.

    I would love some guidance because I'm having some of the same issues as well. It's very noticeable and makes the camera just about useless because you miss everything.

    This seems to be a pretty well known con to this phone. I experience this as well and hopefully its something that can be fixed in the future with a software update. Other than this problem, this is by far the best phone. The Pros heavily outweigh the Con of slowly focusing in low light, but that's my opinion.

    I'm sure manufacturers don't take requests before building smartphones. The multipoint focus feature actually is quite popular and quite useful if I'm to believe what I've read on a few message boards. I like it.
    Of course, your results may vary.

    had mine a week switched from s3 this camera is awful same issues slow and trouble focus and at 13mp I expect clarity not digital zoom like fuzz! tempted to take back and get note 2 as the 3 is tooo pricey and not too interested in 4, like htc 1 but screen size too small...any opinions on a quad core with a great camera?

    also issues with touch screen while charger plugged in :/

    Please suggest a use case for Multiple focus points. ( I know there are but I'd rather focus faster.)

    I've noticed that using the "Intelligent Autofocus" helps quite a bit. I saw a significant difference with and without it.

    I found out that if you go to the settings gear icon in the camera app, click focus, click manual. Then you can manually focus the camera perfectly.

    Same thing happens with my G2 aswell

    Outside Photography is alright but the moment you shoot at night in the room with all the lights switched on, it lags alot.
    If LG can provide me email i will send them the Video of how things lag in the camera.

    I need suggestion aswell if thats not the case with every G2 in the market, i'vent made a call yet so should i sell it or wait for the Software Update to get things fixed???

    I haven't experienced these camera issues much. I mostly take outdoor pics during the day. Did have some lag with couple night pics, but at least they turned out great.
