    The author says it can take the camera on his P3 five seconds to open(!). For me it's nearly instantaneous. i'm not sure how much I've tried using the camera while listening to music though which they say makes it even worse. Anyone else have a problem with this?

    Andrew is wildin' with that "hot take". I have zero problems. I mean, 5 seconds?!? I need to see video proof of that issue before I take his word on that kind of delay.

    I have double tapped the power button and missed the photo I was going for because the camera was slow to open.

    I've never seen the 3XL take that long. It's a little slower on HDR + Enhanced but that's normal.

    I don't know , this guy making like the pixel 3 has this problem out of the gate some type of wide spread problem. not saying some are not experiencing it but the people who have the issue got to troubleshoot and find the problem . I'm not having any issues with my camera or video.

    My camera app was fast out of the box. After a couple months I felt like it was lagging. When Andrew's post came out I decided to time my camera. It was about 1.5 seconds from launch (either double tap power button or app shortcut on the home screen). Following the advice of a comment on the article I cleared the camera app cache. Since then I'm under one second from launch to capture.

    My camera has been horribly slow. Even after factory reset. Takes 2 to three seconds to start the app and then 4 to 6 seconds to snap the pic after.....

    After clearing cache, it works great for about 20 minutes, then it's back to being slow

    I wonder if the lack of RAM is to blame, the app would obviously take longer to open if Google can't keep it running in the background at all times like some of their competitors.

    Another sensasionalist article by the team here. The sky is falling, just like the P2 screen burn in, funny how we never heard about that ever again shortly after that big article where he defended himself on the podcast saying it was his duty to inform the public. Lol.

    Guess they had enough best cases and best chargers you can buy on Amazon articles so he discovered his phone camera suddenly has issues months later that NO ONE has complained about until now.

    Yawn. I'd rather read more how to plug my playstation into a wall outlet articles.

    I don't think it would be ram , maybe the adaptive battery may play a role could be more aggressive. That's easy to test as you can disable it and see.

    I doubt it's about the RAM. Even if it's not running in the background it should still open pretty fast.

    I wonder how a android guy like him can't figure out what's causing it ....

    I say again click bait anyone?
    Or trolling the android members ?

    I still challenge anybody to show a stock pixel any generation taking 5 seconds to launch and take a pic. Not gonna happen.

    EXACTLY THIS!! Without some show of proof, these claims are worthless. If it's as he claims it to be, post the video.

    We should all feel foolish for getting sucked in to what's obviously click bait.
    He did a good job though he attacked the one special thing about the pixel line and we just fell right into it. LOL

    I'm not seeing it. Maybe takes a second to second and a half when opening the camera right after turning the phone on. Much less than that if the phone is already on.

    Yeah I'm not understanding the direction AC is going. There is a terrible lack of consistency. On one section of the homepage, there are links to articles saying 1) Phone A has a terrible camera, but 2) Phone A is the best overall Android phone, however 3)Phone B is the best phone of 2018.

    Makes me cringe.

    Standard Pixel 3, here. Camera fires in about a second. Last restart of my phone was for the last security update.

    It's simple. Martonik, unfortunately, has graduated to the class of clickbait authors that should be utterly ignored. I don't know if this issue is real or not, and whether or not Martonik says it is does not provide me any additional information because I cannot trust whether or not anything he says is accurate.

    My Pixel 3 is not having the same camera lag issue that Andrew's is having, but I trust him. My wife has had to do two warranty swaps on her Pixel 3 while mine has been just fine. I'm not sure that quality control is doing the best job in the Pixel 3 assembly building.

    That wasn't a non-issue. I had terrible burn-in on my Pixel 2 XL.

    What I'd like to know is what apps Andrew installs on his phone, and if the camera works normally in Safe Mode. If it's not slow in Safe Mode, then something he routinely installs is causing the issue, and I'd guess that the other people who complain about this problem have that same app (or a similar app) installed as well. I saw a reply to a tweet asking him if he tried Safe Mode, but what he said was that after a factory reset, it works normally for a short while, but then after installing "a few apps," it starts again. I'd like to know what those few apps are, and if he's tried uninstalling them one by one.

    I agree, the easiest thing to do was put in safe mode or disable adaptive battery and see what happens. The last resort would be factory reset.
