    The time it takes for this thing to take a picture is awful. What gives? I really want to like this phone but I feel like my old G5 is faster than this thing.

    Is it just me? I really like the pictures it takes though.

    Did you try clearing the cache in the camera app?

    Didn't try that yet. Thanks for the tip. So far seems a little faster.

    Dang, I either forgot about this or I never even knew it was a thing. Thanks, I'm going to give it a try.

    Good suggestion! I just saw this suggested in another thread. Sounds like a smart plan!

    it helped for a bit but now it's back to awful. I am ditching the G6 and going to an essential ph1. so far it's like night and day how much faster this phone is at everything.

    maybe I got a bad G6 I dunno. I even did a hard reset and it was still laggy.

    Sorry to hear you're having camera issues. My G6 has been working great, and I've had no camera issues all.

    So glad you're enjoying your Essential Phone! What colour did you get? It's true that there are always some "bad apples" in phone lines/batches... It is too bad that your G6 didn't run well!

    Yah, the camera is really slow to load up. Too bad cause i love the wide angle camera. Clearing the cache helps for a little bit. It won't fix it completely. Maybe it's the camera app itself that's slow. I haven't found a 3rd party camera app that support the wide angle mode though.

    Yes, hopefully! It's disappointing because the LG G6 is such a great phone... LG needs to to support it with meaningful updates!

    Maybe Google camera app could help. See here:
