    Does anyone else with the Moto Z play have problems with the camera taking up to 15 seconds to focus and snap a picture? Sometimes I open the camera, tap the screen to focus, the screen appears to focus, then I click the shutter button and the screen unfocuses, tries to refocus, takes 15 seconds, and then finally takes the picture. I love the phone, but the camera is driving me nuts. Does anyone know of a way to force it to take a photo? I could take 5 photos in the time that it sometimes takes to just take one.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    Use promode don't change any settings unless you want and it'll take faster pics.

    Is there a way to default to this mode when the camera app opens?

    You can open the camera, go home, then open the camera again. It's something about the initial launch (after not being used for a while, not necessarily after a reboot) that would make mine hang at random.

    A poor micro SD could be the culprit.

    I think you are correct. It seems to be much faster on internal storage. Might be time to get a fast SD card and turn on adoptable storage.

    It shouldn't take that long.... If you are having problems and saving to internal storage then you should ask for a warranty replacement
