    My Galaxy Note 10 plus 5G camera doesn't start straight away.

    When I go to launch the app. Screen remains blank for 5 to 10 seconds before I can start taking photos or videos.

    This happens most times I go to use the camera.

    It happens from the quick launch on my lock screen and on home page where my camera app is located.

    Strangely when I Google the issue, the problem doesn't replicate.

    This is a default camera app that came with the phone.

    Model number is SM-976N

    Have you tried clearing cache in the camera app itself?
    Maybe also try ang go into diagnostics to see if it shows any faults

    Try Google Camera. If that's also slow, it's the phone. If not, it's the app.

    If it's the phone, it's probably one of the camera modules, and that's a hardware problem, so it has to be replaced. (It's under warranty.)

    If it's the app, clearing the cache and data may help. (Force stop before clearing, so it doesn't load up junk between clearing and stopping.)

    (But you may find that you prefer the Google app to the stock app.)

    Hi guys,

    OP here. Thanks for the responses.

    I tried clear data, clear cache and force stop then reset phone.

    No difference.

    I will try to work out how to run diagnostics and create log.
