    Every time I open up the camera is blurry. I touch the screen to get it to fix it nothing. I click and hold .. nothing.
    It just randomly starts to focus.
    Sometimes it takes several minutes.
    My camera does not have the film on it.
    It's my note 4 broken?

    Ok, this sounds insane, but it's true. The focus mechanism might be stuck. Power off the phone and then smack the phone against the palm of your hand so that the camera area is hitting your palm. Give it a couple of whacks in one direction and test it. If that doesn't work, power off again and give it a couple of whacks the other way. No, I'm not trolling you, I just had to do this to my daughter's phone at Christmas time. I didn't believe for a second that it would make any difference, but it actually fixed the problem 100% and she's hasn't had an issue since.

    My note 4's camera has always been blurry and I finally decided to see if this was normal, it's not, thank you, this helped fix it.
