    Hello, I find that if I take a picture before GPS locks on, it doesn't even keep trying. The GPS data doesn't get recorded. Is there something wrong with my device? Is there anything I can do? Thank you!

    Are you saving the photos to your SD card or your phone storage?

    Phone storage. Would that make a difference?

    Not sure, was just a long shot. I know that the phone storage processes the photos faster than the SD storage.

    Well I can see that it's trying to catch on to GPS coordinates but if I launch and take a picture within a second or so, then that picture doesn't get its GPS coordinates!

    If you are opening the camera from a secured lock screen it definitely does not tag the location. If you go into settings the button is "greyed" out so you cannot even turn it on. But if using the camera from an unlocked state, then I have not seen any issues. Frustrating really, kind of defeats the purpose of having a lock screen shortcut.

    Yes, it does kind of defeat the purpose.

    But what about the not recording it if you are not under the lock screen and you take a picture before it can lock on? I mean, load up the camera and take a shot before the GPS locks on. This issue never happened with my LG g3 or note 2 on Android.

    So does anyone else have this problem? I've been using the Google camera and honestly the quality isn't the same. It's close I suppose. Maybe can someone recommend another camera app that plays nicely with the hardware?
