    This is what my pictures look like when I try to take a picture.

    Why is my rear camera extremely blurry?-11018732_1599660966933222_9089361053740838747_n.jpg

    This was taken with the rear camera. You can't make out anything. The only mode that's not blurry is Selfie mode (or Beauty mode) why is my camera like this? It's not dirty and there's no film or anything on the lens, it's plain old blurry and I want to fix it so that my pictures are clear.

    Remove the rear battery cover and clean the plastic lens of the camera. Put the cover back on then go into system settings > applications > sort by all > camera. Clear the cache then try take a picture. Be sure to no be too close otherwise the camera might not focus.

    If the problem continues then it's likely an issue with a piece of hardware. At that point, I'd suggest taking it back for a look or contact Samsung for repair.

    I believe it's glass on the camera lens not plastic actually. That's awfully blurry. No tape or protective film on the camera? It's supposed to have a hole in the middle so it shouldn't matter anyway but just in case.

    I tried everything and it's still extremely blurry. I made sure all of the plastic was off when I first got the phone and the rear camera worked just fine and now it's just all blurry. I reset the phone to factory condition and it's still extremely blurry. I'll have to talk someone. We have 3 T-Mobile departments inside of the mall where I live so next time I go to the mall, I'll have someone look at it. I hate that I can't take pictures the way I want to. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 as well and the camera works just fine. I'm not understanding why my Note Edge camera is so screwed up.

    Sometimes I find that I need to wipe the camera off as I would my glasses when they fog up. Also could it be it is taken a long time to auto focus?

    Somebody told me on the forums to shake the phone when you open the camera app, did that and it fixed the problem

    This worked for me too. I am guessing the optical focus gets stuck sometimes.

    The S6 Edge (same with the S6) has the exact same camera and sensor as the Note 4/Edge so any issues with the current Note Edge's camera could very well transfer over to the S6/S6 Edge.

    I've read an article about the phone case bevels interfering with the cameras due to the light transmittance. Don't know if that's a factor for you.

    Okay, I just got the Note 4 today and was about to scream/cry having this very same problem. My boyfriend (who has had a Galaxy months before me) started fiddling, and found a solution that seems to work thus far. Go in to the camera, hit Mode, select "Beauty Face", then go back into Mode and hit "Auto" after one or two tries things suddenly focused.

    I certainly hope this helps you too.

    Same problem here.
    Don't ask my why, but yes, this really does work!

    Yep, shaking or giving it a small love tap on a corner focuses it right up. Very weird.

    Those of you who have received the 5.1 Lollipop update, does that resolve the blurry focus issue?

    It's a hardware problem. I returned mine and got a new phone. Samsung is aware of the problem.

    I can confirm that 5.1 doesn't fix the blurry focus issue.

    Thank you for the quick fix. My camera on my Note 3 all of the sudden was taking blurry pictures. I followed the instructions to remove back and clean camera eye and clear cache. It is working perfectly now.

    HI Brandi, my camera is the same way, It's blurry for a few seconds then it clears up and I haven't installed the update yet. I just got a message saying that "software update ready to install," did yours start getting blurry after the update?

    That's more than likely the same hardware issue many are complaining about. I have that, myself.
