    Hey guys, has anybody noticed that when you have the front facing camera on with no effect, it is very laggy and choopy , however when you add an effect like black and white for instance, the picture is much smoother?

    Am I the only one experiencing this?

    Is there a fix for this as this is very dissapointing

    Any help is appreciated thanks

    Yeah, I have this problem too, except I get a periodic "Camera Failed" message. Given that the camera works fine a lot of the time, I'm not sure if it's a hardware or software problem.

    No issues with the front facing camera for me. Although the warping at the edges annoys me a little.

    I'm having this issue too! Very annoying, and I have never dropped my phone or done anything that could damage it.

    I am having this issue as well. There are 2-3 blue / purple dots, and when I restart the phone they go away for a short while, then come back.

    I noticed something today. When I flip to the front camera. It still lagged and be sluggish. Then I started messing with the effects. No lag, but then turned HDR off and noticed it stopped lagging. I don't if it was like a reset but try that and out beauty scale at 0. I know it sounds crazy but mine stopped lagging.

    My front facing camera just got laggy all of a sudden (it's been fine since I got the phone in April), so I've been searching for answers. I just tried your solution of putting the beauty scale down to 0 and it worked! Too bad with such a high resolution, I need the beauty mode, haha.
