    Hi. I have owned a Galaxy S9 Plus since release day and have not been too thrilled with the picture quality more so here of late. My biggest issue is when I take photos of my two year old son, the images don't seem sharp or very clear. Kind of fuzzy if that makes sense. I am no photo expert so sorry on the words of choice if they don't make sense.

    I take alot of photos of my son and I notice the quality always seems poor. I feel like my S7 Active took better images of people. So my question is, am I using the camera wrong? Is there a recommended setting for taking photos of people? Or is this a known issue?

    Throughout the summer I used the live focus mode which seemed to make the picture quality look better, but that mode seemed to work best when it was bright out. I searched all over Google, YouTube and the forums before I posted looking for ideas on what could be the cause or any tips on taking pictures of my son or any people. Any information or ideas is highly appreciated.

    First picture, focus seems to be on the top edge of the windshield. Second picture, focus seems to be on the shoe soles.

    Before taking the picture, focus - tap the face. It'd focusing on what's sharpest around the center of the picture until you tap it to tell it where to focus.

    Thank You for the response and the pointers. I always feel like I tap the screen to focus on him but maybe I am not or where I need to be. I'll work on that.

    I had some similar thoughts at first. But when I see the other photos that friends and people take on their phones, I realize a lot of them come out with similar issues or a lot worse. Even the fancy cameras like an iPhone XS or Pixel and whatever.

    In the end, I think it's mostly environmental factors like lighting and how you're taking the photo. And like Rukbat said, I'll tap the focus if I need to have something specific come out the most.
