    Hi Guys.

    What do you guys think of the photo quality? My front camera is fine but my back camera seems to have a serious problem focusing- the front actually takes clearer pics than the back. For some reason most if not all of my pics are coming out not completely focus with whitey haze to them - even the 1080 P videos are hazy. I have checked for plastic on the back several times as well as wiped off the lens. I have had just about, and I mean literally just about every superphone in the last four years and I know what a good camera looks like, this camera does not perform like it should and I thinks its not the phone but some issue that must/can be fixed.

    I have read about every review of the phone and all indications are that this phone's camera should be great and rival the EVO LTE which I also have and takes gorgeous- stunningly sharp pics. This is the same on the GS3 and that is also very highly rated. It supposed to be better than the original note which I also had and its looks the complete opposite right now. Well my EVO LTE, GS2, and original Note makes this look like a pinhhole camera. It's obviously not the camera hardware as I think it might be software related or I might even possibly have a defective unit.

    I googled the issue and found an interesting forum on the GS3 which seem to explain my issue to a T. The person said it was a software issue and the camera took excellent pics when using other camera apps from the playstore. I tried that and while I see an improvement, the pics still aren't remotely up to par for a camera with this pedigree. I called the Sprint store to exchange my phone but they are all sold out and I may be lucky to get one next week. I just wanted to know if no one else experienced this since I haven't heard any complaints. Thanks in advance for the feedback as this is a real bummer.

    Sounds like a defective camera, like a lens is out of alignment. Sorry you're having problems with it...
