Camera Focus Bug Hits Samsung Galaxy S8

When you fork out $700 for a smartphone, you would expect perfection at least for the first year. However, this is hardly the case with many current flagship smartphones as they often go down with one issue or another shortly after launch. Samsung’s Community Forum has been buzzing with frustrating comments with regards to the inability of the Galaxy S8 to automatically focus when taking photographs using the default Camera app and third-party offerings, like Snapchat. Well, manual focus still doesn’t work with autofocus out of play thus you are left with blurry images irrespective of the mode you’re shooting in.
