Snapchat focus issue

    RemiC, Nov 20, 2016 :

    When using the rear camera on snapchat, the camera just keeps re-focussing every second or so. Only, it never really get's a good focus, it's just blurry nearly the entire time with a .1 second in actual decent focus.
    While shooting a video on snapchat I have the same issue...
    This problem only occurs when using the rear camera in snapchat, not in any other app.

    Any thoughts on this?

    yes I am running latest version of snapchat
    yes I have also tried re-installing the app

    Please all use the report problem function in snapchat so the problem will actually be resolved. Snapchat tends to be pretty slow on these matters...
    Assuming it is a Snapchat problem that is.

    If anyone has a possible fix, please shoot!

    I used xposed and downloaded the snapchatlensesenabler module and that seemed to help with the problem.

    Does this require a rooted device?

    Yes it does. The problem still kind of exists however so it isn't a sure fix

    I fixed the problem by opting out of snapchat beta and downloading the normal public app.

    just change the camera to manual! reinstall the app after that and I'll be fine I think. it can't focus with hq or hdr for some reason.

    Still can't get my snapchat front camera to focus. How do you change the camera to manual? Or opt out of the snapchat beta?

    This may have been fixed for some of you, or if you left the beta to fix it. I had the same issue, I have the S10+ and it got a software update then all a sudden Snapchat stopped focusing and the camera was kinda glitchy.
    I found a fix, so far I haven't noticed it happen again but we'll see as the days go on.

    Go into Snapchat and go to settings, down near the bottom, clear your cache and also clear lense data. Seems to do the trick, and I have that beta
