camera problem with live focus and zoom

First Poster

it's not fair to repair a phone that has just been bought, but if they do not want to exchange it and give you a new one I think that you do not have too much other choices apart from fixing it


Hello all, I have the same problem. I prordered a note9 via Samsung uk. and got it on 24 August. First reported on 3 Oct. It has been confirmed by Samsung Manchester repair centre this week. The camera is faulty. Been calling customer services, the only solution that Samsung offered is repair. This is not a one off incident and I have googled online, several people have the same issues. Who will want to spend £1100 on a flagship phone and have it repaired. Its only 6 weeks old. The phone hasn't got a satisfactory quality. If I don't get a brand new replacement or a refund from samsung, I will contact my credit card company for a refund under uk section 75. It's a really bad experience and very poor customer service.

So I went to different Costco warehouses,  different AT&T centers and tested the displays. 


I even swapped out for a new phone since I get 90 day policy thru Costco.   This new phone is a little better but still kind of does it. 


All displays have focus grainy screen issue based on my tests 


I hope it's a software issue.   Waiting for the October update which supposedly contains camera update too.


NEVER had these problems with my other Samsung galaxy phones... VERY DISAPPOINTED so far!

Hi. I'm also having the same problem with the camera in zoom and focus mode. It looks like it has a malfunctioning camera opener.

Same problem here. On zooming or using live focus the telefocus lens keeps vibrating & blurry image appear.
