This may rather odd and stupid, but I had this issue, and in frustration I shook my phone a little and then it started to focus again and work normally

Then your phone needs to be repaired. It will become more frequent and you will get frustrated more.

Have same trouble & after shifting through the forum I found that a couple of taps on top of phone seems to cure the prob it has on mine!

Hope this helps

You have a high end top spec phone. Why on earth would you need to tap it to fix a problem. The problem is that it is damaged. Mine was and so was everybody else's. Tapping it just masks the problem. Get it fixed.

I agree Swifty75 but a few taps was better economics than the 4 hour round trip I would of faced to get the phone looked at - too soon to say anymore about the prob as it hasn't returned yet!

It really bugs me that this phone has this glitch ... it's a huge inconvenience and hassle to send off my phone to get repaired, Samsung need to get better at sorting these issues out.

Hi @DaveRH. We could arrange a courier collection and have your phone taken to a Service Centre for an engineer to inspect if you prefer?
