Please bring back live focus. Portrait is not the same! I used to take lovely photos of objects in the landscape and flowers etc, with the background blur, and now I can't do this because it only works very close up, or with faces. Please bring it back I would never have updated if I'd known it was going to disappear.
This is terrible that the Live focus and its features have been removed but its still marketed on Samsung websites and printed literature and the only answers seem to be that they have replaced it with the 'portrait' setting which does not work totally in the same way as the original Live focus that was shipped on certain Samsung mobile devices and has reduced operability as the original live focus feature (bokeh, swirl etc) . it is not good enough , and the live focus feature may have been a reason why some people purchased the actual mobile phone over another brand.
If you feel strongly about this and would like a chance to see if Samsung reverse their decision to remove it and encouraged to reinstate the Live focus feature back onto the original handsets that came with live Focus will you please consider adding your name to this online petition asking them to reinstate Live Focus?
