Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have proven to be the most innovative flagships by Samsung ever with their OLED display and iris scanner. Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a top selling product which broke all preorders record. It has also faced some issues along the way, but this camera related issue is first of its kind. Some of the Galaxy S8 users are reporting about a camera bug which is causing trouble for phone’s camera to focus on objects.

The camera focus bug is irritating for users as most of them reported that their S8’s camera tries to focus on objects but fails. This is happening in both factory installed camera app and third-party apps like Snapchat or Messenger. The issue remains even if you try using manual focus.
