    Who else is annoyed by the camera's slow speed to focus/take pics? It makes my phone feel like some low end smartphone. My One S with the same Snapdragon had a far superior camera. Why in the world did Nokia gimp down on this camera so much?

    Memory card speed can affect how long it takes for a shot (if that was an issue) - some other people on this forum have taken speed hits with certain brands or classes of cards. As for focus, it seems just fine for me, takes about 2-3 seconds in low light though, so if that's unacceptable then I don't know what to tell you. Sometimes my dSLR can take awhile to auto focus (I have noticed, however, that the phone is fairly consistent with searching for 2-3 seconds every time in low light - seems quicker in the daylight).

    I record video and pics to phone memory.

    My dslr can also take a bit to focus at times But who cares.

    Smartphone cams are supposed to be a closer replacement to point and shoot cameras which on auto, most p&s cameras are quick

    Turn off "focus assist light" to speed up picture taking.

    yea.. thats been off. barely makes a difference at all.

    keeping on on the 'sports' settings makes it a tad faster
