Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge features a great new camera. These cameras feature a brand new technology to allow for an extremely quick auto-focus and shutter, better low-light photography, and just an excellent overall camera experience. But some have reported that the Galaxy S7 camera is slow and has become frustrating for users.
While others see the Galaxy S7 message saying “Hold the device steady until it finishes taking the picture” with a circle that takes forever. For those that are having this problem and want to fix the “hold device steady” popup message which usually leads to fuzzy photos on the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, below is a guide to help you out.
How to Fix Slow Galaxy S7 Camera Performance
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge picture stabilization is a feature designed for night-time use. But this feature is enabled by default and is causing the slow camera on the Galaxy S7. The following instructions will help you fix the slow camera on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge:
- Turn on the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.
- Open the Camera app.
- Go to Settings, which can be seen in the lower left side of the screen.
- Look for the “Picture Stabilization” option and disable it.
After you follow the instructions above, you’ll start having a faster Galaxy S7 camera and have better pictures taken that are not blurry. Picture Stabilization on the Galaxy S7 allows for users to take clearer and brighter photos when in a low light situation by keeping the shutter open longer to gather more light and details. As a result, you’ll need to be extremely steady-handed while waiting. The smallest movement by your hand, or the subject, will cause the photo to have some blurry lines.
