S8/S8+: Camera is out of focus when changing the distance of subject. Is my device faulty?
This is a normal operation concept of Galaxy S8/S8+ Camera.
If a subject is focused by touching the screen, the focus is maintained during 3 seconds with showing manual brightness control level. However, if your camera moves to another subject before the 3 seconds after touch, the camera will still keep focus with the distance to subject that you selected manually before. This is normal concept and accordingly your S8/S8+ camera keeps the distance to subject that you want to focus by manual.
If you want that focus is on automatically and tracks a subject selected on the preview screen, please activate “Tracking AF” feature.
On camera > Settings > turn on Tracking AF feature.
