  1. Open Camera App
  2. Now long tap on the object on which you want to focus 
  3. After few seconds The autofocus will be locked
  4. Now you can take images without that autofocus

On that note let’s move on to the third method to fix blur. Learn To disable auto focus.

3. Shuffle in-camera setting 

As we all know, according to our needs we change the default settings that came from the company but sometimes this might be creating a blur problem with your camera lens. 

If you haven’t changed your camera settings still you need to restore all the default camera settings to fix the unclear photos problem. 

To restore default camera settings follow the below procedure

restore default camera settings to fix blurry camera
  • First of all open the default camera app 
  • Get into the settings > Scroll Down to the bottom 
  • Now Tap on Restore default settings 

In many phones resetting the camera settings can fix the camera blur issue even in the Samsung and realme devices. That means if you have a Samsung device and getting the camera blur issue in Samsung then you need to follow this.

4. Install third-party camera app 

If you have already followed the above steps then you need a third-party camera app. Why do I need a third-party camera app? Because sometimes there is a bug in the default camera app which is pre-installed by the company itself, that’s why you need a camera app you can download from Google Play Store. 

But if you want to get the best camera app then you should read it.

5. Remove the Smartphone Cover, So-called “Case” 

Mobile Case or Cover

Who doesn’t use mobile covers? I personally use mobile covers and I am damn sure you probably also use mobile covers. Mobile covers are the protectors for our smartphones. They protect our smartphone screens and body. 

How can smartphone covers cause the Camera Blur? In many cases, if you have a smartphone case then this might be the problem because in most of the mobile cases there is a bump over the camera and sometimes it covers the camera (Even a little bit or Flash light filled in cover) OR probably the case might not be properly manufactured or you can say it’s a defective piece.

To fix camera blurring try this: Whenever you are clicking any pictures try to remove the mobile cover. Removing the mobile cover and then taking photos is an effective method to fix the camera Blur.

6. Dust Inside Camera Lens 

Dust went inside the camera len

If you can see the dust gone inside the camera lens or on the camera mirror then you should go to any nearby Mobile Repair Shop. Many people try to do it themselves but I don’t suggest if you want good results then I strongly recommend you to show your phone to an expert.
