I'm am using Hedgecam 2 instead so will wait to see if they fix it. It's a cheap phone and works well otherwise so quite happy at the moment.
marcolopes, you rolled back on Android 7 or did you installed v100 firmware on 8.1? If so, how you did it?
Still Android 8.1 and camera firmware V200.0070,.10,1.18.0 V020.0100.05
user1521993911154, i thought another software would not have the problem, but it has! I made a test at the store with HD Cam and voilá... FOCUS problems!!! So... it's worst than it seems.
ujinjinjin, i did not roll back to Android 7.1! I have 8.1 with June Patch. Camera firmware is still the same and still having problems. I found other devices on the store with previous camera firmware and i think i will swap my phone for one of those. I'm tired of reconfiguring devices, so i waited to see if nokia would say something official about this... but NOTHING until now
UPDATE: old devices with old camera firmware are SLOWER to focus! I made testes at the store...
So, i believe HMD changed the camera hardware... for the best, but gave us this BUG.
They should address this problem and tell users WHAT to do! Give us an alternative other than returning the phones!
Well, HMD still does not have solution for this...
What did you guys do?
All the apps that use the camera have problemas (i have been making videos with Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, and they all reveal focus problems... so... no way around that)
I'm waiting for OFFICIAL release of Google Camera...NOT yet released.
I tried several MODs and all of them have problems.
Even so, installing Google Camera will fix the other apps? (Messenger, Whatsapp, etc??)
I'm glad to inform that the LATEST UPDATE (not the July security, but a new one few days ago) RESOLVED the NOKIA 5 CAMERA hunting focus on VIDEO RECORDING (native app). NOT great... it's usable. The FOCUS still OVERSHOOTS and focus back a little, giving an unpleasant effect, but it does not repeat the focus process over and over again... Don't see this on other phones, so, NOKIA 5 is a problematic phone...
It's a NEW update for bug fixes released already here in Portugal (at least for my NOKIA 5)
I guess it will be released in a timely manner... or maybe it was just for the ones that signed for the BETA LABS?? https://www.nokia.com/en_int/phones/betalabs
Nokia said nothing about this.
Nothing here https://www.nokia.com/en_int/phones/security-updates
It's NOT a security update! It's a BUG FIX / stability, etc update (maybe only applied to some NOKIA models?)
So, are all the people affected by this problem HAPPY with the new FOCUS?
I still have problems... it's not perfect... :
Got the August update a couple weeks back and the video focus problem seems to be fixed!
It's NOT perfect... it still has issues... but the videos are not "unusable" anymore.
I would never buy a Nokia again!
