    I am using Mi 5s and camera focus seems having some issue, have a look attached photo, left top corner you could see it's blurry while center is completely normal, I need to tap focus couple times to make blurry go away, any idea why?

    Focus don't have any issues bokeh effect when you focus and make photos of close objects....

    We call that "macro" that means camera app always try to focus closest objects. You must try to hold your phone paralel with your object (i.e keyboard like your photo). Have a nice day!

    Hello, another camera problem here: autofocus for distant objects does not work immediately.
    It takes about 1 minute starting from when I open camera app, then it works normally. Then I force close camera app, open it again, and notice the same problem: it takes the same time to work again.
    Same thing with external camera app, with official, dev, China and global roms.

    I also tried manual focus with both external and official camera app.

    whoever having this autofocus issue, after checking out the Chinese MIUI forum, it might cause by misfit of the focus coil and stuck, you could try to tap it a bit harder on camera side, that fix for me.

    I am wondering if it's really hardware issue or software issue....

    I clicked confirm on the link as well, I kind of doubt that's a hardware issue, camera module is pretty mature and it shouldn't be a quality issue at all.

    found something new, instead of tapping it, I wipe my thumb on camera when blurry happen, seems resolved it immediately, anyone mind to try it?

    Some people say that it's fixed in MIUI EU 6.12.22, I have the stable one. They wipe dalvik cache and cache twice, berfore and after flashing the rom.

    With 6.12.22 the results in many low light situations are better and the problem oft the 1st post here seems to be history.

    If i start the camera and the picture is blurry, i turn the phone upside down (display looking to the floor) for a second. If you watch the camera while upside down you will see the lens moving a few micrometers. After turning back i have a sharp picture.

    it's same result as tapping the camera module, the aim is to move camera lens manually, haha
