Why OPPO A79 Camera Slow Responsive Or Lagging?

Sometimes we need to use our camera as quickly as possible, but at certain moments, our Oppo camera may run slowly. Please note, RAM is very important for running any apps including the Oppo camera. This phone has options for 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM. If we open too many apps, then this RAM may not be enough to run the Oppo camera app efficiently.

What will happen when RAM is insufficient? This phone will try to force close the oldest unused applications to give more RAM space to avoid hanging or getting stuck. This process will cause some delay on the OPPO A79 to free up RAM.

Therefore, our OPPO A79 camera applications may run slower. Please close all unused applications before taking some photos or videos. If we want to capture a serious photography moment, please consider rebooting or restarting the OPPO A79 to clean up foreground or background processes.

How to Fix OPPO A79 Camera Auto Focus Problems or Camera Blurry?

The OPPO A79 has autofocus features. But some users may find it hard to focus, and some of them may get blurry photo results. There are several possibilities that can make it hard to focus:

  1. Try to clean the OPPO A79 camera lens. Why is this important? Because small dust in front of the camera will make the autofocus sensor keep focusing on that object. We should always ensure our camera lens is clean by regularly cleaning it using a soft cloth.
  2. Check whether our OPPO A79 camera glass lens has any scratches. This situation is similar to the dust problem. The autofocus will keep focusing on the scratch and make it hard to focus on the real object. If we see a bigger scratch, we suggest replacing the camera glass lens with the original one at an Oppo authorized service center.
  3. Some software/firmware versions may also make OPPO A79 camera autofocus not work properly. Please try to back up with the latest firmware or Android version upgrade.

Why OPPO A79 Camera Error After Android Firmware Upgrade?

The OPPO A79 uses Android 13 OS out of the box. We may get some firmware upgrades. Sometimes our OPPO A79 camera application may encounter troubles after an update. Please try to reset the camera application’s settings to factory default. If the problems persist, try to back up all important data and perform a hard reset to reformat the OPPO A79 to factory default.
