How to speed up a slow Android camera app

These steps saved me almost FIVE SECONDS of waiting…EVERY TIME I opened my Android phone’s camera to record a video!

The Steps – How to Fix It

  • Open the Camera app
  • Tap the gear icon to go to Settings —> AI Settings. Make these changes:
    • Disable: Shot Optimization
    • Disable: Google Lens
    • Does anything else in the camera settings seem fancy and unnecessary? Disable that, too!
  • Then restart the Camera app, and that’s it. Faster now?

I had followed other’s suggestions to clear the App Cache, but that did nothing

If this made life a bit less annoying for you, tips are much appreciated: $2 USD, $3 USD, or $5 USD.
