Don’t Like the Shutter Lag on the Galaxy S24 Ultra? Here’s a Simple Fix!

We live in a world where posting photos to special media has become a way to express and share your happenings and moments with the world. Having a smartphone with good camera hardware and software is equally important for all of that to happen. Now, Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra does take good pictures thanks to the good camera hardware and software.

However, with the S24 Ultra’s camera, there is a small issue. You see, the shutter has a bit of a lag. What does it mean? Well, it simply means that the second you tap on the shutter, there is a delay and this only means you missed capturing a moment that happened at the very second.

Now, there is a fix for this, but I do hope Samsung does address this issue and fixes it without users having to make use of the workaround.

Do note that you can follow this method for almost any Galaxy smartphone that lets you install Good Lock and the Camera Assistant module.
