    iphone 5 autofocus problem

    Hello, before Christmas i have bought iphone 5 and not so long time ago saw this issue: When making a video, autofocus isnt working. It works only when i touch the screen.
    in this video you can see that it cant autofocus "DILMAH" tea logo, it focuses only after i touch the screen on ~0:22. So it is hardware or software related? is it worth to take to service center? Thanks for the replies

    My 4s used to auto focus so im pretty sure the 5 will. It has face detection so it focuses on faces so its sure to have auto focus. It would be very poor if it didn't

    I forgot to add that before taking video, autofocus is working fine, after i start taking video autofocus stops working. It is so annoying to touch screen to make it focus....maybe service center will give replacement

    You were told incorrect information, the only way you could make a smartphone autofocus is tap the screen and that is with all the smartphones. just tap two or three times for autofocus and it should work perfectly for your iPhone. An iPhone is ment to be better every year and if my iPhone 3GS could do it I'm sure your iPhone 5 could do it even better!

    Many thanks,

    iphone 5 autofocus problem

    My iphone 5 auto focuses. Every picture I take it focuses on something stable in the shot.

    My iphone 4s had auto focus and so does my note 2 try puttibg the camera on and holding a couple of fingers in front of it. Wait till it focuses on them nd take them away. It will the focus on an object further away like a wall or something. Auto focues doesn't work as well in video though

    Well, every smartphone autofocuses automatically when you launch the camera.

    Many thanks,
