Our great users on Droid X & Droid 3 phones have been telling us about focus problems. It seems our friends at Motorola have treat focusing different on these phones and we are not sure why!
A fix to the problem is to leave your focus mode on infinity – a white AF symbol. This will allow your camera to always be focused on the subject between 2 and 1000 ft away. If closer than 2 ft, use the macro focus setting. Yellow AF on these phones doesn’t work.
