Camera is too slow

I own Zenfone devices for the past 7 years. My first device was the Zenfone 5, back in 2015. Then i had the ZF2, which were both great devices.

Then i switched to the Zenfone 3 Zoom, my first one was stolen, but the phone was so good, it had an awesome battery that i decided to buy another one. I kept if for 2 years and then i bought the Zenfone 5z. What an amazing phone.. Sadly, i got unemployed and couldnt buy the Zenfone 6 or 7. The moment i found a new job, the first thing i did was to buy the brand new Zenfone 8 Flip.

Well, i typed that story to make a comparative. All of my previous phones had INSTANT camera response. It was so fast. The moment I click to take the photo, I can instantly see the photo I took.

Sadly, this DOES NOT happen with my Zenfone 8 Flip and i cant understand why. It takes the phone more thant 10 seconds of PROCESSING to show me my picture. What is this?

I already cleaned the cache, reset to factory (despite this happening since i bought the phone).

Can someone help me? Does this happen to someone else?

This is what i get EVERY SINGLE TIME when taking pictures, it doesnt matter the resolution or the extra options i select(like auto focus, AI detection etc).

    Hello, the stock camera app is crap, I suggest you use Gcam port for the Zenfone 8, the quality is way ahead of the Asus camera app. I can not post the link so you'll have to search "Gcam Asus Zenfone 8" on Google and it's the first link from Celso Azevedo. You should give it a try.

    I can confirm the extremly long image process. Really annoying.

    Will try gcam now. Using GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.5

    I get this too, but mostly when portrait mode is active. Processing takes place in the background. But if I previrew the image before it finishes I have to wait.

    I believe it is because processing takes place in 64mb image.

    My standard photo mode has a 1.5 second processing time.

    Portrait mode has a 6 to 7 second processing time which drops to 4 to 5 if phone is on performance. Or if I turn off beauty settings.

    My partner's pixel does the same thing and so does my friends HTC

    Sometimes, when taking multiple photos after each other, photos arent even saved! They just dissappear.

    I suggest using GCam.

    I use GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.5 and the application crashes, blocking the camera. Can't shoot in slowmotion.
