    They changed it to reduce the "thinking point" for users coming from other platforms (i.e. Most users) which are used to a defined camera button.

    What's funny is that the new LG G3 now added the ability to "touch anywhere" to take a picture, and is touting it as a new feature,.. even has an ad for it.

    "1. Touch and Shoot

    As the name implies, LG has made it as simple as possible to shoot photos on the G3 camera. Unlike many Android camera apps that require you to tap a dedicated button to snap a photo, LG has incorporated touch to focus and touch to shoot into one action. Simply tap anywhere on the screen and the G3 will snap your photo. A nice touch."


    So I'm sure it's only a matter of time before BlackBerry follows suit and has to "copy" this amazing feature.

    Thank the focus groups.

    Sorry, but I believe it was more user friendly before the upgrade to 10.3.1

    That is your opinion. I like many find it not to be better. I can no longer use the camera for work as standing on a ladder to take a photo I have to by law have at least one hand in the ladder. To actually click that button I would drop my phone. It is actually making my life harder. There are many people that find this a problem also. Also BlackBerry users are still using BlackBerry because they like BlackBerry not because they want to use an android or iPhone clone.

    They made the change based on data they've gathered. The majority did not want touch anywhere to take a pic.

    They technically could of kept it in as "advanced mode" to keep the old camera.

    I am understand. It is logic and simple.
    Lazy people, who take photo only in case "selfie with face recognition autofocus", needn't manual focus.
    Rest of normal people want quick manual focus and are able to use icon or buttons to take photo.

    LOL. Sorry, but manual focus to selected area is user totaly unfriendly tragedy on 10.2.x ..
    In case to refocus on same area, you must move focus rectangle somewhere out and return back to same place. It is SLOW and annoying/irritating.
    Much quick and better: simply tap to selected area for refocus on 10.3.1

    I liked touching anywhere also. I was looking at some picks I took when I first got my phone. Those picks look much better than current pics I've taken. I wish they didn't keep going backwards with it.

    Problem is I bet the majority of their users don't participate in those studies.

    If it's an accurate focus group, then it should have 0.1% BlackBerry users. Lol
