    One of the few things that are bugging me on my new Torch is that it does not seem to take clear photos of text. I did this all the time with my Curve but the Torch pics come out blurry every time.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have tried both of those things to no avail. My curve used to take stunning photos of text...

    yup. The autofocus isn't as good as the old 3.2mp on my Tour. Sucks.

    Just tried with mine and the text came out pretty clear. What OS are you running?

    My text pictures come out very clear. Make sure you don't zoom, don't hold the phone too close, and check if you're using singleshot or continuous focus. Mine do better with Continuous on in the Autofocus section.

    A lot of folks are stating that the autofocus works much better in .448 and .450.

    I don't have any bluriness whether using text or auto modes. I get good text resolution at about 4" and greater from the page. Anything nearer doesn't focus well, even in closeup mode.

    Have you thumbed through the camera options by chance? There is a section called Scene Mode. If you scroll all the way down, there is a Text mode.
    Hope that helps

    I have the same problem here, I've tried all the different settings from continuous to single shot, the text mode. I've upgraded my OS twice.

    I only seems that my focus does not work at all, if I take a scenery picture it comes out great.

    Is the focus on the torch a physical part? or is that being managed withing the OS.

    I bought my phone slightly used, but that means no warranty, so I guess I'll be stuck with the problem until I get a new phone.

    Try macro mode? Works best for close-up pics.
