The 21 MP Sony Camera of  the P8 seems to focus very but very slow comparing to a (ehrr sorry .. Xiamoi Note 4X or the Elephone S7) .
I have noticed there is an important delay even in Sunlight .

I can confirm what you say.
However, the slow focus isn't the unique problem. Also the shots are slow and the photos quality is poor expecially in low light condition.
P8 uses the old MTK camera app without any optimization.
I think that in general P8 Rom needs an important improvement.
I have found a lot of problems such as the strange management of the battery, a delay in the Gmail notifications when the phone is in standby mode, scrolling not fluid with every browser with continuos blocks and so on...
I hope in a Rom update via OTA in a short time that solves these problems and the various bugs like the impossibility of runnig 3D wallpapesr that you have mentioned in another thread.

Agree with you.
Those are too  severe bugs which hasn't even been even fixed on all three 7.0 builds.
Seems Elephone is prematurely celebrating Christmas with lots of wine whilst programming....
I only hope there will be a big improvement soon .
The Hardware is top and the Software is flop

I contacted Elephone technical support two days ago to ask if a P8 Rom update via OTA is scheduled in short time to fix the various bugs and to optimize the software.
I paste here the reply email:

"Hello, thanks for contacting us.
Yes, P8 OTA update will be soon, please wait.
Best regards."

Let's hope...

Meanwhile, I'm continuing to test the phone and I discovered that by enabling the automatic scene detection option in the camera settings the app behaves strangely. In some cases it's no longer possible to deactivate the option, so it's necessary to restore the default camera settings to deactivate the automatic scene detection. Furthermore, when the option is enebled and you change framing, the HDR icon starts to appear and disappear with an annoying message that suggests to use the HDR function.

OK ! OK!
For all those who don't want a slow autofocus and 3D Wahlpaper working should flash  back  to Firmware :
H980PE_V2_E_YDW_P25F_0615  (V16)
(this one works very well)
This rom is downloadable at www.needrom.com !

Now  my P8 is  last Elephone coz i've noticed when they update their own fw with one  or more bugs -  the team is very very lazy to correct them and that's the reality  !

20170615 has better camera-implementation??

Interesting. Maybe I'll try it sometime. But all in all I'm quite confident with the latest firmware-revision.

(PS: Better use the date of the ROM to identify it, not the obscure 'Version'-number)
