15 Ways To Fix Blurry Photos and Videos on Galaxy A25

15 Ways To Fix Blurry Photos and Videos on Galaxy A25

The Samsung Galaxy A25 has a decent camera, but sometimes images and videos can turn out blurry unexpectedly. This frustrating issue can be caused by various factors, from simple user error to software problems or potential hardware defects.

Why Are My Galaxy A25 Photos and Videos Blurry?

  • Dirty lens: Smudges, fingerprints, or dust on the camera lens are a primary cause of blurry visuals.
  • Camera app issues: The camera app might be outdated or have software glitches interfering with image processing.
  • Incorrect focus: Blurry photos often happen when the camera isn’t focused properly on your subject.
  • Poor lighting: Low-light environments can cause camera shake or force the camera to use settings that make images blurry.
  • Software conflicts: Issues with your phone’s operating system or conflicting apps could negatively affect the camera.

1. Clean the camera lens

A dirty lens is the most common culprit. Use a soft, lint-free cloth (like a microfiber cloth) to gently wipe the camera lens clean.

  1. Locate the rear camera lenses.
  2. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to remove smudges and fingerprints.

2. Check for camera app updates

App updates often include fixes and improvements to the camera’s functionality. Ensure your camera app is up-to-date.

  1. Open the Google Play Store app.
  2. Tap your profile icon in the top right.
  3. Tap Manage apps & device.
  4. Tap Updates available. Look for the camera app and tap Update if needed.

3. Adjust focus

Autofocus may not always work perfectly. Manually focusing, especially in macro or low-light situations, can help ensure sharp images.

  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Tap on the area of the screen where you want the camera to focus.

4. Use good lighting

Well-lit environments naturally lead to better photos. If possible, take your photos and videos in brighter locations or use external lighting.

5. Enable HDR

HDR (High Dynamic Range) improves detail in both bright and dark areas of a photo. It can help create clearer, more balanced images.

  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Look for the HDR icon and tap to toggle it on.

6. Use the camera’s stabilization features

Stabilization reduces blur caused by shaky hands. Check if your Galaxy A25 has optical image stabilization (OIS) or other stabilization modes.

  1. Open the Camera app and look for settings related to stabilization.
  2. Enable available stabilization features.

7. Avoid digital zoom

Digital zoom crops your photo and magnifies it, reducing quality. For better quality, get closer to your subject instead of using zoom (if possible).

8. Restart your phone

A simple restart can often clear up temporary software hiccups.

  1. Press and hold the power button.
  2. Tap Restart.

9. Clear camera app cache and data

Clearing the camera app’s cache and data can fix glitches caused by corrupted temporary files.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Apps.
  3. Locate and select the Camera app.
  4. Tap Storage.
  5. Tap Clear cache and then Clear data.

10. Check storage space

Low storage space can interfere with the camera’s ability to save photos and videos. Make sure you have sufficient space on your device.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Device care.
  3. Tap Storage.

11. Adjust camera settings

Explore your camera app’s settings and experiment with different resolutions or modes to see if it makes a difference in photo quality.

12. Try a third-party camera app

If the default camera app is glitchy, try a reputable third-party camera app from the Google Play Store. This will help you isolate whether the issue lies with the app or your phone itself.

13. Factory reset your device

A factory reset will erase all your data and revert your phone to its original settings. Consider this a last resort if other solutions fail. Make sure to back up your data before proceeding.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap General management.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Factory data reset.
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts.

14. Update your phone’s software

Samsung regularly releases software updates that may include bug fixes and performance improvements. Check if any updates are available for your phone.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Software update.
  3. Tap Download and install.

15. Seek professional repair

If none of the solutions work, the blurriness could indicate a hardware issue with your camera module. In this case, contact Samsung Support or visit an authorized repair center for further assistance.

Final thoughts

Blurry photos and videos on your Galaxy A25 can be frustrating, but the solutions above can help you get back to taking clear and sharp images. Start with the simplest solutions and progress through the more involved ones if needed.


  1. What if only my selfies are blurry? Check the front-facing camera lens for smudges and clean it if necessary. Also, explore settings within your camera app specifically for the front-facing camera.
  2. Why are videos blurry but photos fine? Video stabilization might be an issue. Check your camera settings for video stabilization modes and enable them.
  3. Could a phone case interfere with the camera? Some poorly-designed cases might obstruct the camera lens or flash. Try removing your case temporarily to see if the problem persists.
  4. Will I lose my photos if I clear the camera app’s data? No, clearing the camera app’s data only affects temporary files, not your saved photos and videos.
  5. What’s the best way to prevent blurry photos and videos? Keep your camera lens clean, use good lighting, hold your phone steady (or use a tripod), and avoid digital zoom whenever possible.
