    Hi all, had my one x now for about a week, coming from the iphone 4...

    the problem i have is that when im recording video in either 720p or 1080p it is sharp for a couple of seconds then the autofocus keeps cutting in and it goes blurry for a second or 2 till it refocusess then it goes back to normal... really anoying, its killing my videos !!!:mad:

    so does anyone else have this problem or is my phone knackered ?

    I would turn Continuous AF off for video - if there is an option to do this.

    I'm having the same exact problem with my new Samsung Galaxy S3: but it only happens when I have it recording while I'm driving (attached to a windshield-mounted holder). It's like it keeps trying to focus on the windshield but even then it can't. If I'm recording a regular "home video" of something, it doesn't seem to have this problem.
    Also, I don't have an option to turn continuous autofocus on or off.

    Sorry for posting this so late; I haven't been on a forum for awhile and forgot to check the last post date.
