    is it just me or is there a significant delay when you hit the picture button, before it takes a picture? And, it's hard to tell exactly when it takes the picture. there is a click sound that appears to be when the photo is taken. and then the screen freezes for a second or two, making you think that is what the picture was, but it is not. I had an older slower phone before and this S5 seems to have weird timing with the photo taking. (it takes great photos, tho, as long as you can figure out when the pictures is actually being taken).

    In properly lit situations, mine is pretty responsive. Certain situations do have a degree of lag though.

    My S5, if in an outdoor scene that is really bright, is very fast.

    Indoors, or low light scenes, it is slower, enough so to aggravate you.

    The Note 4 is the same way though, very good cameras on both of them, just not the snappiest cracker in the box.
