If you have ever wanted to take a bunch of pics really fast on a smartphone, but had to wait for the auto focus to kick in; OR if you get annoyed (and a little dizzy) every time the camera refocuses every couple of seconds when you’re watching a video shot on a smartphone, this tip is for you.

By simply tapping and holding your smartphone screen on the image you want to remain in focus, you actually can lock-in the focus when you take pics or shoot video. This especially comes in handy when the subject of your photo/video is sitting still – There is no need to refocus if you slightly adjust the position of your smartphone.
