The cameras of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro usually work very reliably, but it can happen that one or the other camera on the back has an alleged defect and no longer focuses properly.

In most cases, however, there is no real defect at all, but a focus element that no longer focuses properly. So what can you do to solve the problem of focusing on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro?

Camera lens of Mate 20 Pro is dirty

The natural greasy film of your finger can wet the lens when you hold the device in your hand or pull it out of your pocket. This then leads to photos and videos that are blurred, milky or blurred.

Wipe the lens with a cloth or your T-shirt shortly before taking a picture.

If you are in the expert mode of the camera app (Pro Mode), it may be that it is set to manual focus. This means that the camera does not focus automatically. Here we recommend you to select the camera mode "Auto" and then to check whether the camera focuses again.

In this mode, focusing is automatic and blurred images should no longer appear.
