I don't know about the fix but I do know what you mean. It's so slow that you can almost assume it's already taken the pic and you'll start moving on to something else before it finally snaps. I have a seriously nice DSLR for picture taking anyway, I find phone cameras to be really useful for snapping close-ups of things I can't see very well... like the serial number sticker on the back of an appliance....etc. Then I can blow it up and it's nice and clear. Other than that, cameras on phones are cute, just don't judge the whole device on the things camera.
