You have a Samsung phone, right? Because so do I Before you take the picture, tap on your subject to "manually" focus it. The flash will come on for a moment, and a green square should come up where you tapped. If the square it red, do it again because that means it didn't focus. Once the flash turns off, snap the picture. The timing takes some practice. It'll keep that same focus and lighting, so it won't be so ungodly saturated.
