The camera shutter sound is a highly debated topic among users of all kinds of smartphones, not just Samsung Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3. But in today’s article, we’ll focus on this specific model. If you want to take pictures and videos with it, you can either accept this sound or try to find a way to get rid of it.
The clicking sound is actually mandatory in many places within the U.S., on the grounds that anyone photographed should be able to hear this sound. It’s all about preventing the situations when photos of certain subjects are taken secretly, without their agreement. But how about when you want to take a selfie and you don’t want to have all the eyes on you? That’s what it usually happens when you’re in a quiet place and this shutter sound pierces through the silence.
We’ll get there in a moment but, until then, here are some facts you cannot deny:
- As long as you have your Samsung Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3 set to the loud ring mode, your default camera app will always make that shutter sound whenever you take a picture;
- You could try to plug in a set of headphones, on the premises that if the music sound doesn’t come out, the shutter sound shouldn’t come out either, but that isn’t the case;
- The camera shutter sound is not a media sound, but a notification sound and your Samsung Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3 was set, from the factory, to prioritize any notification sound up until the user decides otherwise and blocks the notifications by switching to any other mode than the loud ring mode!
With these three simple observations, we have pretty much summed up the essence of how to turn off the Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3 camera shutter sound. You have two options that you can start taking into account right now:
- You always set the device to mute when you want to take a picture;
- You give up on the default camera app and start using a third-party app that doesn’t include this disturbing feature.
We know, the first option may be a bit annoying or at least frustrating as you will either forget to mute the device before you take the snapshot or forget to switch it back to the loud ring mode when you’re done. The latter can easily lead to missing important calls throughout the day, which isn’t pleasant at all.
Consequently, the most accessible and simple option is to change the app. You have the Play Store at your service and you can browse for, analyze and compare reviews until you decide for the best rated third-party camera app that doesn’t make the shutter sound. Your Samsung Galaxy A9, A8, A7, A6, A5, A4, A3 should work well with it.
