Bokeh mode with new updates on Xz2 premium

Hi guys, 


The XZ2 premium had a fantastic bokeh mode when I first got it about 6 months ago. But about two updates ago, I went into bokeh mode as normal to find out that the whole mode had changed. It now looks like what I used to have on my ancient HTC phone about 5 years ago: It makes you set the focus, then says it will take two pictures, and then about 3/4 of the time it ends up saying "could not blur background"... and on the rare occasion that it CAN blur the background, it almost always blurs it poorly. Has anyone else experienced this change recently? I was hoping they'd fix it with the previous update, but it's still the same and I can't find any forum posts about it, or any way to fix it. 


Any help or input would be greatly appreciated! I use the bokeh mode a lot at work and its decline in quality is really disappointing to me.
