    Default N4 camera pics/flash issues

    Why does the N4's camera freeze up once in a while? Sometimes I take it out and just want to take a simple pic, but it doesn't want to take a shot. I have to hard boot the phone in order for the camera to work.

    Last night I used my N4 to take pics at night. Instead of taking a picture the camera flash turned on and stayed on until i went to the home screen. At that point the flash turned off, but it still wouldn't take a picture.

    I have the same exact problems. On the first, instead of restarting the phone, I restart the app - sometimes takes a few attempts - very frustrating. The flash issue hasn't come up too often - maybe because I don't take too many pics in the dark - but it did happen to me on Thursday.

    I have searched these forums and Google, can't find an answer. Seriously considering returning the phone to T-Mo

    Is it normal for the flash to come on and off while pressing the screen and focusing?

    Never happened to me. I usually use CameraZOOMfx but the regular Camera app has never failed me.

    I'm trying to figure out why I cannot see the camera application in settings anywhere. I even looked under all applications.

    You mean there's no Camera app at all? Have you tried unlocking it just so it will reset? Really odd.

    Not 100% positive, but I think the camera is actually part of the Gallery app.

    It's the white balance detection, it'll be fixed in a software update (I hope), just set it manually and it'll be fine. Pain in the a** though I agree.

    Another fix needed? They are piling up a bit for 4.2.2

    I have a camera, camcorder and gallery app.. Not a dig on that one, I am just surprised it isn't there

    I have also had my N4 freeze while in the camera app. Had to hard reboot.
