    Default Samsung Galaxy S5 Camera widget lockscreen

    Anyone know how to get the quick access camera on the lockscreen?
    New to android, have played with all the settings... I've seen pretty much everyone other S5 have a quick access to their camera on the lockscreen besides mine.
    Also has anyone figured out the god damn shutter sound yet? So annoying

    Settings > Lock screen > Camera shortcut. No idea about the shutter noise specifically. I keep my phone on vibrate or silent pretty much exclusively which takes care of it I suppose.

    Go to the camera enter the settings and there is a option to turn off shutter noise.

    You must be in Australia ? I have the same issue and spoke to samsung live chat and they said "Unfortunately the Australian models of the S5 do not have the feature where you can add a camera shortcut to the Lock Screen."
    This sucks, ive tried using 3rd party apps and the shortcuts still wont work!

    How frustrating! Camera shortcut and shutter noise are a big deal for me. I take photos constantly, and the noise is a pain in the ***. And seriously, no lock screen shortcut? Even my iPhone had that

    Yeah, this sucks.. definitely a let down. Hopefully they do an update for Australian users to enable the feature, if that's even possible

    Mine is the same. I don't know why they do this it's stupid. Though i know someone with an S5 on Optus and they have shortcuts. I bought mine outright but should'nt be different.

    Not totally positive, but Australian law may require the phone camera to have a sounds when taking pics.....

    I've spoke to some people here in aus with an S5 that have the shortcut.I don't though
    Most display S5's have it.The model number in about device on them is different too. An X instead of I on the end of the number.

    I have the S5 with Optus in Australia and I don't have the option to have the camera on the lock screen or to silence the shutter.. which I didn't know when I got the phone on the contract. I wish they would do an "what you dont get if you're in Australia" memo!

    Cover lockscreen has done the trick for me. Not bad with all the shortcuts on the side.
