    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

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

    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.

    Bought the phone outright. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    I just found that with the latest update you can have the camera but your device can only be on the swipe screen. you cant have finger print or pattern etc lock

    Um, not so my friend.

    I use Pattern Lock and I do indeed still use the camera from the Lock Screen.

    Did you ever sort this out? I noticed the same thing (and i haven't updated my phone at all - bought it outright). I've played worth settings for HOURS and you definitely can't see the camera shortcut icon when you have fingerprint or pattern security on. So annoying.

    Wrong. I am on Lollipop and I use fingerprint access and have the camera on my lock screen. It works just fine, like it did with KitKat.

    Well, you can say 'wrong' all you like but it doesn't make it appear for me! Hahaha. Do you have any practical suggestions? I can show you screenshots if you don't believe me.
