    Hm, something screwy is going on with yours then. Just double-checked mine and I have no problems accessing the mode options when opening the camera from the lock screen. Sorry!

    When I access the camera from the lock screen, modes are not disabled.

    The only time I had any problems with that is the first time I used the camera. The modes were disabled when I had the storage set to my sd card but that is not the case now either. I have been fortunate not to have any of the problems with my phone that I am reading about.

    This is correct :

    The mode button is only disabled if the phone is locked (secured). If the phone is not locked the mode button will be usable regardless of where your photos are stored.

    ie I use fingerprint scanner to secure my device after 3 mins of inactivity. Accessing the camera from the lock screen within those first 3 mins, the mode button works. If its been longer then 3 mins and it requires my finger scan the mode button will not work.

    Why though?
