    I can't quick launch the camera on my S10. Instructions says press the power button twice quickly. I tried this multiple times but the screen only goes black and locks--no camera. On my old S7 you pressed the Home button twice to quick launch the camera and it worked fine. Could problem on S10 be that I am using an Otterbox Defender which interacts with the power button and makes it difficult to press the button quickly?

    You could always take the Otterbox off and test.

    I have an Otterbox Commuter case on mine and just tried the double press on the power button and the camera opened right up...

    Yes, the problem is the Otterbox Defender case (which is heavier than the Commuter). I took the case off and I could access the camera easily with two presses. That's too bad. I use the camera a lot and will have to do without the quick launch benefit or get a different case. Thanks for the replies.

    Maybe try remapping your Bixby button to launch the camera and see if that will work with your Otterbox case?

    I can do it with my Defender Pro, but you do have to to double tap fairly quickly

    I figured out how to remap the Bixby button to open the camera as djlee0314 suggested. Works great--thanks!

    Did you get this to work from the lock screen as well? I can double tap power to get to camera from screen off state, but can't get it to work with the Bixby remap. I also don't like the double tap since I have SOS enabled and often accidentally press that.
