Rather serious camera issues

Some Galaxy S5 units affected by camera issues

galaxys5featuredFirst, we learned that the Galaxy S5 can be spoofed by fake fingerprints and now we have news that the impressive 16-megapixel sensor is having some rather serious issues.

The issue, which seems to only be affecting Verizon devices, causes units to pop up with a random “Camera Error” with seemingly no reason behind the issue. Once this error is received, the camera sensor becomes permanently disabled with none of the usual software tricks working. The only way to fix the problem is to get the device swapped under warranty, which Samsung will do if you call a number or if you go to a carrier.

According to The Verge, the issue isn’t too big yet but it’s still something to be aware of.

The 2013 Nexus 7 being hit with some GPS issues

nexus-7-2013Have you bought a new Nexus 7, only to find the GPS doesn’t work? You’re not alone; several other people have come across this issue. For those without a 2013 Nexus 7, the issue with the GPS seems to cause minor flakiness in apps that use it to a complete hard lock of the tablet.

Google has said that they’ll be issuing a patch for this flaw “at some point” but if you’re one of the few who’s plagued by this, some say that disabling the Google Play Services might fix the issue.
