Default [Q] Actually recording videos

Am I an idiot or is the only way to record a video is turning off the screen and then holding it landscape and hitting volume?

Whenever I hit the camera app while it is unlocked, it only gives me camera and selfie options. I can't find any video recorder shortcut.

This is on the latest firmware (after the OTA).

If you open the camera app. Tap the button in the lower right, you should see a page with options, one of which is video

There's no button in the lower right.

The button on the lower left only gives me selfie and camera.

That's not looking right to me. I've got a series of options on my camera that aren't showing there. Anything non stock in your ROM??

Back to the store I think, probably something wrong with the phone software, but if you haven't altered anything, they should just exchange it.

I figured out the problem.

It's cause I changed to the Google Now Launcher.

Can't believe the camera relies on BlinkFeed...

Is there any way to get around this? Or any other launchers that don't do this?

I'm using apex launcher, with a shortcut to activate blinkfeed, like it a lot, no issues with the camera or anything else that I've found. Glad you got it working.
