Hi,

I have a big problem with the galaxy s5 camera. Sometimes the camera starts flickering.. I mean a white coloured band comes for a millisecond on the right side of the screen and repeats every second. This is also seen while recording videos, and its very annoying. How can this problem be solved?

To further check the issue I found that this only happens with the stock camera app and does not happen with any other camera app like aosp camera etc. So is the issue hardware or software related?

Maybe you should try a factory reset and see if the issue persists. If it does, definitely return it!

I have the same problem one times, I hope that this is only a SW issue and not HW. With the picture or with the video quality I have no problem.
