Do you use snapchat? I had this issue occasionally happen to my GS4 when I had switched from snapchat camera to another app or the home screen and then to the stock samsung camera.

I solved it by closing both apps and restarting the one that I needed. I haven't experienced this issue with my GS5 yet, but I've been using it for less than 24 hours.

Yep. Returned mine yesterday for a replacement yesterday. Factory reset 3 times and even had the Samsung rep wipe it from scratch with Samsung image. No dice. Said it was a hardware failure. Get it returned soon.

Sent from my SM-G900V using xda app-developers app

Facing the same Issue on T-mobile SM G900T.
Talked to Samsng support online, but they say that replacements aren't a part of Samsung's policy. Bull****. Should've got myself a M8 :/
