I am having issues with nexus 5x, with flash on & HDR off a the flash is pathetic in a Dark room the flash goes off but all the photos are dark? Or when there is a little light with flash forced on the room is no brighter??? Help.

In a bright room if I force the flash on the photo goes dark? This makes no logic?

A your else having problems?

Same problem here, when battery goes below 15% and i take a picture of near subject, the photo is almost all black. Does it happen to someone other?
I think however is a simply intrinsic energy saver...

Here is a solution

Hi guys i have a solution for this

The problem is android optimize the camera app for battery life

go to configuration->battery->battery optimization
then select option "all aplications", search for camera app and select no optimize

try again and compare

Still not working guys.
Shooting a photo with flash and the photo goes all dark.
Fix pls?????
It may sound stupid, but use the WhatsApp app..
I tried every other app than the stock camera and it doesn't take the photo after/before the flash turned on..
Tell me if it did work to you ?
*** EDIT : another solution that worked the best for me :
Use the camera nx with the zsl ! It works great with the flash unlike the stock camera app..

    Here's another thread with the same issue:

    What have you guys done about your flash issues? Warranty?

    I'm in the process of warrantying now along with garryboy. Just waiting for Google to send me the refurb unit before I send them mine.
