    Well, i got my lovely new note 2 on Saturday only for it later to say 'Camera Failed' whenever i try to take pictures and try out that burst option (really cool btw) I have searched around the internet, followed peoples advice with the same problem on the S3 to no luck. I have tried resetting it to factory, deleted interfering apps but nothing! Third party apps don't even work..

    I have even contacted Samsung today only for them to say it might be fault and i should take it to a workshop, but i've seen other people say it can be fixed without taking it for repair, does anyone have any help? I need the camera for work..

    Sorry for all the text..

    Have you tried downloading a Camera App such as Camera Zoom FX? It overrides the existing camera.

    Why not just take it back to the shop & get a bew one?, you are within 7 days so if you are in the UK they have to replace it with a brand new one, i took mine back last friday as one of the gyro's stopped working! all good now though ;-)

    I have a different problem here. Sometimes when I launch the camera app, the app launches swiftly, but the camera preview stay blank (black) for 5 seconds or so before it finally shows something. Is anyone else encountering the same thing?
    I contacted Samsung and they told me to reset the camera app. Well it didn't help.

    NO unfortunately samsung aren't to helpful like that, my problem is all sorted now. Before i took it back i was told to try resetting it back to factory (wouldn't advise) using a third party camera app, or seeing if any other apps are interfering. If it's still working it just sounds a it laggy, but if not you are going to have to take it back.

    Hi. I am new to the android world. All my previous phones were from apple. I just
    got my note 2 and its been amazing :) My query is with the gallery icon on the note 2.
    I have only taken about 40 pics but each time I click the icon, it does take some time for the pics to appear. I must add here that all my facebook albums are also displayed. Is this normal?

    Yes this is normal, I think the delay is caused by it looking for all the Facebook albums, I have found that if I go into the gallery & then quickly go back out and in again it loads quicker. There are ways to remove the fb, albums but I prefer to have them :)

    I had the "Camera Failed" message on my S2 Skyrocket. I had to send it back and they replaced what they needed to and sent me back the same phone. Very annoying process since I was without a phone.
