    When I first open my camera app, yes, I get a lot of interference. I do not understand why this is. Interference is the best word I can come up with for what happens but I will try my best to describe it in more detail.

    Basically a bunch of lines show up across the screen for the first few seconds but I have had it last up to 20 seconds before. It always ends up going away. It usually moves really fast and the lines are usually similar colors to the environment but will also be something unrelated like a lot of reds and purples in the same color family as the environment. If I take a picture right at that time, they will take with the picture.


    So that is what the lines look like that I told you about. But they always end up going away, that's the thing. Do you think I should try to get this phone repaired somehow? The place I bought it from was one of those small hole in the wall places, so I am worried that it may be a refurbished phone even though it appeared to be in amazing condition. It works great other then that one thing and also I think that the GPS acts funny sometimes. It will show me driving into the grass basically and then suddenly snap out of it.

    I really love this phone and I just don't want to think that I got ripped off on it or anything. I may need to ask them if it is actually new or refurbished. They said that if anything happens to the phone in 30 days then they will repair it for me. But when I got there, of course, it did not do anything and worked fine.

    Anyone know whats going on? Thanks in advance and for your help in my previous thread!

    Those lines looks like it could be fault in the camera itself. Definitely get that S10 replaced under warranty.
