    This is the second time something really weird happened while using the camera. The first time, the screen turned off and the phone made strange sounds (not by speaker). I power cycled and it was fine. This time the screen stayed on and I managed to get screenshots, and it returned to normal after locking/unlocking. Is this a software bug or bigger problem needing repair/replacement?

    Here are 2 of 5 screenshots.

    I'm curious please ... why are each of those screenshots stitched vertically on the right and horizontally on the bottom? How were they acquired?

    I can't duplicate that effect on my N4 either by simultaneous power/low-vol or telling Utter! to "take a screenshot".

    Does your phone have a case or covering that is partially obscuring the lens?

    No, that line stitching/wrapping effect was a malfunction. It moved across the screen. It's not the only graphical problem you can see in the screenshot, and the fact that it showed up in a screenshot (taken internally via power+vol down) tells me it's not a problem with the screen.

    I'm looking for information about how severe the problem is, because it is obviously a problem.

    edit: but we can trade units if you want to replicate this "feature"!

    Assuming that the phone is a Nexus 4 because of the forum you chose, it's certainly a warranty issue that you should raise with Google.
