Camera Issue with Voice Control

    I have a Verizon SGS3 running stock jb touchwiz.

    I have voice command activated for the camera.

    Last night I was at a concert (Coldplay) and experienced some strangeness. At times when it was very loud in the area, the camera would close on its own. It was like it was hearing a command to close the camera.

    It took me a good while to realize that's what was going on, but it's definitely the case. I disabled voice dial and it didn't happen again. I did re-test by enabling voice dial and it started happening again.

    Anyone else experience this? I guess no solution other than to disable voice commands for the camera when in an extremely loud environment?

    I tested it out once. I can say many many different words and it functioned. Random jibberish activated items as well.

    what do you mean by "functioned". I'm not saying the loud noise took a picture, I'm saying it caused the camera app to close. That, I have not heard before.

    No one has come across that before?

    The voice command does require a quiet location. Loud noise can cause problems. Just the nature of the beast.
