    I guess this may be an easy one for somebody to answer. If I take a photo with my Note 2 camera, there are 2 identical photos in Gallery! Any idea why?

    something to do with file management in android. I find it annoying as never sure how to manage them!

    The cam might have burst mode when pressing too long on the cam's button?

    So I am not the only one it happens to?

    You may be right. I checked burst mode and it was off but I tried taking a photo and gave the button the briefest possible press and it just took one photo.

    Maybe you are on HDR mode? It will leave you with 2 pictures. You get to pick the best one. On the iPhone, there is a way to turn off storing the original picture, but on Note 2, I cannot find this option on HDR.

    Yes I nearly always use HDR mode but the "best of 2" thing seems weird - I can never see any difference! Thanks for all your replies :)

    Take a picture of something with a light source in it. You will then see difference between the 2 pictures. For example, if you are taking a picture of person in front of a sunset. The better picture will have both the person and the sun clearly visible. While the other one will have person in the dark because of the bright sun.

    Reset camera to default settings then see if it works ok :)
