    i do quite a fair bit of walking and usually listen to the mp3 player on my phone while im doing this.i also use the camera on my phone at the same time which wasnt a problem with my iphone 3gs but when i use the camera on my galaxy s2 while listening to music it turns the music player off.is there a way i can make the music player stay on while going in and out of the camera?

    regards in advance

    No way unless you use a hacked camera apk, or a custom ROM (check XDA for details).

    this is dissapointing that the phone doesnt seem to be able to multitask these two applications when a 3 year old iphone manages it easily!!!

    it may be better to list the things that your phone can do that the 3 year old phone cannot...

    and maybe you should also consider why your new 8mp camera needs to run exclusively. ie, to maintain shutter speed and image quality.

    Unfortunately there will always be restrictions

    Actually you can.

    Download an app like camera 360 then just use double twist music player :)

    a good point but not exactly progress to have your new superphone outdone by something a dinausaur can do.

    cheers,will look in to the camera 360 double twist music player combo :)

    i use the winamp player, and this facilitates the use of camera while still playing music.
