    Any time I try to take a photo in a very dark place without the flash, I get this blue interference in the picture and the video gets very flickery. Anyone else have this problem? It happens in any dark place. I just want to know if it's normal for this phone or if I have to swap the phone out.

    Here is a sample of what I am talking about. Granted it was very dark in the room but i'd rather have a dark photo than all these blue lines. You will most likely have to view it at full res to see what I mean

    This happens to me using the front facing camera, not the main one though

    Hmm happens in both of my cameras :-/ It takes a few seconds for it to start showing up. As the camera adjusts to the light. Also in low light I sometimes get strange lines. Perfectly fine, borderline awesome, in bright light though.

    It's just noise, guys. That's what happens when you shoot low light at high ISO.

    Yeah looks like the same problem. Guess it's just the way the camera is. So much for better low light performance lol.

    Agreed, but the video shouldn't get that much noise and flicker that badly like it does towards to the end of the video I posted though.

    Yeah I don't think that's right. It's doing it In barely low light too. I just swapped my phone, I don't wanna do it again lol.
