    Anyone else have this issue? When I am in text message app or google hangout or a few other apps when I try and take a pic within the app the camera doesn't always work. It hangs a lot. Screen stays black or image is stuck. Also takes forever to open the camera and there is a lot of lag even trying to attach a photo while in iMessage. So when I am sending a text and I click. The camera icon there is a lot of lag opening or starting the camera. Just curious if it's me or anyone else has a similar issue.

    What firmware are you on. Yesterday was my first time attempting to take low light pictures since updating to 8.1.2 and when I would go back and forth between using a flash and auto flash, the camera would not be able to focus. I wonder if there's a glitch with the camera app and 8.1.2.

    I'm having an issue when trying to record video at times on my 6+. I will start recording and then about 5-10 seconds into the recording it freezes and I have to close the camera app and reopen. I have missed a few video opportunities that were important and couldn't get back. Hoping for a fix. Anyone else have an issue like that?

    I have never had this issue once. In fact one of the reasons I am so happy with the 6+ compared to my previous 3 years of being on Android, is that with iOS the camera app opens immediately and takes pictures immediately without focus lag. It sounds like you have a faulty phone or need iOS reinstalled.

    Please let this not be a normal issue. Mine is shipping out soon. :(

    I missed a bunch of photos because of the same issue. Check your camera settings to see if 60fps is turned on. Try turning it off and see if the camera still freezes.

    So iMessage has quit on me twice today. so when I am in iMessage and I click on the camera icon... It takes about 3 seconds to open the 3 selections
    -Photo Library
    -Take photo or video

    Then a bit of lag to perform the other actions. Really getting annoying it is crashing a lot..
