    I've noticed when I placed my phone camera down or cover it with my hand so the screen is dark.. and I focus on the darkness, then remove my hand.. the camera stays black or really dark... can anyone try this and see if theirs does this too?
    Specifically talking about the 7 plus dual camera.

    Nope, I tried it a few times and a few different ways and definitely did not experience this.

    Yes, when I follow your steps, I can reproduce that glitch.

    Mine keeps the image dark, because it has adjusted for the low light. As soon as the camera focuses, it returns to normal. I don't think this is a glitch. The S7 Edge I have does a similar thing, until they both get a chance to re-adjust to the lighting.

    No. The point is that it doesn't readjust after going black. It stays black even when the lense is no longer covered.

    Here's a picture of a classroom:

    Here's the exact same picture have following the steps from the OP:

    Then my devices are not doing this. I see a darker image after I move it, because the camera is adjusted to low light. Every camera phone on my desk at work is doing the same thing my 7+ is doing. (Priv, S7, S7E, 6S). I am on the 10.1 developer beta for what it's worth.

    Edit: To the poster above me, I understand exactly what you're talking about. I am not saying it's not real, just that I cannot reproduce it. Are either of you on 10.1?

    Mine stays dark for a few seconds, but readjusts when there's light again. It doesn't stay pitch black once I uncover it.

    I have a T-Mo 7+ 128GB Black

    I am not able to produce this result. No matter how long I keep the lens covered, just as soon as I uncover it, it instantly goes back to a bright and proper image. 7+ on 10.1 beta

    I can confirm this issue is fixed in iOS 10.1 beta. Doesn't happen to me anymore so it's clearly not a hardware issue like I was suspecting.
