o ring drop issue
Has anyone found official notice from Samsung about the o ring dropping into view and blocking the front ("selfie") camera? There are a lot of posts about people experiencing this (I am one) but it seems really hush hush from Samsung. I can take my phone back to my provider, but since it hasn't been officially stated as an issue from Samsung so I'd get a "like new refurbished" replacement. Which, to me, sounds like a slap in the face :(

Front Camera Distortion
Does anyone seem to have front camera distortion or is it just me? It seems like the wide angle lens is causing the picture to be distorted

Re: I have another issue with camera output
Hey,

I own a Samsung Galaxy S5 and had the same problem only at my phone the dark spot was in the left corner and if you ask me how I solve it?

Well First I tried to clean but no result and the problem was that in all pictures I had a spot in the left corner so I thought of a solution and came with an idea .I bought them Cellz a camera lens with Macro ,wide lens and so on and by magic the spot didn't appear anymore,maybe you should give it a try

Re: I have another issue with camera output
I too have the same problem. Out of the blue, a dark, round shadow has appeared in the center of the lens in both pictures and video. What is Samsung doing for us if we have this issue? I did not my buy my phone from my carrier. I paid retail for an unlocked phone at a Brandsmart.

galaxy S5
I had this phone for 2 weeks and am already on a replacement. First my phone blacked out. I was given a replacement and now I lost all my contacts in my cloud and device. Tech support has been so busy that 20 minutes waiting still hasn't gotten me any help.

Re: I have another issue with camera output
I am having the same issue...... After using my phone for about 2 months now with any issues, I now see a large darker circle at the center of the image/video. Don't know how to get rid of it. I rest the camera but that didn't help. Even when I use the Google Camera, I am getting the same problem.
