Samsung Galaxy S5 owners with camera bug must replace their phone

0. phoneArena 26 Apr 2014, 12:17 posted on

The other day, we told you about a strange problem that is affecting some of Verizon's customers toting the Samsung Galaxy S5. When trying to use the camera on the device, a notice pops up saying "Warning: Camera Failed." We have seen this also happen on the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy S4. We're not sure what Samsung and Verizon will offer for the older models, but for the Galaxy S5, Verizon wants those seeing such a message to contact Verizon...

So, what do you do when your replacement fails? They don't even know what the problem is Lol! They better hope this doesn't get to the major news networks. They are really going to shoot themselves in the foot with that commercial.

They know very well what the problem is. And which fault is it. But keep quiet.

Samsung keeps quiet to protect Verizon's honor . And keep the business there.
If it was Samsung's fault , you should know it by now , though. This is US. The country of Apple. And no one there cares about the Samsung's honor. And it couldn't be kept in secret in the izombie land.

All companies have some issues with their devices.
Why is everybody making a fuss if it's a Samsung?

Not sure really....Samsung fans and their company for that matter never claimed their phones to be perfect.

It is funny tho with all the ads against Apple Samsung has done...

i'have been working with some phone repair service center.

believe me, samsung has the highest rate of return than any other brand, not because of they sold many units,but the percentage of faulty units is much much higher.

Looks like Apple isnt the only ones having to replace phones these days. Good job by all: Apple, Samsung and Verizon.

The case here is different.
It's not Samsung's fault, but Verizon's.

Good for you to be Apple's advocate, though

so then tell me how is this Verizon's fault?

you know that Samsung has to supply Verizon with a distinct model of S5 to work on their network right? just because this is only happening on Verizon Galaxy S5's does not automatically make it their fault.
