Whether you are trying to take a picture for Instagram, or just looking to snap a shot of your cat, the camera refuses to work and reveals a warning message that states: "Warning: Camera Failed."

Samsung failed again. Lets face it. samsung only got big because other OEMs was bad on android. Now it starts to look really good and Samsung will drop sales.

Yes it will beacuse the competition is a lot harder and is getting harder every year too. I see more people considering or buying Sony, HTC and LG phones than 2-3 years ago. Iphone 6 will be a hit for sure. Just imagine all those iphone 4-5s owners who wanted a bigger screen and went for android instead of hold on to their 4s. Iphone 6 will be the big game changer for iphone users and they have been waiting including me. But android phones are extremely good today so lets see what happens. But I am 100% sure Samsung wont sell as much.

To me it seems more like a hardware problem than software. Especially if resetting the device to factory doesn't help. It should be covered by the manufacturer warranty for defective hardware.

Hopefully this isn't a hardware issue, that could result in a recall. Samsung doesn't make crap devices. My guess is a simple software bug, that'll get handled in a couple weeks. Cool your heels fellas, a fix is on the way.

Damn, hopefully its just a software issue than can be fixed with an update. I had this happen once on my One M7 but I just had to restart the phone and it hasn't happened again.

Another reason to never get a newly released phone the first month it's out! Let the early adopters find the problems and sort it out.

Selfie failed. One wonder they have a band-aid on the back, it's already broken

Nokia Lumia's don't have this problem, and even an 8.7 mp Nokia phone takes better pictures....
