Nexus 5 camera app crashing after the Android 5.1 Lollipop update
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 14, 2015, 2:48 AM
According to the bug report, already filed with Google, after receiving the Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Nexus 5 camera app force-closes when evoked by third-party apps like Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and often even the default camera app in Android itself. Thankfully, the issue can temporarily be fixed by rebooting the handset, but, needless to say, this is not a solution if you need to take a pic in a hurry. After some usage of the phone, the camera bug reappears, and you are in for the whole restart scenarios again, so hopefully Google will be quick to issue a bug fix to the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Nexus 5.
Some units even require two or more reboots to get the camera working again, so we'd hold off on that OTA update notification until Google fixes the issue, which is usually pretty quick to follow.

I don't like google camera app, is very simple, I downloaded Camera FV-5 and Snap Camera apps but after a few days camera and flashlight crash. I deleted these apps and I use google camera app but same problem show me, I don't understand why Google let this problem on their product, I'm very disappointed.
