One of the reasons why you should buy the latest flagship from Google is certainly a great single camera with night mode. But what if the application that runs the camera does not work? Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are struggling with more problems.
The end of the year promises to be very busy for Google support, which on average every week receives dozens of requests for help with the problems of the premiere Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Corporate flags have again faced a significant problem. This time the complications affected a single camera, which is one of the greatest assets of smartphones from the Mountain View corporation. What happened this time?
The camera is great, but it does not work
We know very well that some applications like Instagram and Snapchat require the camera to be available for operation. This is usually done in the form of a single click, however, in the case of Pixel everything is in the box. Many users have encountered such a critical error, as shown below:As if that was not enough, not only foreign applications trigger a failure – an attempt to run even the camera's default application results in a message that the driver and the lens are not connected. Restart of the smartphone only helps temporarily and similarly the restoration of flagships to the factory settings is observed, which means a big error in the software and the application code of the camera. The reason may also lie in the security lines that incorrectly grant access to the device to foreign applications.
When will Google fix the vulnerabilities?
The case is developing, Google is silent, and users unsuccessfully try to exchange problematic smartphones for new ones – the manufacturer often refuses to do so. No official answer was published. This is another issue of the latest Google flagships, and it seems that the fatal band is coming to an end. Recently, we wrote about the flickering of the display for you, and earlier we learned about the "two notchach" and the overheating casing. In this case, it is certainly a problem of software nature, not hardware, but nonetheless, smartphone users for a lot of money can not take advantage of its basic and best features. Would you buy Pixel 3 XL without a camera? Source
