Huawei Nexus 6P :: Slow Motion Camera Crash 100% Of Time
Dec 20, 2015
the camera app crashes on my 6p while doing slow motion video. I've seen a few mentions of this here and there on the web, with suggestions to factory reset / wipe cache, etc. I have tried this but no luck. I don't really see a definitive answer anywhere, but see quite a few complaints about it.
What happens is the camera app crashes when trying to take slow motion video, while zoomed in, either at 120 fps or 240 fps. I haven't seen anybody else mention this specifically while zoomed in, but that's what's happening to me. If I'm in the camera app and switch to slow mo video, then zoom in, move the phone around a bit, the app freezes and crashes with a "cannot connect to camera" error 100% of the time. I don't even have to start recording, the screen just starts to get jumpy, then eventually freezes completely. It's not a random thing, I can replicate the problem over and over.
Okay so I recorded some really cool slow motion shots. I can go into the edit screen and select the exact spot the slow motion should be. But when I go to send/post it the the video is completely in slow motion. Nothing in normal speed at all.
Just got my phone and it is completely stock. When using the video camera and switching between slow-motion modes (normal, 120 FPS & 240 FPS) the camera app crashes and I get the error message "Can't connect to the camera".
Then the camera wont work, no matter the app I use, that uses the camera. After a reboot it works again though.
Sometimes it crashes the first time I've changed the mode to 240, sometimes after cycling through the modes a bit, but it always happen and it wont many cycles (1-3). I've recorded functional 240 FPS videos, so that part works.
I've tried starting the phone in safe mode and deleting cache partition, with the same result.
There are others with the same problem, but it doesn't seem to be a common error. Is it a software problem or hardware, and is RMA the only option?
I find the camera takes darker pictures, especially in low light, compared to Note 5 (underexposed perhaps? Not a photography buff at all . Also, the snapping pictures in general seems to be slower vs. Note 5.
I currently have both 6p and Note 5 and truly find the Note 5 to have an all-around better camera. 6p but bad by any means, but tough comparing to Note 5.
today i tried using the slowmotion mode in the camera, and before you start recording the camera show good details but after you start recording the detail drops a lot, its like 360p or 480p....the resolution in fact is 720p but it doesn't look like it at all....is this how it supposed to be??
When I click mode only a few options come up.. selfie.wide selfie.interval shot.virtual shot and download. For those of you who say click download. I have already tried there is no slow motion option there either. I have seen other people's s6's when they click mode the slow motion option is there from the start. I'm worried.The slow motion option was one of the main reasons I got the phone .
I can't seem to find my way to FULLY wipe when I want to flash or try a new ROM. I just installed an RRO that resulted in SystemUI crash, I then went to reflash the ROM, same results. Decided to WIPE in TWRP and reflash the rom, the SystemUI FC is still there ! Wipe, Flash ROM, then Wipe, same result... What's wrong with my TWRP ? I am on the latest. I just restored an old backup, and I have the same FC of system UI !
Stock N5, running Marshmellow, rooted using Chainfires modified boot.img.
Able to set up face unlock. Seems to work. Front facing camera works fine as well. However a few days later I try to use front facing camera, it locks up, including trying to change face with face unlock. I turn face unlock off and front facing camera is back again.
I'm having a really weird problem with my phone. The wifi connection is super slow on my Nexus6P, but on my macbook it is fine as it should be. I tested on two more phones, one iPhone and my OnePlus one, wifi works fine on both of them.
I tried restarting my phone and nothing, I did a factory reset on my phone and the same problem still happens.
When I did turned of my router for like 2 minutes and then turned it on again, the wifi connection on my nexus6p worked fine for some minutes and then got slower again.
Just like the title says literally 99% of the time i go into Google maps the little blue marker is pointed in the wrong direction and I have to do the compass calibration where you tilt it front back side side then twist it. About 50% of the time Google maps tells me to do that. Is there anyway to have the compass calibration stick?
So never had this problem on another phone before. I noticed a couple times this week where I doing something on the phone, and look up and my clock is like 15 min (or whatever) behind. Not sure if it's related but it seems to happen when I lose connectivity in so much as everything says I'm connected to WIFI or LTE but no data is moving. I'll have to keep an eye for that one but the time thing has me concerned.
I just got my nexus 6p. Love the every bit of it but i hate it when every time i install new ROM and wipe dalvik. I need to wait like 5 to 10 min for optimizing app and it took out almost 10% of my battery each time. What can i do to make it faster?
I have been using WhatsApp a lot more than usual lately and there's something that's bothering me. While the screen is off, there's a notification for each message received. So, in case I have someone messaging me 20 times in a row, I will hear the notification tone 20 times. I know some apps limit the number of notifications by time and I'd like to do this with WhatsApp.
Is there some way to do this? To make it clear, I'd like to be able to set an option like "Only ring once for whatever number of messages every 30 seconds".
I was playing around with slow motion video over the weekend and wanted to post this because it wasn't obvious how to do it in the camera app.
In video mode, tap the gear icon and change the FPS to 120. It is only available in certain aspect ratios (it works in 16:9 HD). Record your video and watch it in the stock Gallery app for slow mo. You can adjust the slow-mo speed while viewing. I couldn't get the slo-mo to work in Google Photos.
There may be other ways to do this but this is how made it work.
My video recording in stuck in slo-mo, don't know if I am missing something or what. Camera Mode is not set to Slo-mo. I can set it to that and than back to Auto but it still records in Slo-mo. What is going on and how I can turn it off?
After switching to a custom rom from Stock my battery count haven't been the same, not talking about drain here. The Battery percentage indicator is degrading 2% at each time instead of 1% in normal situations. What should be done to bring back the correct battery calculations?
My camera has gotten slow in hdr mode. Meaning, I hit the shutter and maybe 2 seconds later it begins the process of taking the picture. It didn't use to be this slow...In non-hdr it's fast, as it always has been. I cleared cache on the camera app, no change...
I like to use this feature along with Coaches Eye app to analyze my golf swing. I should have probably researched this a bit better but at least I'm in Sprint's 14 day window of returns.Pick up an HTC One M8 which has SloMo or wait for the next thing?
I am having an issue where the touch screen seems to be unresponsive for a short time after unlock. For instance, if I unlock the phone via fingerprint, pattern, or slide the first touch doesn't respond and I have to tap whatever app or item I am trying to use. I'm using Cataclysm ROM with the most recent ElementalX kernel. Maybe it's a ROM/Kernel thing and I should try stock but just wanted to ask here.
