Some Razer Phone Owners Experiencing Issues with the Camera App and Screen Dimming
The Razer Phone isn’t bad for a first attempt. It’s Razer’s first phone, and its innovative 120Hz display won it early praise from reviewers. But some users are reporting a few glaring bugs with the camera, screen, and fingerprint sensor. Hopefully, Razer’s looking to fix all that.
One bug automatically applies filters to photos even when the filters are disabled. Users report filters being applied without choosing them, leading to unintended results. Factory resetting the phone doesn’t seem to fix the issue, and it’s unclear if it affects all camera applications or just Razer’s first-party camera app.
A reply from a Razer staff on the official Razer Phone forums states that bug reports will be passed on to engineers, though that doesn’t mean they’ve confirmed the issue is present.
Another bug allegedly has to do with the Razer Phone’s screen: some users report that it sometimes dims after about a half hour of gaming. This issue has also been passed on to Razer’s engineering team.
Those aren’t the Razer Phone’s only problems, supposedly. Fingerprint sensor options randomly disappear from the Security section in the Settings menu, and the phone’s maximum volume sometimes reduces inexplicably.
Razer engineers have been made aware of both bugs, and have promised factory images that’ll address them soon.
Hopefully, we’ll have a fix for some of the Razer Phone’s issues before long.
