Camera on low batt

4 posts in this topic

Hi. 0/

I bought myself this device recently and find the hardware and Android OS absolutely gorgeous.

The look and feel and the capabilities of Android are much superior to the iPhones which I used before. Think I'm not coming back to iOS based gadgets EVER.

But there is one problem with a device. I've noticed that when battery power drops below certain mark (40-50% i guess) all camera-based apps (camera, camcorder, barcode scanner) refuse to work and give blackscreen instead of taking pics, flicks or scanning codes. They start working again only if the device is charged back to more then 90%.

Quick google of the matter shows that there are similar (not the same blackscreen) occurences on other devices. The only suggestions there were to use nonstock apps which have lower threshold of denial on battery low.

Has someone encountered the same inconvenience? How to rid of it?

P.S. I would be very grateful if some good soul showed me to the topics about flashing recovery. Cuz i have problems there too.

P.P.S. Please don't go grammarnazi on this post. I've learned english from movies and video games mostly. And if you think I write it bad - you didn't hear how I talk it.

I've never had this problem...my camera app...even the 3rd party ones work well even in extremely low battery conditions(10-15%)...

I'd suggest you flash a custom ROM (like Metalounay)...if the problem persists...get it replaced from acer support...

P.S. Before flashing..install recovery...and Nandroid backup... :-)
