2x camera issue

I am posting just to get a feeling is that only my specimen issue, or does someone else have the same/similar issue.
When I use the supplied Camera app, take few pictures, switch to 2x camera, maybe wander to Video and back, then suddenly (not always) when I switch to 2 x camera (or zoom) the Camera app "freezes" and stays frozen. I have got to close the camera and restart it (is starts in 1x mode and works) but then the phone is "spoiled" until I restart it - e.g. any attempt to switch to 2x gets camera app frozen. When I try to switch to Video it would say (after 5 sec hangup) that it "Cannot connect to camera - Dismiss/Try again"
Also when that happens, the built-in Torch cannot be lit, after 1st attempt and failure the button in tray is greyed out and 3rd party torches say "cannot connect to camera".

Only me or anybody else?

give him hard reset or reinstall the firmware?
I'm having a similar issue.
I can't zoom with the back camera without it freezing. I have already done a full reset with no change.
My flashlight doesn't always work either. That includes the flash. I'm not sure if it's related or not...

This is my second Razer Phone 2 with camera issues. The camera would randomly come on when pressing the power button on my last one.
Otherwise I love the phone!

I ran into the camera zoom freeze bug and the flashlight bug within a day or two of each other, hard reset seemed to fix both problems. Hope I dont seem again o.O

Unfortunately this is a known bug with the firmware at the moment.

I'd recommend installing the Google camera mod for now for camera needs until we get a fix
