    That is normal. Unexplainable as to why that white flash happens, but it seems to happen with many other of our phones (mine included). I wouldn't worry about it, as it does not mean you have a defective phone.

    Depends on how dark the room is... If your talking about a bedroom with no lights and the curtains closed then it would be normal for it to show up as nothing... Cameras need natural or artificial light... Back lite cameras use a censor to brighten the image in low light but even those images can get really grainy if the lighting is next to none...

    If you want to turn off all lighting from the phone completely, don't forget to turn off Focus Assist (and your flash).
