    Anyone seen this with L950 or Win10 photos app? When reviewing photos from my camera roll, my pictures will pop up full screen as expected, than go blank for a second, before reappearing. Annoying as hell. So as you are swiping through your photos, each picture appears, goes blank, reappears - before you can swipe to the next pict. I am saving pictures to the microSD card instead of the phones built in memory, maybe that's the issue. Wondering if anyone else has this issue.

    Also I can't seem to figure out the Living Images feature of the phone's camera. I have the camera set to shoot Living Images (which creates a short animated GIF-like photos), but only some of the photos turn out that way, like maybe 25%. Anyone know why it's like this? Also, I'll admit I've not really put any effort to it, but can these living images be edited so you can choose a single frame out of the photo? Poking around the phones built in photo editor app, I didn't see anything that seemed to allow this.

    Just got back from a trip and generally loved the photos coming out of this phone. Coming from a 1020, this camera is WAY better in just about every way.

    So, I have some really weird issues with the camera and the SD card. The upcoming firmware is supposed to fix a lot of the SD card issues. I have problems with the camera crashing and rebooting the phone, taking a picture and it doesn't save, videos being choppy, etc. I have a very fast and highly rated SD card from Sandisk so I doubt its the card, especially considering all the issues that everybody else is having with SD storage.

    In terms of the living images...I have the same problem. About 1 of 3 actually show as a living image. I *think* it has to do with how long you hold the shutter in the focus position before actually taking the picture, although I haven't been able to prove that yet. That's just my working theory.

    I can concur that there were a few times where the camera seemed to lock up the phone forcing a battery pull...as well as to "seemingly" take a photo that isn't saved. I hope they iron out these bugs out of what is an otherwise excellent camera phone.

    My GF has both an iPhone 6, and a Galaxy 6 (which she just choose over the L950 because of it's "bugginess"). We just came back from a trip and when comparing images saved onto a PC, we both agree that the pictures coming from the 950 look much better than the other two leading phones. In low light conditions, the 950 looked a lot nicer.

    I'd be really interested to see if anyone can shed light on how the Living Images work (or not work).
