    When opening the camera I get text telling me to touch the screen or button to take pictures.

    Its very distracting, how do I get rid of it?

    I've never noticed my phone do that. Can you get a screenshot by pressing the power and start button together please?

    Are you using a lens to take your picture? If I just use the camera I get no text. But if I select a lens, then I get text telling me what to do.

    This is a lot like somebody else on the forum who has the volume warning pop up every time he wants to play something.. very odd.

    I'm heading to the Nokia Care Store. Let me see if I can find anything out for you! :)

    Edit: really sorry my problem took longer than I thought to solve and I completely forgot!

    I would see what the answer to this is or try it if he hasn't already before even thinking about a replacement.

    This is because you haven't used your camera to take a picture yet! This is fresh camera first time tip! It is easily reproducible - anyone who hard resets the phone and launches camera from hardware button you will get this till you take your first photo. I can take a screenshot after a hard reset for the sake of science if anyone doesn't believe this!
