    I've noticed recently that when I am in the Nokia camera app and I tap the screen to focus there is a slight wobble from side to side if the phone is in portrait orientation and up and down when in landscape. The phone screen will continue to wobble as long as it is focused on something. I know its not me shaking because it does it with the phone standing on a flat surface. It doesn't wobble when not trying to focus. It also does it in the normal camera app. Any suggestions? Should I hard reset maybe. Seems like a software issue to me since it only wobbles when focusing. I can upload a video if my explanation isn't clear enough. Thanks.

    My camera has become useless since about a week ago... Getting magenta streaks or the camera doesn't come on at all and the screen stays blank. Uninstall and reinstall of Nokia camera didn't help... Frustrating.... I guess I am left with a factory reset, but I don't really want to do that...

    I read somewhere (Don't remember where though...) that if you disable "double-tap to wake up phone" and restart the phone, it will fix it.

    Just tried this. The screen still wobbles when focusing in the camera app. Very frustrating. Day time pics come out fine but I can't take night pictures at all right now. I'll try hard reset tonight and see if that works.

    I'm not seeing any wobble on mine. I stood it up on it's own and focused on some text and do not see any wobble.

    That's weird. Never had that happen on mine. Almost seems as if it is something to do with the OIS going a bit wonky because when it's focused, the image should do the opposite and be much more steady.

    But "double tap to wake up" is already disabled as i never enabled it before.

    I just got done with a hard reset on my phone and the issue still remains. Looks like I will need to get it replaced again as I think its a hardware issue. Do you think I'll have any problem getting a replacement again as I've had my refurbished model just over the 30 days that AT&T says is the warranty period for a refurbished phone? Or should I just go straight to Nokia with it?

    Ended up having to get it replaced. No issues with new phone so far.

    Good to hear you got a replacement. Did they say what the issue was likely to be, had they seen it before?

    They had no idea. They looked at it like the phone was possessed or something. I think it was the OIS going crazy.

    Lol, yeah my guess would be something wrong with the OIS. Nevermind, I was just intrigued to see if they knew of the problem. Obviously sounds like they didn't ;)
