Android phone locks quick capture

Posted at — Apr 26, 2016

I discovered a new feature on my Android phone this morning. Over the last couple of weeks I had been accidentally pressing the power button and the phone has been turning on the camera application and I haven't quite understood why. This morning I started playing with the power button then I realized that when the phone is off with the display turned off click once in order to turn on the login screen then click twice and the camera pops up allowing you to take a quick photo or a quick video.

Now that I've been going through all of this kerfuffle with the GoPro I wonder whether or not it wouldn't be a good idea to get a waterproof Android phone. And that way I could leave my GoPro for action videos.
