    I’m leaning towards the Pixel 5. Fancy a slightly smaller feeling phone, don’t like iOS, and although I’d have preferred some higher end specs, the price isn’t too bad.

    Anyone else who are still using the 2xl having back camera issues with the latest updates?

    My camera app crashes when I try and use the back camera. It's widely reported in the play store review section, so seems like an issue caused by Google but I haven't seen a response from them.

    Tried Google support and they were as useless as ever. Stating I'm out of warranty and would have to pay for repair. They took no accountability for causing the issue despite the thousands of reviews over the past couple of months complaining about this.

    I get it, the phones old and won't last forever but it was still good enough for me. It seems unacceptable that Google can claim the software issues aren't their fault.

    Do other camera apps work fine?

    No but I don't think that necessarily means it's not software instigated, as it could be lower level.

    Perhaps I'm wrong I just find it surprising that there seems to be a sudden surge of people reporting the same issue in the playstore.
