Nokia 8 camera freezes when Opera is active.

  • Hi
    This happens with Nokia 8. No matter what Android, camera firmware or Opera version is used: whenever Opera is open, camera freezes or sttuters to the point of unusable state. Forever ... (until rebooting) To make things worse, even if you close Opera, you'll have to wait a while (impossible to know) before Open the camera again (something keeps going on in the background).
    I needed months, a tech-support visit, several re-instalations and full restorations to locate where the fault lied, but now is clear: don't open Opera and camera will work fine. Nearly flawless.
    Should add the very same thing happens when Google Play is open, but under no other circumstances.
    So I can´t use Opera with Nokia 8, having been my choice since Symbian days, and my desktop browser. Has anyone this problem? Is Opera aware of this (I think Nokia is)?
    Thank yoy very much and kind regards.

  • I also have a Nokia 8 but I cannot replicate your problem. I can have both Opera for Android and the Nokia camera open and running, repeatedly switch back and forth between the two and everything works just fine. No freezing or stuttering.

  • Thank you. That's weird! Do you have Opera sync enabled?
