  1. LG’s renaissance continues with the G3, which could be the best Android phone of 2014. The G3’s stunning Quad HD screen, high-quality camera, and sleek design should put it on everyone’s wish list.

  2. The instructions to remove the camera app do not match the software path on my LG G3 – so instructions were useless.

  3. I tried all three steps, even physically replaced the G3’s camera and still the same. I am starting to wonder if it is because of firmware fault. I have original LG fw though

  4. Like others here, I cleaned, I tried different software even switched a different camera out (I have two vs985) NADA WORKS!
    I can bang on the phone in different directions and eventually get a decent pix. (**)
    Using the FLASH, the test pix momentary reads crystal clear then to fuzzy focus. Hummm.
    What’s left is 3 things.
    . . 1.) IR is failing to obtain the correct distance.
    . . 2.) Firmware.
    . . 3.) The ultimate permanent, any BRICK WALL.
    (**) BUT THEN… The Internal compass is misreading… maybe?
