LG G3 users have reported that the camera app crashes every time they try to open it, especially when zooming in and out. Here are a few solutions to fix the camera crashing problem on the LG G3.

Reportedly, the problem occurs more on T-Mobile LG G3 units. Apparently, T-Mobile units have a hardware problem with the camera sensor. If you try the following solutions and the problem is still there, it is a good idea to send your phone back to T-Mobile and request a replacement.

The problem is with the camera app. Try to wipe data and cache of that app by going to Settings > Apps. If that doesn’t work, the app is corrupted and cannot be fixed without an update. If you want to use the camera, download a third-party camera app from the Play Store. There are many good third-party camera apps like Google Camera.
