    For the last two days I have been having this problem with the camera and Snapchat. I go to take a snapchat and it fails to take, a message then pops up saying that "Snapchat was unable to open the camera. You may need to restart the application or your device". I then go to open the camera and that closes straight away with a little software message saying "Unknown error" at the bottom of the screen.

    I restart the phone and the camera and snapchat works but then very shortly after it goes back into the problem.

    Anyone else getting this problem?

    I'm running:

    Android Version: 6.0.1
    OxygenOS version: 3.1.4

    That usually solves the problems to most applications. Clearing your cache is very useful.

    Same problem happened in my phone. Buf after like 3-4 hours, i was surprised to see that the camera works, so does snapchat. Its fixed on its own.

    It's happening the same thing to me right now. Should I just wait and clear the cache?

    Clear the camera and the snapchat cache separately. You can do this is the Settings > Apps > Camera > Storage > Clear Cache. Then do the same for Snapchat

    my phone is having these random system crashes for no reason. Snapchat is very laggy when I try to open it. is it just me or oos 3.1.4 has a lot of bugs?

    I think that may be just you unfortunately. Check the latest patch notes possibly
