    Hello everyone
    fI have been facing this issue since morning and front camera isn't working either.
    I have tried reboot, opened in safe mode and hard reset the device and nothing solves the issue.
    please do help ASAP.

    seems like a hardware issue. Will approach local authorised service center.

    I have the same "Camera is being used by other apps" text, but everything works just fine.

    I just faced this issue. I noticed I had Sensors Off activated. I deactivated Sensors off and rebooted and camera now works fine.

    I faced similar issue after my phone got slipped accidentally. I went to customer service center in my city where they fixed misplaced front camera lens to it's original position and it worked fine since then.
