    I just noticed last night that my OPO isn't recording with the flashlight at night/dark.
    When I start recording a video the flashlight turns on and after a second it turns off.
    Just wondering if there's anyway to turn it on or something?

    Or is it a known bug?

    I have the same issue.
    Also, if you change the flash to always on then it will stay on.
    If you put it to Auto then it will always off.

    Another problem is that recording video is a hit and miss. Sometimes, the video recording is under exposure and darken to a point where it looks like night time even during day time.

    Sometimes to fix it, I have to reboot the phone again and again to get it to work. Sometimes it works after a few changes in the camera setting.

    It looks like the camera was stuck in low ISO mode but when it wasn't then I get low quality video recording even at 1080p. At 720p I got pixelation video and grainy.

    What does really work in this phone? Nothing seems to work as it should. A piece of junk with lot of bugs.

    I've the same problem. Since last update video is so buggy. 4k does not work full stop. Middle of the day, I just get a black screen. I also get lines coming across the screen during recording and also during normal use. Wifi won't work with Bluetooth enabled and I'm continously getting reboots. Anyone else's opo as buggy as mine?

    @Damien your screen has to look like this. once it's like my screen you can do video recording with the light on. figured it out by playing around
