Been using the phone for 3 days now, works great except one thing. I keep by accident activate the camera, yeah it's a great camera but I can't stand where Nokia placed the camera button and I wish there was a way to just disable it.
Not sure what to do. I live in a very rural area and there are no Verizon stores to check out other options.
I know the HTC 8X is older now, and has less memory, but would I have the same issue with constantly turning on the camera?

I am coming from an HTC Trophy and the camera button is on the bottom right.
So no it's not going off in my pocket, it's when I am using the phone the camera button seems very sensitive so I am taking pictures while talking and holding the phone.
So I assume there is no way to disable the camera button?

>"Under Settings > Camera settings, there is option to 'prevent accidental use of camera button'
I don't even see this option on my 928
All I have is "photos-photos+camera settings. There is no where that I can see to disable the camera button.
Again the problem I have is when the phone is not locked, if I am not careful how I hold the phone it is quite easy to hit the camera button

Maybe you are squeezing the phone too tightly, it seems, and may end up breaking it with that death grip. Do you hold the phone with your left or right hand when talking? I could see this happening with the left...you'll just have to adapt to the phone's ergonomics.

I never understand this penchant to keep a smart phone is your back pocket like a wallet. Maybe I'm old school to keep my phone in a holster on my hip, away from pocket change, pocket knife, keys and other enemies of the phones finish. This way I never come into contact with my phone unless and until I need it. Anything else you're asking for trouble.

When i hold the 928 with my left hand all my fingers have to be placed just right or I hit the power button or even worse the camera button.
Figures this phone was designed for right handlers

Don't buy this case especially if you are left handed.

Apparently when I put this case on my phone the case does fit nicely but it hits the buttons to much, presses them down a bit which is causing the camera to be easy enabled. When I took off the case, problem went away, yes my finger does rest on the camera button, but it does not enable the camera without a continuous press.
I need to find another case or I guess I can cut out around the buttons on the case so my fingers come in direct contact with the buttons

I've never seen a phones camera button anywhere but where the 928's is... lolTry out my first Windows 8 app, ModernCalc! It's free and I would love to hear your feedback!
