Camera issues on HTC EVO 3D: It's not easy being green

Its-not-easy-being-green How is the camera on your HTC EVO 3D treating you? While the debate rages on about how significant the three megapixel difference between the original HTC EVO 4G and the EVO 3D really is, reports are starting to come in that software issues are creating what might become an even bigger concern.

Some users on the official Sprint forums are reporting that the camera locks up after taking a picture, disabling all of the on-screen buttons. To correct this and regain camera functionality, users are forced to stop the camera process through the built-in task killer. (As I have experienced this issue intermittently on several occasions, I can corroborate that this does seem to be a legitimate bug that is currently present in the EVO 3D.)

G&E reader Jay is experiencing a different issue, but one that is just as annoying: his camera has actually been turning green. He tried taking his phone to Sprint, but they couldn't see any problems. A YouTube video demonstrating his problem is below.

Are you experiencing these or any other issues with your EVO 3D camera? Hopefully HTC is working on a fix, but in the meantime I'm sure our phones can really sympathize with Kermit the Frog: It's not that easy being green.
