    Okay, I get it. You can't snap a picture by tapping just anywhere on the screen of a BlackBerry 10 phone running 10.3. You also can't take a picture with a camera that way either. For all those people out there struggling to take pictures, please use the volume buttons. Pick one or the other...volume up or volume down. It doesn't matter, either one will do it. It's nice to be able to have a choice of stills or videos from the same window. It's nice to be able to tap to focus on the spot you want without having to long press and drag to that spot. Quit crying and learn to adapt to change...

    It's great that we can use the volume keys to take a photo. But if you really want to take a photo by pressing the screen, I can press the camera icon on the bottom-middle of the screen.

    Errr.... 10.0.0.0 guys. Volume keys have worked on the Z10 since launch when I bought.

    It's actually a pain in the button to use them though. Left handed the phone wants to drop out of your hand and right handed covers the screen.

    Volume keys have worked for taking pics in bbos and bb10.
    I have found myself using the volume keys more now with 10.3 than any other version.

    You can take a screenshot on any screen by pressing both the up and down volume buttons the same time, not only at a phone call.

    I know Im talking about hitting ONLY the volume up button. Its a bug in 10.3 I think that I work around, no biggie. It only happens once in a while.

    As others have said, that feature was always there. It is changed though, you used to be able to start video recording with the volume buttons as well when you were in video mode. Now that there is no video mode, you can only used them to take pictures (or pictures within a video if it's already recording). For me, It was always easier to hold the phone still and not lose focus using the side buttons. Not a big deal, just preferred it the other way. There are 2 buttons, so they could make one for taking pics, one for starting videos.
