    Loved my Z10. Love my Z30 even more.

    But really, does anyone find the Camera Icon on right, lower front a pain and problem?? I don't have big hands, but I CONSTANTLY open the camera, unintentionally when my thumb pad or what ever presses the Camera "inconvenience" key. Really...give us the option to get rid of. Please? thanks, BB! a fan for decade, KLG

    I had that happen a couple times, but not a regular occurrence. I guess it's part of having a Touchscreen.

    It would be nice to have that whole bar hidden and be able to bring it up with a swipe. Sort of like the quick access setting menu from the top.

    Maybe a sideways peek from the bottom right corner.

    Happened to me a couple times on a Q10. It's not that bad but I can see that happening more often on a larger touchscreen.

    Happens every day of my life. Digital said what I was thinking perfectly.

    Happens to me all the time, both on Z10 and Z30. I agree an option to hide it would be ideal.

    You're not the only one - happen to me all the time.

    I have it happen once in a while. Not too often though. I don't mind the trade off to having quick access to the camera.

    Yes, the camera opens all the time. I'd like to get rid of the icon altogether since I hardly ever use the camera function.

    I hope it never disappears. is it any different from people using ios or android and their docks?
    Do they have issues or is this uniquely BlackBerry?

    I could possibly see this as an issue on larger phones when trying to swipe from the left and having the palm touch it

    I think the option to create a swipe to unhide the dock open would be unnecessary.

    Maybe to hide it altogether if your really anal about it or an option to doubleclick if it's really causng huge issues for some.
    I just don't see BlackBerry giving you the option to take away items. Maybe to replace them but the. Your left with the same issue of accidental app opening


    Personally this isn't something I come across at all on my z10.

    I'm fine with the phone and call search there as I use it a lot and I like that's it's uniformed on all devices.

    It never happened when I was on a Z10. Now with my Z30 when I go to lock the device, my palm opens the camera almost every time I reach up to lock it. So I always lock the phone with my camera opening. I'm not complaining too much, I love this phone. Just have to learn to lock it differently. Getting tired of locking it with an open camera

    Does the Z not have a button on top to lock the device?

    On my Z30, I don't ever hit the camera button accidentally, but I am opening the phone app on the other side all the time, which I hate because I have mistakenly dialed people.

    It does. When I reach up to the top to lock it, I either will open the camera with my palm or open the phone app with my pinky, depending on how I'm holding the phone 1 handed. I know it is stupid user error though. So I'll stop complaining. Cuz I really love this phone.

    Lol glad it's not just me who manages this. That and also until I found the option to turn it off I also regularly started the voice control.

    I accidentally press the camera also. Mainly when using one hand to unlock and my skin kinda rests on the screen

    I now seem to be opening my camera constantly by accident. Especially when I swipe up from the lock screen. Real annoying!! I guess going to have to be more conscious about it to avoid whatever I'm doing to cause it.

    Major screwup. Constant hassle. Would be cool to have a lock, swipe, or something. While you are at it BlackBerry, how 'bout two more keys down der?
