Ingress blows up when you take a picture

Ingress prime is incredibly unstable. We all know that we don't know why it hasn't been fixed. Another issue with this instability is when I take pictures with my camera. Over 50% of the time that I've got Ingress open and I try to take a picture, even if it's a portal picture within the game, Ingress will implode and need to be rebooted. This is very annoying while traveling as I like to play Ingress and take pictures of the new places I'm visiting. It can't be done without a lot of frustration. Please fix.

    Short answer; get a better phone

    Long answer; stop your phone from **** background apps or exclude just exclude ingress...

    s22+ so quite new.

    ingress restart each time i switch to photo even if there's nothing else than ingress and the photo app.

    every niantic games restart now when more than 20sec on background even on best current phones, that didn't happened before.

    if the s22+ isn't enough ....

    This bug have been in ingress for almost 2 years now and reported multiple times but they didn't bother to fix it.

    It also crashes then you submit a report to niantic support and attach an image and then tap on that image.

    Anything that doesn't involve scanning portals is irrelevant to niantic and likely won't be fixed unless it's a 1-line of code fix.

  • The Samsung photo app is a massive bloated tool. So take photos using the normal camera app, then select them from your photo roll when submitting the portal. It's 100% a memory issue.

    it's not when submitting it's when i am acting as a tourist

    playing ingress switch to take random photos, back to ingress => reboot.

    same with oneplus 8
