Recently I became aware that the default camera application in Samsung phones (I have S23 Ultra) requires the "Nearby Devices" permission in order to function in any capacity. You cannot even open the app without this permission granted.

I understand why this permission exists, but the majority of the time it is not needed. I cannot think of a single justifiable reason why this permission is a requirement for app functionality. It should at least allow permission options such as "ask every time", or ideally the option to completely deny that permission.  

I no longer use the Samsung camera app because of this, and the existence of this feature actively makes me want to not use Samsung products.
