M1AJQ.N960USQU1ARL1 received today on Verizon. Just updated. No mention of camera at all in release notes .
The details: Release date: 01/04/2019 Android® Security Patch Level: December 1, 2018 Software Version: M1AJQ.N960USQU1ARL1 What's changing: The current software update gives you the most up to date Android security patches on your device.
Samsung said the update is this month, then have to wait for TMobile to push it out. How ever long that's going to take.
I just applied the ARL1 update from T-mobile.
It appears to have fixed the problem!! I have not been able to make it freeze which was easy to do before the update (even after a reboot). 👍
I'm on ATT too and tonight was the first time when I noticed the camera freezing when trying to record in low light with the light on :-(. I also noticed the motion stabilization being greyed out after that and it worked fine for a couple of short videos once I rese the camera settings. then it froze again. I rebooted it and it started recording again.
So dissapponted - I'm still within my return period for this Note 9 which otherwise I've enjoyed a lot . I feel like Samsung should have been more forthcoming and offer a faster resolution to this major bug. Not sure how people lived with this major inconvenience for so long.
Though I hate to have spent all this time setting up the device to my liking I'm goign to return it if it wont get fixed on ATT within a week. Too many choices out there to put up with a mediocre device that Samsung wont stand by. This is my 2nd Samsung phone but maybe the last.
