  1. My pixel 2 suddenly had blurry focus/not focusing at all and then camera crash problems with fatal error message popping up at times, but most of the times just crashed with no message.

    I’ve tried everything this and all other guides suggested. and just as I was about to give up on my pixel 2, I tried the weirdest suggestion to turn on screen rotation and rotate my phone everytime it crashed… BOOOM it worked! not 100% of the time, but atleast it got it working! google should check on this if it has any relation to screen rotation.
