If this doesn't help, then hard reset your phone (Factory Reset). Settings>About>More>Reset The Phone
If this too doesn't help, get your phone to phone repair shop, but i think it's bad app installation. Anyway, doesn't hurt to try what I suggested you. Report back if you fixed your phone. :)

About Lumia Camera Apps, NO, those are Lumia Only apps, for their hardware only.

Since this is Samsung, does it have HERE maps and HERE drive? If no, is there any alternative? (free nav in off9 mode)...

Can we download Lumia Camera Apps? Any manual camera apps available for this WP-Samsung?

It is weird to see Lumia have everything, while both are the same WP...

> In reply to Meng @ 2014-11-10 10:43 from thc2 - click to readWell, you don't need customization and flashing on a system that is almost perfection. If you don't like micromanaging every aspect of your phone (like on Android) and you can settle with little but yet many customization WP8.1 is offering than go for the ATIV S i8750. It is mention that it will be able to run on the new Windows 10, but so far anything is speculation regardless to any WP phone.
I am not planning to change my ATIV S in near future (read: Until start to fall apart, lol), cuz now with the latest official (not PfD) WP8.1.1 is a totally new device, it is re-born again. I am loving it! :)

Do you think the Ativ S will recieve more future WP updates?
Should I go for the Ativ S (WP) or LG F7 (Android)?
I'm a rom junkie user when it comes to android but now im thinking of sttling down to wp which to me looks great and is epic with 8.1
Do you think I should make the jump and switch to Windows Phone (Ativ S)?

ATO. I can also report that I am frequently getting 'fast battery discharge' message since the update. Not happy about it at all. In general, battery draining faster than before.

> In reply to Owner of Ativ S @ 2014-10-18 23:35 from mnhp - click to readCan you tell us on which CSC you are rolling your ATIV S? Is it ATO or NEE or something else? Do have in mind that having WP8.1 Preview for Developers doesn't count, we are only interesting is that is an Official Samsung 8.1 firmware.
