    Just got my Note 4 and was going through the User's Manual and when I got to Camera I opened the camera app to shoot a picture. Matched the screen with the illustration in the manual and it did not match. Since I put a SD in, it showed on the screen. What was missing was the gear wheel that indicated the settings icon and it only showed 3 modes - Auto, Beauty Face and Panorama. I can't download more modes because the download icon is not there and I can't change the way the camera app interfaces because the settings gear is missing.

    How do get all these things back to the screen like it shows in the manual?

    to take a screenshot hold the power key and the home key at the same time....the screen should flash, then there should be a notification stating a screenshot was taken.

    Beat you to it.
    I believe I added the quick toggle for flash to the main screen from the settings screen.

    I have a screen shot now, took a while to figure it out but used the find in the manual and got it. tried doing what it said to get a screen shot but just got a shoot of my computer and not the screen. Hit the power and the home button at the same time. when to the album called screen shot and found a picture of my computer not the screen. I supposed to work since I delete it and the screen shot album goes away. when I hit the two buttons it clicks a picture and makes a new screenshot album but the picture is not a screen shot but a picture of what is in font of the phone. Maybe I need to take this phone back????
