    When I click on the camera icon, then click the bottom right icon (photos). My list of photos comes up as thumbnails. Now, some of the photos in there show half of one picture and half of another picture. When I tap on the corrupted picture is shows fine, no errors so it's almost like the thumbs are corrupted themselves. Is there a way to refresh them to fix this?

    Corrupted thumbs

    Plug your phone into your computer. Upon connecting, choose the connection type "Disk Drive" and your computer should recognize your phone and SD card storage. You want to open and browse your phones internal storage (Removable Disk) and not the SD card at this time. Click and open the folder labeled "DCIM". Once opened, click the folder inside named ".thumbbnails" .. After you open the folder, you will see a lot of RAW files. Erase all these files. This will wipe out your thumbs, and force your phone to create new thumbnails.

    I've run into this problem myself, and this was the fix for me. I hope it helps.
