Samsung Galaxy S6 huge camera problem [solved]

At first, when I bought my new Galaxy S6, everything was working perfectly. After a while, though, the camera started acting weird from time to time - purple lines and stripes, when taking pictures or recording videos. It seemed to be happening only when inside a building with artificial light from bulbs. After a while, as you can see in the video, things got much worse.

So, that was prior the Android 5.1.1 update. After updating to 5.1.1, clearing the cache and resetting the settings of the camera app to default ones the problems seem to be gone. So, if anyone has similar issues, do not rush to the store to return your device, first try the above method . Hope this helps someone

Update:

So, apparently, it somehow fixed itself. Not sure if it was after the latest Android update or not, or if it was a hardware problem with the soldering of the chip and, after a while of the device being hot from the sun, charging or other source of heat, thus fixing the soldering, but it is a fact - I haven't seen the problem for a while now.
