Re: I can't use the camera below 5% battery level

Because if the camera is writing data to the storage at the exact time the phone turns off, it could damage the system file (the processing is done in the system by referencing parameters set in root files) and prevent boot if corrupted.
Its far easier to just deactivate camera before critical levels to prevent that one in a million corruption being you.

Other phones seem to have no such restrictions.

Why don't you set this 5% limit to a smaller value?
