    I accidentally stumbled upon a similar incident. It wasn't the dialer because I have no access to it as it tells me to use a backup pin. but I've managed to make the camera crash to the home screen somehow. I believe this was a result of holding both volume buttons and opening numerous menus while using the camera. My guess is that it overloads it after a certain amount of times and causes it to crash. I've gotten the android UI to crash like this before. I will try to recreate the scenario and update you guys on this. it's on a Kyocera Hydro Wave. Running android 5.0 I believe.

    Its not about weather or not your lock screen has copy-paste option, its about weather or not you can hack in with enough characters, or do you have this security flaw in general. Guys, if you testing, test that.

    Or you just factory reset the phone with a recovery.
