    The bug is gone if there is only 1 input field. However, having multiple input field will cause this issue again.

    This bug is still present in 5.6 beta, I just tested our app and the keyboard still kills the camera feed on android.

    This also happens when native pop ups come up like NativeToolKit stuff.
    5.5.0f3 still bugged.

    Got the same problem, which still persists on Unity 5.5.
    Can use only Vuforia and Unity 5.3.7p2 for now.
