On my LG G4, the front (selfie) cam is working like a mirror: if I touch my left eye, the image will display the finger touching the eye on the left side of the picture. With the back camera, it works like a normal camera: the touched eye is on the right side.
That means also, for instance, that text is reversed when using the front cam.
Is that behaviour standard ? Is there a way to have the front cam behave like a normal cam ?

  • For default google camera app. theres no settign to mirror the image. So we have to use an app to do this. I searched, and many of these apps are photo editing apps, which is very huge. Atlast i found one app Flip Image - Image Flip (Mirror Image) : play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rectfy.flip This app just do what we need, flipping image and also its size is very less. I am using this app for mirroring my photos. Its the best. Jan 27, 2018 at 4:23

While the camera app is open and the front camera is selected, tap the 'settings' icon (the geared wheel) and you'll see an icon that looks like two heads in profile. They will be both facing the same direction by default. Tap them so they are facing away from each other. Now, while the image will still appear on the screen mirrored, the resulting picture will appear normal.


  • This varies by phone and probably by version of either Android or the phone's OS (MIUI in my case) but probably all or most Android phones will have a similar setting accessible when using the Camera app. Aug 30, 2017 at 2:44

in camera setting there is an option "save as flipped" turn it off
