Found the reply here. 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 ...

As a Nexus 7 owner, I can confirm for you that it does not have a LED flash for its front-facing camera. In fact, off the top of my head, I can't think of a single device that does. Documentation of a feature that isn't present is going to be hard to come by. A good verification of this fact, however, is in ifixit's teardown pictures (see steps 12 and 13). ...

There is a way but its Extremely dangerous. I highly recommend not doing this as its neither for your device and the risks are too high. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1699299 As for WhatsApp Web, it allows you to use your computer for WhatsApp conversations. The draw back is that both your Android and your browser needs to be connected ...

Some devices with Kitkat can be found with Permission manager in Settings. If it is enabled and an app asks for a permission that the manager is required to scrutinize, you might have inadvertently blocked it, or could be default block for certain apps. To ascertain that Skype is denied the Camera permission or not, go to Settings -> Security -> App ...

I believe it is the beauty mode The 5MP front-facing camera adds one extra control to this menu and that is for beauty mode. There are three options: auto, manual, or off. The manual option lets you move a slider like most other smartphones that offer a beauty mode which blends the skin tones to hide imperfections Also called beautification mode We ...

Sources of facial detection, on a phone that detects face rests at: /system/vendor/pittpatt/models /system/vendor/pittpatt/recognition I'm using CM13 for my case. They are located there. Maybe facial detection might do that

Based on this forum post, which shows the below image, the S6 is certainly capable of 1440p video. It seems that it's not the default setting. It's unclear why so many review sites that I found have misquoted the resolution.

I had issues with my nexus 5 front camera not working randomly (switching to front camera would give a blank screen). wiping cache fixed it. I suggest you try it.

Interesting question. I found that the back camera does kind of "distort" the face when used for selfies, probably because it was constructed for capturing objects/persons at a longer distance (probably because of the "barreling" effect etc.). The selfie has less MP but it does show the aspects of the nearby face more correctly IMO. Even concidering the ...

Resolution governs quality of pictures The back camera invariably is of higher resolution and is meant for better quality. Typical resolution is upwards of 10 Megapixels Front camera is not meant for high resolution and was intended for visiting the image during video chats. With demand for better quality (including "selfies", it is now typically upwards of ...

From GSM Arena, the secondary (front) camera has 1.3 MP, and the camera settings provide 1.2 MP as the highest, so I'm not sure if it was 2 MP before. (Camera resolution is related tightly to hardware capability, so it's strange to be able to have higher resolution in the first place). As for missing HDR, it seems it's caused by Google Camera, as reported ...

JPEG with 100% compression quality is not lossless but maybe the picture quality will be good enough for you, here are two apps I know which has the ability to set the compression quality to 100%: Snap Camera HDR (JPEG Quality: Best = 100% according to the developers website), trial here Camera MX

This is a common problem with this unit. I contacted the manufacture about it (http://www.orientdeal.com/orientphone-one-max-5-inch-1080p-screen-quad-core-1.5ghz-2gb-ram-32gb-rom-android-phone.html) and was told that due to the heat that builds up around the camera the modules fail. They recommend replacing the entire camera module. My unit they told me was ...
