    Hey! So I bought a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime a couple of days back and I bought it cz I wanted a good camera. The problem is that when I take a selfie then the image that's saved is the mirror image of the one I took, it "flips" automatically. It's soooo annoying. I tried checking in the settings, all I can do is rotate the image. Can anyone please tell me how I can fixthis problem, or if there is a good app that I can download to prevent this from happening? Thanks! Would appreciate any help

    Hello. I don't know. The last Samsung I owned had a few different modes for the front camera. Does yours have a mirror mode? You can get a Mirror app btw.

    But it does sound like a hardware or software fault. I think the Samsung Core series have had quality control problems. They don't use Samsung's Amoled screens, so they may be produced separately.

    I would make an enquiry from the supplier or network.

    Well I'm not sure if it's just a problem with my phone, I've heard other Samsung phones and even some iPhones have the same problem..... Also, the image only flips whrn I use the front camera, this doesn't happen when I use te back one. I've downloaded an app for now but it would've been easier and better if the camera worked properly =/
    Thanks for helping out though! =)

    Hello. Thanks for registering. You could be right.

    Do you mean a mirror effect, or inversion, though that can often be described as the same thing.

    Do you have any settings like these on the S6?
    What setting options are supported in front camera of Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge,

    There was an issue with Skype but you say it happens on photos.

    I will try to pass this on to someone later or you may get a better reply.

    Hi guys.. Well that happened to me also and it was really annoying.. I finally found an easy way to fix it.. So you just have to click on front camera settings and turn on 'Save as Previewed ... Thats all
