    I have had it since christmas, Set it up with a couple of apps ( FB, twitter, Instagram snapchat etc) i was using it for about a week and the front camera worked fine as did everything else went to bed one night left the phone on my desk. Woke up the next day the phone hadnt moved so hadnt been knocked or anything and the front camera had stopped working.

    Have tried rebooting, and doing a battery pull nothing changed reset the camera settings and nothing.

    Trying to avoid doing a factory reset any ideas.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does the rear-facing camera work normally?

    Try booting into Safe Mode, which disables all 3rd party apps. If the problem goes away, then something you installed is interfering.

    I tried booting in safe mode and still nothing. Selfie mode is completely gone on my phone and I have tried swiping left and right everywhere on my phone and tried numerous apps. Any other way to fix it because right now I have a a front camera for no reason.

    I know this sounds idiotic, but it happened to me. I recently switched phone companies, and when the sales associate put my cover back on the phone, she did it upside down. Once I realized what had happened and turned it around, I found that it was the cover and not the camera itself.

    Welcome to Android Central! So you're saying that the problem persists in Safe Mode?

    Welcome to Android Central! In that case, it may be a hardware fault, or a corrupt firmware. Is the phone still under warranty?
