Automatically flipping up camera in WhatsApp calls
So this maybe happens in other app as well (those I don't use so I'm not aware off). When someone video calls you in WhatsApp the camera flips up automatically even before you accept or reject a call. The point is that most part of the time the phone is laid down flat and the camera motor forces the component to open. It's not strong enough to complete the 180 degrees rotation (thanks God…) but again you can notice the motor struggling to get that flip up task done. It can eventually happen with the mobile in your pocket and the motor will force the camera to flip up damaging itself or even injuring the user. In these cases the hardware should wait for a user feedback (accept the call) to then start rotating; this happening to me several times while the mobile was flat in the table and I presume someday earlier or later the camera motor can be seriously damaged because of this automatic behavior.
