  • The way Android apps work is that they can call up the camera. 
    For example, if you switch to camera in apps like Facebook Messenger or instagram, you will see a live feed of the camera- same goes for the selfie.
    This is already how it is working. With our flip mechanism, it will trigger a flip when an app requests the camera to start. 
  • But that is not the correct Way
    If You take a feedback from other User...No body will agree that I m opening an comment section and I want to attach an image from my phone but camera is opening.

    The way Facebook works is that when you select the "camera icon" in a comment , it will show you the camera output in the icon for camera - plus your other photos.

    Facebook Camera is calling the camera to engage as it has been given the permission to do so - as it is on any other phone - and that default is to call the front facing camera.

    On ZenFone 6 you will see then that the camera will flip open, because it is being called by Facebook App to do so.
    One phones with pop-up, you will see the selfie camera popping up.

    I will however bring your feedback back to our RD, and see if we can do anything about it.. although it could potentially cause a lot of breakage with the Facebook app functionality instead.
  • I do agree with you with the functionality. I hope you understand my Concern.Poping Up self camera Each and Every time without any Request is not an Good Idea. It should only Come if I am requesting for It.

    Otherwise we are unnecessary just increasing the Delay camera Popup count.

    Thanks for understanding my point.

  • In addition to below response. I would like to communicate one more thing ...

    If you will open the Attachment section in Telegram App then Telegram is not poping up The delay camera. It is just opening the rear Camera of phone along with image on Phone .

    That means, It's Behaving different in Facebook/Telegram and on Whatsaap.

    Where as Functionality should be same for All..Until and Unless user is calling the Selfy camera it should not popup.

    I understand your feedback fully.
    What I am relaying is that it is the App itself that dictates how their camera implementation works.
    Facebook defaults to showing the camera feed BEFORE you press camera. It shows it already in the small preview.
    Facebook defaults to front facing camera (thats why it flips up).

    Telegram, or other apps, may not do this, or they may default REAR camera (and ofc no flip is happening).
    We cannot change how their apps work.
  • Agreed You can't change the Apps Behaviour.

    But can't You Take a feedback with your user on the Behaviour of Flip camera while commenting with photo on Facebook.

    I Guess most of people would be agree with me.

    However. I will wait for your R&D team response..

    Thanks a Lot

    For sure we are collecting your feedback - but I dont follow what you expect us to do in terms of Facebook's own Commenting system inside their app? As you also agree, we cannot change their app - comments in Facebook is still part of their app?
