Once you have opened the camera function: Tap the icon on the top left of the screen, then select front camera.

When it comes to applications for video caht, in most cases this should just work without any further input.

Re: Xperia S front facing camera

Hi, thanks for the post I found the front facing camera option but I am having difficulty making video calls.

In all of my previous SE's I had the option to voice or video call contacts which is not an option in the Xperia S. Any ideas?

I think skype opens it automatically but it is not very reliable.

Unfortunately none of our Android based handsets support native video calling. This particular piece of hardware is designed more for use with third party video chat functions such as Google Talk.
