Re: M4 Aqua Front camera button

Thank you for the reply,

 

i dont think it is a hardware issue.

The button to switch to the camera on the screen is gone, and i dont know how to use the front camera in an other way.

The tab (button) on the screen at the camera is just gone.

Ok that's different I thought you were referring to the physical camera button. 

 

settings > apps > all > camera > clear data > restart the phone > check again.
