    Hey there,

    I go into my camera app, and press the button that switches between the normal camera and the front-facing camera, and every time I want it to go to the front-facing camera, the camera app crashes and closes. I've not been able to use my front-facing camera for a few months, and I was wondering if anybody has had any issues with it themselves?

    This happens to me whenever i try to launch camera app, so its like my back camera is doing this. I get the little flip of the screen then sometimes it loads up the camera buttons but not the center where it shows the camera feed, but crashes right away. im trying to figure out why because my camera is one of the most important parts of my phone to me. If anyone finds a fix please let me know. im thinking of reseting my phone and seeing if that works but dont really wanna go thru that trouble

    Hmm, I've never experienced that on my 8X. I'd recommend a hard reset, the backup feature if enabled will reduce the hassle involved in getting set back up.
