Samsung EPIC 4G :: Front Facing Camera

Sep 1, 2010

Are you able to use the front facing camera to take a pic of yourself? I'm not an ego maniac, lol, just an idiot I guess. One more question, is there any other way using the stock programs to assign a picture to a contact without having to use the phone's own camera? i.e. linking a pic to contact from facebook or from the sd card?

Samsung Fascinate :: Getting A Front Facing Camera

Sep 23, 2010

just went in to the verizon store to see why my girlfriends fascinate(i have an incredible ) wouldn't update. here's the conversation:

guy: it was pushed out to the first 1000, but things went wrong so they pulled it back(talking about the update i500.DI01)

us: ok so we shouldn't be worrying?

guy: no. but you'll get it sometime next week. then you'll get one the week after(didn't say what it would include) and then there will be one in november that will activate the front facing camera.

us: wait, what?

He showed us the 3 little dots on the top of the phone(sensors and i guess a camera).

He said that he talked to a samsung rep yesterday in the store and this is what he told him. the guy actually has a samsung fascinate and showed us so i'm going to believe him.

If you look closely at the 3 dots, the one on the left is alone. the one(s) on the right kinda have two different colors(light sensor and proximity sensor) so i still am going to believe him.

HTC EVO 4G :: Access Front Facing Camera?

Jun 28, 2010

I have recently seen quite a few people on here looking for an easy way to access the front camera. Search the market (or Google) for an app called Mirror 4 Evo. periodically do a market search for Evo and you will find some good apps. Some made for the evo and some will tell you if they work on the evo or not.

HTC EVO 4G :: Front Facing Camera Better Than IPhone?

Oct 5, 2010

I downloaded the Tango app and its great to communicate with iPhone 4 users. When testing it out with a friend being in the same place, I could see him clearly but he couldn't see me. We were standing next to each other in the same kind of light (street light at night). I could see me on his phone but it was very dark and it was more of the background light, i don't get it i thought that the Evo front camera was better than the iphone 4's front cam?

HTC Desire HD :: Front Facing Camera Available Or Not?

Sep 30, 2010

I'm currently a Desire owner and contemplating pre-ordering the Desire HD. The deciding point for me is if it has a forward facing camera or not...

Nowhere on the internet mentions a forward facing camera. HTC, when I emailed them, stated the phone does not support video calls, however I then sent an email saying it looked like it had a forward facing camera on the earpiece and they replied to confirm that yes, it was a forward facing camera.

Looking at the pictures of the Desire HD, at the top right of the earpiece / speaker you can see a small object that looks like a forward facing camera.

Despite the email from HTC I'm still sceptical because it's not been mentioned anywhere else, including on their own specs on their website.

HTC EVO 4G :: Front Facing Camera Curiosity

Apr 28, 2010

Will anyone really use this for anything other than taking a pic of yourself? (at least early on) I hope a feature like this with video call capability works with all carriers...especially the new iphone 4g (im an HTC man, but the fact is so many ppl will have the new iphone). i have the feeling we will be the firsts with this technology and never really get to use it on a regular basis with this particular phone.

HTC EVO 4G :: Front-Facing Camera Angle

Jun 12, 2010

I've just been fooling with the front facing camera and I noticed something that maybe some of you can explain more thoroughly. When I have the camera held vertically, the alignment is great, but when I turn the phone horizontally the image has a funny angle. It is almost like the lens is angled to the right, which would mean that it is slightly angled down when held vertically. Am I just getting goofed up by the "mirror image" issue? This isn't a problem, but it does make self portraits while being horizontally held pretty weird.

HTC Incredible :: Dinc Front Facing Camera

Jun 1, 2010

I believe DroidDave mentioned this in another thread over the weekend and I thought, "Hah! yeah right..." But I was just standing outside in the sun and noticed that it does seem to have a tiny lens in the top left corner of the phone. It could not be very good quality, but it does seem to be there... This is not wishful thinking on my part because I cannot see myself ever having a need for a front facing camera anyway, but it is interesting.

So has anybody done this yet, I could imagine 2 small mirrors attached on to the back of the camera would do the trick to angle the lens to face the front. It would have to be clipon to work over our cases. Any pics of this actually being done, if not lets get some pictures of future attempts at this. That would be finding fantastic.

HTC EVO 4G :: An App To Change Megapixels Of Front Facing Camera

May 27, 2010

Okay I've decided to stick with sprint/get the evo

but i was wondering..

Is there an app to change the megapixels of the front facing camera?

My friend has an iphone and she can actually download an app to change the megapixel from 3.0/3.2 to like 7.

Now I love taking pictures and webcaming but 1.3 is going to take horrid pictures(i mean there is the 8 megapixel on the back) but I'd love to take a self-portrait

so i was wondering can you change the megapixels of the camera via an app in the android market and if so what's the app called.

HTC EVO 4G :: Front-facing Camera Didn't Work?

Jun 28, 2010

EVO has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride of highs and extreme lows for me. I purchased an EVO on launch day, almost a month ago now. The second day of owning the phone I discovered that my front-facing camera didn't work. I had to wait three weeks (for more to get in stock at Best Buy) to get it exchanged for a new one.

Now, after not even having the new phone for a week... IT IS BRICKED! I downloaded and installed the OTA update. Then, apparently like many others, I accidentally re-installed the same update. I didn't even mean to. Just out of habit of checking for updates I made the mistake. Now, I am bricked.

After reading the forum posts about the bricking issue, (after mine was bricked ) I immediately went back to Best Buy to do ANOTHER exchange. Of course, they don't have any in stock and none of the other stores within a 45 mile radius do either. That is 12 stores total. I called every single one of them myself just to double-check that the Best Buy employee actually called them.

Now, I am on a waiting list... AGAIN! I desperately want to love the EVO. This is the most excited I've ever been about a cell phone, but it's been such an emotional nightmare for me. I don't think my high blood pressure can take any more of this bull sh*t! I have never owned an HTC device before. I have always heard that they, well... suck. Now, even though I want so much to love the EVO, I am starting to believe they do suck as a company. People on here will say "Oh, you get these sort of issues with any device launch." "It's new technology, and comes with the territory." Well, I say BOLLOCKS! Bricking a phone for accidentally installing an update that's already been applied? REALLY?

Sprint is about to be flooded with calls from pissed off people like me who aren't stupid people who made this mistake. Not everyone checks internet forums for every device they own before doing anything to those devices. This is a massive failure in programming and is about to cost them a ton of money. Not to mention the negative word of mouth.

I don't want to give up on EVO, but somebody please tell me what I am supposed to do? If a new one isn't in my hands by Friday, I have no choice but to go to Best Buy and get my money back. I will just wait for the next best thing to come out, that ISN'T AN HTC.

Ive seen people online saying the x10 has a FFcamera, but I had a look at the pdf manual of the phone, and there was no mention of a second camera. That would be a massive negative for me seeing Fring has already brought video calls to Symbian phones.

HTC Incredible :: DIY - Make A Front Facing DINC Camera For Video Chat

Aug 31, 2010

Has anyone rigged up a device to convert the back camera into a front facing camera? I may experiment with this at some point. In the past I have simply sat in front of a mirror and pointed the camera into the mirror, this way I don't need to flip the phone back and forth to video chat.

However, I am envisioning a device (perhaps made of plastic or cardboard... business cards might even work) with angled mirrors on it, that can sit on top of the phone. One mirror would be facing the camera, the other would be facing you. The second mirror would mirror your image to the mirror facing the camera. Just a thought, I haven't played with this, so the image may be upside down, requiring another mirror. Attached is a paint mock up. I'll post my results when I get around to building one. I encourage others to try and improve upon a design. Could be a cool little project.

Android :: GSM Phone With Front Facing Cam?

Jul 1, 2010

I am currently using an e71, a phone Nokia released back in 2008. I am looking to upgrade to an Android phone, and here are some of my requirements.I am on AT&T and can not switch. However, all the phones I have used, include my current e71 are unlocked. I can not bear to see my phone locked down by AT&T with all their custom crap. Therefore the phone should work on AT&T 3G bands here in the US and should be available unlocked.It should have a front facing camera. I use Fring on my e71 and video chat with my parents all the time over both 3.5G and wifi, and I LOVE it. This is by the far the only feature holding me back.I would prefer a physical qwerty like the e71 but a virtual one is ok too, but the camera is a must.
