[HELP] Nokia 8 Front Camera Mirror Image problem

alright, so i just bought nokia 8 today. i so far like the phone a lot, until i realized that all the pictures i take using my front camera gets mirrored / flipped horizontally from the preview display when i took the photo (e.g. if the display shows head is on the right, the photo shows that the head is on the left). i opened the camera options to see that it is extremely barebones and doesn't have the "save pictures as previewed" option that most andriod phone cameras have. does anyone have any idea on how to fix this problem?


  • That sounds like a app bug. We just need to wait for a update.

    We also have a issue with opening the last taken picture from within the camera app. It opens the previous picture and not the newest one.
  • It might be a feature and not a bug... However slightly confusing to use the camera mirrored when the end result will not be what you see.
  • Do we have a fix for this???

  • On my Nokia 8, when taking a dual or PIP photo it shows mirrored (potentially okay but not really necessary in my opinion) but the worst part is that it saves still mirrored. Why would I want the pictures from the front camera to save mirrored in PIP and dual shots? The answer is I don't and there is no option to change it

    The picture from the front (selfie) camera is stored the way other people see you, as in any other camera - but the screen is like a mirror while composing the picture - to make is easier to frame the picture properly.

    It's been like this in all phones I've used so far, but it's a popular request to store selfies mirrored, and it may be added in a future update.

    First please try a selfie in front of a road sign or a billboard with text - are you still sure that you want to save the picture mirrored?
