[Q] Nexus 5 front camera problem ( desperate for help)
I just have a problem that has been bugging me for a while with my Nexus 5 (4.4.2)(not rooted) and i cant seem to find a fix for it. i've been all over the forums about it yet the only case i found similar to mine the guy went and exchanged his nexus for a new one from LG.
so heres the issue, my front camera just does not exist anymore, it was working fine the first couple of weeks then one day i just realized i don't have the front camera option anymore on the camera app. that option is no longer there instead of 5 options there are only 4 options being listed (HDR+ / +- (Exposure) / settings / flash ) it used to be after flash. the flip option was there and now flip option is no longer there. i cleared the cache and did every possible thing mentioned online and it still didn't work. i downloaded focal and it couldn't connect to the front camera. even instagram/snapchat does not have the flip option anymore. is there any solution or fix for this?
i still haven't performed a factory reset i'm leaving it as a last resort.
things i've tried:
- restarting in safe mode (still no front camera option).
- uninstalling apps that might have access to front camera.
- clearing caches.
-installing other camera apps like focal. (which has the option but its unable to connect.)
i hope i made my problem clear enough and i thank you for giving your time to help me on this.
