ZenFone2 Bug Report
Model: -
Firmware/APP Version: Camera
Frequency of Occurrence: Camera
Rooted: Yes
APP Name: -

my GF just got her brand new zen phone 2 and it's front camera isn't working. The first thing we did is tun the automatic update, so I have no idea if the camera worked before or it's the update who messed it up. I'll attach the software and hardware information screenshots.

We have tried to reboot it, update the camera application, force close  and clear cache as well as installing other camera application, but it didn't help/work.  I have also installed phone tester and it showed information only about the back camera, no front camera (on my nexus 5 it shows both front and back)

Any suggestion on how to fix\resolve the issue?

Thank you

Hi alentorz,

Open calculator and type .12345+=
SMMI TEST will open then select single test and perform fornt camera test.
If didn't work reboot to recovery mode and wipe cache partition or perform factory  rest .

If the problem still present there might be hardware issues. .
Please visit nearest Asus service center.

I am having the same problem as well as my friend who bought his Zenfone 2 right after mine in June.  It's like the icon to switch cameras doesn't exist. The SMMI test won't work either. This has been a recent issue within the last month. (I'm not a big Selfie taker). Im wondering if its a recent update.
