    I barely use the selfie camera and I just went to try it and it wont pop up, i can hear the motor but it doesn't pop-up and I get a message on screen saying to make sure its not obstructed which it is not. I defended OnePlus over and over again shuttti g people down that were worried about durability. I said no way it would be a problem especially because I'd barely ever use it, now here I am with it not working. I really don't want to have to send it in for repair, I doubt they give you a loaner phone or anything and I don't wanna be without a phone for however long. Has anyone had issues with their front facing camera(pop-up) stop working, I'm hoping it so show corrects itself.

    I have encountered this issue today as well. I seldom take selfies so just this week i decided to start using face unlock along with the fingerprint scanner so I could get more use out of the pop up camera.

    Today I get a video call and the camera simply would not pop up. I tried different apps with the same result, I tried the camera app(both default and gcam) and got the same result.

    The only thing that got it to work again was a restart of the phone and it has been working like normal since then. This however now has me concerned and I have stopped using face unlock. Much like the original poster, I have been defending the durability of the mechanical part since I got the phone and it would be a real shame if this becomes an issue, especially for users who seldom use the selfie camera.

    I guess all we can do now is hope for the best.

    Update : Mine works fine again, I think so e soda or something got on there and dried up so I cleaned it up and it started worki g and had been perfectly fine ever since! Still love this phone and happy with my purchase. Only issue now is that after a little over a year with the phone I've started to notice some battery degregation and need to charge more often but that's to be expected with any phone so not a major concern. I'll probably get it replaced sometime in the next year and plan on holding onto this phone for atleast 3-4yrs . Hope everyone who had/has an issue hot or gets it resolved.
