PopUp Camera and Snapchat

    Hey,
    So my 7 pro arrived today and is working perfectly, but I've noticed aa small issue with snapchat and the Pop up camera. First off, whenever you take a snap with the front camera and close the app (full close or just in background, doesn't matter), the front camera automatically pops up when opening
    Snapchat again.
    This doesn't only occur when opening the app by tapping on the app icon, but also when you open it by tapping on a chat message (Then the camera pops up even though you're just in chat, not on camera).
    This annoys me and concerns me because of the wear on the front camera.
    The only way of getting rid of it is switching back to the main camera after every snap you take.
    Anyone else noticing the same thing?

    This is because of the way snapchat behaves, has nothing to do with the phone. Launching the app always looks for the camera. Something to get used to with a pop-up front facing camera.

    Yep. Snapchat is always accessing the front camera, no matter what. You can't even restrict the app from camera permissions, otherwise it won't work.

    Snapchat needs to make their app play nice.

    That's right they would need to be the ones to make the change. I just don't see this happening any time soon since pop-up cameras are a mad thing right now. I'm sure the Zenfone 6 will have the same experience.

    I'll just write thousands of feedback reports to snapchat, no need to grab my camera while I'm opening a text message..
    Yeah I know it probably won't be solved anytime soon, still just wanted to share my experience

    Yeah, it sucks. It's actually one of the reasons I've completely ditched Snapchat.

    That is a common issue with Android and Snapchat. There always is some kind of issue.

    In this case it's not Android and Snapchat, it's Snapchat and OnePlus Hardware.

    Yes but I have had many Android phones and was stating on how they are all affected.
