    I know this has been left behind, but maybe this will help? You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    Looks like you can write an app to print the model # for the rear camera, and use the model # for the front camera. I assume they are identical cameras...right?

    Nope, the front camera is generally 1.3 Mp on lower end phones. I'm pretty sure I know what module it is but as you can see, we have bigger fish to fry.

    If it helps, I poured through the book and it makes no mention of the camera.

    One question I had for those who actually took the phone apart... is the camera even hooked up? I am curious about this as well. I just figured they got lazy and used a generic base for the phone and a higher end model using the same base has a front camera. Sort of like when you buy a cheap car without certain options, you can see the score lines in the dashboard for the components that you don't have.

    Just my personal belief, but front facing cam that we can not access is used by the government to spy on who is using the phone. Just think of all the things your phone cameras have seen that you may not want people to see? 

    Obama just passed some legislation allowing him to usurp all phone, call & text, records. 

    I put electrical tape over both of mine. Peels off easy when needed, and leaves no sticky mess, plus is dark black and can not be seen through by a camera lens.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that is happening. Also, people can hack your phone to look through your camera.

    I always feel like somebody is watching me! ROFLMFAO I thought I was a bit over paranoid but that takes the cake! Sounds like something a tweaker would do no offense.
    And if they were trying to watch you don't you think they might take a closer look at you because you taped your cameras?

    Well, they can't see you if you tapped over them. And I run all my social media sites and darknet sites through tor and privoxy so noscript disables scripts that attempt to hijack my cameras and hides my location and digital fingerprint. You can never have too much privacy on the internet. If the government tried tracking my IP address through Facebook or twitter, they'd think I was on the equator in the middle of the ocean lol or in another weird location lulz right now I'm in Panama ;)

    I am pretty sure this phone lacks a front-facing camera.

    I just had to take mine apart to fix the mini-USB piece of junk and I took a picture.

    The size-ratio is almost dead on for each image.

    Yes there are three "sensors" but two of those may be one sensor. I know at minimum this is the light-sensor (for auto display brightness) and another sensor for something wireless with a television or some crap, I can't remember what I read.'

    Anyway, judging by the sizes of these things and the size of the part itself, I serious doubt it is a camera and if it is, the resolution would be so poor that it wouldn't be worth it.

    Anyone ever do anything with this? Chances are it's not a camera, but then again, there are people who've taken their phones apart and say that it is a camera...
