On the top right side of the screenyou will see the 5-megapixel front camera consist of f/2.2 aperture, this allows you to acquire more room or more space capacity to capture selfies within a wide area of 120-degree panorama. You will be able to accommodate more friends when you are taking selfies. Depending on the lighting conditions, images from the front camera can be blurred or low detailed. Make sure that there is sufficient light to use the front camera when you are capturing images.
This device is missing the ambient light sensor and it also short with a notification LED. So, you should manually customize the brightness from the slider menu regarding different lighting levels.
