Whenever i use my camera in daylight, the flash never comes on, even if i ask it to. And the same goes for when I’m in a darker environment; the flash is always active, even if it isn’t supposed to be. Don’t know what to do to fix it
you can control the flash behavior via the little flash icon in the upper menu bar of the camera app. It has three options: Always fire, never fire, automatically (= depending on the light situation). For me, it works just as advertised with both the stock camera app and Open Camera.
I always turn of smartphone flashes generally, btw. They just do not reach far enough and therefore worsen the image pretty much all of the time. I only use the extra light when scanning documents with my health insurance app occasionally.
This issue was already discussed in there: Problems with the flash in default Camera app.
Hi! thank you for your reply! I guess i wasn’t clear enough. My issue is that even when i try to control the flash behaviour in the upper menu bar, it still only flashes when it’s dark and never does it when it’s light.
