I am also having this issue. It started after I updated the phone in early April. Samsung, is there a patch in the works? To work-around this issue, I'm having to use a different app to take front-facing photos correctly.
Same for me! I contacted Samsung and they tried to clear a bunch of cache, and restore factory settings and nothing worked. The backup didn't happen right and I lost of lot of data Samsung sent me to a local repair place and they couldn't figure it out either. So Verizon, had a new phone sent to me since mine was still under warranty. Well, the new phone is doing the same thing!!!! Its so aggravating. I dont know how Samsung claims not to know anything about it.
