Why are the photos I take with the front camera a mirror image of the photo in the preview?

There is a mirror reflection option in the capture settings for the front camera. If this setting is turned off, photos will not be a mirror image. The photos will be in line with the actual orientation of the subject’s body, and a mirror image of the capture preview.

If you want to want to save a photo that looks the same as the HUAWEI P9 photo in the capture preview, you must first switch to mirror reflection mode for the front camera, then swipe left to reveal the settings screen and turn on Mirror reflection .
