Camera control fails with rear-facing camera on Motorola Droid Turbo running Android 6.0.1

I've been testing my PowerApp and I have a situation where the Camera control fails.  I've set the Camera property to the numeric ID 0 and this works on Iphones, IPads, and even some Android devices like the Galaxy s7 running Android 6.0.1.  However on a Motorola Droid Turbo running Android 6.0.1 the camera control will turn black when the camera property has been set to 0.  Interestingly the front-facing selfie camera will work when the camera property is set to 1.  I've set up a slider to increment the camera property, but 0 through 5 do not operate the rear-facing camera.  Furthermore once the PowerApp attempts to set the camera id to 0 on a Moterola Droid Turbo switching back to the front-facing selfie camera results in seeing a gray square with a light gray circle and a forward arrow.  If I switch back to the rear-facing camera at this point I see a gray circle with a light gray circle and a backwards arrow.  This tells me that 0 and 1 are probably the right ID's to use on the Motorola Droid Turbo, however using the rear-facing camera will break the camera control.  It will also prevent the native android camera application from being used on the phone until the phone is restarted. Can someone from the PowerApps team confirm that 0 and 1 are the correct camera parameters to use and that this is consistant from phone to phone?  In addition can someone from the PowerApps team replicate this bug or provide a workaround.  Perhaps this affects many other Android models...  Please help!


Still low resolution when using Ipad back camera, if using front camera or phone its all good. But back camera Ipad has terrible resolution 640x480
