My Powerapp using front facing "Selfie" camera some peoples phones and Back camera on others

Hi there

 

I've created my first app using this Youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovLIwnj6QjU

 

On my phone and about 3/4 of my colleagues phone it works properly, however, on a couple of my colleagues phone it uses the selfie camera, and when you go to toggle between the camera, it doesn't toggle to the rear camera.

 

There doesn't seem to be any correlation with phone model or anything as me and my colleague who it is failing with have the same model phone.

 

Is this a phone setting perhaps?

 

Cheers

Camera ID could be inconsistent from IOS, Android and Window, but it should be consistent among the same model phone.

However, as an alternative workaround:

Move away from Camera Control, change to use Insert>Media>Add Picture function.
This utilizes the built in cell phone camera. With this method it will be compatible with all camera modes.
