  • 3. Switch between front-facing and back-facing camera.
  • 4. Switch between take a picture or record video.
  • 5. Take an actual picture (or video, if you switch option 4).
  • 6. View all pictures that is already taken.
  • 7. Focus area. You can move focus area anywhere. It will have 3 color attached to. White (like in the screenshot) is normal focus. Red indicate that currently, camera don't have correct focus. Green indicate that it has focus. Green is shown only when you move focus from default location (in the center of screen). Note: Not all phone have auto focus. In that case, color indicator will not be accurate.
