Tapping on the circular arrow icon in the upper right corner of the camera app will switch to Honor’s 8MP front facing camera. Right away, you’ll need to choose between two different modes — Perfect Selfie and Standard Beauty — each of which offers varying intensities of the beautifying effect found on many other devices. Of course, you may want to make a note to turn off beauty mode if you find the results a little too… artificial.
Should you mess up Perfect Selfie (there’s some set up that involves taking multiple photos from different angles), simply swipe left and pull up the camera settings. From there, tap on Perfect selfie and then Edit personal info to go through the setup process again.
