    There is no front camera in Galaxy Ace S5830 - it's proximity sensor!

    Hey those are sensors as mentioned above... those sensors are used for things like auto switching off thescreen light when phone near cheek / ear when call is made...
    To be more elaborate make a call... catch the phone in ur hand and cover those two dots using ur thumb finger nd see the magic...

    A proximity sensor usually is divided in two parts, the emitter and the receptor.

    The emitter is usually an IR LED, the receptor should be a photodiode or a phototransistor.

    When the IR LED is lit and theres nothing infront it that reflects its light into the receptor, the receptor is in "off" state.

    When the IR LED is lit and theres something infront it (like your face :p) the light is reflected into the receptor and turns its state to "on".

    basically what you do is get a crow bar and remove the front of the phone. remove the proximity sensor with some pliers. Insert a camera then superglue back together. Then send to samsung and pay them a fortune and they will work out the rest. When you get it back it will work with a front camera. (dont forget to flash with iphone software - then facetime will work)

    *ps - not really.

    Threads like this one seem to crop up in every device forum now and then .. I'm laughing pretty good at this one (along with everybody else ;)).. no way it gets closed as long as it remains non-abusive toward the OP, etc.



    Well, maybe a little bit of abuse.. :D

    I own an Ace and actually I never thought that was a front camera, I thought that was a front notification led.
    Kind of dissapointed when find out it was not.
