    I have a Blu Life XL running Android 5.1.1.

    I bought a knock off selfie stick, and when I plug it into the outlet, it will recognize the stick (by showing the headphones icon), but when I pull up the camera, it will not take a picture via the stick.

    It does not have the option to switch the volume buttons to take a pic, it just does it automatically.

    I tried this stick on my fiancés phone (he has a Blu R1 HD) and works with no problem. He also doesn't have the option to change the volume buttons, it does it automatically.

    I can't seem to figure this out. I'm really hoping it's not the phone...
