Note: Squeezing your phone will open the Camera app in the last capture mode you were using. When you squeeze again, the camera takes a photo, video, or selfie, depending on the capture mode.

If you turn on Advanced mode in the Edge Sense settings, you can squeeze and hold the lower sides of your phone to switch between the main and front cameras while you're in the Camera app. For details, see Enable Advanced Mode.
